Leicester City will be pushing to solidify their place inside the Top Four on Monday night as Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace go to the King Power.

A win would give the Foxes a seven-point cushion inside the Champions League spots as they aim for a strong end to the campaign.

Brendan Rodgers has no fresh injuries to worry about, with Harvey Barnes and James Justin still sidelined, but he could rotate from their midweek win over West Brom.

Dennis Praet and Ayoze Perez both came off the bench against the Baggies and they could replace Luke Thomas and James Maddison in the starting XI.

As for Palace, Hodgson’s side need just four more points to rubber stamp their own safety.

And after taking a heavy defeat to Chelsea last time out, the former England boss could also spin his options with James McCarthy, Jeff Schlupp and Andros Townsend set to come back in.

And this one kicks off at 8pm on Monday night at the King Power Stadium.
