Palace fight back to force 2-2 draw with Leicester

Leicester's 1-0 defeat left Atletico in charge of the tie ahead of Tuesday's return leg, but with Vardy now back among the goals, his team-mates hope more memorable milestones are ahead.

Craig Shakespeare must decide whether to focus on securing Leicester's Premier League survival against Crystal Palace or allow his stars to rest before the latest chapter in their European adventure.

The situation wasn't helped when Younes Benalouane was withdrawn during Saturday's 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace in the Premier League, per Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail.

After only seven minutes Fuchs delivered a bomb of a ball into the Palace box and it so unnerved them that Robert Huth was able to head past goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

However, the player who stood head and shoulders above all others could not be held responsible for either Palace goal and will be a glaring absentee in a match when the quality of courageous leaders will be paramount.

The 53-year-old was appointed as a coach and spent 10 days in the Three Lions set up and was on the bench for September's 1-0 World Cup qualifier in Slovakia. Cramp can turn into a pull, so it was just a precaution, but he's walking fine.

"It looked better (on Friday for Morgan)". He trained with the group for the whole session.

"It's a big ask for him (Morgan) because it's a hard injury to get over, in terms of the power and spring for a centre-back. We didn't sit back after that, a great game, fantastic game, and I'm very pleased we got back to 2-2 and our response".

Leicester City are the first team since Malaga in 2012/13 to reach the quarter-finals on their Champions League debut.

"We needed to be competitive and we had to pick a team to do that".

"He was a player I had a lot of time for". The pressure is constant and no one day is the same, but I don't like to eat the same thing for breakfast every day so that suits me. We need to make sure that we create more, but we also need to be mindful of their players. The same as 2-1 was away from home in Seville - we're looking forward to it and we'll be ready.

Last season, they wrote the first chapter of their outstanding story by winning the English Premier League (EPL) for the first time in the club's history.

"We're going to win the league", the travelling support sang for 15 minutes after the final whistle last March, when Riyad Mahrez's first-half strike settled a scrappy encounter in their favour and saw Ranieri's men move eight points clear at the summit of the standings.
