Hodgson hopes his team will react to the recent defeats.
boss Roy Hodgson expects a reaction from his players in the match against Leicester City.
Palace lost their previous match againstLiverpool
, 7-0, with which Jürgen Klopp's team climbed to the top of the table, but this weak course of Palace did not stop, and they also lost to 10-man Aston Villa on Boxing Day with a result of 3-0. Hodgson now asked his players to react to these results in the match against Leicester City and get a better outcome.
Hodgson said: “You can always lose two games in a row in this league. I don’t think I’m that concerned that we are a particularly inconsistent team that don’t have a clear idea of what they should be doing. But it’s a question of results and the last two results have been very bad ones.”
asked about his side defeat against 10-men Aston Villa, Hodgson added: "
That is a very concerning and worrying factor.
“Somehow we’ve got to find the mental strength to make certain that, when we go out and play Leicester, we ask more questions and cause more problems than we were able to against Villa.
“We really need to get back to a level that we showed quite early on in the season that has been missing – I don’t want to say for two games because Liverpool was very special – but certainly (against Villa).”
