Before the vital Everton match, Sean Dyche shares a text message from Roy Hodgson.

Sean Dyche reached out with a personal message of support to Roy Hodgson after the Crystal Palace manager fell ill at the club’s training ground this week.

Hodgson was hospitalized on Thursday, and although his condition is reported to be

stable, it’s still uncertain who will take charge of Palace when they play against Everton at Goodison Park on Monday.

Ahead of the upcoming match, Dyche confirmed that he had contacted Hodgson to convey his best wishes and had also been in touch with Hodgson’s assistant, Ray Lewington.

Dyche and Hodgson share a friendship that has been evident during the three encounters between their teams this season.

In a pre-match press conference, Dyche expressed his well wishes, saying, “I certainly wish him well. I sent a message and briefly spoke to Ray Lewington… we wish him well and we want that before anything.” Dyche emphasized that Hodgson’s health is paramount and transcends the importance of the game.

Despite Palace’s recent struggles and uncertainties surrounding their managerial situation,

Dyche doesn’t believe it will necessarily provide Everton with an advantage.

He highlighted the importance of maintaining the right mentality within his own team

and focusing on their own performance.

Reflecting on the previous encounters between the two sides this season, Dyche acknowledged the changing dynamics but maintained that each game remains important.

He emphasized the need for his team to be competitive and ready for the challenge,

regardless of the external factors.
