Garth Crooks gives his verdict on Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer

Frank de Boer's revolution at Crystal Palace continues to stall after Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew deservedly got Swansea's season off and running.

Frank de Boer, the Crystal Palace manager, said on the eve of this match that he was not anxious about his job, but on yesterday's evidence, he ought to be. It wasn't just the result and the three goals conceded, but also the fact that they registered fewer shots on target than their opponents and just didn't look up to the task.

"I understand the fans are frustrated because they want to see points and goals and they are not spoiled right now", De Boer said. "And we are going to be working hard with the players that remain with us, over the global break".

Ismail Kawoosi, spokesman for Ministry of Public Health, said the number of casualties from the attack may increase. A mother arrived at the security cordon, wailing and begging the police to let her proceed toward the mosque .

Palace upped the intensity levels but were toothless in front of goal and Paul Clement celebrated another victory at Selhurst Park, just like he had done in his first game as Swansea boss in January.

Clement's side had fought out a goalless draw at Southampton before losing 4-0 at home to Manchester United last weekend. So I have to back the Seagulls to suffer another away defeat, yet we're getting an even juicier price about the home side this time around.

The first chance of the game fell to Ayew, latching onto the end of Abraham's cross but his header flew just wide of the goal. We made two mistakes, they had two half-chances and scored both times. In the first-half we were better, but in the second-half we had to defend too much. We can now say we have had a decent start to the season.

"Four points from the first three games and going through the EFL Cup is a reasonable start". It wasn't until after we were two nil down that we showed we really can play, ' De Boer said.

Nothing that happened here would have persuaded the bookmakers that they were wrong to make the Dutchman favourite to be the first Premier League manager sacked this season.

However, Swansea stuck again through Ayew after Kyle Naughton intercepted possession and set the striker through on goal for him to beat Hennessey.
