Leicester vs Crystal Palace Predictions


Leicester have recently registered some important wins in the Premier League and FA Cup. Crystal Palace have had some heavy losses and are in inconsistent form. 

Leicester striker Kelechi Iheanacho is in sensational form. I am backing him to score again and Leicester to win. 

  • Leicester have won 5 of their last 7 matches (all competitions)
  • Leicester have won 3 of their last 5 matches (Premier League)
  • Leicester’s Kelechi Iheanacho has scored 11 goals in his last 8 matches (all competitions)
  • Leicester have won 3 of their last 5 home matches against Crystal Palace (Premier League)
  • Crystal Palace have lost 5 of their last 9 away matches (all competitions)

Head-to-Head


Leicester have a 28-27 advantage against Crystal Palace with 19 matches drawn. 

Leicester Form 


Leicester beat West Brom 3-0 at home on Thursday. Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans and Kelechi Iheanacho scored in the first half to cap a dominant display with 2.67 expected goals and 17 shots.

The win followed a 1-0 victory over Southampton in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday, where Iheanacho scored the winner.

Leicester's victory against West Brom ended a run of two consecutive Premier League defeats to Man City and West Ham.

Brendan Rodgers’ side remain in third place in the Premier Leagie. They have a four-point cushion in the race for Champions League football next season.

Leicester Injuries & Team News


Forward Harvey Barnes and defender James Justin are ruled out through injury. 

Crystal Palace Form


Crystal Palace lost 4-1 at home to Chelsea last Saturday. Roy Hodgson’s side conceded three first-half goals, had 35% possession and just one shot. 

It was a second heavy defeat for Palace in four Premier League matches. A 4-1 away loss against Spurs was followed by a 1-0 home victory against West Brom and a 1-1 draw with Everton. 

The Eagles are 13th in the Premier League and 11 points off the relegation places. Palace have struggled for results recently in the Premier League and are winless in five of their last six. 

Crystal Palace Injuries & Team News


Striker Michy Batshuayi and midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp will return to the squad.

Defensive duo Nathaniel Clyne and Gary Cahill are also back in contention.

Centre backs James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho are doubtful. 

Defender Nathan Fergusson, striker Conor Wickham and midfielder James McArthur are ruled out.
