Iheanacho and Ndidi could not do enough to help Leicester secure any point against Crystal Palace as they battle to avoid relegation.

Crystal Palace started Roy Hodgson’s second stint as manager on a positive note by defeating Leicester City.

Initially, they played offensively against their opponents, who are also battling relegation.

However, their game plan fell apart when Wilfried Zaha suffered a possible thigh injury and was emotional when leaving the field before halftime.

Leicester managed to score first in the second half with Ricardo Pereira’s powerful shot, which goalkeeper Vicente Guaita couldn’t stop.

But Hodgson’s team soon received a boost when Eberechi Eze’s free-kick hit the crossbar and went in after hitting Foxes’ goalkeeper Daniel Iversen.

In the 95th minute, Jean-Philippe Mateta secured the win with a close-range goal.
