Crystal Palace manger Frank De Boer is the first casualty of the new football season as he has been relieved of his duties.

In a short meeting on Monday morning, Palace chairman Steve Parish decided to pull the trigger, after Dutchman De Boer lost all of his Premier League games.

The final nail in the coffin came with a 1-0 defeat at Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

Former England manager Roy Hodgson is the odds-on favourite to take over at Selhurst Park - some reports claim the 70-year-old has already signed a two-year deal with the club.

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish had appeared to back De Boer last night after urging supporters to "stick together" in a Twitter spat with furious Eagles fans.

De Boer admitted he was not sure if he would still be in charge by the end of today after the Burnley defeat.

Replying to them, he tweeted: "We're four games in, it's a terrible start but we have to stick together. People are frustrated, I'm frustrated so are the management and players.

"We know we're better than this. I'm happy for people to vent at me, buck stops with me and I've never run away from that.
