0-3 - Lost
Leicester hosts Crystal Palace in round 18 of the Premier League. Both teams have a good run going but Leicester is the one that has beaten much stronger opponents. Even so Palace is on a 6 match unbeaten run and will gather some confidence from this.
Leicester is placed 8`th with 26 points while Palace is 18`th with 14 points.
Leicester is again looking like the team capable of beating anyone. The level of agression is raised to the one under the best days of Ranieri and the players have clicked again. Vardy, Mahrez and Okazaki have been in brilliant form of late and they are the key for success in this team.
It is very hard to beat Leicester these days and they lost just once in 11 and that was to City. Overly impressive they were in the win over Tottenham while they even brought some points on the road beating Newcastle and Southampton.
Crystal Palace was abismal just a month ago but are picking up the pace lately. They seem to be more attacking minded at home producing 2 goals on average but keep it tighter when traveling. From the last 2 travels to WBA and Brighton they managed to take a 0:0 draw but were quite in the game.
It is still a far cry from what is desired and I am afraid they will have to digg very deep to get anyting from this match. Crystal Palace is woeful on the road and have 0-2-6 and not even a goal scored so far. Not any other team has even similar performances in the league and they are trully th eworst travelers.
Surely they will put a truck in the box but will it be enough on this hard travel. Leicester is just on another level and really should win this.
Leicester will be missing Huth and James while Palace is without Sakho, Delaney, Wickham and Ward.
