There will be a huge game at the King Power Stadium to kick off the Premier League weekend on Saturday. Leicester City come into the tenth round of the league fixtures sitting bottom of the standings, and they will be looking for a second victory of the campaign.
Premier League Preview
Things look extremely bleak for Leicester City coming into the fixtures this weekend, as they are back at the bottom of the Premier League standings. The Foxes have made a habit of coming back from weak starts in the past, but this season looks a challenge that they haven’t faced for an extremely long time.
They are looking very vulnerable in defence at this stage of the season, and they have conceded more goals than any other side in the Premier League. There is still a clear goal scoring threat, with much of that being down to the impressive performances of James Maddison throughout the early months. However, they come into this fixture at the King Power after losing their previous fixture in the Premier League. That defeat was suffered on the road, as they lost 2-1 to Bournemouth.
Crystal Palace looked to be heading in the wrong direction before their game last weekend, but they were able to pick up a huge victory at Selhurst Park against Leeds United. That win lifted them up to 15th in the standings, and ended a wait of four games without a victory.
Patrick Vieira’s side needed to show their character in that home fixture, as they fell behind after just ten minutes. However, they struck back before the break through an Odsonne Edouard goal. The points were wrapped up with 15 minutes remaining of the 90, as Eberechi Eze scored the game-winning goal.
Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Head to Head
Leicester City has picked up victories in each of the previous three fixtures that they have played against Crystal Palace. Palace did the double over Leicester in each of the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons, but they are now winless in their previous six.
Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Prediction
This is a massive game for the Foxes at the King Power on Saturday. Palace’s recent record in this fixture would be a concern for Vieira, but the number of goals that Leicester is conceding will give them a chance. We could see an entertaining match being played out, but a draw may be the most likely outcome.
