Bad start cost us says boss

On the attacking side of things, he might start by playing 11 against two centre-backs and, from that, work on the patterns of play right through the team.

"The major disappointment is that the attitude and the desire of the players that was obvious to us even in the two or three days we've been training didn't get any kind of reward", the Palace boss said.

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.

Sky Sports and Sportsmail pundit Redknapp said the team are having an identity crisis due to the change in approach by Hodgson compared to his predecessor, Frank de Boer. All I can do is to try and encourage the players to be as mentally strong as they can possibly be.

It is fair to say that Crystal Palace have endured a dismal start to the season.

Well, when that didn't immediately pay dividends and the whole idea of transformation seems to be abandoned already, not even half-a-dozen games into the season, Roy Hodgson stepped in.

"I enjoyed my time with England - a huge honour".

Hard to find sympathy for many Crystal Palace fans after the way they went on about Alan Pardew, as Newcastle supporters only did the decent thing and tried to warn them...

As a result, De Boer lost his job, giving him the unwanted record of the shortest reign of a manager in terms of matches played in the Premier League era.

Hodgson's attitude is that individual players should sacrifice themselves for the good of the team. "The statistics dig us into a grave, but only what we do on the football field can get us out of it or make the situation worse".

Redknapp continued: 'You have to get after the ball.

Palace's long wait for a first league goal of the season could have ended 10 minutes after Saints went ahead through Davis when Benteke met Loftus-Cheek's low cross at the near post but Forster got his body in the way to make the save.

Following the defeat, Hodgson has urged his side to forget about their poor start and perform better in the upcoming months.

Steven Davis' early strike earned Southampton their second win of the season and condemned Crystal Palace to a fifth consecutive defeat.
