Jamie Vardy scored his 100th and 101st Premier League goals as Leicester boosted their hopes of achieving a top-four Premier League finish with victory over a lacklustre Crystal Palace.
The striker tapped home a Harvey Barnes cross from close range to bring up his top-flight century as the Foxes won for the first time since the restart.
Having failed to find the net in three games since the Premier League's resumption, Vardy then added a second, running clear of the Palace defence before chipping a neat finish past Vicente Guaita.
Kelechi Iheanacho had given the home side the lead, side-footing home a superb, low left-wing cross from Youri Tielemens to claim his second goal in as many games.
This came after a fairly drab first half in which Justin James had struck the bar with a fierce drive for the home side, but little else of note happened.
It is a much-needed win for City, who had seen their grip on a top-four spot weaken following two draws and a loss since the restart.
It puts them six points clear of fifth-placed Wolves, who face Arsenal later on Saturday.
It was another disappointing display from Palace, who set out primarily to contain their opponents and then could not impose themselves in order to alter the outcome once they fell behind.
Gary Cahill came closest to salvaging something from the game for them with a downward header, saved by Kasper Schmeichel.
After winning their first game back, Roy Hodgson's side have now lost three on the bounce - a run that surely ends any hope they had of snatching a Europa League qualification spot.
Vardy joins 100 club Vardy brought up his 100th Premier League goal in his 206th appearance - not quick enough to place him in the division's top 10 fastest to the milestone.
That table is led by the Premier League's all-time record goalscorer Alan Shearer, who hit the century mark in just 124 matches.

He probably will not have had an easier finish in his entire career than the one presented to him for his 100th goal, with Barnes forcing a mistake from Palace and winning the ball before laying on an open goal for the striker to find.
His second goal was classic Vardy, though, with the striker drawing on his pace to beat the defence, and his deft touch to finish - indicative of him at his best.
It is a timely return to goalscoring form, for both the former England international and his club.
Having scored 17 goals in 19 games before the turn of the year, his form fell off a cliff in 2020, bringing him just two more goals in 10 matches.
Leicester won just two of those to leave their grip on a top-four place looking very precarious.
But with Vardy back scoring, and Iheanacho a capable and willing foil, suddenly things look a lot rosier for the Foxes.
