In Form Leicester Will Be Too Strong For Toothless Crystal Palace At Home

Saturday 16th December 2017, 12.30pm - Leicester v Crystal Palace (King Power Stadium)

The big Saturday lunchtime game this weekend is an interesting one as Leicester host Crystal Palace with both teams in need of the three points. Claude Puel has hit the ground running at the King power Stadium, but it won't be easy for the Foxes against a Palace side who are scrapping at the bottom of the table.

  • Crystal Palace are yet to score a single goal away from Selhurst Park this season
  • Leicester have won their last two matches at home against Palace and are looking for a 5th win on the bounce.

Flying Foxes The Favourites For the Win

The appointment of Claude Puel at Leicester wasn't met with too much excitement by the fans at the time but they have certainly changed their tune since. Leicester go into the game having won their last four matches on the spin, and few would be surprised if they make it five against Palace.

Leicester went to Southampton in midweek and came home with a stunning 4-1 success, and with that in mind they are the 10/11 favourites to win this match with Betfred.

Palace have been proving a far tougher outfit to beat since Roy Hodgson arrived at the club, but their away record remains a woeful one. They have picked up just two points on the road this term in the Premier League, and are yet to score a single goal which explains their price of 17/5 with Betfair to claim the upset success.

Puel Has The Cunning Foxes In Good Shape

The Foxes struggled early on this campaign but the arrival of Claude Puel has been just the tonic they needed to re-find their best form.

Leicester have rocketed up the table in recent weeks with four successive wins and they are surely eyeing a top seven finish this term. The key to their upturn in form has been their threat in front of goal with the tally rising at quite a pace in recent weeks and matches.

They have scored ten goals in those four recent wins which is encouraging and they put an exclamation mark on that with four goals at a normally stubborn Southampton. Okazaki once again proved himself invaluable with two important goals, and Mahrez looked back to his best as he produced a lovely goal.

Conclusion

It has been a different story for Palace with the Eagles still without a single goal away from Selhurst Park. They have certainly improved under Roy Hodgson and are tougher to beat in general but that record on the road cannot be ignored. Leicester couldn't be in any better form and a home win to nil looks the best bet at 11/5 with bet365.
