Last time out, Leicester City were comfortably second best against Tottenham Hotspur; if they could finished 3rd in that particular two-horse race, they might have done. The Foxes could really do with a big performance to kickstart a difficult, and busy, Christmas run.
On the surface, Crystal Palace look like a great opponent to get that - they’ve lost 8 of their last 11 games in all competitions and sit 16th. They did win their last home game, however, and have scored five in their last three games. We’ll probably have to score a couple to get the win we all expect.

Leicester City Team News:
Some very good news for us this week: Jamie Vardy was back in full training midweek, and should be good to go today. Every silver lining has a cloud, though, and Ben Chilwell will need to pass a late test on his knee if he’s going to play.
Crystal Palace Team News:
It’s a good week to be playing Palace, with James Tomkins and Wilfred Zaha, two important regulars, both suspended. Christian Benteke will also remain out, Scott Dann, Patrick van Aanholt and Connor Wickham could all be set to return.
Leicester City: Chilwell does indeed miss out, but fans will be glad to see Maguire and Vardy return
