Batshuayi, Zaha and Milivojevic on target as Palace pile on the misery and pressure on Leicester boss Claude Puel


CRYSTAL PALACE boss Roy Hodgson celebrated his milestone match in style at the King Power Stadium.

But it was a result that piled more pressure on Leicester manager Claude Puel who saw his side suffer a fourth successive home defeat.

Wilfried Zaha bagged a double against Leicester City

Hodgson overtook Sir Bobby Robson as the oldest man to manage a Premier League game – at 71 years and 198 days old.

And he saw his Palace side soak up virtually everything Leicester could throw at them – before taking the lead in the first half, then adding three more in the last 20 minutes.

Wilfried Zaha scored twice as Palace somehow turned Leicester’s dominance into an outstanding victory.

Hodgson said before the game that he admired the 92-year- old David Attenborough.
