Match Preview

With a record of: W1, D2, L7, from their last ten PL matches, the home side are just three points off the bottom. Only Huddersfield have performed worse in front of their own fans this season, with Crystal Palace winning at home only once, and scoring just four goals in seven matches.
In truth, scoring goals anywhere is a big challenge for Palace, and 13 scored after 16 PL rounds is the joint-second worst tally overall. At home, they’ve drawn a blank in five of seven matches so far, but Leicester are welcome guests, with Palace scoring 2+ goals in five of the last seven home H2H matches against Leicester.
Leicester themselves are clinging on to a top-half position despite winning just one of their last five league matches (W1, D3, L1). As good away as at home this season (W3, D2, L3), they’ve found the net at least once in all of their PL away matches so far.
Keeping a clean sheet has not been as easy for Claude Puel’s men lately, and six of their eight PL away matches have seen both teams score. However, Leicester matches have seen over 2.5 total goals scored in just 43.75% (seven) of 16 PL matches – the third-lowest percentage in the league.
Players to watch: James McArthur has scored two in Crystal Palace’s last three PL matches, which is the same per-match tally that James Maddison currently has for Leicester.
Stat attack: PL matches at Selhurst Park have produced 2.86 yellow cards on average this season.
Relevantly, Leicester ended both of last season’s H2H encounters with ten men.
In the last six H2H matches, 59% of the goals have been scored in the second half.
Leicester have been behind in half of their eight PL away games – the joint-highest tally of half-time deficits among current top-half teams.
