Crystal Palace boss takes hope for the future from performance against Burnley

Joint 15. Howard Wilkinson lasted 151 days in charge

"But that's football and sometimes you don't get what you deserve".

"What other people think, they have to decide but when I'm still the manager of Palace, I will give 100 percent". "There is a long way to go in the season and a long way to go in my Burnley career so I am looking forward to it".

Palace fell behind in the third minute when Chris Wood seized upon a poor attempt at a back-pass from Lee Chung-yong, sending a fine strike past Wayne Hennessey.

Frank de Boer is nearing his end.

The first managerial sacking of the Premier League season appears to be only days away.

If both the goal and the manner of it suggested De Boer's players were eager to hasten his exit, they responded. It is going to come down to my performances during the season whether I stay in the team or fight to get into them.

During the global break, chairman Steve Parish admitted the start to the new campaign had "not been great", adding "i t's a results-based business, so if you don't get wins". Normally we are scheduled for one day a week to come together and see what is happening at the club - what is going on and how we can improve.

A full debut for the former Leeds United striker represented the only change to the Clarets' starting line-up following their draw at Tottenham before the global break.

Burnley spent most of the second-half on the back foot as Palace searched for an equaliser but the south east London side missed a litany of chances to haul themselves back into the game. "Much more I can not ask from our players... only that they have to score goals".

They had more touches in the box, more shots and created twice as many clear-cut openings as they had in any fixture this season.

De Boer can expect a call from Palace chairman Steve Parish - with the smart money on defeat to Burnley being the last straw.

De Boer said he took heart from his side's performance at Turf Moor, which saw them have 65% of possession and produce 23 efforts at goal to their opponents' four.

"I think there was only one team that deserved to win today and that was us". "I told (De Boer) so". Ajax have always played the kind of football that De Boer likes to play, they have the players that are capable of playing that kind of football and are comfortable with the ball at their feet - this is the exact opposite of Crystal Palace.

A win for Sean Dyche's side lifts them up to seventh in the table.

"I think this is a good starting point and this is what I want to see from any team that I manage".
