Who is taking charge of Crystal Palace tonight? Duo to step in for Roy Hodgson with Oliver Glasner expected at Goodison Park

Crystal Palace will be without manager Roy Hodgson for their crunch trip to Everton with his assistants set to take over dugout duties.

Hodgson has been recovering over the weekend after falling ill at the club’s training ground and being taken to hospital on Thursday.

Palace are yet to issue an update on the 76-year-old’s health since confirming he was ‘stable and undergoing tests’.

Prior to his illness, talkSPORT understands the Eagles had agreed a deal for Oliver Glasner to replace Hodgson in south London.

Eintracht Frankfurt boss Glasner was spotted at upcoming Palace opponent Tottenham’s 2-1 Premier League loss to Wolves on Saturday – but it is yet to be confirmed when he will take charge.

The 2022 Europa League-winning manager’s services could be announced after tonight’s game, but until then, Palace will need interim help to cope with Hodgson’s absence.
