A game that Leicester dominated for the most part, but once again the failure in finishing chances and defensive slip-ups threw the game away. A familiar tale.

Palace’s opener came against the run of play. Leicester were dominating the game when James McArthur picked up the ball and fired a shot from over thirty yards out which took a big deflection off of forward Michy Batshuayi and left Schmeichel helpless.

Leicester will have felt unlucky to be behind at the half, the visitors barely had a sniff of goal in the opening forty-five minutes. Once again the Foxes were failing to capitalise on their chances and paying for it.

The second half started with the same theme, but this time Leicester finally found their way to goal. Barnes scuffed shot falls to Jonny Evans near the penalty spot to smash into the top corner.

The game wasn’t level for long, poor marking from the Leicester defence left Zaha free to finish off a McArthur cross to put Palace 2-1 up, and it didn’t get much better from there.

Evans brings down former Fox Jeffery Schlupp in the box and the ref points to the spot. Milivojevic sends the keeper the wrong way to make it 3-1.

If you thought that was the end of the misery for Leicester you’d be wrong. Zaha got his second to make it 4-1, running into open space after the home side left everyone up the field and powering a shot past Schmeichel.

Boos rained down from the stands at the King Power at the final whistle. A fourth home league loss in a row and any hope of European qualification fading into the distance. Puel’s seat will be getting even hotter.
