Palace fight back to force 2-2 draw with Leicester

Danny Drinkwater was the only regular who found himself sitting on the bench, although Leonardo Ulloa was preferred as the striking partner to Jamie Vardy rather than Shinji Okazaki. That, though, was were the similarities ended for the home side during the first half. 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.

But they often ran into quality blocking by Mamadou Sakho, whose loan from Liverpool has been such a success.

After winning just one of their first six Premier League games against Crystal Palace (D1 L4), Leicester have since won the last three in a row.

It was a bitter defeat for the English champions as the spot-kick was awarded for a Marc Albrighton tackle on Griezmann that took place outside the penalty area.

Whether Wes Morgan will have recovered from the back problems that have sidelined him remains uncertain, although the Leicester captain trained on Friday. 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.

"It looked better yesterday", said Shakespeare, speaking after the match.

Then, after working his way into the box, the Leicester striker cut inside and placed a left-footed shot wide of Hennessey that the keeper could only parry into the net.

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

It was at that moment where the game burst into life as Yohan Cabaye pulled one back nearly immediately, which rallied the home fams to push their team for an equaliser.

Leicester midfielder Andy King played 45 minutes in Madrid, but the long-serving midfielder is one of the understudies who could be handed a start against Palace and he is determined to concentrate on the task at hand on the domestic front.

"It's a great point for us", he said.

"When you finish a game with a point having been 2-0 down, you have to be incredibly satisfied", said Allardyce, 62. Another game gone and it is precious because it keeps our run going.

It was always going to be a odd one if Newcastle were promoted and then went back for Andros Townsend - if in the meantime he'd done well for Palace then there would be no way they'd sell him and/or other clubs would then be interested, so only if he continued to be rubbish and show poor attitude would Newcastle arguably have been able to land him.
