Palace then surged back in the second half as substitutes Michael Olise and Jeffrey Schlupp scored to make it 2-2.

With the draw Palace have seven points from seven games, while Leicester have eight points.

Three things we learned

1. Sleepy Foxes punished: Leicester didn’t start the game well, at all, but they were 2-0 up. Brendan Rodgers will not be happy with the overall display and they seem to lack creativity, but also look shaky in defense. They have a lot of injuries at the back, but that doesn’t excuse the general malaise surrounding Leicester right now. For a team that pushed hard for the top four last season, again, and won the FA Cup and Community Shield in recent months, this has been a poor start to the season.

2. Palace yet to get what they deserve: The Eagles have created lots of chances this season and should have won this game, and others, easily. Patrick Vieira’s side were punished twice in the first half for sloppy defensive mistakes, but they dug deep and grabbed the draw they deserved. They should have won this game, and that is the story of their season so far.

3. Ageless Vardy delivers: His sixth Premier League in the opening seven games was Vardy at his best, a calm finish after being set free, and it is incredible that at the age of 34 he continues to score goals at the rate he does. Only Ian Wright has scored more PL goals than Vardy after the age of 30, and the Leicester forward continues to defy father time. However, his awkward landing in the second half saw him stay down for a long period of time and Leicester need to continue to wrap him up in cotton wool. Despite all of the new forwards they’ve brought in recently, Vardy is still Leicester’s main man.

Man of the Match: Michael Olise – Came on at half time and gave Palace a cutting edge in attack.

Eagles fly out of the traps

Jamie Vardy almost nodded home early on, as Youri Tielemans whipped in a delightful free kick but Palace cleared.

At the other end Jannik Vestergaard blocked a shot from Odsonne Edouard, then Kasper Schmeichel made a smart save from the rebound.

Palace then had two good chances as Wilfried Zaha was denied by Schmeichel and Leicester’s goalkeeper also stopped Conor Gallagher’s rebound.

Leicester take the lead against the run of play

Palace were punished for failing to take those chances, as Kelechi Iheanacho put Leicester City 1-0 up.

Joachim Andersen was caught in possession, as Iheanacho won it back and stroked the ball home.

After Palace had dominated early on, it was Leicester who led against the run of play.

Foxes lethal on the counter

Jamie Vardy then made it 2-0 as Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes combined superbly to set up Vardy, as he peeled off Andersen and finished.

It was a masterclass in being clinical from the Foxes.

Palace launch stirring comeback

Edouard hit the bar at the start of the second half, while substitute Olise went close, then he got Palace a deserved goal.

Olise, at the second attempt, scored his first Premier League goal as the winger got Selhurst rocking.

Jeffrey Schlupp then came off the bench and within 48 seconds equalized for Palace. Schlupp nodded home and set up Palace to try and win it late on.

A corner late on caused havoc, but Leicester survived and held on for a point.

Lionel Messi rejects Saudi Arabia mega-offer, will sign with Inter Miami


Lionel Messi will sign with Inter Miami, opting to move to MLS this summer rather than return to Barcelona or join Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante in Saudi Arabia, according to multiple reports.

[ MORE: UEFA Champions League final, Manchester City vs Inter Milan ]

The deal will reportedly include profit sharing with two of MLS’s biggest commercial partners, Apple and Adidas, alongside his playing contract. According to reports, it could also include an option to purchase a minority stake in the club, which is partially owned (and operated) by David Beckham, who signed a similarly unique deal when he joined MLS in 2007. Beckham’s contract gave him a $25-million option to purchase an expansion franchise, which he exercised in 2018.

Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain is set to expire on June 30 and the Ligue 1 club announced earlier this month that the Argentine superstar — widely considered the greatest player of all time — will leave the club this summer.

Perhaps Inter Miami and MLS weren’t Messi’s first-choice option this summer, as his father previously stated his son’s desire to return to Barcelona, where he famously won 21 major trophies before an unceremonious exit amid financial troubles in the summer of 2021, but those issues still linger two years later. The offer from Saudi Arabia would have reportedly paid Messi, 35, $1.6 billion over three years.

Gerardo “Tata” Martino, who previously worked with Lionel Messi at Barcelona (2013-2014) and Argentina (2014-2016), is reportedly the leading candidate to replace the recently departed Phil Neville as head coach.

Inter Miami, who currently sit bottom (15th) of MLS’s Eastern Conference with 15 points from their first 16 games, parted ways with Neville last week. In his two full seasons in charge, Neville guided the club to regular-season finishes of 11th (of 14) and 6th (of 14) in the Eastern Conference and qualified for the MLS Cup Playoffs in 2022.

UEFA Champions League Final: Key battles for Inter Milan vs Manchester City


Manchester City’s quest for the treble hits its final obstacle when Inter Milan goes toe-to-toe with the Premier League and FA Cup champions in Istanbul at Saturday’s UEFA Champions League Final.

Pep Guardiola’s weren’t at their very best against Manchester United in the FA Cup Final and still walked away with its second trophy of the season.

But City’s final two Premier League matches saw dropped points. The stakes were non-existent and the team quite changed by Guardiola, who’s known to fancy a tactical wrinkle. How will things change this weekend?

[ MORE: Man City vs Inter Milan preview, watch info ]

It would be stunning if Inter boss Simone Inzaghi came out in anything but a 3-5-2, which has been his go-to formation for Inter Milan this season regardless of opponent.

But might Inzaghi have something up his sleeve?

Inter’s only losses in the Champions League came in the group stage versus Bayern Munich. Add in their setbacks in Serie A and there’s still been no standard recipe for beating Inter. There isn’t one for Man City, either, of course.

Kevin De Bruyne vs Marcelo Brozovic

If there’s a single player capable of messing with Pep Guardiola’s plan to control the game and get the ball to his creators in dangerous spots, it’s Croatian veteran Marcelo Brozovic. The 30-year-old is a force who can both be the club’s metronome and break up the opposition’s best attacks. There are few players in the world like De Bruyne, but he needs to be found in space and City needs the ball to do that. Brozovic can be a big part of limiting both of those things.

Erling Haaland vs Francesco Acerbi

Maybe the two names need to be switched in order, because Acerbi is going to have his hands full with Haaland. The question is whether the 35-year-old Acerbi, still very good but no longer in his prime, can use his nous and vast experience to limit Haaland’s chances to do the exceptional. Haaland, meanwhile, just has to be himself. Ask yourself who’s being asked more.

Andre Onana vs Man City’s attack

Picking one player, even Haaland or De Bruyne, for this battle is unfair to the exercise because let’s be real. There is no chance that Inter Milan wins this game without a supreme moment or two from its goalkeeper. Andre Onana has played every Champions League match for Inter and has had his fair share of outstanding performances. He’s outperformed expected goals on target by 6.7 goals over the course of the tournament.

How many times has a team won the treble? Man City goes for history


There’s been a lot of treble talk these days, talk that’s found a new level of buzz since Manchester City moved within one win of joining the club.

It’s an elite club, by the way, of teams that have won their domestic league, top domestic cup, and the European Cup.

Nine times in history has a team won the treble, and only once has it been done by a Premier League club.

That’s why Man City’s defeat of Manchester United earlier this month in the FA Cup Final rings so true for the Citizens; The blue side of Manchester would join the red side as treble supporters, as United won the treble in 1998-99.

Man City goes for the third jewel of its treble crown on Saturday versus Inter Milan in Istanbul when it kicks off the UEFA Champions League Final.
