High-flying Foxes will bid to down the Eagles...
<div><div><div><div id=":tw"><div id=":sb"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Crystal Palace v Leicester</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday, November 3, at Selhurst Park</strong></a></p><p>Leicester will carry considerable momentum into this game after they thrashed Southampton 9-0 at St Mary’s on Friday night. The Foxes will have had plenty of time to recover from that record-breaking victory and they should feel confident in their ability to get a result in this game. Apart from their draw with Wolves on the opening day of the season, no team outside of the so-called Big Six has taken points off Leicester. Brendan Rodgers men are now third in the table and they look perfectly capable of securing a top four finish, but they will need to be at their best in order to see off a strong, stubborn Crystal Palace side.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Leicester have a very settled starting 11 this season. Veteran keeper Kasper Schmeichel is between the sticks, with Jonny Evans and the ever-improving Çağlar Söyüncü at centre-back and Ben Chilwell and Ricardo Perreira at full-back. Wilfried Ndidi screens the defence, allowing young playmakers James Maddison and Youri Tielemans to wreak havoc higher up the pitch. Harvey Barnes and Ayoze Perez occupy the flanks and Jamie Vardy leads the line with aplomb. The Foxes have a midweek EFL Cup game against Burton to content with, but Rodgers will probably rest key men for that and then roll out his big guns against Palace on Sunday.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>The Eagles are also enjoying a strong season under Roy Hodgson. They found themselves 2-0 down against Arsenal at The Emirates on Sunday, but battled back to secure a 2-2 draw. That kept them sixth in the table, just one point behind the Gunners. Wilfried Zaha is the main danger man for Palace and he wins plenty of penalties, which the ice-cool Luka Milivojević gleefully converts. Andros Townsend is also capable of the odd moment of magic, while Jordan Ayew keeps Christian Benteke out of the team. Crystal Palace have no new injury concerns, and both managers should be able to field their strongest teams on Sunday.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>When you see odds of 2.25 (5/4) on a team that just won 9-0, it simply looks too good to ignore. However, Crystal Palace have only lost once at home this season, so you might want to cover yourself with a draw no bet option. It is interesting to note that Palace have won their last four games against Leicester, often by heavy margins, but this is a brave new era for the Foxes under Rodgers and they will be keen to reverse that trend on Sunday. They have the quality and the confidence to pull it off.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betfair">Leicester to win at 2/25 (5/4) with Betfair</a>; <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="William Hill">both teams to score at 1.85 (17/20) with William Hill</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
