Crystal Palace vs Leicester: Top Two Tips

Here are our Premier League predictions for Saturday's clash between Crystal Palace and Leicester City at Selhurst Park. Leicester could move above the Eagles this weekend if Rodgers' men can find a way to secure all 3pts at Selhurst Park. Roy Hodgson has taken the reigns of Crystal Palace's new manager alongside Paddy McCarthy and the pair have a tough job on their hands turning their side's poor fortunes around.

Leicester Double Chance

Our first Crystal Palace vs Leicester prediction is for Leicester to avoid defeat on Saturday. The Foxes haven't lost any of their last seven league games against Crystal Palace, picking up four wins and three draws, and we're backing the visitors to come away with at least a point and possibly more this weekend. Palace have lost each of their last four outings in the Premier League and while Leicester's form has also been poor their head-to-head record against the Eagles should give them an advantage.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our second Crystal Palace vs Leicester prediction concerns to the total goals scored during the 90-minutes. The last meeting between these two clubs ended in a goalless draw and we're expecting another low-scoring game this weekend. Five of Crystal Palace's last six matches have featured under 2.5 goals, while three of Leicester's last five fixtures have also witnessed fewer than three goals scored.

Crystal Palace vs Leicester  Lineups

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace suffered a heavy defeat away at title-chasing Arsenal, as many expected them to. The Gunners were already 3-0 up by the time Schlupp pulled a goal back for the visitors in the 63rd-minute and after that, Saka scored a fourth to restore Arsenal's three-goal advantage and make the final scoreline 4-1 to the home side. Vicente Guaita could return to the squad this weekend for Hodgson's return to management, but Johnstone, McArthur, Ferguson and Andersen are all doubts due to injury.

Predicted Lineup – Guaita (GK), Tomkins, Ward, Guéhi, Mitchell, Milivojević, Schlupp, Doucouré, Olise, Zaha & Édouard

Leicester

Leicester made the tricky trip to the capital to face Brentford last time out. Despite falling behind in the 32nd-minute, the Foxes fought back to earn a share of the spoils thanks to an equaliser from Barnes early in the second half.  Justin, Tielemans, Souttar, Kristiansen, Bertrand, Evans and Vestergaard are all doubts through injury but Wout Faes makes his return following a brief suspension.

Predicted Lineup – Iversen (GK), Pereira, Amartey, Castagne, Faes, Ndidi, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Daka & Tetê

Player to Watch: Harvey Barnes

In what has been an inconsistent and disappointing season on the whole for Leicester a couple of players have shone, one of which is Harvey Barnes.

The 25-year-old midfielder top-scores in the Premier League for the Foxes alongside James Maddison on 9-goals. Barnes' best-ever goals return in the Premier League was 9-goals, so the England international only needs to find the back of the net one more time before the season ends to record his best-ever goals tally.

Barnes has been in decent form of late, scoring three goals in his last eight league games and we're backing the winger to make an impact this weekend against a low-on-confidence Crystal Palace side.
