Pressure is off for Wood

Burnley FC news Nick Pope eager for more action after impressive Premier League debut Nick Pope in action for Burnley

I know that Joel Ward is not an ideal wing-back but the board and all the other people at Crystal Palace knew. I think we have a good relationship. Just by looking at the managers that Palace have recently hired over the last couple of years - Tony Pulis, Alan Pardew, Sam Allardyce- managers who are not known for wanting their players to be able to keep the ball, to pass the ball around and hold onto possession like De Boer wants.

After scoring a last minute penalty against Tottenham Hotspur in his first appearance for the club before the global break, Wood capitalised on a awful back-pass from Lee Chung-yong to give the Clarets the lead after just three minutes at Turf Moor.

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.

It may not have been the result Frank de Boer wanted as his future as Crystal Palace manager rests on the edge of a knife, but this was not the calamity-ridden football seen in the opening weeks of the season, but rather an assured team performance unfortunately hit by some seriously bad individual errors.

Steve Parish has responded to fans who have shared both positive and negative thoughts on the club's current position, but was flabbergasted when one user called him an "ignorant tosser" before they removed their tweet.

For this game at Turf Moor, he changed formations - ditching the three-man defence he favoured in losses to Huddersfield, Liverpool and Swansea - and Palace dominated large parts of the game. Van Gaal offered his protégé tips for succeeding in England based on his two years at Manchester United, from which he apparently carries a curious disappointment that De Boer is determined to avoid.

"I've been really impressed, even though it's early days, but I can guarantee we won't be taking Palace lightly", confirmed Dyche. Normally we are scheduled for one day a week to come together and see what is happening at the club - what is going on and how we can improve. "Much more I can not ask from our players... only that they have to score goals".

"I think we just look at them [Crystal Palace] as the next team", says Dyche.

A full debut for the former Leeds United striker represented the only change to the Clarets' starting line-up following their draw at Tottenham before the global break.

According to The Telegraph, Crystal Palace have given Frank de Boer one more game to save his job. "Technically, a fantastic save", said Dyche, delighted with the Premier League debutant.

"We showed spirit", De Boer said.

“It might come a bit too soon, but you never know, ” he said.
