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!

Five successive league victories - a run that was brought to an end at Everton last Sunday - may have eased concerns Leicester might get drawn into the bottom three but Shakespeare's team selection suggested the manager would not allow a meeting with a team sat two points below the current champions to be overshadowed by Tuesday's tie. Nampalys Mendy has an ankle injury. Substitutes: Patrick van Aanholt (for Schlupp, 69) 5, James McArthur (for Zaha, 84) 5.

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.

Benteke almost put Palace ahead minutes later after his low effort was saved by Schmeichel at his near post following another Townsend cross.

Leicester City: Schmeichel 7, Simpson 5, Benalouane 6, Huth 8, Fuchs 6, Mahrez 5, Ndidi 6, King 5, Albrighton 6, Ulloa 5, Vardy 6.

Our David John writes.

Leicester 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. "It was a negotiation on the final day of the transfer window - it was just about getting it done, getting the loan deal done, not haggling about other things other than just making sure we get him here".

"Teams on 35 points now, you would assume that they are going to be safe now".

Bradley claims that de Abreu bumped into Hernandez, spilling some of his drink on him without an apology. Bradley is serving a five-year prison term in CT for firing shots at a Hartford nightclub in 2014.

The Foxes have themselves risen dramatically up the table with Craig Shakespeare guiding them to six straight wins in all competitions. "They turned Sevilla over".

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

Game on at Selhurst Park!

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.

Crystal Palace and Leicester will look to move further away from the Premier League relegation zone when they go head to head on Saturday (today).

Sam Allardyce has been imploring his players to "respect the point" since taking the reins at Crystal Palace back in December, and yesterday's 2-2 draw was evidence his players are taking note. Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend had yet to be born when this occurred.

Crystal Palace salvaged a point after coming back from two goals down against the champions to keep their Premier League survival bid on track.

Allardyce has attributed his side's recent run of results to much improved defensive displays but would not have been happy when Palace fell behind to a routine long-throw routine after just six minutes.
