CRYSTAL Palace dished out two heavy beatings to Leicester last season and will be calling up those happy memories as they try to improve on their poor recent form.

But the Eagles are struggling so badly for victories at present that the logical bet here is an away win, which would pile further pressure on Palace manager Roy Hodgson.

A 2-0 success against Burnley at the start of this month was Palace’s only league win since September and they are firmly entrenched in the ‘mini league’ of seven teams at the bottom of the Premier League table from which the three relegated clubs are likely to be identified.

Leicester do not have such worries, being in a typical Claude Puel position of ninth, and their home and away records this season are identical in terms of results – three wins, three defeats and two draws.

The Foxes were beaten for the first time in eight games last weekend by Tottenham and none of their defeats this season has come against a team currently below them in the table.

We are backing that to continue and think Leicester can edge a narrow victory that may leave Hodgson concerned for his job prospects as Christmas draws closer.

Prediction: over 1.5 match goals
