Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Match Preview
Claude Puel continues to cling on as Leicester City’s manager – and the match against Crystal Palace is exactly the type he would win to keep himself in a job.
The Frenchman could almost be described as having more lives than a cat because sections of the Leicester support have wanted him out for a while now – and if reports are to be believed, the same is true of some players.
But after five defeats in six, this really is crunch time for Puel. And up to now, just when the wolf has been casting an ominous shadow at the door, the manager has pulled out a big result just when needed, such as a win over Manchester City or a draw away to Liverpool.
If the Foxes lose to Palace it is hard to see how Puel can remain in charge much longer, although they do have a favourable run of fixtures until a very tough end to the season.
Palace are the form pick here, unbeaten in five having become more solid at the back, but with home advantage we will side with Puel to pull another rabbit out of the hat and buy himself at least a bit more time at the Leicester helm.
