However Palace grabbed a goal back within two minutes through Yohan Cabaye and the comeback was complete 16 minutes later when Christian Benteke climbed above Yohan Benalouane, legally in the eyes of the officials, to head in Andros Townsend's cross.

Leicester (from): Schmeichel, Hamer, Zieler, Simpson, Huth, Benalouane, Wasilewski, Fuchs, Chilwell, King, Amartey, Drinkwater, Ndidi, Gray, Mahrez, Albrighton, Kapustka, Musa, Okazaki, Vardy, Ulloa, Slimani.

"But only Spurs can better the 15 points both teams have taken from the last 18 available and Sam Allardyce believes one more win would "probably be enough" to secure Palace's safety. You could see [against Arsenal] on Monday their confidence".

"It's a big ask for him (Morgan) because it's a hard injury to get over, in terms of the power and spring for a centre-back".

The Ghana global, who came through the youth ranks as a striker at City, grew frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities at City and was sold to Palace for £12.5million during the January transfer window and has established himself in a resurgent Palace side under Sam Allardyce.

Leicester's next league match is against Arsenal on April 26.

After winning their first six matches under Craig Shakespeare across all competitions, Leicester suffered their first two defeats under their new management in the past week, 4-2 at Goodison Park on Sunday and 1-0 away to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday in the Champions League. In the same period, Crystal Palace have scored just one more headed goal in the league (17). None of us are safe.

Physically and mentally we are very strong, and the mental side showed by coming back today to get back to 2-2.

"They are incredible at times when they are on your side and hopefully we can keep them on side for the rest of the season".

"I haven't seen the players this morning but I need to assess them all". He's never been relegated from the Premier League.

Crystal Palace are Sky Bet's 5/6 favourites for the victory with Leicester 100/30 outsiders while the draw is priced at 5/2.

The BBC reported that Leicester signed the 20-year-old for approximately £15 million from Belgian club Genk in the summer.
