Crystal Palace vs Leicester City Betting Preview | 3 Nov 2019

Booking their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s EFL Cup to top off what has been a very eye-catching week, Leicester will look to keep up their stellar start when they travel to Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Securing a record-equalling 9-0 romp away at Southampton last weekend, a result that sent shockwaves across England, the Foxes are enjoying a three-match winning run across all competitions and have been the Premier League’s surprise package entering November.

On the flip side, while the mood in Brendan Rodgers’ camp may remain at a high, they’re not the only side who have continued to impress since opening the 2019/2020 campaign.

Climbing up to sixth and losing just one of their last five Premier League appearances, Roy Hodgson’s men will also be boosted by their continued success against Sunday’s guests.

Including landing a 4-1 win when the two sides met back in February, the Eagles have won each of their last four matches against Leicester and a similar outcome can be found at 12/5 with Bet365.

Palace continue to shine

Battling from two goals down to snatch a point away at Arsenal on Sunday, former England boss Roy Hodgson has plenty of positives to take away after an eye-catching start to the new campaign.

Aside from a 2-0 loss against defending champions Manchester City a fortnight ago, Palace are unbeaten in their other four Premier League appearances and still find themselves flirting with Europe.

Sat with a two-point buffer over Manchester United heading into November, the Eagles are enjoying their brightest start in recent memory and you might be interested to know that Hodgson’s men can be found at 7/4 with 888Sport to land their first top half finish since 2015.

Now bagging a pair of strikes in three of their last four appearances, one man to keep an eye out for on Sunday could be leading marksman, Jordan Ayew.

Scoring the equalizer against Arsenal last weekend, the former Swansea striker has two in his last three and will once again lead Palace’s charge on Sunday.

You might be interested to know that Ayew can be found at 11/5 with William Hill to extend on his recent purple patch at Selhurst Park.

Leicester – The Champions League contenders?

Putting nine past Southampton on the road last weekend and with an EFL Cup quarter-final to look forward to later in the month, the mood around the King Power only continues to soar.

Winning each of their last three matches across all formats, Brendan Rodgers’ men have continued to make a statement, despite seeing Harry Maguire leave over the summer.

Holding a four-point buffer from slipping out of the top-four entering November and sat just two points adrift of the defending champions, you might be interested to know that Rodgers’ men can be found at 7/4 with Ladbrokes to land a Champions League return this season.

Unsurprisingly, one man to watch out for this weekend will be Leicester’s red-hot leading marksman, Jamie Vardy.

Leaving St. Mary’s with one of the match balls alongside Ayoze Pérez, the 32-year-old has continued to lead Leicester’s European charge this season and has now bagged six Premier League strikes in his last four appearances.

Vardy can be found at 23/20 with Paddy Power to once again find the net on Sunday afternoon.
