After another 72 days in charge of Crystal Palace, Hodgson will become the oldest man to take the reins of a team in the Premier League when he will surpass Sir Bobby Robson’s record of 71 years and 191 days at Newcastle.

For now, 71-year-old Hodgson, remains the only English Premier League boss to have taken on any of the really big jobs – with England, twice at Inter Milan, at Anfield and at Blackburn when they were big-time in the late Nineties.

Roy Hodgson and Manuel Pellegrini will take a combined total of 72 years of managerial experience into the dug-outs at the London Stadium on Saturday.

But the blunt truth is that it will be some time yet before they are ready to plant the English flag back in a top six dug-out.

It was a change-over which sparked little speculation suggesting that the job might go to those English and British managers who are usually called in to steady sinking ships.

At the same time, their younger counterparts Eddie Howe (above, left) of Bournemouth, Sean Dyche of Burnley and Brighton’s Chris Hughton comprise three of the four longest-serving bosses in the Premier League.

At 65, his methods are just beginning to embed themselves at West Ham and they will be seeking their third straight win this weekend.
