Southampton defeat Crystal Palace to hand them unwanted record

Hodgson was aided by his trusted assistant Ray Lewington as the pair look to register the Eagles first point of the Premier League season, let alone goal, in what will be their fifth match at the weekend. He was replaced by former England manager Roy Hodgson and his arrival has prompted a backroom reshuffle.

On the other hand, the Crystal Palace hierarchy will be becoming increasingly concerned by the threat of relegation as the Eagles still lacked any offensive quality or fresh ideas despite the change of manager this week.

Pellegrino said: "I have got the best strikers I can have at this moment".

In 2014's FIFA World Cup, England were eliminated in the group stage, and a year ago, following 2-1 defeat against Iceland in Euro 2016, Roy Hodgson announced resignation from the post.

Crystal Palace have become the first club in the Premier League to lose their opening five games of a season.

Palace now face a daunting fixture list that sees them face Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea in their next three league games and Hodgson has warned that things may get worse still before they get better.

The Huygens lander separated from Cassini and plopped down on the surface of Saturn's moon Titan shortly after the arrival. Cassini entered the gap and came out again 22 times during its mission - the last time being just last week.

Palace were playing for the first time under new manager Hodgson but were reeling in the sixth minute when Davis steered the ball into the bottom corner after home goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey beat out a low right cross from Dusan Tadic.

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. But I've said to the players already that our focus is really on May, not the end of September.

Hodgson's first match as Crystal Palace's manager is to be an away match against Southampton FC, scheduled for tomorrow.

"We lost a knockout game and I was very sad about that".

"I am very excited to be back in club football and it is a long while since I have enjoyed the day-to-day sessions of training".
