The Eagles are the first team in English top-flight history to open a season with five consecutive defeats without scoring as the Saints conducted a smash and grad raid at Selhurst Park.
We will bring you updates from his post-match press conference here, below. "I saw a team that dominated the game and defended well".
Southampton put in a solid display to come away from Selhurst Park with all three points on Saturday, as Crystal Palace set a Premier League record for the longest ever run without a goal from a club at the start of a campaign.
"It's very hard to impose a style of play if you don't have the players to play it, that's pretty obvious", said Hodgson ahead of his first game in charge, Saturday's visit of Southampton to Selhurst Park.
Although staff and players found Hodgson's enthusiasm infectious, especially on the training ground, where there was a sense he could not have been in a happier place (it is tempting to think he is much better suited to club rather than worldwide management on that point alone), he also had an edge to him and was not afraid to light the fuse when things were not done right.
"We should have scored another goal but I am happy with the performance". They created a couple of chances at the beginning but after that I don't remember too many clear chances for them. We also did really well defensively from the beginning until the end.
"I expected Crystal Palace in the second half would press a little bit higher and to react".
During those video meetings he could obviously see the team moving around in a game and he would stop and point out where I was.
Palace now face a daunting fixture list that sees them face Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea in their next three league games and Hodgson has warned that things may get worse still before they get better.
