Crystal Palace boss, Roy Hodgson was full of admiration for his side’s performance, after seeing them earn a point against Manchester United on Wednesday.

The London side went into the game aiming to make it two wins against United in the league this season, while United were hoping to keep up pace with Manchester City at the top of the table.

However, it was the Eagles who ended up the happier side, as they didn’t only stop United from winning, but also avoided defeat against United in an individual season for the first time in the Premier League.

And after the game, Hodgson revealed he was happy with the way they played, especially in their shape and determination.

Roy Hodgson said, “The way the players went about the job was very commendable.

“Thanks to the shape of the team, the discipline and the determination, 0-0 was a very good result that we have got.”

United lost the first fixture against Palace earlier in the season 3-1, and have now failed to win any of their last three matches across all competitions.
