Leicester vs Crystal Palace match preview
Palace have lost their last two fixtures and have one win and two losses – all in all – since the restart. They have crossed the 40-point mark and should be safe from relegation, but will want to pick up a few more points and make sure.
Leicester lost 2-1 to Everton on Wednesday and 1-0 to Chelsea in the fixture before that. Two draws and two wins on the board means they’re yet to rack up a victory since the restart.
Leicester’s poor form since football’s return could place their European qualification in jeopardy. Brendan Rodgers will be hoping for a response from his men against Palace.
In team news, James Maddison is in doubt for Leicester, after aggravating a hip injury in midweek. Crystal Palace have better news, with Christian Benteke set to return from an injury which saw him sidelined for their previous two fixtures.
