The future of Crystal Palace head coach Ian Holloway is in grave doubt after the Eagles were thrashed 4-1 by London rivals Fulham at Selhurst Park on Monday night, according to reports in the Guardian.

The loss was the home side’s seventh in eight Premier League matches so far since the start of the season and leaves Holloway’s men just one place off the foot of the table, with the daunting prospect of facing a trip from league leaders Arsenal on Saturday.

However, after the full-time whistle Holloway refused to discuss his future in south-east London, only confirming that he had spoken with co-chairman Steve Parish, although he was unwilling to give any further details on the nature of that discussion.

“We talk all the time and I’ll be speaking to him tomorrow morning,” said Holloway in his post-match press conference. “It’s about what’s right for the football club and that’s what it will always be about for me and Steve.

“I’m not talking about my future at this football club. Me and the chairman signed all these players together in the summer and he always comes down after a game to have a chat. It was just a bit longer this time because I spent longer with the players trying to pick them up.”
