Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace

Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace

"There were like four or five 100 per cent chances".

"It is not going to be an easy road, I am not guaranteed anything and it is going to come down to hard work and making sure I play well".

Oddschecker spokesman George Elek: 'There is no denying that Frank de Boer has had a torrid start to his reign at Selhurst Park, and punters have seen enough to think his spell in London will be a short one.

De Boer continued to emphasise the importance of time, that if given it, the players will adjust well to his philosophy: "I want players that recognise what they have to do in certain situations".

De Boer was only appointed as Palace boss this summer, as successor to Sam Allardyce, who left the club after helping them escape relegation last season.

However, while there's no doubt that on paper it looks like De Boer's troops have had a shocker, against Burnley they had 65% of possession and a staggering 23 shots to Burnley's four, while the goal they conceded was a shocking error. I will show you a hundred horror stories of people that said they were going to play Barcelona football. "I am very disappointed about the result", he said.

Renato Sanches, whose loan arrival from Bayern Munich proved to be one of the most eye-catching deals of the final week of the transfer window, endured a disappointing debut and was replaced by Wilfried Bony after 69 minutes.

In an alternate reality, Palace now sit mid table on four points having won and drawn their two home games and lost at Liverpool. They simply can't afford to drop points for the second game in a row at home.

"I took a step back to the Championship, a league I know very well, and I knew one day I would be back here (in the Premier League)". The team have also given up six goals while scoring zero.

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish declared the club and their fans have to stick together after a 1-0 loss to Burnley saw them go down to their fourth straight defeat to begin the season - but also admitted he was bewildered by the poor start!

“Nahki is a player I have known for a while, ” Dyche told reporters yesterday. "I want players that recognise what they have to do in certain situations", he says.

"You can not expect to win every game, it's a work in progress still".

All of those responses might indicate de Boer's time with the club is nearing an end.

"But I always give myself pressure to do the best for the team and to get the best out of the team".

"I would like to think the manager is not judged on that performance, we were much improved", Puncheon said.
