Leicester City v Crystal Palace Match Preview & Trends

Foxes to be issued yellow first once more?

Leicester City are once again scheduled for Monday Night football after crushing West Brom last week. The 3-0 win at home was a welcome tonic for the foxes as they prepare to face Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace at The King Power Stadium. That match against The Baggies saw a return to the scoresheet for record-breaking striker Jamie Vardy for the first time since minor surgery earlier this year. It will be welcome news to Brendan Rodgers who now has two inform forwards once again as Kelechi Iheanacho continues to impress week in week out for the Foxes.

Crystal Palace conceded at least 1 goal in 93% of their away matches, testament perhaps to how much they are missing key defenders James Tompkins and injury-plagued Mamadou Sahko. Ex-England international Gary Cahill has struggled to find a regular partner to stay fit alongside him at the back and the lack of a consistent partnership has certainly cost The Eagles who have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games.

Leicester have been shown the first card in the last 4 games against Crystal Palace. Will history repeat itself for a fifth straight game between the two sides? Stranger things have happened and it might be worth a cheeky bet on it recurring once more.
