Palace confirm two attackers unavailable vs Burnley, decision made on Sakho

Palace confirm two attackers unavailable vs Burnley, decision made on Sakho

Considering the bad start Palace have had, the Clarets will feel confident of winning this match. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

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.

We think that Palace will score the first goal of their season on Sunday, but they would end up losing the game 2-1.

Lee Chung-yong's blunder today allowed Burnley to take advantage of the chance that was presented to them and put Crystal Palace firmly in the history books.

Defeat at Turf Moor for Crystal Palace cost the Eagles more than just points.

Christian Benteke then headed just wide from a cross from the risky Andros Townsend before James McArthur nodded another effort past a post from a sixth corner inside the opening 23 minutes.

"It's simpler to get them going and build their own confidence within the group". Their methodology - set-pieces and an aerial attack - may have owed more to Sam Allardyce than his successor, but it nearly succeeded.

The goal was the prelude to a gripping first half, in which Palace more than played their part.

He'll hope to make his home debut on Sunday.

De Boer's men kept the Clarets pinned back but couldn't find a way through to seriously test Pope as his team-mates defended with great discipline to protect their lead. Still, time is a luxury few bosses have - and judging from the look on chairman Steve Parish's face in the stands, the powers-that-be are not happy with what's happening on the pitch.

Barnes had been a catalyst for improvement from Burnley and he tested Hennessey shortly after, cutting inside and seeing a left-footed curler from the edge of the area pushed away by the Palace 'keeper.

Last season, it was Burnley's home form that kept them in the Premier League. "They had two fantastic chances, particularly Dann's". De Boer, another Dutchman accused of dogmatism, had jettisoned his favoured 3-4-3 formation, but introducing the defender Jairo Riedewald when a goal was required seemed the sort of move his mentor might have made. Still without the creative Wilfried Zaha, Palace are depending on others to step up. De Boer knows his position could be on the line.

"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".
