EPL: Ndidi, Iheanacho lose with Leicester, Arsenal beat Leeds



Super Eagles duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho were in action as Leicester City fell to a late defeat to Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.

While Ndidi played throughout the game, Iheanacho came on in the 72nd minute as the Foxes searched for a winner, but instead fell to a defeat.

Ricardo Pereira had opened the scoring for Leicester in the 56th minute before Daniel Iversen scored an own goal to help Palace equalise three minutes later.

The visitors thought they were taking away a point from the game as time for the final whistle drew closer but a 94th-minute Jean-Philippe Mateta winner sealed it for the hosts.
