Will Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer survive the weekend?

Will Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer survive the weekend?”

Frank de Boer vowed to fight for his future after a 1-0 defeat at Burnley piled pressure on the Crystal Palace manager, while Newcastle gave ailing boss Rafael Benitez a boost with their 1-0 win at Swansea.

Burnley welcome Crystal Palace to Turf Moor in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and are favourites to pick up all three points given the contrasting form of the two sides this season.

His side drop to second from bottom with four defeats in as many games - Palace still yet to score a single goal this season in the Premier League.

The good news for De Boer is that he's lasted longer at Palace than he did at the Italian club. Fans are still split over whether or not De Boer should go, but after there was no success again, even after changing the system, maybe it is time to say that the experiment did not work. I know that Joel Ward is not an ideal wing-back but the board and all the other people at Crystal Palace knew.

Disney is about to make a massive move into the direct-to-consumer avenue, and they're bringing all their best toys with them. This is includes Daredevil , Jessica Jones , Luke Cage , Iron Fist , The Defenders and future Marvel-Netflix properties.

Palace have made a stuttering start to the season and are still searching for their first goal of the new Premier League season under their new manager.

'I saw the team fighting for each other and playing with more confidence and that is what I want.

A manager on the brink rarely speaks optimistically of the future but Crystal Palace hired Frank de Boer to be different.

Media reports have suggested that former Ajax and Inter Milan coach De Boer, in his first season at the club, could find himself sacked soon but he denied he had received any kind of ultimatum from Palace.

Kylian Mbappe has confirmed reports of a summer meeting with Arsene Wenger and says joining Arsenal was "a real option" before he chose Paris Saint-Germain.

De Boer will be encouraged by the effort and commitment of his team, who will leave Lancashire feeling they deserved at least a draw, but ruing their failure to convert their overwhelming possession after the break into a goal.

Palace could have pulled level nearly instantly, but Dann's excellent volley on the turn was cleared off the line by Lowton, with Benteke later sending a header toward goal that left Heaton scrambling - but the ball dropped just wide of the post.

"But if you look all over at how we showed spirit, I think we were quite dynamic". It is football, and sometimes you don't get what you deserve. We looked very carefully at our squad and we thought that was the best for the team. The likes of Andros Townsend, Christian Benteke and Jason Schlupp have fantastic physical profiles, however, certainly lack the technique and composure to play under De Boer's system.
