Nick Pope in action for Burnley

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

They are sorely missing Wilfried Zaha, but the winger might not return for this game.

"As we've been successful I've been able to play my part in helping the team and the club grow. Everybody was pleased about the performance - we could have drawn".

Frank de Boer is convinced he can bring success to Crystal Palace and that sacking him now would be nonsensical. It will be good to have that support behind us and hopefully behind me, so we can kick on and do really well. "Against Swansea, especially in the first half, we didn't create anything for ourselves". Burnley lost their first home game of the season against West Brom, and could have dropped points once more, especially if Scott Dann took his glorious chance in the 90th minute. "I'm convinced we are going to achieve it". However, the transition from the direct style of former manager Sam Allardyce has not been a smooth one for the Palace players.

He began the season with a 5-2-3 formation. "It's so fickle and so demanding, if you leave yourself open a little bit, people get to you, they worm in and it's very cold, very harsh". The pre-season programme was already scheduled so it was very hard for me to change it.

There are many questions that we are left with after today's game.

"It will be a lot different this time around".

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.

De Boer's side dominated in terms of possession and shots, but failed to make their dominance count, and the manager wants to ensure the impressive performance is not forgotten simply because Palace failed to win again.

"We discussed it and everybody agreed", he says.

"But we have to look in the mirror and be responsible that you have to take the chances, and you get punished when you don't".

'I can not believe we lost, there is still frustration about the result but not about our performance, ' he said after watching Scott Dann miss a golden chance to equalise in the 88th minute.

At this stage of his career, Chris Wood appears to have landed at the best possible destination in the English Premier League. He was previously at Ajax, where he won the Eredivisie four straight years. It's a CV, he feels, which stands him in good stead to handle the level of scrutiny he's now under.

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