Roy Hodgson: Sam Allardyce never apologised for mocking how I speak

Palace go to Goodison Park on Saturday in desperate need of a win and Morrison is anxious for Roy Hodgson's side without their main man Wilfried Zaha.

Allardyce, who went on to enjoy a successful six-month stint in charge of Palace last season before resigning in May after retaining the club's top-flight status, is apparently intent upon addressing the issue on Saturday.

Zaha now tops a list of nine players out for a reasonable amount of time: Zaha (knee), Sako (ankle), Speroni (knee), Wickham (knee), Dann (knee), Kelly (hamstring), Schlupp (knee), Loftus-Cheek (ankle), and Puncheon (knee).

"We don't know how long he is out for, that is the bottom line and it's incredible he was able to play so long i in the game with the injury". "He's a very quick healer and we'll be working to get him back as soon as possible".

"We know he will definitely not play against Everton [in the Premier League on Saturday], that's for sure, and it might even take a week or two more than that. All the time the chance persists to get him back we will be doing our very best to do that but he certainly is not one who likes to be on the sidelines so he will be pushing the medical people to let him back onto the field as soon as possible".


CLINTON MORRISON fears Crystal Palace could be dragged back into the relegation zone if Christian Benteke doesn't start scoring goals. "Quite frankly, I can't remember having this many injured at my previous clubs". Far too late. It has gone. We won't feel sorry for ourselves or make excuses.

He went on to criticize what he termed as Hodgson's lack of decision-making abilities as he argued with his assistant Gary Neville over the introduction of substitute Marcus Rashford in the knockout round game against Gylfi Sigurdsson's Iceland.

"They are not a one man team but when he plays he beats players and that gives space for other players to work in". Two wins can lift you considerably. "It could have been Ronald Koeman against Frank de Boer". We need to keep up that points tally in the final 12 games.

"He's a good manager so they obviously wanted him enough", said McArthur about his former manager. "This year there doesn't seem to be a real middle of the table".
