Palace recovers to hold Leicester 2-2 and boost survival bid

The game kicks off at 1500 BST at Selhurst Park and is part of the latest round of the £250,000 Super 6 game!

Craig Shakespeare has named Super Eagles star, Windfred Ndidi among his starting XI to confront Crystal Palace in the relegation battle.

Shakespeare, appointed manager when Ranieri was controversially dismissed two months ago, has now lost only one of his seven league games in charge. Nampalys Mendy has an ankle injury. Subs: Van Aanholt 5, McArthur 6. With only former Leicester man Jeff Schlupp to beat, Vardy calmly cut inside and slotted it home superbly on his weaker foot to make it 2-0.

"If he is good enough, he will be in Bury's first-team long before he would have been in United's".

Palace's best chance of the half came courtesy of Christian Benteke, who was able to outmuscle Danny Simpson to get on the end of a Joel Ward cross and force a save from Kasper Schmeichel, only for the ball to loop up and almost creep into the Leicester goal, coming off the post before eventually being cleared. Substitutes: Danny Drinkwater (for King, 64) 5, Demarai Gray (for Mahrez, 75) 5, Ben Chilwell (for Benalouane, 76) 6.

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.

The goal of the auction - years in the making, and playing out for more than 12 months - was to free up spectrum for wireless use. And US Cellular picked up 188 licenses for $328 million, though they're likely to be located in rural areas, thus the lower cost.

Their threat on the counter-attack, another of last season's fortes, was also still intact.

Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare says he is not surprised by Crystal Palace's revival under Sam Allardyce.

Palace have won five of their last six matches, recording famous victories over London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal.

Townsend again supplied the cross and Benteke headed past Kasper Schmeichel for his 12th league goal of the season but the Belgian did appear to be climbing over Yohan Benalouane as he did.

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

Huth denied Andros Townsend just before the interval as Palace leapt through the gears.

Sam Allardyce has been imploring his players to "respect the point" ever since taking the reins at Crystal Palace back in December, and on this evidence his players are taking note.

"At the moment that has paid off for us".

"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".

"It's a tight turnaround but one that we're more than capable of".

"That can really only be determined now in the summer, whether he signs a new contract or not".
