Always an uphill task - Hodgson

Roy Hodgson says his West Brom side "didn't challenge Manchester United as much as I would have liked" following their 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford, but praises his side's work ethic and determination.

Two goals from Wayne Rooney and the dismissal of Jonas Olsson for two bookable offences put paid to Hodgson's hopes of success, and he admits it was "always an uphill task".
