De Boer believes Palace deserved the three points

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

Nick Pope in action for Burnley

Few mid ranking Premier League clubs weren't linked with the New Zealander during the summer but it was Burnley who matched Leeds' asking price for the jewel in their crown.

Aside from being a record signing for the Lancashire club, it's also the most money anybody has paid for the services of a New Zealand sportsman. "Football is about making goals and we have to do that much better".

They pushed and pushed for an equaliser, and Pope made a fine save from Benteke after he had broken into the penalty area for what was Palace's best chance of the match. The old days of saying "he is carrying a price tag", they are irrelevant now and I certainly don't look at that. "Some players have more difficulties than other but that is the normal process". "But you have to enjoy the challenge and embrace it".

“Its great to still be in the Premier League, ” he said in a deadline-day interview with Sky Sports. Could this squad have beaten Huddersfield, Swansea and Burnley?

Dyche has been superb since being appointed Burnley boss in 2012. He now possesses experience of the top flight, seems a fairly shrewd mover in the transfer market and has proven he is capable of leading a team to safety.

It was the worst possible start for the visitors given their early season struggles but they responded well.

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. I always stick with what I believe and won't think about the consequences can be.

Wood has represented Birmingham, Millwall, Bristol City, West Brom and most recently Leicester against the Eagles, but with no such luck.

"This game never ceases to amaze me with the managerial outlook".

But she did not begrudge her friend the win and gave her a lengthy embrace at the net following her defeat. Meanwhile, Keys rebounded from two wrist surgeries to win Stanford, her first hard court title.

"That gives me a lot of hope for the future".

"You've got to play that role". "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". Sam Vokes can get you 21/10 odds while Ashley Barnes is priced at 5/2 odds.

It has been reported that former England manager Roy Hodgson, who grew up in Croydon, could be under consideration to take over from De Boer should results not improve this weekend.

It's no mean feat. But while Palace are clearly still adapting, the home side looked utterly comfortable with their manager's instructions, and for all the defending they had to do in an occasionally torrid first period, it would just about pay off.

During his tenure, Dyche has stood out for his pragmatic approach. "Don't try it without them. I don't feel sorry for anyone in the position - we all know the pitfalls".

"The only thing is - are we patient enough?" But at this stage, it is just about letting him settle.

"The shape was more familiar", Dyche said. "I like the ones that are playing well and the ones that are scoring goals".

"Everybody who was in the stadium or sitting behind the television, I think there was only one team deserving to win and that was us", he told Sky Sports. Four league games into a three-year contract, he may face a decision if the Dutchman has become a millstone. But for most players, it doesn't work like that.

With a World Cup on the horizon, the dream of starting England's first group game in Russian Federation next June will surely be a thought within Heaton's mind each time he takes to the pitch this season. "I am disappointed about the result but I am not disappointed about how we played".
