Crystal Palace vs Leicester – Premier League preview and team news

Having upset the odds by beating Manchester United in their last game, promoted Leicester City aim for their third straight win at Crystal Palace.

Neil Warnock emulated the achievements of predecessor Tony Pulis by gaining a 3-2 victory away to Everton, a game in which their front three of Yannick Bolasie, Fraizer Campbell and Jason Puncheon proved too difficult for the Merseyside club to handle. Defeat in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday was a minor setback, but they will now be in a more buoyant mood having earned that all-important first league win.

What Leicester have shown so far is that they will be anything but a one-season wonder in the Premier League. Five hugely challenging games to start have landed a praiseworthy eight points, and not only do they have remarkable fighting spirit, they have quality in both boxes, with Leonardo Ulloa ably supported by David Nugent and Jamie Vardy in attack, and the solid duo of Wes Morgan and Liam Moore at the heart of the defence.

The hosts have a fully-fit squad, but Warnock is likely to make several changes from the side which lost in extra time to Newcastle United.

Matthew Upson is still out for Leicester, but otherwise their squad is also injury-free, and Nigel Pearson may go with the same team that produced the heroics against the expensively assembled Red Devils.
