Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson struggled to take a knee in support of Black Lives Matter before his side’s 4-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday.

With space limited in the dugout area at Stamford Bridge, the experienced Eagles boss still did his best to honour the now-customary gesture before kick-off.

After starting the 2020-21 Premier League season with back-to-back wins against Southampton and Man Utd, Palace have now lost successive games following this latest match.

Goals from Ben Chilwell, Kurt Zouma and two Jorginho penalties all came in the second half as Frank Lampard’s Blues picked up their first win since opening day.
