Leicester vs Crystal Palace preview, TV channel, kick-off time, date, odds and team news
Leicester will be hoping to continue their good run of form which saw the Foxes dismantle Southampton 4-1 in the midweek fixtures.
Claude Puel has the Midlands side playing with explosive pace on the counter, in a similar vein to their title winning side.
Riyad Mahrez, in particular, has been rejuvenated under Puel’s stewardship and he was integral during their win at St Mary’s.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace will be buoyed by their showing against Watford.
Goals from Bacary Sako James McArthur in the 89th and 92nd minutes saw the Eagles win in dramatic fashion as they moved out of the relegation zone before Wednesday’s games.
It was only a third win of the season for Palace but continues an unbeaten run now stretching to six games.
