Crystal Palace News and Form
Crystal Palace suffered yet another league defeat last weekend, going down 3-2 at West Ham. That is back to back league losses for them now. Palace have taken just the one win in their last eleven league outings now (D3 L7) and just can’t get that precious momentum going at all. It has been a lean season from them at home where they have taken just a W1 D2 L4 record this season. They did have a success in their last home fixture though as they took a 2-0 home win over Burnley. That took their tally of home goals in this season’s EPL top four
The Eagles have conceded eight goals in their seven home games so it has not been a defensive disaster from them. They have earned a clean sheet in 29% of their home games. The trouble is that they have not scored in 71% of their home games in the EPL this term. Crystal Palace have only been trailing at half time once at home this season (W2 D4). Again the downside to that positive is that the Eagles have shipped 88% of their home goals in the second half of games. Palace have opened the scoring in two of their home games and have the joint-worst home record this season.

Palace won both meetings against Leicester last season to nil
The Eagles are unbeaten in their last three EPL games against Leicester (W2 D1)

Leicester News and Form
The Foxes were brushed aside at the King Power last weekend in a 2-0 loss against Spurs last weekend. That ended a good run of six unbeaten that the Foxes were on in the EPL. They have only claimed the two wins in their last eight league outings though in a W2 D4 L2 record. On their top-flight travels, this term Leicester have posted a W3 D2 L3 record. They have gone undefeated in their last three out on the road as well. They have gone undefeated in their five away games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table (W3 D2)
Leicester have scored in all of their away games this season so that is a big positive for them. 50% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. In exactly two-thirds of Leicester away games this season, both teams have scored. Their Foxes though have been leading in just one of their away games this season at the end of the first half. Of Leicester’s eleven away goals, nine of them have been scored in the second half of games. They have also conceded the opening goal in five of their eight road fixtures this term. Each of their last seven games home and away have ended under 2.5 goals.
