Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson puts celebrations on hold

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson puts celebrations on hold

Crystal Palace have the talent and squad depth to cope with their lengthy injury list and beat Burnley in Saturday's Premier League encounter, on-loan defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has said.

The Red Devils are now overstocked in the positions Fosu-Mensah would normally be considered to play in and so he was sent out on loan to another Premier League club to learn his trade.

Since taking over at Selhurst Park, the former England boss has transformed the Eagles from odds-on relegation favourites to a side closing in on the division's top 10 and with just one defeat since November 5.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Hodgson said: "I have no desire in January to celebrate being in 11th place. I would like to hope he will be closer to one month rather than months".

For all intents and purposes, the home side should've had the game wrapped up by half-time after dominating the first-half and scoring through in-form forward Bakary Sako.

The latest success was built on Bakary Sako's well-taken first-half goal, some sparkling moves before the break and a more resilient performance in the second half, when Burnley stirred and began to pose a threat.

"For me it is good to be involved in this level of the game and it makes me stronger as a player and can only be to my advantage".

Sako and Zaha provided an outlet for the Eagles as the clock dwindled and the makeshift defence held firm to give the Eagles a clean sheet and all three points.

But it was never going to be enough to deny Palace another priceless three points as they continue to edge their way to safety.

"I have been [keen for him to stay] for a long time".

"He has come in and feels under pressure because he's not had the opportunity to play all the games beforehand, but both will go home tonight more confident about themselves and their performance, knowing that the coaching staff appreciate what they have done".
