De Boer under more pressure as Palace loses 1-0 at Burnley

Frank de Boer's position as Crystal Palace manager looked in more jeopardy on Sunday after his team lost 1-0 at Burnley for a fourth straight defeat to open the Premier League season.

The goal that could hasten the departure of De Boer was shambolic from Palace's point of view, with Lee Chung-yong's back-pass from the halfway line pounced on by Chris Wood in the third minute.

The New Zealand striker shot first-time from 35 meters past Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, who was stranded outside his area, for his second goal in as many games since joining from second-tier Leeds.

The team still hasn't scored a goal this season as it struggles to adapt to a new and more expansive style of play under De Boer, the former Netherlands defender who took charge in the offseason following the departure of Sam Allardyce.

Burnley played for nearly an hour with substitute goalkeeper Nick Pope after Tom Heaton was helped off with a left shoulder injury.
