Crystal Palace vs Leicester LIVE: Result and reaction from Premier League fixture today


Milivojević hammers home to defeat Leicester

Leicester avoided defeat on Boxing Day against Manchester United to remain above them in the table, but the failure to win allowed Everton to move ahead of the Foxes into second place to make it a Merseyside one-two at the top of the table. However, a draw today would be enough for Leicester to take back second place, but Brendan Rodgers’s side will be targeting much more than that on their journey to south London. They’re poised to welcome back fit-again defender Caglar Soyuncu to aid that quest, though Ricardo Pereira remains injured.

Palace need something of a change in fortunes after following the 7-0 humbling by Liverpool with a comprehensive 3-0 defeat against Aston Villa on Saturday, despite their opponents being reduced to 10 men early on. With the pressure on Roy Hodgson to turn their slide down the table around, Palace could close the gap to the top half of the table with a home victory and changes are expected among the Eagles, although Gary Cahill remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

88’: Just a reminder of what Palace can do on the counter, and it nearly seemed as if they were through on goal, but Benteke lost momentum.

83’: GOAL! Fantastic strike from Barnes to equalise for the away side.

Barnes receives the ball with his back to goal, he runs to the edge of the Palace penalty box, and arrows a superb left-footed shot into the bottom corner.

We’re all set now for a big 10 minutes.
