English Premier League

Crystal Palace 2 – 2 Leicester City

Crystal Palace threw a 2 nill win lead to draw 2-all with Leicester City. Leicester threw away a two-goal lead as Crystal Palace came from behind to draw with the Foxes at Selhurst Park.

After going into the break 2-0 down, teenage substitute Michael Olise pulled a goal back for Palace with a brilliant volley past Kasper Schmeichel.

Former Leicester player Jeffrey Schlupp added a second just 48 seconds after his introduction, heading past Schmeichel with only his second touch.

Brendan Rodgers’ side opened the scoring against the run of play when Kelechi Iheanacho capitalised on a mistake from Joachim Andersen before slotting past Vicente Guaita on 31 minutes.

Jamie Vardy added a second six minutes later with a cool finish from Harvey Barnes’ assist. The Eagles move to within a point of the Foxes and remain unbeaten at Selhurst Park under manager Patrick Vieira, while Leicester are now winless in four Premier League games.
