Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Preview, Prediction, Latest H2H record: Premier League 2021/22, Gameweek 7
The Eagles and the Foxes will collide this weekend in what will be a fascinating match-up between Brendan Rodgers and Patrick Vieira in the top flight. And Alley Sport brings you the Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Preview, Prediction, Latest H2H record from the gameweek just before the October international break in the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.
Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Preview
Leicester City would be hoping to recapture the olden days when they won the Premier League in 2016. If not that, they would certainly want a repeat of last season when they were in the top four for a majority of the campaign until Chelsea edged them on gameweek 38. That hasn’t been the case this time around for them, and just like Crystal Palace, they are underperforming when compared to their fans’ expectations.
The Foxes would have wanted to challenge for European spots from the get-go. 2 wins from 6 games isn’t something Brendan Rodgers’ would be proud of but Patrick Vieira’s unimpressive and inexperienced Crystal Palace are the perfect opponents for them to kickstart their season and go into the international break with a positive result as they look to challenge for UCL spots.
On the other hand, Crystal Palace may well be battling relegation under Patrick Vieira. The Arsenal legend was given a hefty transfer sum to spend in the summer and got in exciting young players. But their form has been rancid, with their only win in the league coming after a Tottenham Hotspur player was sent off in their match against each other. With just 1 win from 6, they may be headed for the drop. A win against Leicester will surely change the mood around the club, however.
Leicester City vs Crystal Palace H2H Record
The two teams have met each other 75 times in the past and encounters between the two have been very common in the past decade considering both teams have solidified their status as a Premier League team during that time. Leicester just edge out Palace in H2H record with 29 wins to their opponents’ 27, while 17 games have been drawn.
Leicester have been unbeaten in their last four games against Crystal Palace, but lost four games in a row against them before that. This is certainly a tough one to predict by that logic.
