Hodgson reveals Crystal Palace ‘fear’ nobody ahead of Chelsea clash

Roy Hodgson says that his Crystal Palace team fear nobody in the Premier League as they prepare to play high-flying Chelsea this weekend.

The Eagles have won two of their last three games including their remarkable 3-2 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Hodgson feels his side never begin any fixture lacking self-belief when they’re facing the bigger teams and the former England manager said his team just needs to be more aware of how they are likely to be punished for their own mistakes when they face a higher standard of opposition.

“We never fear any game, we don’t go in there thinking we don’t have much chance,” Hodgson told his pre-match press conference.

“But you know you’re playing a good quality team, you’re more fearful of players they have that can hurt you if make mistakes or don’t do your job to restrict them.”

After Chelsea, Palace then play Wolves at Molineux before facing League Two’s Grimsby Town at Selhurst Park in the FA Cup.
