Christian Benteke finds redemption as Eagles soar in Leicester

Leicester City 0 Crystal Palace 3: Benteke, Eagles end drought

But the Belgium worldwide was key to Palace's stunning victory at the King Power Stadium, heading Hodgson's men in front before providing the assist for Wilfried Zaha to score the second. "We need to come back with a strong spirit", he added.

It was Palace's first away goal of the season and they went on to win 3-0 - Benteke creating the second for Wilfried Zaha - to move out of the bottom three.

Wilfried Zaha, whose form has helped Palace climb out of trouble, scored a silky second and Bakary Sako was also on target in stoppage time at the King Power Stadium.

Vicente Iborra had a goal disallowed for the hosts, who had previously won four straight games, as they missed the chance to move within two points of the top five.

Two minutes after the hour mark, the Foxes' fightback was handed a major blow as Ndidi was shown a second yellow card for a dive, thus, leading to his dismissal on his 21st birthday.

Kasper Schmeichel also saved smartly from Ruben Loftus-Cheek during Palace's bright start. The Belgium striker headed in Andros Townsend's cross in the 19th minute to score his first goal since the penultimate game of last season in May.

Conceding at least woke the Foxes up and Benteke nearly gifted them an immediate equaliser, heading inches wide of his own goal.

Osweiler leads Broncos past Colts, losers of five straight
But the Broncos scored the final 18 points. "Pleased how we started the game, obviously". "He's a volume back. You can see what he can do, he can run through tackles". "It's simply being in one-score games".

It was a deserved half-time lead and one which Palace looked to build on - but Benteke miscued a header from Townsend's second-half cross.

The Belgium worldwide opened the scoring midway through the first-half with a powerful header into the floor which had too much pace on it for Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel after being left unmarked inside the area.

"A lot of things were missing today, it was not a good day for us", he said.

Leicester manager Claude Puel conceded that his side did not deserve a result in their 0-3 loss against Crystal Palace as the Eagles played with more desire and quality.

'We know he's a quality player.

I didn't see a replay, but I think it was too little fall, maybe and it is harsh to lose a player like Ndidi because he is a crucial, valuable player.
