Crystal Palace became the first team in Premier League history to lose their first five games without scoring as Roy Hodgson's tenure began with a 1-0 defeat to Southampton.
|We want Wilf to have the ball, to do what he's good at doing – beating players and running towards the opponents' goal,
Hodgson told BT Sport.
There's been no discussions (about selling Benteke),
Hodgson said. Christian has a contract with the club.
He rose to the challenge exceptionally well and his new contract is fully deserved,
said manager Roy Hodgson.
He has reached this form probably quicker than we thought and he has qualities,
said Hodgson. If he can play regularly for the last part of the season, then I think we will see him doing more and more as a player.
