Palace boss Hodgson admits sleepless nights

Hodgson thanked the fans for their backing at St James' Park

Antonio, who picked up the knock in West Ham's 3-0 home defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion last week, missed the 3-2 League Cup fourth round win over Tottenham Hotspur in midweek but trained without contact on Thursday.

The media have reported that Hodgson has been given two more games to save his job, a notion that seems ridiculous to the experienced boss as he stood in solidarity with the likes of Bilic. It is pretty much like the classic question, is there an easy way to break somebody's heart?

"The slings and arrows of fortune that will either see you win the game or lose the game, if it's as simple as the fact that one's competence as a manager will be decided by that, I don't understand that".

"If I start complaining the pressure is too much for me then someone will ask me why I took the job and why I did not stay like I was between England and taking the Crystal Palace job". I wanted the experience. I took the job, that brings pressure and I will have to deal with that. Yes, I am afraid I do.

"That has not changed with time", he said.

Fair to say, that the 49-year-old still has his job is down to Ayew, who hit two goals to draw West Ham level from two goals down, before Angelo Ogbonna fetched the victor to complete the comeback against Tottenham.

"You can not compare those two things", he said.

The Hammers do have some history on their side heading into this contest, as they are 3-1-0 against Crystal Palace in the Premier League under Slaven Bilic.

"It is an enormous responsibility because a lot of money is involved".

"Wednesday night's game should set the standard for us, in terms of closing teams down, in terms of compactness, in terms of team play, in terms of sacrificing everything for the team", Bilic said.

"Of course you are representing a club which interests a lot of people".
