Crystal Palace 0 Southampton 1: Roy Hodgson's first game ends in defeat

Wilshere talks to Arsene Wenger during training as he prepares to return to the first team

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

After replacing Frank de Boer in midweek, the former England and Fulham manager was unable to inspire an instant change in fortunes for the Eagles, although he did praise some aspects of his players' performance at Selhurst Park as they lost out to an early goal from Steven Davis.

But replacing the sacked Frank de Boer at Palace doesn't look like being an easy comeback gig judging by their struggles in losing a fifth straight game in the Premier League with Davis converting the victor from close range.

Hodgson spoke with Jim White on talkSPORT on Wednesday, outlining his plans for Crystal Palace, but is bullish that he can move the Eagles away from the relegation zone.

Writing his weekly column for Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet, Liverpool legend Jan Molby has said he understands the appointment, but pointed out it's not going to push the Selhurst Park club forward.

"This is very much the club of my boyhood and I remember in my youth watching the club from the terraces at the Holmesdale Road end which gave me such fond memories", he told Palace's website.

His resistance meant the hosts set a new top-flight record as they surpassed the 438 minutes Newcastle went without a goal at the start of the 2005-06 season.

Crystal Palace is the team which is in the bottom of the standing table.

Hodgson is a former junior player of the Palace in the 1960s but has never managed to penetrate the first team.

He said: "I have watched the Iceland game, but not for about 14 months and I do not intend to watch it back now as it has no relevance to my work".

"I'm learning all the time, in training and also in games".

"The anxiety, especially in the first half, was there for all to see, in the second there were better signs, we were prepared to put our foot on the ball and pass it". We are getting a pretty good price on this bet and due to that, I am going to suggest this bet. "You can always get off to a bad start, what we've got to remember is our fate will be decided after 38 games, not four".
