Leicester City host Crystal Palace on Saturday, July 4th at the King Power Stadium in what is going to be a very tight encounter between both sides.
Leicester City has not been in the best of form since the return of the Premier League, not winning a match yet. Leicester lost to Everton on Wednesday in a match which was determined super early. Everton went 2-0 up in the first 16 minutes of the match and just defended the win until the game finished 2-1. Leicester are a much better side than Everton and they should have performed better on Wednesday. The foxes are lucky that they are still 3rd in the Premier League as Chelsea failed to win against West Ham, a win which would have taken them to 3rd in the league. Leicester cannot afford any more slip ups as teams such as Manchester United are looking to get into the mix in the top 5, and if Leicester want to play in the Champions League next season, they need to start winning some matches.
Crystal Palace played a tight first half against Burnley earlier in the week, however, a Ben Mee 62nd minute goal allowed Burnley to run away with the 3 points. Palace is a solid team on their day and they can challenge good teams. However, since the restart of the Premier League, they have not had any positive results. Palace have nothing to play for as they are safe from relegation, and they are too far from the European spots.
Leicester City won the reverse fixture last year 2-0 in what was an easy victory for the foxes. However, since the restart of the Premier League, Leicester have not been in top form. This is going to be a tighter match in my opinion, and I don't see Leicester being too dominant. I rather see Leicester clinching a victory, perhaps with a 1-0 or 2-1 scoreline. That's why I suggest taking Leicester ML as it is hard to predict how the foxes will play as of recent. -155 on the Leicester ML should be a good option if playing in a parlay.
