Premier League weekend round-up, November 24-25

Crystal Palace ended its eight-match winless streak with a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park as Burnley's unconvincing English Premier League campaign took another turn for the worse on Saturday.

James McArthur scored Palace's first goal from open play at home this season in the 16th minute, and Andros Townsend secured the win with a fine goal 12 minutes from time.

Sean Dyche's team, with just a single point from its last six games, finished seventh last season but the Clarets are a team devoid of confidence. Relegation looks a real possibility.

Palace built on its deserved point at Old Trafford last weekend with a win that provides Roy Hodgson's side breathing space — three points — from the bottom three.

Player to watch

James Tomkins: The defender has been one of the few shining lights and a vital component for Palace this season. He delivered yet another composed display at the back against Manchester United, thwarting Jose Mourinho’s side’s attacks on numerous occasions. Burnley have struggled in attack this season, but Tomkins will be key once again if Palace are to end their winless home league record this campaign.

Man City face a Bournemouth side who are coming off the back of three straight defeats, will they extend their lead at the top of the table to five points or can Bournemouth stop the rut and cause an upset?

Watford boss Javi Gracia wants his side to rediscover the form they had earlier in the season and he's targeted Leicester as the first step towards that goal.

Huddersfield vs Brighton

Huddersfield come into the match with a three-game unbeaten run. They jumped from the bottom to 16th and could move four points clear of the relegation zone with victory today.

They are still in a vulnerable position though and will need to be at their best - especially as in-form Glenn Murray will be waiting for his opportunity on the Brighton bench.

Brighton though are without a win in three games but victory could push them up into 10th place should Leicester lose to Watford at home today.

Man City vs Bournemouth

Raheem Sterling will be the main man for Man City today. He has been involved in nine goals in five Premier League appearances against Bournemouth scoring seven and assisting two, averaging a goal or assist every 48 minutes.
