Martin Keown explains awkward situation facing Crystal Palace after Roy Hodgson appointment

Wilshere talks to Arsene Wenger during training as he prepares to return to the first team

The cheers that greeted Hodgson at the start were replaced by jeers when the Croydon-born boss chose to replaced Loftus-Cheek with Bakary Sako.

Hodgson was officially appointed as the new Eagles manager on Tuesday night following the sacking of Frank de Boer on Monday.

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. 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.

Sampha's Process wins the Mercury Prize
Sampha , the handsome and loveable genius behind last year's tearjerker Process , has taken out the prestigious Mercury Prize . Actor and DJ Idris Elba presented Sampha with the award after saying that English music is at the best it's ever been, ever.

Hodgson spoke with Jim White on talkSPORT on Wednesday, outlining his plans for Crystal Palace, but is bullish that he can move the Eagles away from the relegation zone.

"I suppose when I was a child, my dreams were playing for the club", Hodgson said on Friday at Palace's Beckenham training ground.

"It was the worst possible start, conceding the goal so early, a team that's obviously a little bit nervous and anxious anyway becomes even more nervous and anxious".

Donald Trump signs resolution condemning white supremacy
The president's remarks aboard Air Force One late Thursday addressed a meeting he had a day earlier with Sen. We are a Nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal.

In the last five head to head records between these two teams in English Carabao Cup, English Premier League, and English FA Cup, Southampton won three matches and two matches by Crystal Palace.

As the game entered its closing stages, Southampton's Mario Lemina nearly created enough space for himself to shoot as the visitors sought the second goal that would seal the points, but was crowded out. 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.

Hodgson is a former junior player of the Palace in the 1960s but has never managed to penetrate the first team.

17 percent of Manatee County waiting for power after Irma
More than 3 million people in Florida and Georgia remain without power days after Hurricane Irma unleashed its fury on the states. FPL said on Tuesday it planned to restore power to eastern Florida by this weekend and to western Florida by September 22.

"I don't honestly believe that there is necessarily a lot that needs to be done", he told Palace TV. "You could see today that Crystal Palace were good", said Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino. De Boer was relieved of his duties after he lost all four of the club's opening four Premier League games without scoring a single goal. We are getting a pretty good price on this bet and due to that, I am going to suggest this bet.
