Leicester City FC plays host to Crystal Palace FC on Saturday evening in a vital Premier League clash. With every passing week, the pressure on Leicester appears to grow as they are in a worst possible form. They have only managed one point of their last five league games and are just eight points above the relegation zone. Meanwhile, the visitors are just two points clear the danger zone.
With both the teams fighting for all the three points, Leicester City Vs Crystal Palace is one not to miss on Saturday.

Leicester will be at full strength on Saturday evening. Their ace striker Jamie Vardy is expected to make a return to the starting lineup. After making a huge impression on his debut against Tottenham Hotspur FC, new recruit Youri Tielemans could feature in starting XI for the hosts.
The visitors as well are in a similar position to Leicester. They have a full strength squad to go with on Saturday except for left-back Pape Souare. Pape is still recovering from his shoulder injury. James Tomkins is expected to return after missing two previous games with a calf strain. Wilfried Zaha will be back on the squad following completion of his suspension.
Looking back at their previous 70 meetings, there’s nothing to separate these two teams in head to head tier. Each side has 26 wins, with the remaining 18 games ending in a draw. Crystal have secured victory in their last three meetings with Leicester. Last April, Crystal humiliated Leicester with a 5-0 victory.
Here’s how these two teams have performed in their last five games in all competitions.
