Crystal Palace vs Leicester City Preview

Posted by

The Eagles allowed even ten goals in the last two defeats to Liverpool and Aston Villa, and they will be looking for the first Premier League win in five games. The Foxes are coming to Selhurst Park, so check out our Crystal Palace vs Leicester City Preview.

Crystal Palace Recent Form & Team News

Crystal Palace are struggling lately as they conceded shocking 11 goals and scoring zero in the previous five halves of Premier League football. A win at West Brom earlier in December was the only time in their last seven PL games in which they netted the match’s final goal. After allowing another late goal in the most recent game against Aston Villa, Palace’s -7 goal margin in the final 15 minutes was the PL’s worst at the conclusion of Boxing Day.

All but one of their previous six PL losses came by a difference of at least two goals. They don’t have more luck at home, where their latest form reads D1, L2 and a 1-10 goal difference. Liverpool handed the Eagles their biggest-ever Premier League home loss.

Player to watch: Luka Milivojević has been booked in four of his previous five starts in the league.

Roy Hodgson will be without Gary Cahill (thigh), Nathan Ferguson (knee), and Wayne Hennessey (knee). Martin Kelly (calf), Mamadou Sakho (calf), and Connor Wickham (ankle) are also unavailable.

Leicester City Recent Form & Team News

Leicester’s 2-2 stalemate with Manchester United on Boxing Day keeps the Foxes in the title race. They have an impressive W8, D1, L3 record when they play as visiting favorites in the Premier League since the start of 2019/20. That includes a 2-0 victory at Palace when Leicester scored two second-half goals. The Foxes’ commanding +9 second-half goal margin away from home this year is telling us they could get a win on Monday.

The visiting side also won every road game in the league this season except against Liverpool. Although they recorded only two away halftime/full-time doubles, Leicester scored the opening goal in five of their seven PL away matches, winning each time.

Player to watch: Jamie Vardy scored Leicester’s last goal in both H2H encounters last season.

Hot stat: Only one of the previous six H2H clashes produced goals on both ends. One team was winning to nil by a 2+ goal difference in four of those six (and by 3+ in three) duels.

Brendan Rodgers cannot count on Ricardo Pereira (groin), while Cengiz Under (thigh) is questionable.
