Bakary Sako scored the only goal as Crystal Palace continued their revival under Roy Hodgson with victory over Burnley at Selhurst Park.
The Mali international cut in powerfully from the left after good work by Christian Benteke and then drilled a left-footed shot that went straight through Clarets goalkeeper Nick Pope.
Palace almost doubled their advantage from the restart when Ben Mee cleared from under his own crossbar, with James McArthur lurking.
The visitors introduced new loan signing Georges-Kevin Nkoudou in search of an equaliser, but Palace held on to secure a sixth Premier League win under Hodgson and move away from the relegation zone.
Palace will swap south London for north London in their next Premier League fixture, as they travel to Arsenal on Saturday, 20 January (15:00 GMT). Burnley host Manchester United at Turf Moor at the same time.
