Player ratings as Dewsbury-Hall inspires Foxes to victory


Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall was the matchwinner for Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, registering a goal and an assist as the Foxes defeated in-form Crystal Palace 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.

The result saw Brendan Rodgers’ side leapfrog Palace to ninth in the Premier League table, with the visitors failing to register a victory ahead of their massive FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Sunday.

Leicester started strongly and carved out the game’s first opportunity inside five minutes. A well-weighted clip down the line from Luke Thomas set Ademola Lookman free, but the RB Leipzig loanee could not convert from a tight angle.

Palace responded well as the first half progressed with the in-form Jean-Philippe Mateta forcing a good save out of Kasper Schmeichel after bamboozling the Foxes’ defence with some of the slowest step-overs of all time.

Just after the half-hour mark Youri Tielemans went close, bending an effort just wide of the post from outside the area.
