Thanks for joining me for this coverage of the 2-2 draw between Crystal Palace and Leicester City in the Premier League at Selhurst Park.
The teams share the points and subsequently the hosts move up a place to 14th while the visitors stay in 13th place. The Eagles face a tricky trip to Arsenal next time out and the Foxes host Manchester United as both teams look to move up the table.
It finishes 2-2 after a superb comeback from the Eagles. They went into the break facing a two goal deficit after defensive mistakes were punished by Iheanacho and then Vardy, but then a brilliant second half performance produced goals from Olise and Schlupp to tie the game up. Former Leicester man Schlupp very nearly completed the turnaround but couldn't quite get his header from a corner inside the post and the game finishes level.

76' Maddison tries to cleverly work a free-kick but the execution is poor and the hosts have a goal kick.

Y. Tielemans
Yellow Card
46' Tielemans goes in the book for a sliding tackle on McArthur.
46' The visitors get us back underway for the second half.
Vieira will surely have mixed emotions as we go into the break after watching his side dominate the game yet facing a two goal deficit. Visiting manager Rodgers will be delighted with the scoreline after a tricky start to the game, and his team started to look more confident as they neared half-time. Can the hosts get back into this game in the second period?
At the break it's 2-0 to the visitors who have been absolutely ruthless. They were under pressure for a lot of that half, but have taken advantage of mistakes from the hosts to give themselves a two goal advantage at the break. The first goal came from a howler by Andersen as he was dispossessed by Iheanacho, who calmly finished past Guaita. Vardy then scored a second six minutes later after some more poor defending.
45' There will be two minutes of additional time at the end of this first half.
43' The hosts have been the better side for large periods of this match but have been punished by their opponents for poor defending.
41' Gallagher fires over from the edge of the box as it fell to him. He should really hit the target, but the ball flies over.
39' The Foxes have won just one of their last five away league games against today's opponents, but look to be on their way to three points here after a tricky start.
H. Barnes
37' It was a perfectly weighted pass from Barnes to Vardy as Andersen slipped.
J. Vardy
37' It's 2-0! Tielemans dinks a ball to Barnes in midfield who runs forward and then plays it to the left for Vardy in the box, before the English striker duly finishes into the near post to double his side's advantage.
35' Mitchell floats a cross over from the left but Schmeichel comes and claims confidently.
33' Lookman intercepts a Guehi pass before driving forward towards the box. His shot though is tame and straight at Guaita.
K. Iheanacho
31' And it's 1-0 to the Foxes! Iheanacho pounces on a heavy touch by Andersen and bears down on goal before slotting it into the bottom left corner. That is a goal completely against the run of play, but the visitors will take it.
R. Bertrand
Yellow Card
29' Bertrand is booked for dragging down Ayew on the touchline.
27' Zaha drives forward and plays it to Ayew but his cross somehow evades everyone in the crowded box.
25' Ayew tries to find Mitchell with a backheel in the box but he gets it wrong and it'll be a goal-kick to the Foxes.
23' The visitors are really struggling with the press of their opponents, losing possession time and time again.
21' Mitchell tries to release Zaha down the left but the winger ends up fouling Castagne in his pursuit of the ball.

14' Tielemans thinks he is fouled as he strides towards the hosts' goal, but the referee gives nothing.

10' Wilfried Zaha could reach 50 Premier League goals today, becoming the first Crystal Palace player to reach that milestone.
8' Tielemans whips another teasing free-kick into the box but the Eagles clear.
6' Palace are trying to win the ball high up the pitch, although this time Edouard commits a foul on Choudhury and the visitors have a free-kick.
4' Iheanacho plays in Barnes down the left and tries to place a shot into the bottom corner but it's blocked.
3' Ward plays a low cross in but Edouard can't turn and get a shot away.
2' Tielemans sends a dangerous early free-kick over from the right and it's nodded behind for a corner, which comes to nothing.
1' The home side kick us off and we are underway.
The two sides make their way onto the pitch.
Visiting boss Brendan Rodgers makes three changes as Castagne, Choudhury and Iheanacho come in as he opts for a 4-4-2 formation.
