No team has ever lost their first five games in a top-flight season without scoring a goal, until now

Following their 1-0 defeat at home to Southampton on Saturday, Crystal Palace became the first team in top-flight history to lose their opening five games without even managing a goal.

It is certainly an unwanted record which Roy Hodgson has broken in his first game in charge at Selhurst Park.

The first four losses were overseen by Frank De Boer, but after the poor start to the season, Crystal Palace decided to part with the Dutch boss after just 77 days in charge.

Roy Hodgson took over earlier this week but he wasn’t able to have the instant impact he would have liked, as Palace were beaten once again by Southampton on his first game in charge.

The former England boss will be hoping to turn things around as quickly as possible before he breaks any more unwanted records at his boyhood club.
