Leicester City vs Crystal Palace- Betting Tips and Predictions
Leicester City welcome relegation-threatened Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium in this early kick-off. The Foxes have won their last four matches and haven’t lost in the last 5 matches. Crystal Palace have not lost any of their last six matches although the Eagles have only won two matches in that period. Palace’s manager Roy Hodgson believes his side has closed in on the teams above and there are chances of surviving relegation this term. A win here would see Palace move to 17 points and out of the relegation zone. Leicester are on a four-match winning run, an interesting rediscovery of the form given that the 2015/16 Champions had only won 3 out of the first 13 matches. It promises to be an exciting game at the King Power.
