Win for Burnley against Crystal Palace

Burnley FC news Nick Pope eager for more action after impressive Premier League debut

Burnley FC news Nick Pope eager for more action after impressive Premier League debut

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

Following a splurge of bets on Rafa Benitez to be the first manager to go following the closure of the transfer window, de Boer has returned to the top of the charts when it comes to bets on the market with over 52% on the former Ajax boss to be the first to go.

Burnley lost Tom Heaton to a suspected dislocated shoulder in the first half, but Nick Pope made a crucial late save to deny Benteke and Dyche praised his second choice goalkeeper's performance.

"I think I'm honest, I attempt to be, and they were the better side, they deserved something from the game". The club are said to have contemplated sacking De Boer during the worldwide break, as the relationship between the manager and Palace chairman Steve Parish is reportedly "at breaking point". After 30 years in professional football I'm convinced [results will improve].

Irma has forced millions of residents to leave their homes in one of the largest emergency evacuations in American history. The White House released photos showing them being briefed on the track and potential impact of the hurricane.

However, while there's no doubt that on paper it looks like De Boer's troops have had a shocker, against Burnley they had 65% of possession and a staggering 23 shots to Burnley's four, while the goal they conceded was a shocking error. Not only the players, but the manager and the chairman were also visibly unhappy.

"I thought they were very good, they played with more freedom than in recent weeks, and maybe the goal strangely helped with that".

'I think this is the starting point because usually if you create that many chances you will get what you deserve'.

Palace perhaps deserved something from a hugely-improved performance - and nearly got it when Scott Dann somehow contrived to head wide from point-blank range in injury time - but it may not be enough to save the Dutchman his job.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said she wants the 15-member council to vote on the resolution on Monday. He and May agreed to continue work on "increasing diplomatic and economic pressure on North Korea".

A coaching change right now really may not help, but Frank de Boer will know the importance of getting a result in their next league fixture.

The substitution took much of the pace out the game, with Burnley taking control again and coming close through a fine Gudmunsson cross that Fosu-Mensah had to clear. "Today we haven't played as well and come away with a nice three points".

Crystal Palace may have been the better side, however they were on the wrong side of the result with a defeat to Burnley on Sunday - and one player has been singled out by the fans on social media.

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

Concern for Man City's Ederson after Mane challenge
He came back long flight, 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there, three weeks without training. We have matches next Wednesday, next Saturday, we play, play, play, play.

Chris Wood celebrates scoring the early goal for Burnley. And that proved enough to give his new side a second win of the campaign and lift them to seventh place in the Premier League.
