Crystal Palace v Leicester: match preview

Crystal Palace and Leicester have made an uncertain start to the season so this meeting could prove to be a crossroads. Leicester’s campaign has stalled with only two points from their past three games while they are also at risk of an early exit from the Europa League. Palace are beginning to show signs of finding their feet under Patrick Vieira and would be above Leicester in the table but for conceding a late equaliser against Brighton on Monday. Vieira’s side have lost only one of their past five home games against Leicester. Stephen Hollis
