Under-pressure De Boer convinced Palace will turn corner

Frank De Boer is astounded that his side have come away empty-handed from Burnley after their 1-0 defeat, but the Palace boss saw encouraging signs.

Amazingly, this means that Crystal Palace are the first ever Premier League team to lose their first four games in the league without scoring a goal.

It would seem extremely harsh for Palace's owners to task de Boer with changing the identity of their play but only give him four PL games to do it before sacking him, but the Eagles have had success in firing managers in the past and this situation seems to be more dire than others.

Wood said: "I've got ambitions and I'd like to prove a lot of people wrong - people will always say things, but it's for me to go out and do my best for the club". "When I'm still the manager of Palace I will give 100 per cent", he said.

The first of today's two games in the Premier League comes from Turf Moor as Burnley host Crystal Palace.

A catastrophic backpass from Lee Chung-yong gave Wood a golden chance to open the scoring after just 169 seconds, and the New Zealand global made no mistake with a fine first-time finish.

"We think we are doing it the right way, Steve knows that, the board knows that". As well as Lee's horrendous mistake, profligacy in front of goal cost them here.

According to the Telegraph, Palace chairman Steve Parish has held talks with De Boer over his position.

Then, in the 89th minute, Palace defender Scott Dann was presented with a virtual open goal but he headed wide.

Despite having to defend their lead for an hour and a half including injury time, Burnley comfortably kept Crystal Palace at bay.

Regarding the way Palace had gone behind, De Boer said: "Of course, you don't expect that".

Salako said: "He's won stuff, managed Ajax, managed Inter Milan, you're looking to learn from him, grow and see what he's got to bring, but that dressing room is a very fickle place".

'I can not believe we lost, there is still frustration about the result but not about our performance, ' he said after watching Scott Dann miss a golden chance to equalise in the 88th minute.

"As we've been successful I've been able to play my part in helping the team and the club grow".

Parish, who led a consortium that purchased the club in 2010, told fans: "We are four games in, it's a awful start but we have to stick together". "I thought they were the better side". De Boer himself shrugged off suggestions he had been given an ultimatum: win at Burnley or else.
