A faltering Leicester City side will resume their look for a primary win since lockdown once they welcome Crystal Palace to the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The Foxes still sit third within the Premier League table but are winless in four games, while Palace enter the competition on the rear of successive defeats.
Burnley ran out 1-0 winners at Selhurst Park to leapfrog Palace within the table and every one but end their European football qualification hopes.
Leicester haven’t won, in any competition, since football returned and further dropped points could severely threaten their Champions League position.
Leicester haven’t quite looked themselves since the restart, while Crystal Palace are looking up,
instead of down, after an honest return to the pitch. Honours even at the King Power.
Only rock-bottom Norwich have scored fewer, and that they have drawn a blank in 12 matches throughout the campaign, including the last two.
Even if they’re not pushing for it themselves, Palace could find yourself having as big a say on the top-four race as anyone with matches against Leicester,
Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur to return in five of their six remaining games this season.
The Eagles are going to be underdogs heading into this one considering that Leicester’s home points tally has only been bettered by three teams this season,
although they need only won two of their last eight at the King Power Stadium while Palace have a good record on the road.
