Crystal Palace will go for three points against an out-of-form Leicester City at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
Following a disastrous start to the season, the Eagles find themselves on the verge of securing their Premier League status. Palace are 14th in the table with 35 points. They have built up a five-point buffer between themselves and the bottom three. Another three points on Saturday would almost secure their safety.
The Eagles have been in decent form and are undefeated in their last three games. Last weekend, they played a goalless draw at Watford, and in their last home fixture, Roy Hodgson’s men registered a thrilling 3-2 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Foxes will arrive in this game after picking up just one point in their last three games. Their recent struggles have allowed Burnley to race away in the competition for the last European place. Thus, Leicester have nothing significant left to play for this season.
In their last game, the Foxes played a goalless draw against Southampton at King Power Stadium. Prior to that, they had suffered back-to-back defeats to Newcastle United and Burnley.
Earlier this season, Palace claimed a 3-0 win over their opponents at King Power.
