This will be a match to watch between two of the in-form sides in the league. After smashing Southampton 0-9 last weekend, Brendan Rogers will want his side continuing their golden form.

Past Meetings

Palace have had the upper hand against Leicester in recent times, winning the last four games against The Foxes. Leicester last won against Palace in the 2015/16 season, doing the double over them as they became Premier League champions.

Team News

Following the highly creditable 2-2 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates, expect Palace boss Roy Hodgson to stick with the same starting XI. Hodgson has no injury worries ahead of the clash with Leicester.

The Foxes also have a full squad to choose from, and rotated heavily for the 3-1 over Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday. Expect hitman Jamie Vardy to return to the starting XI.

Crystal Palace vs. Leicester Preview and Predictions

Following difficult encounters against Man City and Arsenal, Palace’s hard run of games continues. Yet they can be confident of getting a result, and they’ve beaten Leicester home and away in the last two seasons They’re 3.50 to do it again here.

Hodgson’s men have only lost at home once this season, and have only conceded three goals at home. They will look to key man Jordan Ayew to find the goals, Ayew had scored four goals this season, in a team that doesn’t score many – Palace have been the most frugal in front of goal from the top seven teams in the division, netting only 10 thus far.

Their opponents are coming off the back of an historic 0-9 victory against Southampton, and you suspect that manager Brendan Rogers won’t want to tinker with his starting XI too much. The Foxes are in a fine run of form and sit third in the table. They’ve won four of their five games and their destruction of Southampton should cause concern for Hodgson’s men, as only the champions Man City have scored more goals. The away victory is 2.15, with the draw at 3.40.

 A win for Leicester could some them reach second, their highest position since winning the league in that famous 2015/16 season.

Recommended Bets

Jamie Vardy to score first at 4.20

With nine goals to his name, the striker is returning to the form that brought Leicester the title three-and-a-half years ago. He’s a good bet to score first.

Leicester to score over 2.5 goals at 4.70

Rodgers’ Foxes are an attack-minded team, and with pace on the break and the creativity of Youri Tielemens and James Maddison, have a number of ways of finding the back of the net.
