Sunday Premier League action from Selhurst Park, as Palace take on Leicester.

This clash sees thirteenth play fifteenth, as struggling Leicester visit Selhurst Park to face Palace.

Crystal Palace arrive at this game, having secured six points so far this season

Palace have dropped five points in their last two fixtures, drawing 1-1 at Brighton & Hove Albion and losing 3-0 to Liverpool.

With three draws in five games, Manager Patrick Vieira has plenty to ponder, going into the next game, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With fifteenth, they currently sit six points in the League having won one game, drawn three fixtures, and lost two meetings.

Playing at home, Palace have won one game and drawn two matches.

A win in this fixture, would take Crystal Palace’s points from 6 to 9, so far this season.

Palace’s squad will likely be depleted of two of their key players when they start on Sunday, due to injury or illness.

With the Premier League season well into its stride, Leicester City have managed to gain seven points

Losing away to Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1, which followed them drawing home to Burnley 2-2, this is a worrying run of form for Leicester Manager Brendan Rodgers, who goes into this fixture, knowing that only a positive result will be good enough.

League success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so three losses in five matches would not make this a successful season for Leicester. With seven points, they are established in thirteenth in the League having won two meetings, drawn one game, and lost three games.

Leicester will travel to Palace with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory.

Leicester City will have secured 10 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Brendan Rodgers will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of three of his Leicester players.

Crystal Palace v Leicester City – Head-to-Heads.

These two sides have met 40 times before this fixture, with each recording wins on 15 occasions. Additionally, Leicester have repeatedly tasted defeat at the hands of Palace in four out of the last five fixtures with them.

Leicester to win – probability = 41.32 percent.
