Roy Hodgson makes Everton transfer admission
Roy Hodgson has admitted Everton will provide a tough challenge to Crystal Palace this weekend thanks to their ‘excellent’ new signings.
Carlo Ancelotti will take his squad to Selhurst Park on Saturday looking to continue a fantastic start to the 2020/21 season.
The Blues have won all four of their matches so far in all competitions, most recently booking their place in the fourth round of the League Cup thanks to a 5-2 victory over Fleetwood Town on Wednesday evening.
Palace themselves have six points from their opening two Premier League matches, and their manager is looking forward to another meeting with Ancelotti.
However, he’s not so keen on the challenge Everton will pose.
Hodgson admitted: “He is a friend from my Italian days, and I am looking forward to seeing him, albeit not so much looking forward to the challenge his team are going to present on Saturday.”
