Leicester back in third after 2-0 win at Crystal Palace

Caglar Soyuncu's first goal for his club and a late effort by Jamie Vardy earned Leicester City a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace to move them back into third place in the Premier League on Sunday.

Turkish centre back Soyuncu broke the deadlock at Selhurst Park when he headed home James Maddison's 57th-minute corner.

Vardy fired in his 10th league goal of the season late on to seal the points and a third successive win for Leicester.
