Roy Hodgson believes Crystal Palace can still improve

Crystal Palace have enjoyed a much better start to their Premier League campaign this season they than did in the last campaign.

The Eagles defeated Huddersfield Town on Saturday with a fine Wilfried Zaha strike as Roy Hodgson sees in a year of being at Selhurst Park.

However, the manager believes that his side can still make improvements to his team and according to football.london, the former England manager believes there are some exciting times to be had in south London.

“It’s really good to work with the group of players who are an excellent group to work with and it’s good to see that we are progressing in my opinion,” he said.

“We’ve got a lot more progression to come, don’t forget (Aaron) Wan-Bissaka is just 10 or 11 league games maybe [as a pro]. Patrick van Aanholt was fantastic at the end of the last season but still with his qualities a margin for progression.

“We’ve still got to see if Cheikhou Kouyate and Max Meyer and these guys can help us out, so there’s a lot to look forward to and it’s a much nicer position to be in after five games this year than it was last season that’s for sure.”

The Verdict:

Crystal Palace still certainly have some improvements to make as they continue to struggle when Zaha is not in the team for whatever reason.

However, Hodgson is right to suggest that there is the possibility of progression to be made at Selhurst Park with the likes of Wan-Bissaka and Van Aanholt to reach their potential this season.

Kouyate and Meyer have largely featured from the substitutes bench, however, both have reputations for being great footballers and Palace will be looking for them to help make a positive impact on the side.
