Wilfried Zaha gave the Eagles a 12th minute lead following a ruthless counter attack, meaning he now has Premier League goals against Leicester than any other side (6).

Palace held on to their lead going into the break as Leicester failed to break Roy Hodgson’s men, but their resolve was broken five minutes after the interval.

Timothy Castagne scored his first goal on home soil fired high into the net after being teed up by Iheanacho.

And the Nigeria forward won the contest for Rodgers’ men with a brilliant finish from close range sparking pandemonium on the Leicester bench.
