Roy Hodgson makes losing start as Palace slump to Southampton defeat

"But I'm not suggesting hard work in training will produce Messis and Ronaldos in the next three months", Hodgson told reporters after a defeat that left Palace bottom of the table.

Hodgson's predecessor Frank de Boer's three-year contract was terminated the day before Hodgson's hiring, after his fourth consecutive defeat in the English Premier League.

But replacing the sacked Frank de Boer at Palace doesn't look like being an easy comeback gig judging by their struggles in losing a fifth straight game in the Premier League with Davis converting the victor from close range.

Roy Hodgson says England's loss to Iceland at Euro 2016 did not make him doubt himself as a coach.

ROY HODGSON suffered a nightmare start to his Crystal Palace reign - with Steven Davis netting the victor just six minutes into his first game.

"I can't change the fixture list, all I can do is encourage the players to be as mentally strong as possible", Hodgson said.

"It was the worst possible start, conceding the goal so early, a team that's obviously a little bit nervous and anxious anyway becomes even more nervous and anxious".

Hodgson's Palace side could hardly be faring worse this season, now sitting rock bottom of the Premier League table without a point to their name after four games.

"We've handicapped ourselves by not taking any points in the first four games", he said.

But where does their shocking start stand amongst the Premier League's worst after the same amount of games? We are getting a pretty good price on this bet and due to that, I am going to suggest this bet.

Roy Hodgson on battling relegation: "I believe the team will stay up - absolutely".

"As far as I am concerned, it is, Crystal Palace, Crystal Palace, Crystal Palace, it's everyone at the club, hierarchy, players, chairman and owners and most importantly perhaps of all, the fans". After the goal, you could see the nerves and the anxiety.
