Crystal Palace have extended their unbeaten home run this season as Patrick Vieira’s side battled back to secure a 2-2 draw with Leicester.

Crystal Palace found themselves right up against at the break but thanks to a stirring second half turnaround Vieira’s head off on positive note in the international break following their draw against Leicester.

Palace did carry the greater threat early on, with Kasper Schmeichel on alert to keep out Wilf Zaha, but it was also the hosts who gifted Leicester the breakthrough.

Joachim Anderson dawdled on the ball and Kelechi Iheanacho pounced to race on and tuck home a sucker punch finish past Vicente Guaita.

And that goal opened the floodgates for Leicester as Jamie Vardy poked them 2-0 in front.

Harvey Barnes led the Foxes charge from deep and old reliable Vardy was on hand to steer home his pass.

But despite finding themselves facing an uphill fight after the break, Palace did respond, with Odsonne Edouard bulleting one against the crossbar.

And with Palace looking to step it up in the final half hour, Vieira’s side hauled themselves back into it as Michael Olise lashed home Tyrick Mitchell’s cross.

Olise’s introduction proved to be a catalyst for Palace late on as his cross was fumbled to by the Foxes backline to allow Jeff Schlupp the chance to bury an equaliser.
