Pressure mounts on Frank De Boer as Crystal Palace lose to Burnley

Pressure mounts on Frank De Boer as Crystal Palace lose to Burnley

De Boer's side have not scored or won in the Premier League since he took charge and he could lose his job if they lose at Burnley tomorrow, though the manager said it is too soon to judge him.

The Eagles made it four straight defeats to start the Premier League season after a 1-0 reverse away at Burnley this afternoon.

The Premier League side have reportedly thought long and hard about sacking the Dutchman during the worldwide break, despite De Boer only taking charge this summer. The most important thing, I always think, is if you are going to play like this every week, you get what you deserve. "When I'm still the manager of Palace I will give 100 per cent", he said.

Palace's next opportunity to pick up their first win of the season comes at home to Southampton next Saturday.

Inside three minutes, Lee Chung-yong's back-pass from the halfway line was pounced on by Chris Wood, who curled in a first-time shot from 35 metres past stranded goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

De Boer's afternoon at Turf Moor was bookended by displays of schadenfreude, taunts that he would be "sacked in the morning" following both Burnley's third-minute victor and the final whistle.

A manager on the brink rarely speaks optimistically of the future but Crystal Palace hired Frank de Boer to be different.

Clemson vs. Auburn not expected to be altered due to Hurricane Irma
Auburn allowed 19 sacks total in 2016, but the 2017 campaign sees the Tigers sitting at a tally of 14 sacks allowed already. Auburn PK Daniel Carlson is the school's all-time scoring leader with 371 points and holds 12 Auburn kicking records.

They remain without a league goal or point this season under Dutchman De Boer, chronically short of confidence and second bottom of the division.

Only some poor finishing - notably from striker Christian Benteke and defender Scott Dann, who headed wide from point-blank range in the final minute - prevented them taking at least a point from the game.

In the two home losses, Palace's players have looked uncomfortable adapting to De Boer's possession-based approach, which is a giant leap from the pragmatism, directness and counter-attacking favoured by previous manager Sam Allardyce.

'I can not believe we lost, there is still frustration about the result but not about our performance, ' he said after watching Scott Dann miss a golden chance to equalise in the 88th minute.

"But if you look all over at how we showed spirit, I think we were quite dynamic".

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

"Sometimes, though, as a manager you need to have time as well to build something, to create a certain atmosphere within the group and a certain belief to do well and get results".
