The Farmer sees, despite the fourth defeat in a row, points of light in the Palace

Crystal Palace-coach Frank de Boer felt that his team Sunday in the victory against Burnley deserved. He is not concerned with a possible dismissal.

Palace suffered on Turm Moor, the fourth defeat in a row in the Premier League, making the position of The Farmer under pressure.

“But there was only one team that deserved to win and that was us. We can blame that the odds of there not went and that we’re still a goal to give away,” said The Farmer, after the end opposite to Sky Sports.

The Farmer had for the duel to have confidence in a good outcome, but after three minutes was his team behind by a faulty back-pass from attacker Lee Chung-Yong.

“That’s the plan, you, of course not. I had a good feeling and trust for the contest. The players started unfortunately not with confidence, so we gave a goal away. Then it went better, but we forgot to score.”

The 47-year-old coach was referring to the many opportunities that Palace, especially in the final stage of the duel was. Christian Benteke and Scott Dann failed in a promising position to score.

“We have played very well. I can’t do more than this. My players also not, they were the only to finish. If we continue to get, we will discover what we deserve.”

In English media over the past week written that The Farmer is discharged from a defeat against Burnley. “I focus now only on things I can control. I speak on Sunday night and later this week with chairman Steve Parish”, decided De Boer.

The next match of Crystal Palace is Saturday at 13.30 at home against Southampton.
