His Crystal Palace team inflicted a second defeat of the season on Manchester City to leave Pep Guardiola and his defending champions four points behind Liverpool in the Premier League table.
Hodgson spent six months in charge of Liverpool between 2010 and 2011 and the mention of his name at Anfield was enough to send shivers down the spines of most fans.
But it appears all has been forgiven now following Palace’s 3-2 win.
The win also featured one of the goals of the season when Andros Townsend smashed home a volley from 30 yards in what was the biggest shock of the season so far, as Palace ended City’s 100 per cent home record.
It was their first win at City for exactly 28 years.
