EPL: Leicester Leap Frog Chelsea on Goal Difference to Third Spot

Crystal Palace 0 – 2 Leicester

Goals:
Caglar Soyuncu 57′, Jamie Vardy 88′

Leicester moved up to third in the Premier League as second-half goals from Caglar Soyuncu and Jamie Vardy saw off Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Turkey centre-back Soyuncu, who joined from Freiburg in 2018, has been one of the shining stars for the Foxes this season and further endeared himself to their fans with a stooping header that broke the deadlock in the 57th minute.

Jamie Vardy, who scored a hat-trick in the 9-0 win at Southampton, then sealed the away win in the 88th minute with a first-time strike after a swift one-two with substitute Demarai Gray.

Full-back Ben Chilwell came close to adding a third in stoppage time but saw his angled strike come off the inside of the post.
