Crystal Palace close on survival after comeback earns draw

Craig Shakespeare will make a call on who should replace defender Robert Huth

Craig Shakespeare will make a call on who should replace defender Robert Huth

Having eased ahead, Leicester appeared satisfied to sit back and contain a home side that struggled to create meaningful chances despite dominating possession.

Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare was No.2 to Allardyce during his short England reign and threatened to leave the Crystal Palace boss red-faced yesterday.

Allardyce remains without the injured Scott Dann, Pape Souare, James Tomkins, Fraizer Campbell and Connor Wickham, but Loic Remy is closer to a first-team return. Subs: Van Aanholt 5, McArthur 6. Leicester: Kasper Schmeichel 6, Danny Simpson 5, Robert Huth 7, Yohan Benalouane 6, Christian Fuchs 7, Marc Albrighton 6, Andy King 6, Wilfred Ndidi 6, Riyad Mahrez 8, Jamie Vardy 8, Leonardo Ulloa 6.

Our David John writes. Leading through goals from Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy, they allowed Crystal Palace to recover, displaying defensive frailties that must be eradicated if they are to succeed in progressing against the La Liga side. But they had to wait until the final moments of the first half before another clear opening came their way when Andros Townsend was released into the area by Ward. On Wednesday [against Atletico Madrid] they were tactically brilliant.

It was the first goal Palace have conceded in their last three home games and they quickly hit back. "They turned Sevilla over". An early set-piece goal and a trademark Jamie Vardy strike had conjured the sharpest of flashbacks to last season's title-winning success, and seemed to have laid the ideal platform for this week's visit of Atletico Madrid.

Crystal Palace have alternated between victory and defeat in their four home Premier League games against Leicester, keeping a clean sheet in each win and failing to score in each defeat.

Crystal Palace have won five of their last six Premier League matches (L1).

Christian Benteke's goal rescued a point for Crystal Palace at Leicester - but did he foul Yohan Benalouane? Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend had yet to be born when this occurred.

United CEO vows to reform policy on flight removals, overbooking
United CEO Oscar Munoz has apologized for the incident and vowed Wednesday that it will never happen again. By Tuesday, Munoz issued his most contrite apology yet, describing the incident as "truly horrific".

The Belgian striker now has 12 Premier League goals for the campaign and 14 in total.

Islam Slimani has scored 35 league goals since the start of 2015-16, 16 of which have been from headers (46%).

- Christian Benteke has scored 21 Premier League headed goals since his top-flight debut in September 2012; only Olivier Giroud (24) has scored more. "Psychologically the players are in a far better place now than when I first arrived".

"We are not safe and can't talk about Mama Sakho being a permanent deal here because we're still not safe and our position in the Premier League is not safe".

Palace talisman Zaha found it hard to get into the game at first, with Leicester crowding him out.

"That can really only be determined now in the summer, whether he signs a new contract or not". "But we'll give him every opportunity and, with the medical staff, we'll make a decision".

"I'm assured it was just cramp", said the manager. He won't feature against Palace. I've looked at the equaliser and I've seen free-kicks given. "We only had a light training session on Thursday for the players who played and a full session for those who didn't".

52' - GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-2 Leicester City (Vardy).
