Breaking News ! Hello, and welcome to football.london's live coverage of Roy Hodgson's press conference following the 2-0 defeat by Wolves in the Premier League. Hodgson made just one change to the starting line up with Patrick van Aanholt coming in for the injured Tyrick Mitchell. Palace started brightly, with Michy Batshuayi seeing a goal ruled out for offside by VAR. But Rayan Ait-Nouri opened the scoring immediately after, with Pedro Neto adding a second. VAR intervened again after Palace had won a penalty, ruling the decision out for offside. And in the closing stages, Luka Milivojevic saw a red card after Martin Atkinson checked the pitchside monitor for a dangerous tackle. Read everything Hodgson has to say below.22:30Joe DoyleAppealing Luka's red?I think so, yeah. If it's up to me. I think three games out would be a gross injustice.22:29Joe DoyleNobby StilesLike all footballer loves, I was a very keen spectator on TV of that wonderful final.Nobby showed his heart and soul running around the pitch afterwards.His contribution throughout the World Cup was enormous.I know he had enormous respect from his teammates. I know other members of his team and spoke of how highly they valued his contribution. I've only ever heard good things about him.And obviously I pass on my condolences.22:28Joe DoyleConcerned about time it took for red card?Well I'd rather it leads to the right decision. On this occasion, he does what he has to do, makes decisions he has to do.I've got to say the slow motion stuff maybe encourages the referee to see something that may not be there.22:27Joe DoyleFrustration at half-time?I didn't see video of the penalty, I'm told it was a close offside on PVA in the build up.22:26Joe DoyleMilivojevicUnfortunately passes are sometimes short. He stepped in to try and recover it. I think it's all part and parcel of the game.22:26Joe DoyleYour assessment?Wolves started strongly, we didn't. Found ourselves two down, but rallied very well.End of the first half we were playing the best football, asking a lot of questions and working very hard.Unfortunately a couple of mistakes in our defence and none in theirs.VAR wasn't on our side, the one that bothers me is Milivojevic. I thought it was a solid tackle.22:24Joe DoyleRoy's hereHere we go...
.22:21Joe DoyleAit-Nouri again - mature performance?Think he did well, honestly. He's settled well. Big help from Saiss. Special group.22:21Joe DoyleAdama TraoreIt's amazing. What a player.

Especially on the right side. The idea is always to start the best we can, but we play against very good teams.22:18Joe DoyleHappy with Ait-Nouri's performanceHe should be proud. 19 years old in the Premier League. The memory will stay because of the goal. Fantastic.22:17Joe DoylePodence off the mark - pleased?Yeah, of course, really pleased.We had good chances, good strikes, good saves. He scored, it's fantastic for him and his confidence.22:16Joe DoyleJoint topWhat we have to do is improve from the last month, try to sustain. 22:16Joe DoyleAit-NouriHe has talent, I am really happy for him. He's 19. He was able to score.22:15Joe DoyleVAR make the right decisions?I didn't see them really to be honest with you. 22:14Joe DoyleNuno is hereThe home coach gets his presser going....22:13Joe DoyleGood eveningA disappointing result for Palace tonight, but not perhaps the worst performance.Plenty for Roy Hodgson to discuss - he's just doing some post-game interviews before his press conference begins.
