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

Sammy Lee

Hodgson replaced Frank de Boer in midweek after the Eagles had started the Premier League season with four straight defeats and no goals.

Palace find themselves rooted to the bottom of the Premier League on the back of no wins and no goals in the opening five fixtures of the campaign - a top-flight record - and they now face a daunting set of fixtures.

After giving Hodgson such a warm welcome and backing even when behind at the break, some of the Palace faithful lost their cool when Ruben Loftus-Cheek's number was held up.

Knowing that Christian Benteke was their main contributor for the scoresheet, Crystal Palace have failed to bring in anybody that would offer competition to his spot or an alternative style of play to better suit de Boer's tactics.

The match ending Crystal Palace 0 Southampton 1 and Palace now standing at 450 minutes, seven and a half hours, of the new season without a goal.

The principles are the same as other managers I have played under but it is the level of detail and how precise he is with his instructions that makes Hodgson different. 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.

"The work at Crystal Palace football club is on that field of play in both training and matches and it is going to be up to the players as well as the coaches to take that responsibility and accept this is a bad moment for the club". The 70-year-old is now working at a club operating at a similar level and faced with some of the same challenges that confronted him in the Midlands.

Hodgson, who was also approached when Sam Allardyce was appointed to succeed Alan Pardew at Palace in December, takes on his first managerial role since resigning from the England post after Euro 2016.

Looking at Palace's squad, they have enough players who will understand that, and they will suit Hodgson's approach quite well.

If fans thought this start was a tough one, they better hope that Roy Hodgson has a part time gig as a miracle worker.

Roy Hodgson is confident of turning Crystal Palace's fortunes around - but admits things may get worse before they get better.
