Ghana winger Jeffrey Schlupp made an injury return on Saturday afternoon as Crystal Palace all-but maintained their premier league status with an impressive 5-0 victory over 10-man Leicester City
The match at the Selhurst Park was Schlupp’s first in a month. He played seven minutes after replacing James McArthur.
Palace had the match virtually sewn up at half-time after goals from Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur, which both came from fantastic passing moves.
The Foxes upped their intensity early in the second half, but any hopes of a comeback looked out of sight when Marc Albrighton was shown a straight red card for pulling down an onrushing Zaha.
They fell apart in defence and Ruben Loftus-Cheek then Patrick van Aanholt slotted goals past goalkeeper Ben Hamer.
Christian Benteke, on as a late substitute, compounded Leicester’s misery when he scored from the spot after being fouled by Harry Maguire.
