Roy Hodgson admitted Crystal Palace need to mould themselves into a better team following their 1-0 home defeat to Southampton.

The former England manager this week signed a two-year contract to succeed Frank de Boer after the Dutchman was sacked following defeats in all four league fixtures without a single goal.

Hodgson, who has been out of management since he resigned following England's humiliating exit at Euro 2016 losing to minnows Iceland, said going behind early on ― to a sixth minute goal by Steven Davis― had prompted his players to go into their shell.

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.

Determination of the champion or the degraded team will not be determined from the result of the match in September, "said Hodgson".

After Saturday's visit of the Saints, Hodgson's men face trips to Manchester City and Manchester United before hosting Chelsea.

"At Fulham I had 18 games, West Brom 12 games", he recalled. Crystal Palace was yet to score a goal, and they were nineteenth in the league table.

'The pressure has always been there and it'll only get stronger, ' Hodgson told talkSPORT. "Once the chairman made it clear that he thought that we were the right people, then there has never been a doubt in my mind, and this could be a very good year because if it ends up with us still in the Premier League and the fans happy, then that would make me very happy".

Palace did not offer enough and allowed the away side to keep possession too easily as they secured a first win since 19 August.

"We're four games in and the start has been a poor one, we can't deny that, but there's 38 games in the league season and there's 34 more to play and quite frankly the relegation issues are not going to be decided this side of Christmas, they're probably not going to be decided this side of Easter".
