Leicester City held to a 0-0 Premier League draw at Wolves

Neither side were able to force a breakthrough at Molineux but it will be Brendan Rodgers as the more frustrated boss as the Foxes wasted some excellent chances.

Both teams carved out half chances in a busy opening with Leander Dendoncker heading over and Kelechi Iheanacho firing wide.

But it was Leicester who created the clearest chance before the break as Iheanacho fed James Maddison inside the box, but the England international thrashed his effort straight at Rui Patricio.

The visitors continued to boss possession after the break, but despite the introduction of Jamie Vardy, they could not find a way through.

The former England star did almost nick it for Rodgers in added time as he got on the end of Marc Albrighton’s cross into the box, but that little bit of rustiness saw flick wide of Patricio’s post.

Premier League: Crystal Palace 1-1 Leicester City

With the two sides in action on Boxing Day, a total of 12 changes were made by both managers at Selhurst Park, with James Maddison a notable absentee from the Foxes squad and Jamie Vardy on the bench.

Palace dropped five of the players involved in the 3-0 loss at Aston Villa, three of them defenders.

James Tomkins, who had not started for Palace since February due to a thigh injury, was slow to react when Luke Thomas raced into the area and he brought the defender down.

Referee Graham Scott pointed to the spot but Guaita was the hero for the hosts with a strong right hand thwarting Iheanacho from 12 yards.

The hosts came out with better intent for the second period and further good work by Schlupp against his former club created an opening for Zaha, who fired over from 20 yards.

Palace opened the scoring in the 58th minute.

Zaha was fouled but managed to find Townsend in space on the right and picked himself up to get into the area in time to be found by his team-mate.

The Palace attacker showed excellent technique to volley past Kasper Schmeichel for his eighth goal of the season – doubling his 2019/20 tally only 16 league games into this campaign.

Eventually, Leicester found an equaliser through one of the four players to start against United two days earlier.

Barnes created a yard of space outside the area and drilled into the bottom corner – but no winner was forthcoming and the visitors had to settle for a point, although they do move up to second.

Brighton to sign Polish pair

Premier League clubs have until 11pm on Monday 5th October to complete any moves for overseas players, however there will still be the option to trade players domestically until October 16th.

Graham Potter is thought to be close to the capture of Lech Poznan midfielder Jakub Moder and Legia Warsaw utility man Michal Karbownik, with the Polish duo said to be prospects for the future.

Brighton newspaper The Argus suggest that the Seagulls will immediately loan the pair back to their current clubs.

Albion have been praised in recent times for their ability to unearth up and coming talents, with several players picked up by the club for reasonable fees going on to feature prominently for the first team.

Leicester City 0-2 Manchester United: Top 4 spot secured for United

This game was billed as a Top Four play-off with the Foxes needing to win, and United only needing a draw ahead of kick off.

But with Chelsea winning at home to Wolves to secure their place, the second half pressure was too much for the hosts as they slip down into the Europa League spots.

Both sides showed plenty of nerves in the opening stages, with Kelechi Iheanacho’s pot shot the closest either came to a goal.

Marcus Rashford carved out United’s best chance of the first half, but Kasper Schmeichel as he palmed away his long range strike.

With updates from Stamford Bridge beginning to filter through after the break, Leicester looked to push on, as Jamie Vardy was inches away from scoring.

The former England man got the better of Harry Maguire in the air, but with David De Gea glued to the floor, his header came back off the bar.

But despite having the better chances, Leicester were to shoot themselves in the foot with 20 minutes to go.

Jonny Evans rashly fouled Anthony Martial inside the box, and Fernandes showed off his trademark hop skip and goal technique from the spot.

That goal broke Leicester hearts, and the expected onslaught never really arrived, as Evans late red card completed a miserable end to the season.
