The Super Eagles duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi were condemned to a heavy defeat on Saturday in the Premier League as they were beaten 5-0 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

 The result is a massive one for Palace in their bid to escape relegation to the Championship.

Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur gave Palace a half-time lead and Leicester's hopes were further hit when Marc Albrighton was dismissed after the break.

Palace were coasting to victory but three goals in the final nine minutes - from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Patrick van Aanholt and Christian Benteke respectively - have boosted the club's hopes of remaining in the top flight.

Roy Hodgson's team now sit in 11th place - six points above the relegation zone - while Leicester remain ninth and officially out of contention for a Europa League spot.
