Crystal Palace 'don't have to panic', says under-fire Frank de Boer

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

A Chris Wood goal condemned Frank de Boer's side to yet another Premier League defeat, with toothless Palace failing to score yet in the current Premier League campaign, though they did manage two goals in a League Cup win over Ipswich.

The loss at Turf Moor is Crystal Palace's fourth in a row, and increases the pressure on the London club's Dutch manager Frank De Boer.

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. "(The future) is for other people to decide but while I'm the manager of Crystal Palace I will give 100%", he told reporters.

With all of the top title contenders in action on Saturday and entertaining fans in some spectacular fixtures, the focus moved to a bottom-three side on Sunday, where Crystal Palace continued their horrendous start to the season.

"I'm convinced we are going to achieve it".

Nevertheless, Palace, while showing they are adept at shooting themselves in the foot, remain the only team in England without a league goal. With just a few minutes to go, Cabaye crossed the ball for a certain tap in for Dann but it was astonishingly headed wide of the goal.

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

"I thought they were the better side", Burnley manager Sean Dyche said of Palace.

Querrey had defeated Anderson at Wimbledon in July and the South African added: "Against him, it's just a couple of points here or there".

"I said before the match I had a good feeling that the squad have confidence, but they didn't start with that confidence, and maybe that is the result of the goal we conceded".

Indeed, Palace remain the only team across England's top four divisions who are yet to score this season, although Scott Dann missed a glaring opportunity to change that statistic in the closing stages, while De Boer's early tenure is ominously reminiscent of the poor start that saw him sacked by Inter in November a year ago.

"We have to look in the mirror and be responsible that you have to take the chances, and you get punished when you don't". I am convinced they understand what they have to do.

There are many questions that we are left with after today's game.

"But if you look all over at how we showed spirit, I think we were quite dynamic".

“Thats what any footballer dreams about, its the biggest league in the world, ” he said.

"There was a very positive vibe in the team, so I am very positive for the future".
