De Boer unconcerned by mounting Palace pressure

According to the Telegraph, Palace chairman Steve Parish has held talks with De Boer over his position.

They have been architects of their own downfall, their problems caused in part by misguided attempts to pass the ball. Football teams lose games. On each occasion, Palace have had vast amounts of possession and done little constructive with it.

3' GOAL! Burnley 1-0 Palace.

It would be extremely harsh for Palace to sack De Boer after this performance, particularly as numerous club's issues - including the squad management mentioned above - are not his fault.

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. Burnley's record signing provided an assured finish to vindicate Dyche, who promoted the £15m forward, the scorer of a late leveller against Tottenham last time out, to the starting 11. His first start brought an early decider. But instead the highly-decorated former defender has clung on for the trip to Turf Moor. It may prove an accurate prediction, though the manager sounded unworried. I just focus on what I can do.

"The future is for other people to decide but while I'm the manager of Crystal Palace I will give 100 per cent". "Of course he wants to get points but I - and my players - always go into a game to get the best result against any team. I'm convinced that we can achieve it".

The club are reportedly interested in trying to coax Allardyce out of retirement, while Roy Hodgson has also been mentioned as a potential replacement for De Boer. "I told him so". Just a few weeks ago he was the right man and you have to stick with him, show him he believes in him - he has not had any sort of chance, I just don't want chance he had. We created our chances and didn't give anything away.

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

"The most important thing I think is if you play every week like this, you will get what you deserve, and that is going to be points".

That's the conclusion drawn after talking with Burnley manager Sean Dyche, who has put his faith - and a huge transfer fee of 15 million ($26 million) - in the 25-year-old Kiwi. For Palace, Christian Benteke is available at 21/10 odds.

The Dutchman arrived in the Premier League with an excellent pedigree.

Four matches into the season, Palace have yet to win a point―and even worse, they've yet to find the back of the net.
