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

Crystal Palace coach Frank De Boer insists he is not bothered with the rumours linking him with an exit after just three games in charge.

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.

The Premier League side have reportedly thought long and hard about sacking the Dutchman during the global break, despite De Boer only taking charge this summer.

"[The future] is for other people to decide but while I'm the manager of Crystal Palace I will give 100%".

Another Palace loss on Saturday, at a Burnley side with a strong home record since returning to the Premier League for the 2015-16 season, would leave the club's American owners David Blitzer and Josh Harris with a big decision to make.

The 25-year-old took advantage of a nightmare start by Palace when Lee Chung-Yong misplaced a horror back-pass which fell right into the striker's path. "I knew a player there, Steven Reid, who was a personal friend of mine and who always spoke very highly of [Chris], even as a young player. They were out of work within three, six, nine months".

De Boer's afternoon at Turf Moor was bookended by displays of schadenfreude, taunts that he would be "sacked in the morning" following both Burnley's third-minute victor and the final whistle.

De Boer said he took heart from his side's performance at Turf Moor, which saw them have 65% of possession and produce 23 efforts at goal to their opponents' four.

Dann headed wide, though, and he had been denied by twin goal-line clearances from Matthew Lowton and the excellent James Tarkowski.

"That gives me a lot of hope for the future".

"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".

"If you want to play Barcelona football, get Barcelona players", he said past year, after criticism of his team's style. "We are four games in, it's a bad start but we have to stick together".

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

"I think there was only one team deserving to win, which was us". The likes of Andros Townsend, Christian Benteke and Jason Schlupp have fantastic physical profiles, however, certainly lack the technique and composure to play under De Boer's system.
