Leicester are playing at home against Crystal Palace in search of first win in the Premier League since 1 January. The Foxes have lost four of the previous five games in the league, earning just one point as a guest of Liverpool. At the same time, Crystal Palace have a good period, winning eight from possible 18 points. The transfer of Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea and the returning of Christian Benteke give more options for the attack of the team, and the results were not delayed. The Eagles are still in the fight for avoiding relegation, but at this moment it looks like they are capable of staying in the league.
What’s going on in Leicester is about to cost Claude Puel’s job, but his team’s performance is far from as bad as the results show. The bad run of The Foxes includes games against teams that are in the top half of the table – Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester United and Wolverhampton. In none of these fixtures Leicester didn’t perform bad, and it will not be a reach if we say that they deserved the three points against the Spurs and The Reds. Leicester allow mistakes in defence but in an attack, they are playing fantastically, and it’s time for them to score their chances for goals. We think that The Foxes will end their band run on Saturday and will win against Crystal Palace, but not without conceding a goal.
