Palace fight back to draw with Leicester

"We fell to the long throw, which we talked about and was very disappointing", the Palace boss added.

"I have seen fouls given in oher games for what happened with Benteke goal, but there is nothing we can do about it now". Leicester: Kasper Schmeichel 6, Danny Simpson 5, Robert Huth 7, Yohan Benalouane 6, Christian Fuchs 7, Marc Albrighton 6, Andy King 6, Wilfred Ndidi 6, Riyad Mahrez 8, Jamie Vardy 8, Leonardo Ulloa 6.

While Leicester have spent a large chunk of their history in the second tier, the riches on offer in the Premier League today are greater than they have ever been.

Sam Allardyce says Crystal Palace's 2-2 draw against Leicester City feels like a win given how his side needed to fight back to claim a point in the Premier League encounter.

Unfortunately the hosts instantly responded after a shot from Schlupp took an terrible deflection off the outstretched leg of Simpson and straight into the path of Yohan Cabaye, who slotted it home from 10-yards to make it 2-1.

Warriors host Blazers with Durant's availability in question
What makes their loss in Game 1 so frustrating for the Trail Blazers is the fact that the team couldn't have played much better. That is a worrisome sign for a team will nearly certainly give Curry a contract worth more than $200 million this offseason.

The Palace manager was given further cause for concern just six minutes into this game when Leicester took the lead in a manner that infuriated Allardyce.

Crystal Palace (4-2-3-1): Hennessey; Ward, Kelly, Sakho, Schlupp (Van Aanholt 67); Cabaye, Milivojevic; Townsend, Puncheon, Zaha (McArthur 84); Benteke.

But Sam Allardyce faces a stiff challenge in resurgent champions Leicester, who will be out for revenge after suffering a controversial mid-week Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid.

And having narrowly escaped conceding a third from another long Fuchs throw, Palace levelled in the 70th minute after Benteke clambered all over Yohan Benalouane to head home from Townsend's cross. I've said that I'm not sure how many points we're going to need for survival.

On 53 minutes it was 2-0.

Bill O'Reilly, in a statement issued Wednesday, said: "It is tremendously disheartening we part ways due to unfounded claims". The network said in a statement the host would not return "after a thorough and careful review of the allegations".

"I don't think we have too many options if I am honest, so I think it is vitally important we stay competitive in that area". "We're in good form and we've got a lot of confidence".

Leicester go to Palace having lost their last two games - following six straight wins - with the Eagles having won five of their last six outings.

"Those are the basics, and that's why I continue to bombard the players to get the basics right".

Their ambitions are rather more modest 13 months on - domestically at least - but this draw against in-form opponents means they have virtually secured their place in the Premier League for the 2017/18 campaign.

- Christian Benteke has scored 21 Premier League headed goals since his top-flight debut in September 2012; only Olivier Giroud (24) has scored more.
