Crystal Palace 0-1 Southampton

Posted September 17, 2017

Molby explained: "Even though 70-year-old Roy Hodgson undoubtedly is what the English call a safe pair of hands, he is not a managerial choice that will inspire quite a lot of Premier League stars".

Morning all. It's been quite the week for Crystal Palace with the dismissal of Frank de Boer, the appointment of former England manager Roy Hodgson, and a backroom reshuffle this morning.

And they have still not found the back of the net in their Premier League games this season - breaking the all-time record for the longest a side has gone without finding the net at the start of a campaign.

Steven Davis scored the only goal of the game after six minutes and Southampton, for whom Virgil van Dijk came on as a substitute to play his first game in eight months, survived the odd second-half scare to take all three points. After that, Palace will undergo three heavy matches, which face the duo of Manchester United and Manchester City giants before serving a visit to Chelsea.

With all that being said, I am predicting this game to be a win for Southampton.

"Like every football match, afterwards if you've won it you're bouncing a little bit and are on something of a high, and when you lose it you're on something of a low".

The former England manager was speaking after presiding over a disappointing 1-0 defeat by Southampton at Selhurst Park, the Eagles' third league loss at home and fifth in total this season without a goal to their name, having taken charge this week.

"But it's a chapter that's finished, in the past as far as I'm concerned, and now 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. We could have scored another goal but playing here is really hard". "You could see today that Crystal Palace were good", said Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino. "What Palace have done only piles more pressure on Premier League managers".
