Palace fight back to force 2-2 draw with Leicester

The Foxes could be without Huth and the injured Wes Morgan for the first time

Craig Shakespeare's Leicester side go into Tuesday's game attempting to overturn a 1-0 deficit.

And the players don't hide that fact. "Cramp can turn into a pull, so it was just a precaution".

Leicester City have defied all the odds in the last two years, escaping relegation, winning the Premier League and then making it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League in their maiden appearance in the competition. "We're the underdogs but we want to take our chance", said the Austria worldwide when he spoke alongside Shakespeare.

Their ambitions are rather more modest 13 months on - domestically at least - but this draw against in-form opponents means they have virtually secured their place in the Premier League for the 2017/18 campaign. We just enjoy the time that we have.

"These are the days in which I say that the fans have to be there and what we need is that they not only come to see a football match but they come to be another player".

A raucous atmosphere and a performance of relentless intensity saw Leicester turn a 2-1 deficit against Sevilla into a 3-2 aggregate win in the previous round and left-back Christian Fuchs is relishing trying to make life hard for another LaLiga opponent. Where the club has come from is remarkable.

That's why writing off the Foxes can backfire.

The Premier League champions will try out another option from their armoury, perfected at Crystal Palace on Saturday - the long throw.

Even as Leicester slid down the standings this season, plunged into a relegation fight that cost manager Claudio Ranieri his job, the team still defied expectations in Europe.

Diego Simeone intends to "squeeze the maximum" out of Atletico Madrid in the closing stages of the season.

Leicester lost at the Vicente Calderon last week after referee Jonas Eriksson awarded a penalty after Griezmann was fouled by Albrighton outside of the area.

"Let's show they have got it wrong tomorrow", Shakespeare said. "I think the result from Madrid has given us a bit of confidence and it's only 1-0, we've still got a chance in this game".

And not crack under the pressure, Fuchs said in response to an Easter egg-themed question. The same as 2-1 was away from home in Seville - we're looking forward to it and we'll be ready.

"I am pleased with how he has progressed".

"We have to get on with it".
