Shakespeare hopes Morgan will be fit for Atletico clash

Shakespeare hopes Morgan will be fit for Atletico clash

Both Crystal Palace and Leicester have won 15 of a possible 18 points in their last six Premier League games - the only side to have won more points in their last six PL matches are Spurs (18).

The battle at the bottom is where the biggest action is, with in-form Crystal Palace welcoming Champions League quarter finalists Leicester City to Selhurst Park, while rock bottom Sunderland continue to seek a win - or even a goal - against West Ham.

Palace then swiftly responded through Yohan Cabaye and, with Christian Benteke's equalising goal, secured the draw that took them up to 15th, seven points clear of the bottom three.

Leicester is two points ahead of the London club in 12th place after mounting a feeble defence of its title.

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare will wait until the last minute before deciding whether to gamble on Wes Morgan's fitness in Tuesday's decisive Champions League showdown with Atletico Madrid. Substitutes: Patrick van Aanholt (for Schlupp, 69) 5, James McArthur (for Zaha, 84) 5. The group are in a good shape and we showed that today with some great character especially after their lead, we came back in the game well and as I say disappointed not to have taken more.

Leicester City: Schmeichel 7, Simpson 5, Benalouane 6, Huth 8, Fuchs 6, Mahrez 5, Ndidi 6, King 5, Albrighton 6, Ulloa 5, Vardy 6.

Leicester appeared set to head into the Atletico match on the back of a victory that would have drawn a line under any lingering relegation fears.

"We knew it was going to be hard and sometimes we had a bit of trouble breaking them down".

"That's the rule and we've got to get rid of that because a 14-year-old shouldn't be bought from Crystal Palace by Manchester City or Chelsea because they're just overloading, right?"

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.

"Their first goal was all important for them, two minutes from our second".

"There was no temptation on my part to rest players (for Tuesday) because we still needed points".

Premier League rules dictate that eight of those in a first-team squad must be considered home-grown, which in the present climate can include those from within the European Union who are ineligible to play for England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland or Ireland.
