Burnley Continue Dream Start, Piling More Pressure on De Boer's Palace

Burnley Continue Dream Start, Piling More Pressure on De Boer's Palace”

Frank de Boer vowed to fight for his future after a 1-0 defeat at Burnley piled pressure on the Crystal Palace manager, while Newcastle gave ailing boss Rafael Benitez a boost with their 1-0 win at Swansea.

De Boer has endured a bad start to life at Crystal Palace following three consecutive losses, which has already led to speculation regarding his job security at the club.

His side drop to second from bottom with four defeats in as many games - Palace still yet to score a single goal this season in the Premier League.

De Boer had a two-hour conversation this week with the Palace chairman, Steve Parish, but the manager said that was standard procedure and everyone at the club was aware he is working to meet long-term goals.

'We showed what we really can do - and I already said I will sign directly for every game if we are going to create so many open chances against any team.

"What other people think, they have to decide but when I'm still the manager of Palace, I will give 100 percent".

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.

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.

When Sam Allardyce was around, they were getting pelters for the way they played, but at the end of the day some teams can only play a certain way and this squad clearly may not be able to and he may have to play a certain way.

According to Matt Lawton, writing in The Daily Mail, Palace will "almost certainly" sack the Dutch manager if the team lose to Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.

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

The sense is that Crystal Palace have not just lost matches under Frank de Boer; they have lost their way, and he may lose his job as a result.

"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".

"We still are at seven or eight games".

"I thought they were the better side", he said. De Boer himself shrugged off suggestions he had been given an ultimatum: win at Burnley or else.
