Nigeria international, Kelechi Iheanacho, failed to convert a spot kick as his Leicester City forced Crystal Palace to a one-all draw in the Premier League on Monday.
Leicester could have taken an early lead after Luke Thomas was fouled in the box by James Tomkins but Iheanacho’s weak effort from the spot after a stuttering run-up was swatted away by goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.
Palace made it 1-0 just before the hour mark when Andros Townsend floated a cross to the far post for Wilfried Zaha to volley home from an acute angle.
However, Harvey Barnes equalised when he scored his second goal in as many games, driving a low effort from the edge of the box past the outstretched arm of Guaita in the 83rd minute.
Palace’s winless run in the league has now extended to five games but Zaha was glad to take a point.
Leicester will remain second overnight with Everton, level on points with them, not playing later on Monday after their home match against Manchester City was postponed following more positive COVID-19 cases at City.
