Frank de Boer to be sacked if Crystal Palace lose to Burnley

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

The Eagles' new manager, Frank de Boer, is in danger of becoming the first Premier League manager to lose his job this season.

No English top-flight club has lost their first four matches without scoring since Preston North End in 1924, but De Boer remains hopeful of turning Palace's fortunes around.

"I am just focusing on what I can control and so are my staff and my players". "When I'm still the manager of Palace I will give 100 per cent", he said.

The result sends the Clarets up to 7th in the Premier League table, and keeps Palace in the bottom three, without a win - or even a goal scored - to their name this season.

After scoring a last minute penalty against Tottenham Hotspur in his first appearance for the club before the worldwide break, Wood capitalised on a awful back-pass from Lee Chung-yong to give the Clarets the lead after just three minutes at Turf Moor. "What we showed today gives us a lot of hope for the future".

Nevertheless, Palace, while showing they are adept at shooting themselves in the foot, remain the only team in England without a league goal.

Trump has made tax reform his focus over the past week, calling on Congress to pass legislation reforming the tax code. Trump remarked that Reagan's tax cuts were passed with the help of Democrats, which helped boost the economy.

Palace's last two visits to Turf Moor have ended in 3-2 results - one in Palace's favour and the most recent a defeat.

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

"I thought they were the better side", Burnley manager Sean Dyche said of Palace. "The ups and downs of any side don't guarantee you anything in the Premier League and I think every team in the Premier League is a good side".

Parish, who led a consortium that purchased the club in 2010, told fans: "We are four games in, it's a bad start but we have to stick together". Considering the awful start Palace have had, the Clarets will feel confident of winning this match. "I don't do favourites, I don't do price tags or things like that, I [pick] the ones that will fit the team and be effective on any given day".

However, it seems like Crystal Palace are about to sack Frank de Boer. I am convinced they understand what they have to do. Overseeing three defeats from three games, De Boer's possession based philosophy has come under fire from critics and fans alike.

During the worldwide break, chairman Steve Parish admitted the start to the new campaign had "not been great", adding "it's a results-based business, so if you don't get wins".
