The Eagles have lost their last two games, conceding ten goals in the process. The loss to Aston Villa on Saturday would have been particularly concerning for Roy Hodgson.
Palace played a bit more than a half with a man advantage, but still couldn't make it count. Instead, they conceded two more goals in the second half.
For Leicester City, the game on Saturday brought about more evidence of the character in their squad, as they twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Manchester United at the King Power Stadium.
The Foxes dropped down a spot on the Premier League table though, after Everton's 1-0 win over Sheffield United on Saturday night.
