Leicester City at Crystal Palace Team News, Starting XI Predictions


leicester city

Sunday doesn’t have a true Premier League headliner fixture this week. Sure, Tottenham Hotspur at Everton would have been, if these two sides were coming close to living up to spending they did this summer, but that’s not the case.

Leicester City at Crystal Palace is actually the better match-up, and it’s sneaky good. You have the fourth place side visiting the ninth, much better than 11th place coming to play at the 16th. So let’s break down the Foxes at the Eagles, two clubs that have cheerleaders, a rarity in the Premier League.

Team News:

The only fitness concern for Leicester is midfielder Matty James (calf), who is out indefinitely. For Palace,  goalkeeper Vicente Guaita (groin) is a doubt due to a groin issue.

Defender Mamahdou Sakho (match fitness) and forward Connor Wickham (also match fitness) are out.

Starting XI Predictions:

Leicester City


Barnes                 Perez

Maddison    Ndidi    Tielemans

Chilwell       Soyuncu       Evans       Pereira



Crystal Palace


Zaha    Townsend

MacArthur       Milivojevic

Van Aanholt      Cahill     Tomkins     Waard
