Crystal Palace woes continue with new Boss Roy Hodgson

Jack Wilshere is in line for a start when Arsenal open their Europa League campaign

On Tuesday, former manager of England's football team Roy Hodgson signed a two-year contract with London-based football club Crystal Palace, the club announced via their official website.

Steven Davis was a pre-match 14/1 to score the first goal of the game.

Sitting bottom of the league, Palace visit Manchester City next week before travelling to Old Trafford to face Manchester Untied. It was a desire where you're chasing and hoping, not a desire where you're in control and moving the ball around well and causing the opponents lots of problems. I thought in the second half, we did get up to the ball better - nowhere near as well as I would like to see going forward - but we did do it better.

As the game entered its closing stages, Southampton's Mario Lemina nearly created enough space for himself to shoot as the visitors sought the second goal that would seal the points, but was crowded out.

"On the psychological aspect, we have to make sure people don't dig themselves into a grave", Hodgson said.




'The pressure has always been there and it'll only get stronger, ' Hodgson told talkSPORT.

And while Palace will surely show more faith in 70-year-old replacement Roy Hodgson, an experienced "safe pair of hands" appointed to guide the club through the mess rather than revolutionise their style of play, question marks will undoubtedly be asked if he too endured a hard start to life with the London club.

"Like every football match, afterwards if you've won it you're bouncing a little bit and are on something of a high, and when you lose it you're on something of a low. That was a chapter in my life and that chapter is now finished and I am really focused on the next one".

Mauricio Pellegrino on the lack of goals: "I think the number of goals is there because we scored three goals and it's a fact".

And they have still not found the back of the net in their Premier League games this season - breaking the all-time record for the longest a side has gone without finding the net at the start of a campaign. It could be a good year if it ends up with Palace in the Premier League and the fans happy.
