Striker scores as Eagles come from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Leicester City

Crystal Palace 2-2 Leicester

Christian Benteke’s header earned Crystal Palace a valuable 2-2 draw with Leicester City at Selhurst Park.

Robert Huth put Leicester ahead after just six minutes, heading in Christian Fuchs’ long throw.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy then netted a second seven minutes after half-time from a breakaway, but Yohan Cabaye fired for Palace two minutes later.

It was left to Benteke to nod in Andros Townsend's cross at the far post to claim a point for Palace.

That moved them above AFC Bournemouth into 15th on 35 points, seven off the bottom three. Leicester are 12th on 37 points.
