Crystal Palace are winless in the last three premier league games vs Leicester City. Their last win came in a 4-1 victory away at the King Power back in February 2019. 

Kelechi Iheanacho's form of late has given teams a different threat to focus on with Jamie Vardy turning provider more often than not. The Nigerian is Leicester City's top goalscorer in all competitions with 16 goals. 

However, in the last meeting between these two sides Iheanacho had a game to forget after missing countless chances as well as a penalty in a 1-1 draw. He will be keen to avenge this performance in which he received a lot of criticism. 

Wilfried Zaha will be the major threat for Palace, and whether it be Castagne or Ricardo at right-back, they will have to be on their A-game. 

Leicester will have too much for the eagles and it may be a tough afternoon for the visitors, with Maddison back fit he will be keen to get back on the scoresheet with the Euros fast approaching.
