Burnley boss full of praise for ‘strong and effective’ Crystal Palace side

“We think we are doing it the right way, Steve knows that, the board knows that”.

‘We are four games in, ‘ Parish tweeted.

But De Boer pointed out yesterday that even the best in the business have needed patience before getting their reward.

The winger Chung-yong Lee was brought in to bolster Palace’s supply line.

Parish urged everyone at the club to “stick together” despite the team’s poor start to the Premier League season and increasing speculation about De Boer’s position.

“We knew it would be a tough game”.

Look, I’m not a romantic – I understand that football is a results-based industry, and that if you don’t get results, you’ve got to go. “I’m convinced we are going to achieve it”.

Dyche added that he felt Palace caused his side more problems by changing their style, adding that he would have preferred to have faced the Eagles playing a system with three at the back as they have been early on this season.

Burnley has started the season well, having previously picked up four points in away games against Chelsea and Tottenham.

“We showed spirit”, De Boer said.

The 47-year-old had been at Selhurst Park for only 77 days after succeeding Sam Allardyce, and while that remains longer than the shortest term for any Premier League manager – Les Reed’s 40 days at Charlton – he oversaw two fewer games.

“I talked to all the potential managers and said: we need an evolution over a period of time”, Parish said.

“Although the margin of the defeat is small, I’m really disappointed with our performance”, Swans manager Paul Clement said. “I think it was quite dynamic”. I’m thinking that I have influence in what I can do with the squad, what I can do on the training ground with all the people around and that’s where I put my energy.

If Frank de Boer was already on the brink, then where is he now?

The former Ajax and Inter Milan head coach was only appointed by the south London club during the summer but he is under intense scrutiny after three defeats from three matches.

They pushed and pushed for an equaliser, and Pope made a fine save from Benteke after he had broken into the penalty area for what was Palace’s best chance of the match.
