Leicester City vs Crystal Palace- Betting Tips and Predictions

16 December, 2017, 19:23 | Author: Cary Erickson
  • Luka Milivojevic will serve a one-match suspension for Crystal Palace

"I am surprised though he has picked up five yellow cards (earning the suspension) because he is a gentle giant, so I'd love to know how he picked up the previous cards". Ahmed Musa was left out of the matchday squad.

Palace's first away goal since April was followed by two more for Wilfried Zaha and Bakary Sako, but Benteke, speaking to Sky Sports after the match, rejected suggestions he needed to deliver for his colleagues.

The Foxes, who so impressively dismantled Puel's former club Southampton in midweek, remain eighth in the table, while Palace rise four places to 14th - though the teams below them are yet to play this weekend.

The Belgian striker broke his duck with a trademark header from Andros Townsend's cross on the right to put Palace ahead on 19 minutes.

Palace started confidently and threatened the Leicester goal through Jeffrey Schlupp and Ruben Loftus-Cheek inside the first 11 minutes. While Palace have played significantly better lately, they still struggle to score goals.

Benteke conceded he was feeling the pressure at going so long without a goal.

And 60 seconds later they found themselves down to 10 men, Ndidi picking up his second bookable offence and an unwanted red card on his birthday for a blatant dive inside the penalty area.

Four minutes into the second half, Riyad Mahrez nearly scored for Leicester only to see Speroni get down superbly and palmed his low shot from nestling into the bottom right corner.

Riyad Mahrez gave the ball away inside the Palace half and Benteke led a rapid counterattack before slipping in Zaha, who turned Ben Chilwell inside out and emphatically fired a low finish into the bottom corner.

Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for the player and it has been claimed that Besiktas recently rejected a lucrative offer from the Eagles for Tosun.

And in the 94th minute, Sako made it 3-0 to Palace to complete the impressive win for the visitors.
