Sam Allardyce praises Crystal Palace fightback to earn 'precious point'

Zaha declared his allegiance to the Ivory Coast and has enjoyed great form ever since

Yet here was Christian Fuchs's long throw arcing into the penalty area towards Robert Huth, who eased away from Luka Milivojevic and easily outjumped Joel Ward to guide a header across the static Wayne Hennessey and into the net.

"He trained with the group for the whole session".

"It's a big ask for him because it's a hard injury to get over, in terms of the power and spring for a centreback".

"We have hard games coming up, none more so than this today and we knew it was going to be hard because they play a very good system".

"We'll get it looked at".

And Mills thinks that the Eagles have done just about enough to make sure they are going to be playing Premier League football next season.

But Palace swiftly responded through Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke to claim a point and move seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare says he is not surprised by Crystal Palace's revival under Sam Allardyce.

"It kept our run going, showing just how good we are at the moment".

"There is a tinge of disappointment, especially when you go two up away from home", said Shakespeare.

With all of the chances that they created, they will feel a point is fully deserved.

After the match, Allardyce spoke to Sky Sports about how important the point is: "It's a tremendous point for us".

Bashar Assad Tells AFP That Chemical Attack Was Western 'Fabrication'
Air Force Colonel John Dorrian, a spokesman for the coalition, said it had carried out no air strikes in that area at that time. However, Prime Minister Theresa May today said that Britain believed Assad's government was responsible for the gas attack.

There was still more to come from the home side and Benteke brought them level in the 70th minute, beating his man to the ball after Townsend's cross from the left before heading home from the edge of the six-yard box.

"We could have seen it out if we'd stayed in the lead a bit longer, but they asked a lot of questions of us with their aerial threat".

"I have seen fouls given in oher games for what happened with Benteke goal, but there is nothing we can do about it now". It's a fantastic point.

From there it was all Palace, with Leicester's best chance coming courtesy of another Fuchs long throw that Ward almost turned into his own net in the 65th minute.

Compared to that blitzing of Arsenal, this ended up being a very different sort of test for Palace, who had shown a surprising lack of spark until they had fallen two goals behind.

You can argue Leicester having to recover from their midweek jaunt to Spain has been factored into Palace's price but they were winners at West Ham immediately after knocking Sevilla out of the Champions League so there should be no real excuses on that front.
