Crystal Palace vs Leicester: The Eagles and Foxes both find themselves in the bottom half of the Premier League table ahead of their clash at Selhurst Park on Sunday (Watch live at 9 am ET, on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Patrick Vieira’s tenure as Crystal Palace boss began with just two points from their first three games, but the side largely rebuilt in the summer doubled its output with a 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur and a 1-1 draw with overachieving Brighton & Hove Albion. In a word, things are pleasant in south London.
The same cannot be said in the east Midlands, where Leicester are winless in their last three Premier League fixtures. A disappointing draw with Crystal Palace last weekend is the best that Brendan Rodgers’ side could muster of late. Jamie Vardy is firing on all cylinders with five goals from six games, but only two other Leicester players (Youri Tielemans and Marc Albrighton) have scored.

Midweek Europa League action will again weigh heavily on Leicester as the game goes on. Selhurst Park is already a difficult enough place to visit and take a positive result, and Leicester certainly won’t enjoy the energy and intensity with which Vieira’s side press and defends. Crystal Palace 2-1 Leicester.
