De Boer's position fragile after another loss for Palace

Burnley FC news Nick Pope eager for more action after impressive Premier League debut

Frank De Boer may well lose his job after Crystal Palace made it four defeats from four at the start of the season, without a goal being scored, losing 1-0 at Burnley.

The Eagles' four-game record is the worst in Premier League history and Palace are understood to already be looking at potential replacements for De Boer.

Crystal Palace legend John Salako has urged Frank De Boer to be more arrogant in order to turn things around at Selhurst Park. "(The future) is for other people to decide but while I'm the manager of Crystal Palace I will give 100%", he told reporters.

Inside three minutes, Lee Chung-yong's back-pass from the halfway line was pounced on by Chris Wood, who curled in a first-time shot from 35 metres past stranded goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey. "If I leave, I want to go through the front door". It was clear that Palace needed to take their chances more efficiently if they wished to score. Its best chance fell in the 89th minute to Scott Dann, who glanced a header wide from inside the six-yard box.

After a month of umming and ahhing Palace opted for De Boer as Big Sam's successor in the Eagles dugout in June - just under eight months after his embarrassing 85 day spell at Inter Milan came to an end. "Right now I think we have to go back to the comfort zone of our players and if they feel - and I feel - and everybody's on board with that and it's in a 4-3-3 system then we're going to play 4-3-3".

For this game at Turf Moor, he changed formations - ditching the three-man defence he favoured in losses to Huddersfield, Liverpool and Swansea - and Palace dominated large parts of the game.




"There was a very positive vibe in the team, so I am very positive for the future". "There was only one team that deserved to win today and that was us - although that is football".

"He has been active in the game and kept in touch with us throughout the game".

Ajax have always played the kind of football that De Boer likes to play, they have the players that are capable of playing that kind of football and are comfortable with the ball at their feet - this is the exact opposite of Crystal Palace.

At the time of his appointment, it seemed unusual that Crystal Palace would go for somebody like De Boer.

A win for Sean Dyche's side lifts them up to seventh in the table.

"Everybody knows you can not expect us to win every game".
