- Palace score four second-half goals to win 5-1 at Elland Road
- Leeds manager Javi Gracia trusts his players to recover
A smiling Roy Hodgson laughed off suggestions he possesses a magic wand after watching his Crystal Palace side deconstruct Leeds at Elland Road.
Palace’s 5-1 win – secured after they fell a goal behind – lifts Hodgson’s team to 12th, six points clear of the bottom three. The 75-year-old has presided over two wins in two games since emerging from retirement to return to Selhurst Park as interim replacement for the sacked Patrick Vieira. Palace had not won in 13 matches before Hodgson arrived.
