Leicester City vs Crystal Palace 16 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

The English Premier League continues this weekend as Crystal Palace travels north to take on Leicester City. Both teams are coming of wins and are playing some good football so we should be able to watch a really high quality game.

Leicester City have won two games in a row and are once again looking like they are a very good side. This side always had talent but it seems like the talented players are turning up and putting on good performances again. Mahrez had shown his class and although there are many rumors about him leaving the club in January, he needs to stand up and lead the team once again. This team can score goals but the defense is a little problem which they will need to fix since Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha has been causing many problems to defenses in the Premier League.

On the other side of the coin, Crystal Palace are starting to pick up some vital points which are helping him get out of the relegation zone. This is a great side and the experience of their manager has helped them to get some wins. This will be another important game for the Eagles since a win here will boost them a long way up the ladder to a much more comfortable position.

With all that in mind, I am going to predict that this match ends as a draw.  Both sides are playing well but with the busy schedules of the two sides, I think that neither side will be good enough to get the win. We are getting a really good price on the draw and due to that reason I am going to suggest that to be the bet for this game.
