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.

Stretching back to the end of last season, they have now gone six consecutive league games without a goal for the first since January 1995 (a run of nine) and have had three different managers in that time - Sam Allardyce, De Boer and Hodgson.

Saints, who had last scored when they beat West Ham United 3-2 at home on August 19, notched their second win to move up to provisional fifth spot on eight points before the afternoon kickoffs, while Palace are rooted to the bottom of the table.

"The desire was there but unfortunately it was a frantic desire, it was a desire where you're chasing and hoping, not a desire where you're in control and moving the ball around well and causing the opponents lots of problems".

"At Fulham I had 18 games, West Brom 12 games", he recalled. I thought in the second half, we did get up to the ball better - nowhere near as well as I would like to see going forward - but we did do it better.

He went on, "We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years". Soon after the attack, Trump pointed fingers at British police and advised them to be "proactive".

The 70-year-old said he would continue to assess his squad to find the best players for the task ahead, which includes visiting title contenders Manchester City and Manchester United before hosting Chelsea in Palace's next three league games. That being said, they are still not playing well and are up against some strong opposition in Southampton.

"The statistics dig us into a grave, but only what we do on the football field can get us out of it or make the situation worse".

"You have to fight for every single point".

Roy Hodgson's debut game in charge of Crystal Palace ended in defeat as Southampton won 1-0 at Selhurst Park. "That was a chapter in my life and that chapter is now finished and I am really focused on the next one". "We could have scored another goal but playing here is really hard".

The London club are yet to even score a goal in the Premier League this season. "What Palace have done only piles more pressure on Premier League managers".
