Who Was Man Of The Match? Crystal Palace 2-2 Leicester


Who was Man Of The Match?           Kelechi Iheanacho


The Foxes seem to be unable to bounce back yet again. Their negative trend still endures this weekend with six winless run, apart from League Cup fixture. In this clash against Crystal Palace, Brendan Rodgers’s men wasted the opportunity to snatch a win in Selhurst Park despite having two-goal lead at the first half. The Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho netted an opening goal in the 31st minute. His partner upfront, Jamie Vardy doubled their lead only six minute later. Leicester was quite confident they would go home with three points until Patrick Viera’s side made two crucial changes at the second half. The former Nice boss replaced Jordan Ayew and Conor Gallagher with Michael Olise and Jeffrey Schulpp respectively. These two substitutes eventually scored one goal each to salvage a point for Palace at their home turf.

The man of match was awarded to Kelechi Iheanacho as he registered an opener. The former Manchester City man has been The Foxes’s key figure upfront. He was also involved defensively, making two necessary tackles.

However, Iheanacho was not exactly the only one who did well in the game. There was also Winfred Zaha, Crystal Palace’s winger and Michael Olise who scored a lifeline and the Ghana international, Jeffery Schulpp, who found the equaliser.
