De Boer laments lack of courage
Crystal Palace 0-2 Swansea City
Frank de Boer blamed Crystal Palace's lack of courage for his third straight defeat as Eagles manager.
De Boer's unhappy start to life at Selhurst Park continued as Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew scored either side of half-time to hand Swansea a 2-0 win - their first of the season.
Palace have yet to score in De Boer's three Premier League games and only West Ham are below them in the table.
"In the first half we did not show any courage on the ball," De Boer said.
"There were lots of moments we could play on the ground, but we did not feel comfortable on the ball. I cannot say it was because Swansea did a fantastic job.
"It was two teams who did not play their best and it is the team who makes less mistakes who win this kind of game.
"We could have done better with both goals, but I only saw the courage after it went to 2-0.
"That is the Crystal Palace I want to see, we created chances then and Swansea did not."
On-loan Chelsea youngster Abraham put Swansea ahead with his first Premier League goal a minute before the break.
Ayew then struck three minutes after the re-start and Palace fans vented their frustration both at half-time and full-time.
Swansea boss Paul Clement was delighted with his side's first league victory.
"I'm particularly happy with the result, although it is at a very early stage of the season it was an important game," Clement said.
