Crystal Palace 5-0 Leicester City: Eagles chew up 10-man Foxes

Crystal Palace 5-0 Leicester City: Eagles chew up 10-man Foxes

The 25-year-old, who has scored eight goals and assisted three times this season for Palace, is under contract until 2022.

The 25-year-old has endured a hard week after being booked for diving during last weekend's 0-0 draw with Watford, but will make headlines now for the right reasons after a dazzling display. Now, we play in the top half of the table.

Hamer had been forced into another save by Zaha when, in the 38th minute, the hosts capitalised on their superiority by doubling their advantage.

Marc Albrighton took drastic action to prevent Zaha netting a third shortly after the restart, hauling him down when clean through on goal, resulting in a red card on a miserable afternoon for Claude Puel's side.

Further goals from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Patrick van Aanholt and substitute Christian Benteke sealed a comprehensive victory for Roy Hodgson's team.

Palace were nearly ahead when Ben Hamer misdirected his punch to James Tomkins whose header was swept off the line by Wilfred Ndidi.

The Eagles returned the goal line clearance pain with Stephen Ward blocking Jamie Vardy's bid to stay hot. Mamadou Sakho played in Loftus-Cheek, who rounded Hamer and tucked it into an empty net.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has insisted Wilfried Zaha's integrity can not be questioned and said players with his ability are "worth their weight in gold". Zaha returned the favour to McArthur when he found the Scot with a low cross and he scored with a clever swivel and shot low into the bottom-right corner.

"I have no doubts in my own mind about him as a player and his honesty and desire to score goals and play the game properly", said Hodgson, whose men face Leicester tomorrow.

The match at the Selhurst Park was Schlupp's first in a month.

"It's been frustrating [to be on the bench] because it's the first time that's happened to me".

Palace were on song throughout the game against their abject opponents but the star man has to be Wilfried Zaha.
