Leicester travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace
Leicester City and Crystal Palace will look to boost middling starts to the Premier League season as they play one another at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace host their East Midlands visitors just six days on from relinquishing two points late on against Brighton having seemingly been set to secure all three.
They have just one win under new manager Patrick Vieira but will be eyeing a second at home against a side having their own difficulties so far.
Jamie Vardy’s double secured Leicester a point against Burnley last time out but Brendan Rodgers’ side have so far seemed a step below the level that saw them miss out on a Champions League place by a single point in the 2021-22 season.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League fixture:
When is it?
The match will kick-off at 2pm BST on Sunday 3 October at Selhurst Park.
Where can I watch?
The match will be shown live on Sky Sports’ Main Event and Premier League channels, with coverage on the latter beginning at 1pm.
Subscribers can watch the game via the website or Sky Go app, or, if you aren’t a Sky customer, you can grab a NOWTV Day Pass here to watch without a subscription.
Crystal Palace’s two long-term absentees are Nathan Ferguson and Eberechi Eze, with neither likely to be back before late November. Vieira could look to include Cheikhou Kouyate in midfield but otherwise may pick an unchanged team.
Jonny Evans did not travel to Poland due to an illness but is apparently over a troublesome foot injury, and may start. Kelechi Iheanacho has had an eventful week after an immigration snafu prevented him from taking part in the Legia Warsaw game in which Rodgers rested much of his first-choice side. James Maddison’s exclusion from that game could be indicative and the creative midfielder might just return having been benched against Burnley.
Crystal Palace: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Milivojevic, McArthur; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha
Leicester: Schmeichel; Ricardo, Evans, Vestergaard, Chilwell; Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison; Lookman, Vardy, Barnes
Crystal Palace 21/10
A reasonably tough fixture to forecast with both sides generally struggling for rhythm, and it could go either way at Selhurst Park — a draw, then. Crystal Palace 1-1 Leicester
