Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Match Analysis and Prediction

Leicester City continues their quest to finish in the top four race this week as they play host to Crystal Palace in the late kickoff. The match schedules for Monday at King Power Stadium, with a kickoff at 10 pm.

The Foxes currently hold the third spot in the Premier League, four points clear of fifth-placed West Ham, whereas Palace occupies the 13th position. Eleven points clear off the relegation zone this week.

Back to back defeats to Manchester City and West Ham earlier this month had left the Foxes looking over their shoulder in the Premier League. However, there is a buildup of pressure with the matches coming in too soon.

However, it does not take that it has been a fantastic week for Brendan Rodgers, who booked a spot in the FA Cup finals on May 26 against Chelsea. It comes over their 1-0 win over Southampton, followed by a 3-0 win over West Brom in the league on Thursday.

Liverpool dropped points during the weekend, while Tottenham lost in the Carabao Cup finals to Manchester City, giving them a cushion in the top four races.

On the other hand, Palace has been non-active since their 4-1 home defeat to Chelsea on April 10. A 16-day rest is enough time to fully prepare for this clash even though their fate comes sealed.
