Frank De Boer needs more time at Crystal Palace

The Eagles are the first top-flight side in 93 years to lose their first four games without scoring a goal - and the bad stretch has left the Dutchman facing a crucial 48 hours as he fights to save his job.

De Boer remained confident on the backing from the boardroom, having been chosen as the man to take the Selhurst Park club forward following Sam Allardyce's unexpected departure at the end of last season.

Burnley's England global goalkeeper Tom Heaton had to be substituted in the 36th minute after suffering a shoulder injury, handing reserve keeper Nick Pope a Premier League debut.

"And I thought they were more effective than when I've seen them this season".

The result sends the Clarets up to 7th in the Premier League table, and keeps Palace in the bottom three, without a win - or even a goal scored - to their name this season.

When reviewing the match with Parish, the Dutchman may correctly claim that Palace were the better side, citing their dominance of possession and greater number of efforts on goal.

De Boer on his future: "I am just focusing on what I can control and so are my staff and my players. I think still we can improve a lot in how we want to play".

Palace had their chances, with Scott Dann missing the best opportunity in the closing stages as he headed wide from close range from Yohan Cabaye's cross, with Burnley holding on for the victory.

What you have had is teams spending money, buying big players and big names. "People might not talk about us but that suits us". The 24-year-old has now scored 101 goals in 169 games for the north London club, with 80 coming in 117 Premier League games.

Hodgson's last game in charge was England's shock defeat at Euro 2016 to Iceland, and his last job in club management was at West Bromwich Albion. We created our chances and didn't give anything away.

"We didn't score and don't have any points right now".

"When I saw their team I was anxious because I thought that's back to a familiar looking side", Dyche told talkSPORT.

On Crystal Palace's overall performance: "We have to reward ourselves and we didn't do that today".

Burnley managed just two shots on target during a dismal 90 minutes, with de Boer's Palace registering supreme with 23 shots throughout a game he will argue they more than deserved a point from.

Dyche on Chris Wood's victor: "He took it so early - I thought it was an excellent finish".

Palace have started the Premier League with three straight losses - at against Huddersfield and Swansea, and at Liverpool - and have yet to score a goal.
