BBC Sport's Phil McNulty has been answering your questions on all things Premier League.

Gary asked: If Roy leaves Crystal Palace who do you bring in to replace him? Which managers deserve a shot with Palace?

Phil answered: I think you are looking at the names that have been mentioned, such as Steve Cooper or Julen Lopetegui. The only question is whether they will take the job before the end of the season should Roy go, or if they would prefer to wait until the summer.

Paddy McCarthy, who is a member of Hodgson’s management team, is highly regarded and has been touted as a future Palace manager, but is the time right?

Obviously, this all hinges on how it pans out for Hodgson.
