Nothing seems to be going in the right way for Crystal Palace. The Eagles lost have now seven matches on the trot and are very much on the course to their eighth loss as they are scheduled to face defending champions Chelsea up next.
Roy Hodgson’s appointment was supposed to be a break away from the conventional strategies and game plan but the former England manager too has failed to grind out any positivity from this crop of players. He is the fourth manager at the Selhurst Park in less than a year which proves how adamant the Palace hierarchy is to keep the club up in the Premier League.
Frank De Boer was relieved of his duties as the former Inter Milan manager struggled to cope up in the Premier League. Palace made some business in the latter part of the transfer window and they still have room for two players in the squad which must have been noticed by Hodgson. Here are three players he should look to sign in January to improve his side’s chances in the top flight.
Jack Wilshere (Arsenal):
The Arsenal midfielder has been on and off the field. Arsene Wenger sent the player on loan to Bournemouth last season in a hope to retrieve his form. The playmaker started pretty good at the South Coast but subsequently went on to disappear as his form hit the lower level.
Still, he has hopes to book a place on the flight to Russia for the World Cup commencing next year. Hodgson should take this chance to bring the player at the Selhurst Park whom he had managed during his time as the Three Lions manager.
The only problem with Wilshere is his fitness. A player of his stature hasn’t been exploited the way he should have. He managed to showcase a different athleticism last season and should replicate this if he does leave the Emirates.
Theo Walcott (Arsenal):
Another Arsenal player who doesn’t have a very secure future at the Emirates. The winger has fallen down the pecking order and has been served an ultimatum already. Hodgson should seize this opportunity to welcome the player at the Selhurst Park.
Walcott no doubt has all the qualities to flourish and would be an upgrade to the likes of Chung-Yong Lee.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (Newcastle United):
The Serbian International is currently not the preferred choice at the St James Park and would definitely be looking a better option. Christian Benteke has been awful in front of the goal and Hodgson should bring a capable hitman to find the back of the net and Mitrovic, along with his experience, could be a decent option for the Eagles.
