Crystal Palace midfielder McArthur: Hodgson will guide us to safety

Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur insists there's no reason to panic over their form slump.

Palace have won only one of their last six games this season under manager Roy Hodgson.

But McArthur told the Express: “Roy is great. His experience is proven.

“We have changed a lot of managers since I have been here, but now under Roy we have got stability. When we lose a couple of games no one panics.

“When he first came in, we lost the first three games, but there was no panic. He's a real, settled, experienced manager, and that sinks down to the players.

“It's not only about when you are losing games. When you are losing, it is easy for a manager to feel under more pressure. You don't get that sense with Roy."
