Crystal Palace 19/10 to win against Southampton in Saturday's Premier League clash

18 September 2017

English edition of Asharq Al-Awsat - the world's premier pan-Arab daily. All I can do is to try and encourage the players to be as mentally strong as they can possibly be.

Hodgson added: "The change of management has not brought the magic-wand effect but I still believe in the long run these players will pick themselves up off the floor, where they've been knocked to now". The only thing that will get you a good start is a performance where you score more goals against the opposition and we certainly didn't do that today.

Palace paid for slack defending in just the sixth minute when a Dusan Tadic cross-shot was parried to the feet of Steven Davis, who side-footed home from 10 yards.

Between his time at Fulham and West Brom, Hodgson had an unsuccessful spell at Liverpool that lasted only six months.

Boos could be heard around Selhurst Park when Loftus-Cheek was taken off with 13 minutes of normal time left to play.

Crystal Palace have confirmed that Orlando Trustfull, Sammy Lee and Ryland Morgans have stepped down from their respective positions at the club on 16 September. Dan Ashworth, who was the technical director at the time, was confident Hodgson would thrive in that situation because of his desire to be out on the training ground every day.

"Roy was a special guy and he taught me a lot: how to play midfield on the defensive side - backing up play, shuffling across, blocking up lines".

"There are no dream jobs where you walk in, put your tracksuit on, and suddenly it materialises and goes well".

But that is his method, and the Palace players are going to have to get used to it, because he will be working them incredibly hard.

Hodgson is a gentleman in terms of how he behaves, but he was not afraid to make his point more forcefully if he had to.

By the end of the sessions his squad were mentally and physically drained. They are performing poorly in this season.
