Leicester City played out an entertaining 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace which saw the home side coming from two goals down to hold the champions to a draw at Selhurst Park.

The champions went into an early lead thanks to a Robert Huth header from a throw in, and they doubled their efforts minutes into the second half courtesy of a goal from Jamie Vardy, who curled home a sweet left foot effort into the net inside the box of Crystal Palace.

Palace started a late rally to gain something from the game after Cabaye pulled a goal back for them , minutes after Vardy’s goal to bring scores to 2-1. A score line which was leveled by Christian Benteke who evaded his marker Wilfred Ndidi.

Ndidi did a good job on the big Belgium striker especially in aerial duels but was no where near the former Liverpool striker when headed home the equalizer for the Eagles.
