Premier League updates from Turf Moor

Premier League updates from Turf Moor”

The loss leaves Palace second from bottom with zero points from a possible 12 at the start of the new Premier League season, as pressure continues to mount on the under-fire boss who took charge at Selhurst Park less than three months ago.

Palace visit Burnley on Sunday looking for their first point of the Premier League campaign, and De Boer hopes a result at Turf Moor will be the catalyst for an improved run of form.

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

Dyche is one of only seven British managers in the Premier League but he has already made his mark, guiding Burnley to successive seasons in the Premier League for the first time in their history.

His side were stricken by misfortune today, with Chung Yong Lee's misweighted backpass allowing Chris Wood to nip in and slide the ball past Wayne Hennessey in the third minute. "I don't feel sorry for anyone in the position - we all know the pitfalls".

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

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

Pope had relatively little to do until he was forced into making a brilliant save from Christian Benteke in the 79th minute.

De Boer's future has been the subject of debate throughout the global break, and there were even reports that he could lose his job before Sunday's clash at Burnley after Palace themselves added fuel to the fire after they rescheduled the Dutchman's press conference from Thursday to Friday.

"We don't have any points, which is unbelievable when you see this game".

De Boer's side dominated in terms of possession and shots, but failed to make their dominance count, and the manager wants to ensure the impressive performance is not forgotten simply because Palace failed to win again. We controlled the game.

"As we've been successful I've been able to play my part in helping the team and the club grow". I want them to play with courage and maybe we didn't start with it but after the goal we showed what we can do. We looked very carefully at our squad and we thought that was the best for the team.

At the time of his appointment, it seemed unusual that Crystal Palace would go for somebody like De Boer.
