Crystal Palace vs. Leicester City Match Analysis and Prediction

After a hard fight on Boxing Day for the Foxes, they head into another anticipated clash in the Premier League against Crystal Palace. The match schedules for Monday at Selhurst Park with kickoff at 6 pm.

Crystal Palace had a devastating holiday week in the Premier League while conceding ten goals with defeats to Liverpool and Aston Villa. Leicester City held off Manchester United to a 2-2 draw.

Despite sharing the spoils at King Power Stadium, the Foxes were the happier of the two sides after twice coming from behind to claim a point. United was guilty of failing to take their chances in the final third; however, the playing ground was leveled.

With trips to London and Newcastle coming soon, the Foxes needed to gain a result, ensuring they remained in the mix for the top six. Brendan Rodgers will have to keep in mind a hefty schedule. The Northern Irishman will expect to pick up a win in the doubleheader.

Although Roy Hodgson faced a tough run of games, he expected to pick up more points from their 5-1 win against West Brom. However, heavy draws to Tottenham and West Ham left the side to pay attention to their next scheduled fixtures. The Eagles remain seven points above the relegation zone; however, a loss this Monday will put more questions on their form.

Brendan Rodgers might have to revert to a back three, with Christian Fuchs recalled with Justin switching to the left wing-back to help cope with Wilfred Zaha. Timothy Castagne is unlikely to start 48 hours after recovering from an injury.
