Leicester City moved up to second in the Premier League after a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace when Harvey Barnes cancelled out a Wilfried Zaha goal at Selhurst Park on Monday.

Leicester will remain second overnight with Everton, level on points with them, not playing later on Monday after their home match against Manchester City was postponed following more positive Covid-19 cases at City.

The Foxes dominated the bulk of the game but failed to take their chances and missed a first-half penalty while key striker Jamie Vardy only came on as a second-half substitute.

Leicester could have taken an early lead after Luke Thomas was fouled in the box by James Tomkins but Kelechi Iheanacho's weak effort from the spot after a stuttering run-up was swatted away by goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Palace made it 1-0 just before the hour mark when Andros Townsend floated a cross to the far post for Zaha to volley home from an acute angle.

However, Barnes equalised when he scored his second goal in as many games, driving a low effort from the edge of the box past the outstretched arm of Guaita in the 83rd minute.
