Here are the player ratings for the encounter between Crystal Palace and Burnley :-

Burnley

Vicente Guaita – 6Made some good stops coming off his line but was beaten too easily for Burnley’s second goal despite not being offered much help from his defence.

Tyrick Mitchell – 5Got the chance to stretch his legs going forward plenty of times but the final product lacked somewhat. Struggled defensively in what was a below-average performance from the youngster.

Joachim Andersen – 6A mixed first half like many of his teammates. Should have done much better for Wood’s goal in trying to clear the first ball but then made a sublime pass for Gallagher in the build-up to the equaliser.

Marc Guehi – 7Will be over the moon to get his first goal for Palace but will also be aware he needed to do better for both of Burnley’s goals in the first half. Recovered somewhat in the second half though but still beaten in the air a handful of times.

Joel Ward – 4Caught ball-watching for Burnley’s third goal as Cornet was left completely unmarked at the back post. Not the best day at the office for Palace’s reigning player of the month.

Cheikhou Kouyate – 5Given more freedom due to the absence of James McArthur but was lost at times trying to win the ball back. Got lost in the box for Wood’s goal and was outjumped by Ben Mee for the opener.

Luka Milivojevic – 7Involved throughout and didn’t look out of place despite not having a regular run of games this season.

Conor Gallagher – 7Excellent skill in the build-up to Benteke’s second goal, chesting it down before a brilliant chop allowed him to pass into the Belgian’s feet. Continued to put himself about in what was a very scrappy game to take part in.

Wilfried Zaha – 6Started the game well but his impact was felt less as the game became more scrappy in the first half. Still threw himself about with usual gusto and was always a willing receiver on the wing. Smashed a volley against the Burnley crossbar on the hour mark.

Christian Benteke – 8Started the game excellently and finished past Pope well with the help of a slight deflection. Not that the Belgian will mind. Missed a good chance shortly after but then smashed his second into the net after great work from Gallagher.

Jordan Ayew – 5Quiet afternoon despite the chaos going on around him. Was presented with a good chance early in the second half before being taken off but deflected the effort wide.

Substitutes

Michael Olise (for Ayew 58′) – 6Given more time than usual to make an impact but was unable to show off his talents much in a battle with Charlie Taylor.

Jeffrey Schlupp (for Gallagher 81′) – N/A

Odsonne Edouard (for Milivojevic 87′) – N/A

Crystal Palace

Nick Pope-7Touched a Zaha volley onto the bar in the second half and could do little with goals

Matt Lowton-6Seemed to rile Zaha on more than one occasion, occasionally exposed for pace

James Tarkowski-7A couple of key tackles and challenges, booking brings ban

Ben Mee-7Super first half header and part of improved defensive showing after break

Charlie Taylor-7Got forward well on occasion and had a strong second period

Johann Berg Gudmundsson-7Didn’t offer enough with too many passes sideways or backwards. Had two second half chances but didn’t get hold of either

Ashley Westwood-6Didn’t offer enough protection to back four in first half and yellow card means a suspension

Josh Brownhill-5Burnley needed to find a way to combat Gallagher in first 45 and the Clarets couldn’t provide it, more solid after break

Dwight McNeil-6Carried a threat with ball at feet and did his bit defensively

Maxwel Cornet-7Wasn’t in the game in the first half but smashed in a stunning third and was more involved after break

Chris Wood-7Found a goal, as he often does, but still a touch short of his best

Substitutes

Jay Rodriguez-5First change but couldn’t find a chance.

Matej Vydra-7Had the last five minutes and had late chance to win it
