After having been called out recently by manager Roy Hodgson, Christian Benteke broke out of a slump with a goal and an assist as Crystal Palace beat Leicester City handily, 0-3.
Easily Palace's finest result of the season to date and they did it against a Leicester side who had been red hot and they did it on the Foxes' ground. The Eagles opened the scoring in the 19th minute, when Andros Townsend sent a cross into the box and Benteke finished with a strong header. Twenty minutes later, Palace were on the counter and Benteke sent the ball through to a streaking Wilfried Zaha, with the latter slotting home. Any thoughts of a Leicester comeback was stamped out when they went down to ten men in the second half, but Bakary Sako managed to add another goal in the dying moments, curling a ball into the top corner after being teed up by Reuben-Loftus Cheek on yet another counter. After such a miserable start to their campaign, Palace have now gone seven unbeaten in league play. Sat, Dec 16, 2017 09:37:00 AM
