Crystal Palace winger Eze enjoying Hodgson methods

Crystal Palace winger Eberechi Eze has appreciated his first months with manager Roy Hodgson.

Eze arrived in the summer from QPR.

"I'm learning a lot every day," he said. "With the manager, Roy Hodgson, you're put into a position where you have to learn quick and I feel like I'm doing that. I feel like I'm picking stuff up very, very quickly, not only from the manager but from the players in the team.

"The way he speaks to me and the advice he gives me is only going to give me confidence and help me to improve, become a better player. I'm learning so much at the moment and a lot of that is down to him.

"He's always talking to me on the touchline, talking to me about how I can get better, what I can do to get better, where I need to improve. Not only that but helping me with the things I'm good at and wanting me to get into positions where I can be as effective as I can.

"Because of course I'm not just in the team to defend, he wants me to be creative as well and that's an important part of my game."
