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

Frank de Boer might have to abandon his principles at least for now to get some solidity and shape

This betting tip can get you the best odds of 29/20 at Betfair.

Served up with the simplest of chances, the New Zealander reacted clinically by firing past Hennessey first time from the edge of the box, giving his side a dream start.

Then, in the 89th minute, Palace defender Scott Dann was presented with a virtual open goal but he headed wide.

Last season, it was Burnley's home form that kept them in the Premier League. "They have to recognise "OK, now we have to do this, now we have to do that". Christian Benteke was also denied by replacement goalkeeper Nick Pope after Tom Heaton was forced off with an injury.

Crystal Palace travel to Burnley on Sunday with Frank de Boer keen to pick up his first points since taking over at Selhurst Park, however he will have to do it without Connor Wickham, Wilfried Zaha and Mamadou Sakho, according to the club's official website. Sam Vokes can get you 21/10 odds while Ashley Barnes is priced at 5/2 odds. We gave a goal away.

De Boer could be sacked if Palace fail to beat Burnley on Sunday.

"I remember for example Louis van Gaal when he started at Bayern Munich". We know this is not a one-day project, it's long term. "I will sign for this every game if we create that amount of chances". They can not take this match lightly simply because Palace are yet to score their first goal.

"What I want to see more of is that we take more initiative when we have the ball", he says. That said, Gareth Southgate's persistence in selecting Joe Hart for the two recent qualifiers, despite his indifferent form of the last two years, is likely to have deterred some of the excitement. But we have to reward ourselves and we didn't today. "The amount of effort he had made to look at the club, look at the staff, how we play - all of those things were unbelievably impressive when I sat down with him", he said.

"Let me ask you a question, who has the better squad us or Burnley? I'm convinced we are going to achieve it". "That gives me a lot of hope for the future".

"The puzzle fell together and they got good results. I told him so (but) I don't feel sorry for anyone in the position - we all know the pitfalls". That takes time. Automatically, so I don't have to shout from the bench.

The Dutchman is under huge pressure after a losing start to the Premier League campaign which has seen the Eagles fail to score or collect a point.
