Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway is excited to be back in the Premier League.

Holloway is relishing a return to the Premier League, having seen his Blackpool side relinquish their prime status after just one season, but is braced for an even sterner test this time around.

"It's exciting, exhilarating; the energy of the division, how many people are there, the buzz around the grounds," he told Sky Sports.

"My experience will help but I think it's even tougher than before with the quality the teams have added. The dynamics of this division have changed so much, with (Manuel) Pellegrini coming in, Sir Alex (Ferguson) retiring, Jose (Mourinho) back.

"We're expecting ups and downs. We're not expecting to win the division; we have to try and finish top of a very small group at the bottom."
