The Clarets remain seventh in the standings, with 34 points from 23 games, but have not win since beating Stoke City 1-0 on December 12.

"The margins were tight early-season when we were winning a lot of games and the margins are tight now", Dyche told a news conference.

"It's a bit of a tough run at the minute, but over the course of the season, it's a hard one to judge".

Palace have now suffered just one defeat in their last 12 league matches and while there will still be some moments of anxiety, mainly in the closing stages as another priceless win was so tantalisingly close, this was another performance to warm the hearts of the South London faithful.

The Red Devils are now overstocked in the positions Fosu-Mensah would normally be considered to play in and so he was sent out on loan to another Premier League club to learn his trade.

Crystal Palace's pressure was ever-present in the second half, with a great block from Charlie Taylor the only thing that stopped Wilfried Zaha giving Palace a two-goal cushion.

Rain will turn to a mix of freezing rain, sleet and eventually light snow this evening and continue until early morning Friday . Wind chill values could be as low as minus 15 degrees from northwesterly, then southeasterly winds in the afternoon.

"I have a very positive feeling about our group of players, we have a talented squad, as our results have shown, so I think we will continue to do well but we have to be on it every week".

"It was a close-but-no-cigar afternoon", Dyche said. "We started to really try and be more productive than we were first half".

"Second half, we were at least decent and thought we probably deserved to scratch a draw out of the game in the end".
