The last time Leicester City played Crystal Palace, we rode the momentum of a midweek Champions League win to a comfortable 3-1 win. Had we held on for a 0-0 in Madrid, the feeling might have been much the same this time. Instead, the Foxes face a two game losing streak. Two difficult games, including one with many players rested, but still troublesome for a team who’ve developed a habit for winning and losing in long stretches.
With the 2nd leg coming fast, selection will be an interesting decision. Palace are in great form right now and will be tough to beat, but the temptation must be there to rest some players. Equally, with Robert Huth missing the next game, could Shakespeare give Daniel Amartey a run at CB? If he has to play there in the Champions League, you’d rather it wasn't his first go at it.

Leicester City Team News:
Little change here. Morgan, Mendy and Wagué out. Look out for a little rotation though.
Crystal Palace Team News:
The Palace injury list is a lot longer. Jonathan Benteke, Connor Wickham, Steve Mandanda, James Tomkins, Scott Dann, Loic Remy, Pape Soaure and Frazier Campbell are all expected to miss out. Patrick van Aanholt may return, but Andros Townsend is a doubt after limping out of their last game. Excitingly, he might be replaced by the one and only Jeff Schlupp.
Leicester City: Drinkwater rested, a big call but maybe about time. Ulloa starts up front.
Today's starting XI: Schmeichel (c), Simpson, Benalouane, Huth, Fuchs, Mahrez, Ndidi, King, Albrighton, Ulloa, Vardy. #CryLei pic.twitter.com/wYztx2w7f5— Leicester City (@LCFC) April 15, 2017
