Palace will get what we deserve, De Boer claims

He is maturing as a player and we've got him at that nice time where although he's a more rounded player now, there is still more to come from him, we believe.

"I can play that no problem but I think I have more to my game definitely".

De Boer distinguishes between what he describes as the 3-5-2 system and also 5-3-2 but there was not much mention of reverting to the four-man defence that Palace played in their survival under Sam Allardyce.

Wood had followed up his equaliser against Tottenham with a stylish hat-trick for New Zealand and he looked a striker full of confidence when he latched on to Lee Chung-Yong's bad backpass from the halfway line, saw the advancing Wayne Hennessey and clipped a first-time finish past him from 25 yards.

"The message is just to try to do your best", De Boer says.

So Crystal Palace are ready to sack Frank De Boer, if they get beat at Burnley this weekend.

Asked whether the battling display, which should have earned the London club at least a point, had bought him some time, De Boer said: "I don't know, they have to decide".

"But if you look all over at how we showed spirit, I think we were quite dynamic". Yohan Cabaye, Lee Chung-yong and Jeffrey Schlupp were handed starts, while Luka Milivojevic, James Tomkins and Patrick van Aanholt dropped out.

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 worldwide break. They have picked up four points away from home already.

"I took a step back to the Championship, a league I know very well, and I knew one day I would be back here (in the Premier League)".

The Dutchman's future has been questioned by some fans and media after just three games of the season with Palace yet to pick up a point.

Nevertheless, Palace, while showing they are adept at shooting themselves in the foot, remain the only team in England without a league goal.

Frank de Boer has admitted his Crystal Palace players are doing nearly everything right... except putting the ball in the back of the net. "Technically, a fantastic save", said Dyche, delighted with the Premier League debutant. Because time is clearly what De Boer needs.

A win for Sean Dyche's side lifts them up to seventh in the table. "The ups and downs of any side don't guarantee you anything in the Premier League and I think every team in the Premier League is a good side".

"These are the games you have to win", Ritchie said.
