Premier League Preview: Leicester City Vs. Crystal Palace

Leicester City continues to try and close the gap with Man. U for second place and face the Eagles today at 20:00 GMT.

Leicester City will be looking to close the gap for second place in the Premier League as they welcome Crystal Palace to King Power Stadium tonight. The Foxes currently reside in third place in the league, with a chance to pull within five points of second-place Manchester United with a win tonight against Crystal Palace. 

The Eagles are currently in 13th position and are 11 points clear of the relegation zone. 

Leicester has been in great form recently, as they successfully fought their way into the FA Cup final after a 1-0 win over Southampton. This feat was followed by a 3-0 romping over West Brom Albion on Thursday. By beating the Baggies, the Foxes walked into the third position, one point over the Blues in fourth, with a game in hand. 

This match is an opportunity for Leicester to put more space between themselves and the rest of the Top 4-chasers. 

The home advantage has not been that kind to the Foxes, as they have actually dropped seven of their sixteen home matches, but, in their last home match against the Eagles, they won 3-0. 

Palace has been on quite a long break and hasn't actually been in action since losing at home to Chelsea on April 10. They have only won one of their last six Premier League matches but are staying clear of the relegation area. 

Prediction

Tonight is a huge game for Leicester and they will be playing to get a match clear of those chasing the Top 3. With Chelsea hot on their tails, the Foxes will need to get a string of a few wins going. Expect a big win tonight to the tune of 4-1.
