Vicente Guaita-6

The Spanish goalkeeper saw a ball come off his post in the first half but had little to do after that before making a big save early in the second half to keep the game at 0-0. Could do little about the Leicester goal.

Joel Ward-5

Picked ahead of Nathaniel Clyne, the experienced full back looked comfortable when defending but just did not add much going forward.

Tyrick Mitchell -5.5

Tidy and energetic in the first half but his influence dwindled in the second half.

Marc Guehi-6

The often reliable defender left his passing boots at home, especially in the first half- but was strong and solid when defending aerially. Took a booking for the team.

Michael Olise- 6

Very lively in the first half, needs to work on his finishing and he’ll be one hell of a player.

Eberechi Eze- 8

Started the game with a point to prove having been one of the players reported to have been sidelined in Vieira’s last days. He was exciting all game, taking on players and testing the Leicester backline at the least opportunity. Brilliant free kick to get Palace back to 1-1 and cap off a good day at the office.

Wilfried Zaha- 6

Captain Zaha was full of tricks today and looked to be back to his brilliant best. His bicycle kick in the first half would have been special had it gone in, before limping off with what looked like a groin injury.

Jeffrey Schlupp-6

Strong in his tackles and aggressive off the ball.

Joachim Andersen- 6

Solid and effective without necessarily being assertive. Won his individual battles and was first to the ball mostly.

Odsonne Edouard- 5.5

Led the line well but just still lacks the confidence needed to score goals.

Cheick Doucoure- 6

Brilliant strike early on to test Daniel Iversen in post for Leicester. Then his anticipation was world class, in one of those moments he picked the ball and set up Edouard but the striker could just not finish.

Jordan Ayew-6

Replaced Wilfried Zaha and didn’t do much wrong. Will be delighted with his assist for the winner.

Will Hughes - N/A

Came in for Schlupp with the game in the balance, but not much involved.

Jean Philippe Mateta-6

Late replacement for Odsonne and grabbed the all-important winner with really the last kick of the game.
