Hodgson finds himself under increasing pressure at Selhurst Park.

The Premier League table since Crystal Palace reappointed Roy Hodgson

Roy Hodgson is coming under increasing pressure at Crystal Palace following Saturday’s dismal 5-0 defeat away to Arsenal.

The defeat continues a poor run of form for Hodgson’s Palace. They’ve won just one of their last 10 Premier League outings, taking six points from the last 30 available, and are out of both domestic cup competitions.

Palace find themselves 15th in the table, five points clear of the relegation zone. But they’ve only averaged a point a game in 2023-24 and might’ve found themselves in a more precarious position if the three newly promoted sides had shown more about themselves.

The club’s poor results this season beg the question of whether it was the right decision to keep Hodgson on past the summer. The veteran coach would’ve received a fitting farewell to a wonderful career had he bowed out after guiding them to midtable safety last term, having helped turn around their fortunes following Patrick Vieira’s dismissal in the spring.

But things could yet end on a sour note amid reports that the Palace hierarchy are considering a change of coach, with former Nottingham Forest coach Steve Cooper and ex-Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui said to be among the candidates.

Hodgson had a frosty demeanour as he spoke to the press following the heavy defeat at The Emirates.

“It is a struggle,” the 76-year-old said.

“There’s no doubt we have to keep looking over our shoulder and we are in a relegation battle, no question about that.

“I believe the team and club, and the group of players we have, are more than good enough to get us away from the relegation zone.”

But does his second Palace tenure look when you step back and look at it as a whole? We’ve taken a look at the Premier League table since he was appointed Vieira’s successor in March 2023.

Note: we’ve only included the 17 teams that have been in the English top flight throughout that time, so not including last season’s relegated trio or 2023-24’s newly-promoted sides.

1. Man City – 71pts (played 31)
2. Liverpool – 70pts (played 70)
3. Aston Villa – 66pts (played 32)
