'He practises that from here to eternity' - how Hodgson can revive Palace

'He practises that from here to eternity' - how Hodgson can revive Palace

Dusan Tadic beat Jeffrey Schlupp and though his cross was palmed out by Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, Davis was on hand to tuck it in as the appointment of the former England manager in place of Frank de Boer paid no instant dividend. He has managed four Premier League clubs - Blackburn Rovers, Fulham FC, Liverpool and West Bromwich, having 34.72 % win rate in Premier League.

Hodgson will follow the same recipe that he has done for many, many years - a big part of his management approach is his day-to-day work with the team. The boos that greeted Hodgson's decision to substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Palace's outstanding player, with 12 minutes remaining were loud and vociferous.

Loftus-Cheek had Palace's two best efforts in the first half, releasing a 30th-minute drive from 25 yards that flew just wide of the left-hand post after good combination play with Christian Benteke.

But what does the Croydon-born man have to say after the defeat?

"There's a lot of players here who have been at the club a long time and had a lot of success, both helping the club up from the Championship and keeping them in the Premier League", he continued. They did that but after about ten minutes, that game was again [going] for us. Very confident. I will not fulfill this task if I do not believe in the opportunities we have.

"We've got to try very hard to make certain that people don't dig themselves into a grave".

"I didn't want to end it (my career) on a bad result but I think the 56 (England) games and the seven defeats is not so bad", he explained.

Fraser Forster was also on form as the Saints, making two key saves among other impressive bits of play in his own box.
