Crystal Palace will have the tough job of hosting league leaders Leicester City in a game which the Eagles will feel like they are massive underdogs in. Both teams will have a ton to play for when the players hit the pitch on Saturday at Selhurst Park so I will be very excited to see how this game goes.

Leicester City have been in fine form and they will feel good heading into this game since they are playing much better football than their opponents and they are managing to win all their games as well. The end is within sight for this title race and Leicester City will know that this situation may never come up again for this club so I know how much everyone involved with the Foxes will want this win. The determination and heart of this team is amazing and I think they deserve to get a few results go their way so I am backing them in this away match.

Crystal Palace on the other hand have been shocking when it comes to the EPL this year and although I think they will stay up, they will need to improve. Things are looking poor at the moment and this match will be tough on the but I think they will fight hard and hopefully they can show what they are made of. Nevertheless, I am expecting them to lose at home here.

As far as betting is concerned for this match, I think the best option is to take the outright result here. We are getting a great price on the away side and it should be a pretty safe bet throughout. I think Leicester are an amazing team and we should give them some respect and take them as our pick in this game. 

Pick:
Leicester City
