Crystal Palace vs Leicester City Match Preview

Leicester won their last Premier League match 9-0 and although the scoreline is unlikely to be anywhere near as emphatic again, we are backing them for another away victory.

The Foxes did not score more than four goals in a game during their 2015-16 title-winning season, but they racked up five in the first half alone against 10-man Southampton to equal the biggest ever margin of success since this competition was inaugurated in 1992.

Brendan Rodgers’ team are comfortably inside the top four and indeed have leapt above Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United in the betting to qualify for a crack at the Champions League next term.

Mind you, Crystal Palace are also going along very nicely. They entered the weekend sixth in the table and fought back commendably from 2-0 down for a draw at Arsenal last Sunday.

Manager Roy Hodgson is 72 now and the oldest ever Premier League boss but in talks about extending his contract for another season, which is understandable given the form the Eagles are showing.

Matches at Selhurst Park have generally been tight affairs this season and this may well be another. But Leicester are full of confidence and excellent going forward, so they are backed to win again and cement their top-four position.
