Crystal Palace vs Leicester Prediction

The hosts have been hit by a sharp decline in form and are without a win in their past two matches. Following a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City, the home side failed to turn things around last week and managed no more than a 2-2 draw against Arsenal on the road.

With just four wins so far, Palace are currently sitting sixth on the ladder, five points behind counterparts Leicester.

Brendan Rodger’s men are on a high at the moment. The away side are sporting a formidable three-match winning streak in all competitions under their belt, the most recent of which was a 3-1 win over Burton in the Carabao Cup.

It is also worth noting that the visitors have been recording back to back victories in the Premier League, and have tasted defeat just once in their last five games, which to their defense was against the in-form Liverpool by a slender one-goal margin.

Furthermore, Crystal Palace have come out on top just twice in their previous five fixtures on home soil. Both of which, were against sides that are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder.

Hence, although previous h2h meetings at this venue have not been kind to the visitors, Leicester’s stellar form at the moment is certain to deprive Crystal Palace of all three points in this one.

Additionally, Leicester have just one clean sheet to boast of from their outings so far. Also, five of the eight goals that Leicester have conceded so far, have come from their trips on the road. Taking into account that the hosts have also been successful in breaching this foe at least once in each of their last three head to head clashes here, expect Crystal Palace to bag nothing more than a consolation goal this weekend.
