Roy Hodgson has told the press that he does not consider his squad to be of the same standard to the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United or Arsenal.

Having had a few weeks to assess the quality of the players he has inherited from Rafael Benitez, the former Fulham boss has said he does not believe they are ready to challenge – yet.

“After seven training sessions with what I regard as the key players it is pretty obvious to all we are a long, long way from being a team like United, Arsenal or Chelsea who have been working under the same coach for at least a year,” he said.

“I don’t even pretend the team after six or seven training sessions are going to be anything like the team we want to be,”

“It would be ridiculous to suggest we can be at the top of our game now in terms of how I want the team to play.”
