Crystal Palace vs Southampton English Premier League Match Preview


No top-flight side has ever managed that before in English football and Palace are the first team to fail to score in any of their first five Premier League games.

On the attacking side of things, he might start by playing 11 against two centre-backs and, from that, work on the patterns of play right through the team.

Hodgson's approach is very hands-on - he loves to be on the training ground working with you - and he knows exactly what he wants from you in terms of the team's organisation and shape. I watched Lemina today and he was like Iniesta but I can't work out if he is that good or if it was because he had no pressure.

De Boer had retained the former two.

"I still believe in the long-term, these players will pick themselves up from where they have been knocked down to", he said. 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.

England failed to win any of their three group games and were dumped out before the knockout phase for the first time at a World Cup since 1958.

At those smaller clubs, you probably get more loyalty from the players, who do not have the same big names and stature as those at the big clubs.

"We didn't play well enough".

But where does their shocking start stand amongst the Premier League's worst after the same amount of games?

And the final nail in the coffin for Hodgson's time in charge of England came with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Iceland in the first knockout round, which prompted the manager to step down ahead of his contract expiring. As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 19/10 for Crystal Palace to win against Southampton at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
