Crystal Palace produce five-star performance in quest to avoid Relegation
Crystal Palace played on Saturday against Leicester City in their attempt to avoid relegation to the Championship and produced a wonderful performance against a Leicester, although they had nothing to play for.
The opening goal came from Wilfred Zaha in 16 minutes, and it wasn’t long before their second goal by James McArthur made in 36 minutes making it even more difficult for Leicester to get back into the game.
Palace killed the game in the second half with further goals from Loftus-Cheek, Van Aanholt and Christian Benteke made a penalty shot towards the end of the game, which was only his 3rd goal of the season.
Leicester manager Claude Puel, after getting off to a good start, had a bad patch recently with his team as they had not won a single League game in a month.
Crystal Palace on the other hand move up to 11th place in the Premier League and will surely play Premier League football next season.
Crystal Palace play Stoke City away from home (another team in serious relegation trouble) next, in their continued attempt to avoid relegation to the Championship and win. Which will almost guarantee them playing in the Premier League next season.
