Scott Dann: An incredible miss at the end of the game

Crystal Palace make it four losses in a row in the Premier League as they lose 1-0 to Burnley at Turf Moor.

Frank de Boer made a change to his team's shape this afternoon opting for a 4-3-3 formation with Lee Chung-yong partnering Christian Benteke and Andros Townsend in attack.

Jeffrey Schlupp came in at left back, and Yohan Cabaye made his first start this season.

The Eagles had a shocking start to the game, when on three minutes Lee made a terrible back pass which was lapped up by Burnley striker Chris Wood, and his shot from distance was easily slotted past Wayne Hennessey.

After the goal, Palace played well, and could have been level a few minutes after when Scott Dann brought the ball down from a corner and his shot was cleared off the line.

Palace continued to press in the second half and Benteke had an excellent opportunity to break Palace's barren spell when he found himself through on goal but substitute keeper Nick Pope made an excellent save with his foot.

There was a Palace debut for young Levi Lumeka who came on for Lee, and he almost got on the score sheet when he nipped into the box and almost got on the end of a Townsend cross.

Dann had a fantastic chance at the end of the game, but his header from a Cabaye cross went wide, and Palace ended the game pointless.

Palace: Hennessey, Dann, Fosu-Mensah, Schlupp, Ward, McArthur (Riedewald, 81), Cabaye, Puncheon, Townsend, Benteke, Lee (Lumeka, 65)
