We were not courageous enough, admits Palace boss De Boer

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.

The patient build-up play and formation appears lost on his players. Both teams have yet to score a goal this season and have allowed four. "If some of our players get injured then it gets a little bit narrow", de Boer said. That appears unlikely but he will need to get it right after the global break or those calls will become even louder.

"It's always important to win and we know how important Saturday is".

Oil prices slide as confusion over Libyan production reigns

On-loan Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham broke the deadlock one minute before the interval, before Jordan Ayew scored the cushion goal three minutes into the second-half.

Sam Clucas could go straight into the Swansea side at Crystal Palace following his £15million move from Hull. That nearly contributed to their opener as the Belgian was involved in the build-up play which saw James McArthur head just wide.

This dour game was putting the stale into stalemate. Minutes earlier, Chung-Yong Lee also went down in the box after manufacturing a yard of space but failed to get his shot away. But disaster struck just two minutes later when Kelly was dispossessed on the halfway line by Kyle Naughton and the full-back's through ball left Ayew in a foot race with Hennessey.

Satellite for Taiwan launched from California
Twelve launches in one year puts SpaceX ahead of its closes competitor in 2017, the Russian state space agency. The rocket carried the Formosat-5 satellite into orbit for the Taiwanese National Space Organization (NSPO).

That would change when Abraham would break the deadlock in the 44th minute. The 28-year-old was replaced by Martin Kelly and the former Liverpool defender was at fault for both Swansea goals. Swansea could be getting Fernando Llorente back in the lineup for the first team this season after he broke his arm.

A perfectly timed sliding challenge by Mike van der Hoorn prevented Palace substitute Yohan Cabaye halving the arrears, while Andros Townsend dragged narrowly wide of the Swansea goal late on.

The Terriers will come a cropper sooner rather than later no doubt, and I fear for them when they do, but at [4.0] to back at home to a side that must be deflated following their surprise midweek loss, well that's a price well worth chancing.
