EPL Table: 2017 Week 4 Standings After Sunday's Premier League Scores

Burnley players celebrate after the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley at Wembley Stadium on August 27, 2017 in London, England. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

He already was the bookmakers' favourite to be the first Premier League manager to lose his job, with Palace struggling to adapt to a more expansive style of play demanded by De Boer after he came in as a replacement for the more pragmatic Sam Allardyce. Find out by following our live matchcast.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche reveals that Tom Heaton is likely to be sidelined for months after suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder during the win over Crystal Palace.

Christian Benteke then headed just wide from a cross from the unsafe Andros Townsend before James McArthur nodded another effort past a post from a sixth corner inside the opening 23 minutes.

Schlupp expertly created space for himself in the area but failed with his shot, McArthur went close with a header, and Heaton had to claim a cross from Lee - hurting himself in the process and leaving the field to be replaced by Nick Pope.

Wood faces stiff competition at Burnley, with other top strikers in the squad, but Dyche's selection criterion is simple.

Wood, who could make his Premier League home debut for Burnley tomorrow morning (NZT) against Huddersfield, appears ready for the top flight, after a brief taste with West Bromwich and Leicester.

De Boer's appointment was described as "an wonderful milestone" by the chairman, Steve Parish. The likes of Andros Townsend, Christian Benteke and Jason Schlupp have fantastic physical profiles, however, certainly lack the technique and composure to play under De Boer's system. The result - their fourth straight loss this season - has replicated their worst start to a season in 92 years after they went down 1-0 at Burnley.

3' GOAL! Burnley 1-0 Palace.

The South Korean global was making his 100th Premier League appearance but, looking to find a team-mate, the 29-year-old placed the ball on a plate for the forward - Wood only needing one touch before the ball was in the pack of the Palace net. "They had two fantastic chances, particularly Dann's".

But Parish has reiterated on social media that fans, players and staff must stick together; these sentiments were shared by injured Wilfried Zaha.

It's hard to see de Boer abandoning his formation of three at the back. 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.
