I'm not sorry for anything, says Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke

Wilfried Zaha is still in celebration mood after helping Crystal Palace to their first away win of the season.

The Foxes succumbed to Crystal Palace's lethal finishing on the counter as Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha and Bakary Sako each hit the back of the net to seal a comfortable victory for the visitors, subsequently ending Leicester's five game unbeaten streak.

Vicente Iborra had a headed goal correctly ruled out for a push on the hour and Leicester suffered a further blow a minute later when birthday boy Wilfred Ndidi received a second yellow card for a dive and was sent off.

It was a simple goal but a well-crafted one as Andros Townsend made room to cross for Benteke, who lost Wes Morgan to head in from 12 yards before celebrating with his fingers in his ears.

Benteke atoned for midweek's mistake by getting the visitors to a flawless start after scoring a header off Andros Townsend's cross in the 19th minute.

The forward sidestepped Ben Chilwell and drilled low past Schmeichel for his fourth goal of the season.

Conor McGregor suggests that his next fight will be MMA, not boxing
He fought the returning Mayweather at the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds and they used 8-ounce gloves. While Mayweather is back in retirement, there has no shortage of speculation about McGregor's next move.

Two minutes later, Benteke nearly scored again – this time into his own net – while heading a Leicester corner just past the Palace post.

But Sako did score a stoppage-time third when he curled into the top corner from 18 yards out.

Former Crystal Palace and Arsenal striker, and now TV pundit Ian Wright has stated that he believes Eagles frontman Christian Benteke will score regularly as long as his teammates play to his strengths.

We didn't start the day with a good intensity or tempo, or good quality.

Last week, Benteke - who should have allowed Luka Milivojevic to take the spot kick as the Serbian had scored a penalty earlier in the match - apologised to his team-mates and manager Roy Hodgson, admitting he had let them down.

I didn't see a replay, but I think it was too little fall, maybe and it is harsh to lose a player like Ndidi because he is a crucial, valuable player. Palace deserve the result, they played with desire, togetherness and quality.
