Leicester fail to storm Palace in goalless draw


Leicester City’s poor start to the Premier League season was prolonged with a tough goalless draw at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, although the point they won moves them off the bottom of the table for now.

James Maddison had the two best chances at the King Power Stadium but missed on both occasions, while Palace took over an hour to finish in a clash between two lacking confidence sides.

It was the second clean sheet in 10 league games this season for Leicester, who were greeted with jeers from the home crowd at the final whistle, while it was the second straight goalless draw away from home for Palace, who has not played. earned on their trips through the Premier League since April.

There were no clear chances in the first half, with Leicester striker Patson Daka only poking the palms of visiting goalkeeper Vicente Guaita and Marc Guehi heading a free kick at the other end.

Maddison fired wide twice in the second period, while Palace had their first shot on target in the 64th minute when home goalkeeper Danny Ward saved low to his right to deny Odsonne Edouard.

Leicester host Leeds United in their next match on Thursday, while Palace host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Selhurst Park on Tuesday.
