Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer will be sacked if he fails to win at Burnley this weekend, according to reports.

The Eagles have had a horrendous start to the new season under De Boer, losing all three of their opening league games to Huddersfield, Liverpool and Swansea.

In those defeats, the Eagles have failed to score and conceded six goals.

And the Daily Mirror says Palace chiefs will pull the plug on De Boer’s reign if they draw or lose to in-form Burnley.

The Clarets have beaten Premier League champions Chelsea, while earning a credible point against Tottenham.

De Boer, who succeeded Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park in the summer, has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League.

And Sunday’s trip to Turf Moor will be one of the biggest games of his managerial career.

Palace will be hoping for better luck against Burnley, who they lost to home and away last season.
