Since making his debut in February 2017, Luka Milivojević had now scored more goals in the Premier League for the Eagles than any other player (16). Palace had now won three of their last 16 games in the Premier League (lost ten).

Comments:

League position: 12th Leicester City failed to score for the first time in their last ten away games in the Premier League. The Foxes had now won one of their last six games in the Premier League (lost two). This was the first time in 11 games in this Premier League season that they lost to a team who were below them in the table at kick-off (won six).
