Was the result fair?
In a word, yes. Crystal Palace endured a tricky opening 20 minutes or so, but it was plain sailing from there. Warnock's side threatened to open the scoring at times throughout the first half, before the hosts made good on those threats after the break with two goals in the space of four second-half minutes. Fully deserved three points.
Crystal Palace's performance
Palace went into this one with a question mark hanging over their ability to combat the in-form Leonardo Ulloa. Did they answer it? Emphatically. Ulloa, with five goals in as many games for Leicester this season, was negated for the entire encounter and was not given an inch in which to work his magic. The Palace back four can take as much heart from this win as goalscorers Campbell and Jedinak.
Leicester City's performance
Leicester came crashing back down to earth this afternoon following their 5-3 win over Manchester United last weekend. It was the last in a series of tricky fixtures for the newly-promoted Foxes, so much so that today's trip to visit to Crystal Palace, a team at a similar level, represented their first real test. Did they pass? No.
Jamie Vardy and David Nugent missed two good chances to open the scoring at the start of each half, and their heads dropped after quickfire goals from Campbell and Jedinak. They may have earned good results against Everton, Arsenal and Manchester United, but it is points against teams like Palace that will shape their season.
Sports Mole's man of the match
Yannick Bolasie: Although not on the scoresheet, the left-winger can take as much credit for this victory as any one of his teammates. Bolasie tormented right-back Ritchie de Laet, who was later replaced by Danny Simpson in a tactical switch, regularly throughout the encounter, and won the free kick that led to the second goal. Fine performance.
Joel Ward was lucky to both stay on the field and not concede a penalty after he fouled Jamie Vardy in the area in the final 10 minutes. Fortunately for him the incident was missed by referee Keith Shroud and his officials, otherwise that might have been the starting point of a comeback on a different day.
Keith Shroud had a very decent performance for the best part of 80 minutes, but he should have awarded a clear penalty to Leicester after Joel Ward dragged Jamie Vardy down inside the box. It was Shroud's only blemish in an otherwise solid refereeing display - but a major one.
Crystal Palace: Warnock's side travel to the KC Stadium to face Hull City next Saturday.
Leicester City: The Foxes also get back underway on Saturday, hosting fellow newly-promoted outfit Burnley at the King Power Stadium.
