Leicester City won against Crystal Palace 2-0 in the English Premier League on Sunday.

The match also marked the first goal of Turkish player Caglar Soyuncu for the Foxes.

Caglar, 23, gave the 1-0 lead for Leicester City in the away match, finding the net by header from a Leicester corner in the 57th minute.

The Turkish international was unmarked in the area to score against Palace.

Visitors made it 2-0 to clinch the win as English forward Jamie Vardy put the ball into Palace net near the end of the match.

"With this amazing win, I’m happy to score my first goal. Many thanks to my teammates and our fans supporting us forever," Caglar Soyuncu said on Twitter.

Leicester City held a poll to select the man of the match on Twitter as Caglar got 82% of the votes to be the player of Sunday's game. Vardy had 11% of the votes.

Leicester City had 23 points to be in the third spot in the Premier League led by Liverpool, who earned 31 points in 11 matches.

Liverpool were experiencing an amazing season as the Reds were still unbeaten in the league. German manager Jurgen Klopp's players earned 10 wins and had only one draw in the Premier League.

Title contenders Manchester City were in the second position with 25 points.

Meanwhile a London club, Chelsea had 23 points but they were in the fourth place on goal difference.

Cenk's vital header brings 1-1 draw to Everton

In the other match on Sunday, Everton earned a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur by Turkish forward Cenk Tosun's header in the minute of 90+7.
