Confirmed: First 2017/18 EPL Manager Sacked

Frank de Boer is first coach to get sacked in new EPL season

However, former Liverpool defender Carragher couldn't resist the opportunity to poke fun at ex-Manchester United star Neville.

Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Burnley at Turf Moor meant Palace have lost all of their opening four games of the new Premier League season - failing to score a single goal.

"(The future) is for other people to decide but while I'm the manager of Crystal Palace I will give 100 percent".

British media have reported that Hodgson is in talks to accept his first job in management since resigning from the England post after Euro 2016.

Frank de Boer has been sacked as Crystal Palace manager 10 weeks after the Dutchman was appointed to replace Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park.

Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan thinks Frank de Boer should have been given more time.

His only win as Palace manager came in the EFL Cup against Ipswich Town.

With a hard run of Premier League games coming the stars are aligning in entirely the wrong way for De Boer, even after a better performance against Burnley.

The board, however, took the decision to sack the manager after just four league games in charge.

An terrible early blunder from Lee Chung-yong gifted the home side a third-minute lead they never relinquished despite a much-improved performance by a Palace side without a league goal this season. The 47-year-old lasted just 85 days at Inter Milan after a similar start but has lasted an even shorter time in charge of the London club.

The last English top-flight club to lose their first four games without finding the net was Preston North End in 1924. We know we are better than this.
