Leicester draw like a win for Palace - Allardyce

Pep Guardiola is supposedly keen on adding five new players to his squad in the summer

A chance of a fourth consecutive home victory may have been passed up against Leicester City, but the point salvaged by the home side from two goals down has edged the locals closer to safety as those below continue to stumble.

Allardyce called last Monday's 3-0 win over Arsenal one of the best of his managerial career.

But Yohan Cabaye kick-started the home side's comeback with his second goal in two games before Benteke salvaged the point that moved Sam Allardyce's side seven points clear of the bottom three.

Craig Shakespeare is hopeful talismanic defender Wes Morgan will be fit to return for Leicester City's Champions League quarterfinal second leg against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Mandanda, Speroni, Ward, Kelly, Delaney, Sakho, Fryers, McArthur, Milivojevic, Ledley, Cabaye, Puncheon, Townsend, Kaikai, Zaha, Sako, Schlupp, Van Aanholt, Lee, C Benteke.

In the end, though, we broke it down to come storming back from 2-0 down and I couldn't have seen that in this team when I first got here. If that doesn't fancy your gambling interests, the both teams not to score is also a good bet since I don't think Palace will concede with the defence they have at the moment.

"We fell to the long throw, which we talked about and was very disappointing", the Palace boss added.

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Benalouane (Chilwell, min. 76), Huth, Fuchs; Mahrez (Gray, min. 75), Ndidi, King (Drinkwater, min. 64), Albrighton; Ulloa, Vardy.

"I'm pleased with Benteke, with his game coming on and the goals coming back".

City have not lost a top-flight game after scoring first this season, which did not bode well for Palace's chances of forcing a recovery thereafter.

But others around him were not so confident and twice allowed Palace a route back into the game.

With that in mind, here are three first team players who look surplus to requirements at Selhurst Park and would be worth getting off the wage bill.

"We practiced it on the pitch yesterday with the players in the positions", he said. He's never been relegated from the Premier League.

"Having seen him at very close quarters, he is diligent about the opposition, so it's no surprise to me", he said. Christian Benteke heads the first goalscorer betting at 9/2 with Jamie Vardy considered the visitors' main threat at 13/2 to net first, while the strike duo are 7/1 to both find the net.

It is understood that Mauricio Pochettino is a long-term admirer of the winger and Spurs feel they can finally get their man after seeing a £12million bid rejected last summer.
