  1. It all fell for us today...

    Leicester 0-3 Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson tells Sky Sports: "Before the game I was asked about our away form, and I think I said the last performances in particular we've looked very dangerous and just haven't quite taken all of our chances. But today it all fell for us, we were solid defensvely and the two forwards did very well up top. I'm delighted with the result, but I'm not that surprised by it either, because we've been playing very well for a while now.

    What will Benteke's goal do for his confidence? "I think it will do a lot for Christian Benteke's confidence, and the crowd really got behind him today, they appreciated his work rate too, and that was fully deserved.

    Was your players' work rate key today? "They were all excellent. I wouldn't criticise any aspect of our performance today, and that's our third clean sheet in a row away from home. We've moved away from that situation we were in after seven games - we were in a bleak situation - but since then we've shown we can get points and we've re-established some parity with the rest of the teams around us."

  2. We have to do better

    Leicester City

    Leicester City skipper Wes Morgan tells Sky Sports: "It wasn't good enough today. We've come into the game expecting to day as well as we have in the past few games, the two early goals took us a bit by surprise to be honest, so we'll go back and look at them, and see what we could have done better."

    On Leicester's disallowed goal: "I didn't have a good view of it to be honest - the referee obviously felt there was a push."

    On fixture congestion: "Everyone's playing the same [amount of games], so there's no excuses about tiredness, we just have to do better next time."

    Rob Brown: Leicester deserved to lose today, little quality and some pretty unnecessary tackles/cheating. Palace came to play good football, it's what the league needs - not many teams actually visit a team to come and win!

  4. We did not deserve anything

    Leicester 0-3 Crystal Palace

    Leicester City

    Leicester manager Claude Puel tells Sky Sports: "A lot of things were missing today, it was not a good day for us. From kick-off, we did not have good intensity and could not find a solution. Our play was too slow against a good team with a strong defensive unit and we needed more quickness and quality in the play. Today it was not possible, was it tiredness or something else?

    "The red card prevented us to try and come back in the game. Without Wilfred Ndidi, it was difficult to recover the ball and put Crystal Palace under pressure. I did not see the two incidents but he did not make too many faults in the game and was sent off. It was not our day and not a good game for us. Palace deserve the result, they played with desire, togetherness and quality. We did not deserve a win.

    "It was not a good start and then we knew we have to play a lot of games and we have a short space of time to recover, it is the same for other teams. We need to come back with a strong spirit."

    Jay Barnes: This is quite a stunning recovery by Palace. I wouldn't be surprised to see Liverpool coming in for Benteke and Manchester United swooping in for Zaha.

  6. Deserved

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke tells Sky Sports: "It's a great result this afternoon, I think we deserved those three points. We worked really hard to win the midfield battle today, and I'm really pleased to score.

    On getting his goal: "I've been really patient and I've been through a hard time, but I'm a big believer, worked hard and I've got what I deserved today. I will not give up, I will keep going."

  7. Only a matter of time...

    Leicester 0-3 Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha tells Sky Sports: "The team is buzzing, we played so well today and we took our chances. I am happy for the squad.

    "Teams just think because Christian Benteke just wins headers, we can actually both play. We got our chances, we took them.

    "The second goal was the main thing, we carried on playing and when i got the chance, I was buzzing to score.

    "I have always had confidence in the team and we are on a good run. It was only a matter of time before we put the performances together and climbed up the table."

  8. Job done for Palace

    Ex-England winger for 5 live Sport

    It was Palace's day today, thoroughly deserved win for the away side. Their performances are getting better and better, they came out today and tried to dominate and they've done that. Every man did their job for Palace today, every single one of them. Roy Hodgson's obviously working very hard with them on the training ground - and they're getting their rewards.

  9. Post update

    Leicester 0-3 Crystal Palace

    The Palace fans are loving this, the players are all on the pitch - including manager Roy Hodgson - and are hugging and waving their arms in the air.

    Superb scenes at the King Power, but not for the few Leicester fans who stayed back.

  10. FULL-TIME

    Leicester 0-2 Crystal Palace

    Plenty for Claude Puel to think about, his Leicester side have been well beaten today.

    Crystal Palace up to 14th in the Premier League.

  11. Wonderful

    Leicester 0-3 Crystal Palace

    Chris Waddle

    Ex-England winger for 5 live Sport

    Beautifully weighted pass from Wilfried Zaha, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek could have gone himself, but he's laid it off to Bakary Sako and he's just bent it in, first time, straight in the top corner. Wonderful finish.

  12. GOAL - Leicester 0-3 Crystal Palace

    Bakary Sako

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace win the ball back in their own half...and go on to net their third.

    The brilliant Wilfried Zaha sets Ruben Loftus-Cheek free and Leicester have a two-on-one with the goalkeeper.

    Bakary Sako is the man in support on the edge of the box and he curls a delightful finish into the top corner.

    A thumping victory for Crystal Palace.

    Kyle: Brilliant from Palace who's form of late has been sensational and the return of Zaha has been huge. As a Newcastle fan I'm worried though. The takeover has to happen soon.

    Danny Matthews: Wanted Zaha at Spurs in the summer, still want him now. Been great so far this season. Nice tidy finish as well.

  14. Palace excellent

    Chris Waddle

    Ex-England winger for 5 live Sport

    Palace have been excellent today, they set their stall out early on to win all the second balls and be positive in possession, and it's been a really comfortable win for them.

  15. Post update

    Four additional minutes to be played.

  16. Post update

    Leicester 0-2 Crystal Palace

    Chance for Leicester as Demarai Gray finds space in the box.

    He looks up towards a team-mate...

    ...oh dear.

    A left-footed cross is straight into the stand behind Julian Speroni's goal.

  17. Post update

    Leicester 0-2 Crystal Palace

    Demarai Gray's shoots from the edge of the area, but it is blocked.

    Palace will be taking home the points today.

  18. Palace closing it out

    Chris Waddle

    Ex-England winger for 5 live Sport

    It's good play from Palace at the moment, holding onto the ball, running the clock down. Everyone does it - and they're doing it really well right now.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Leicester 0-2 Crystal Palace

    Palace eating up the minutes now.

    Christian Benteke gets a rousing reception from the travelling supporters after scoring one and making another.

    He is replaced by Bakary Sako.

    Three minutes left.
