Premier League Preview: Crystal Palace v Leicester City

Brendan Rodgers’ side were held to a 2-2 Boxing Day draw with Manchester United at the King Power and three points in this would take them back to second.

Despite such a hectic run of recent matches, Rodgers is expected to stick with the same starting team with Ayoze Perez the only likely change.

As for Palace, Roy Hodgson will be worried by his team’s recent dip in form, with just one win in five heading into this.

The former England coach has no new updates on the injury front with Gary Cahill, Mamadou Sakho and Connor Wickham still out.

But James McCarthy and Andros Townsend could return to the side as Hodgson looks to turn their fortunes around.

And Kick Off in this one is set for 3pm on December 28th at Selhurst Park.

Leicester City edge out 1-0 Premier League win over Wolves

Jamie Vardy’s first half penalty proved the difference on afternoon of limited chances at both ends with the Foxes boosting their Top Four chances on home soil.

Neither side created much in a tight opening at the King Power, with Leicester given a real helping hand with their opener.

Dennis Praet’s driven cross hit Matt Kilman on the hand inside the box and after a long VAR check, referee Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot.

Vardy has one of best penalty records in the Premier League and the former England man was never in danger as he confidently tucked past Rui Patricio.

But if Leicester’s first spot kick was a controversial one, Taylor awarded them a more straightforward one before the break as Rayan Alt-Nouri tripped James Justin.

However, Vardy’s consistent record was to be dented as his second attempt was a poor one and Patricio made a scrambling stop.

Leicester picked the momentum up after the break as Vardy tested Patricio with a fierce drive and James Maddison fired wide.

But despite struggling to make any inroads on Leicester, Wolves did almost nick a point late on.

Ruben Neves’ spectacular drive looked destine for the top corner but Kasper Schmeichel reacted brilliantly with cat like reflexes to make a game winning stop.

Leicester City seal impressive 4-2 Premier League home win against Burnley

The Foxes took a while to get going at the King Power, but two quick fire second half goals secured all three points for Rodgers.

Burnley actually started the brighter of the two sides, as Chris Wood volleyed home the opening goal on 10 minutes.

However, Leicester showed their class with a quick response, as Harvey Barnes started and finished a flowing Foxes attack.

The England international fed in Jamie Vardy on the edge of the box, and instead of admiring his pass, he strode on to the return ball to fire past Nick Pope.

That goal swung the game in Leicester’s favour and they simply had too much for Burnley after the break.

Timothy Castagne’s wicked cross forced an own goal from Erik Pieters, before James Justin reacted quickest to some pinball inside the box to make it 3-1.

The Clarets did look to make a fight off it in the final 15 minutes as debutant Jimmy Dunne headed past Kasper Schmeichel.

But with the hosts in no mood to let the win slip away, Belgian international Denis Praet crash home a superb winner.
