Crystal Palace vs Leicester City predictions: Crystal Palace line-up

Crystal Palace are placed 13th in the table after 26 games so far this season. Roy Hodgson’s side have struggled recently and have won just two games in 2019. A victory on Saturday against 12th-placed Leicester City will close the gap between the pair to just 2 points.

Team news

Palace have been quite fortunate on the injury front with just three players out. Pape Souare, Julian Speroni and Connor Wickham are the only absentees and Roy Hodgson has the rest of his squad at his disposal.

Probable Crystal Palace XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Roy Hodgson

Vincente Guaita (GK)

The summer recruit from Getafe has started the last two games and is set to continue in goal ahead of Wayne Hennessey.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB)

The 21-year-old has been a revelation this season and his performances have been noteworthy. He will start at right-back.

James Tomkins (CB)

The former West Ham man has played 22 games so far this season under Roy Hodgson and should continue on Saturday against Leicester.

Mamadou Sakho (CB)

Sakho has played every single minute in the league for Palace this season and the weekend’s game should not be any different. He should start next to Tomkins in central defence.

Patrick van Aanholt (LB)

The Dutchman has played every game this season for Palace and there’s no reason why he wouldn’t continue to do so on Saturday.

James McArthur (CM)

The 31-year-old, like Sakho and van Aanholt, has played every game this season and should start in a 3-man midfield.

Luka Milivojevic (CDM)

The skipper has scored 7 goals so far this season and should start next to McArthur in central midfield.

Chiekhou Kouyate (CM)

Kouyate has had his place in the side rotated with Jeffrey Schlupp but the Senegalese could start ahead of Schlupp on Saturday.

Andros Townsend (RW)

The former Tottenham winger has played every game for Roy Hodgson this season and has scored three goals and picked up four assists so far. He should start on the right wing again on Saturday.

Wilfried Zaha (LW)

Zaha has been Palace’s main man and has scored 5 goals and picked up 5 assists this season. Zaha missed the FA Cup tie due to a suspension but he will start on the left wing against Leicester this weekend.

Michy Batshuayi (ST)

After two substitute appearances against Fulham and West Ham, Batshuayi could start up front for Palace ahead of Christian Benteke and Jordan Ayew.
