Musa gets first EPL goal as Leicester beats Crystal Palace

Nigeria’s Super Eagles forward, Ahmed Musa on Saturday, scored his first goal for Leicester City as the champions beat Crystal Palace 3-1 in the English Premier League.

Musa struck on 42 minutes as the Foxes took the lead in a tight first half at the King Power Stadium.

The Nigeria forward struck from outside the area following good work by Algerian striker Islam Slimani, who displayed impressive upper-body strength before teeing him up with a delightful ball.

Musa had the option of passing to Riyah Mahrez on his right but showed the belief and composure of a veteran to fire past Palace goalkeeper Steve Mandanda from 20 yards out.

It was Musa’s first goal for Leicester since completing his move from Russian club CSKA Moscow in the summer.
