  • Roy Hodgson looks on during a Melbourne City A League training session at City Football Academy

Roy Hodgson felt Crystal Palace were lacking in self-belief as they slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Southampton in his first game in charge.

The former England and Fulham manager oversaw his first training session at Palace's Beckenham training ground yesterday after signing a two-year contract to succeed Frank de Boer.

Hodgson was keen to switch his focus to Crystal Palace and wants to put his England career to the back of his as he prepares for their crucial game against Southampton tomorrow. He was replaced by former England manager Roy Hodgson and his arrival has prompted a backroom reshuffle.

Other reports suggest that Hodgson could be given £40m to spend Crystal Palace in January as they look to climb out of the drop zone.

A loan spell at Bournemouth, which had started well, ended early last season after he broke his leg playing against Tottenham. "I would have accepted managing them if I wasn't good enough to play for them".

Sitting bottom of the league, Palace visit Manchester City next week before travelling to Old Trafford to face Manchester Untied.

"We've handicapped ourselves by not taking any points in the first four games", he said.

The south London club lost their opening four Premier League games without scoring a goal, the worst start to an English top flight campaign for almost 100 years.

The loss was the Eagles' fifth in a row at the start of the new Premier League season - all without scoring. But nothing I can say will change those five results, nothing I can say will score a goal in those five games or give us any points from those five games.

'The money improves every year and the thought of relegation gets more and more frightening for the teams that are going to be threatened by it, so there's no doubt the pressure has increased.

"Matches do get lost when you're a football coach, particularly in tournament football and the tournament is over", said Hodgson.

"As far as I am concerned, it is, Crystal Palace, Crystal Palace, Crystal Palace, it's everyone at the club, hierarchy, players, chairman and owners and most importantly perhaps of all, the fans".
