Nigerian striker Ahmed Musa opened his Premier League account with his first goal of the season for the reigning Champions Leicester City, in their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at the King Power stadium on Saturday.

Shinji Okazaki and Christian Fuchs extended the host lead before Yohan Cabaye scored a consolation for the Londoners as Palace pressurised the hosts in the final five minutes as they attempted an unlikely comeback.

Italian boss Claudio Ranieri signed the Nigerian international in July 2016 for a club record fee estimated at £16.6 million.

Musa, 24, also scored his first goal for the club in a friendly against Barcelona in the 2016 International Champions Cup which ended in a 4-2 loss.

The victory stretched their unbeaten home run to 20 league games as the Foxes followed up their midweek Champions League.

They headed into this encounter with more Champions League points from three games than Premier League points from eight games.
