Leicester City travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace on Sunday, knowing they will likely need a win to keep the pressure on Manchester City and Liverpool ahead of them. A new site to bet in UK 22BET offers their take on the possible outcome of the match.
Leicester have made a remarkable start the Premier League season and sit third currently with 20 points from their opening ten games.
Crystal Palace are three places further back in the table on 15 points after coming back from a two-goal deficit against Arsenal last weekend.
Palace will be aware of the threat of Leicester, who dispatched Southampton 9-0 in their last match, but can carry confidence into the match after one of their best starts to a Premier League season in many years.
Crystal Palace are unlikely to have Connor Wickham, Mamadou Sakho and Vicente Guita available for Sunday’s game, with all three players currently being assessed.
Otherwise, Palace have a clean bill of health and with players such as Jordan Ayew and Wayne Hennessy raising their game, Roy Hodgson’s side have been able to manage without three important squad members.
Leicester’s only injury worry is Matthew James, who continues to recover from a long term Achilles problem.
Leicester are likely to remain unchanged from last weekend’s match, which saw both Ayoze Perez and Jamie Vardy score hat tricks.
Crystal Palace vs Leicester Prediction
With both sides riding high in the table and outperforming what most thought was possible so far, this is a tough match up to pick.
While Selhurst Park can be a tough stadium to play at, Leicester just recorded a 9-0 win away from home, which serves as evidence of the confidence Brendan Rodgers’ side are playing with at the moment.
Palace were also slightly lucky against Arsenal, with a VAR decision costing the Gunners a late winner and on balance, it would appear that Leicester will be just too strong.
Therefore, Leicester is more likely to win on Sunday, perhaps even with a 2-1 win.
