Frank de Boer’s position as Crystal Palace manager hangs in the balance after his side suffered their fourth Premier League defeat on the bounce.

It was a vital game for De Boer who, having seen his side lose their opening three league matches.

But defeat to Burnley leaves the Eagles second from bottom, without a point, and without a Premier League goal this season.

Manchester United lost their 100 per cent record but returned to the top of the Premier League table with a 2-2 draw at Stoke City.

Stoke’s summer signing Maxim Choupo-Moting opened the scoring just before the interval, only for Marcus Rashford to level up for the visitors inside injury time in the first half.

Mourinho’s men looked comfortable in the second half when Romelu Lukaku managed to find the back of Jack Butland’s net to give them the lead for the first time, but Xherdan Shaqiri’s corner found Choupo-Moting at the far post who, having left Phil Jones in a heap on the floor, headed home to equalise for a point.

Rivals Man City had temporarily topped the table with a thumping 5-0 win over 10-man Liverpool in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.​

Sergio Aguero opened the scoring, slightly against the run of play, before Sadio Mane was shown a straight red card for a high foot which connected with Ederson’s face.

The contest was effectively over as Gabriel Jesus made it 2-0 soon after. The Brazilian added his second after the break before Leroy Sane added a double late one as City strolled back into first place.
