Roy Hodgson makes losing start as Palace slump to Southampton defeat

It is now five games without a goal, or a point for Crystal Palace this season after a 1-0 defeat to Southampton at Selhurst Park.

Hodgson, whose first game in charge will be against Southampton on Saturday, had graduated through the youth team ranks at Palace in the 1960s and has spoken of his pride at a homecoming.

"We were very nervous in the first half, people didn't show any confidence on the ball and we wanted to persuade them they didn't need to have that lack of confidence".

The 70-year-old last worked in the English Premier League with West Brom in 2012 before leaving to become England manager. Wilshere was one of Hodgsons most utilised players during his time as England manager, selecting the midfielder 29 times from his 56 matches in charge.

An early strike from Steven Davis after Dusan Tadic's cross had been parried by Wayne Hennessey is all that now stands between the sides, but Hodgson's men have rarely anxious, other than a Christian Benteke effort that was well saved by Fraser Forster.

Hodgson said: "Matches do get lost when you are a football coach, especially in tournament football, where, when the match is lost, the tournament is over for you".

"Roy, I think, will do a really good job at Palace and I'm delighted for him, because I'd hate for his career to have been remembered for what happened with England last summer".

"We have just got to get down to working with the players, deciding which ones are the best ones to get us out of trouble".

Steven Davis scored his first Premier League goal since May 15 2016 - also against Crystal Palace. That time is gone. That chapter is finished.

I would rather watch Palace games from the past and concentrate on that.

"It's a chapter in the book of life opening for me and one I'm looking forward to, one I'm hoping brings joy to the fans of Crystal Palace".

"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".
