De Boer on the brink as Palace suffer worst start in Premier League history

Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at Burnley ensured Crystal Palace have made the worst start to a season in Premier League history, piling the pressure on Eagles manager Frank de Boer.

Chris Wood’s early goal at Turf Moor, gifted by a dire Lee Chung-yong backpass, made it four league defeats out of four for Palace without scoring a goal.

Huddersfield Town, Liverpool, Swansea City and now the Clarets have all beaten Palace without conceding as De Boer – appointed as a replacement for Sam Allardyce in June – struggles badly with his attempted implementation of a Total Football approach at Selhurst Park.

De Boer, sacked after 85 days at Inter last season, now faces a fight to hold on to his job, with no top-flight team having made such a poor start to a campaign since Preston North End 93 years ago.
