Leicester will be determined to get their season back on track when they welcome Crystal Palace to the King Power Stadium for Saturday’s Premier League clash.
The Foxes have only claimed two points from a possible nine since football was resumed following lockdown, extending a disappointing run that has returned just two wins in 11 matches in all competitions.
Having run out 2-0 winners in November’s reverse encounter at Selhurst Park, they are 8/13 (1.62) favourites with bet365 to bounce back by coming out on top here.
However, Roy Hodgson’s team had won each of the previous four meetings between the sides prior to November’s clash, and can be backed at 5/1 (6.00) to regain the upper hand with another victory.
There has only been one draw in the last 11 clashes between this duo, but you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on this one finishing up all square.
Daniel Amartey and Ricardo Pereira remain the only absentees for the hosts, as they struggle with long-term achilles and ankle injuries respectively.
Martin Kelly, James Tomkins and Jeffery Schlupp are all unlikely to feature due to injury, although Christian Benteke could be available after recovering from a muscle strain.
Just two goals in the four matches since play resumed suggests Brendan Rodgers’ men are struggling for fluency, while the fact they have found the net in the first hald just once in 11 fixtures shows a team failing to hit the ground running in games.
This could be a problem against an Eagles side that has conceded before half-time in just three of their previous 10 matches, albeit scoring themselves just four times in that period.
All in all, odds of 11/10 (2.10) look too good to pass up on the majority of the goals arriving after the break for the sixth meeting in eight between Leicester and Palace.
