Sept 10 (Reuters) - Burnley’s Chris Wood scored on his home debut as Crystal Palace suffered a fourth straight loss with a 1-0 defeat at Turf Moor on Sunday which will increase the pressure on their Dutch manager Frank De Boer.

An awful back pass from South Korean midfielder Lee Chung-yong gifted the third-minute opener to Wood, as Burnley’s recent club-record signing from Leeds United confidently fired past Wayne Hennessey.

Burnley’s England international goalkeeper Tom Heaton had to be substituted in the 36th minute after suffering a shoulder injury, handing reserve keeper Nick Pope a Premier League debut.

Palace dominated the second half but Pope produced a superb save with his feet to foil Christian Benteke in the 80th minute and in the final stages Scott Dann missed a golden chance, heading wide from three metres. (Reporting by Simon Evans; Editing by Toby Davis)
