Leicester welcome Crystal Palace to the King Power Stadium on Sunday with both sides looking to strengthen their credentials for a top-half finish.

The two head into the weekend sitting tenth and ninth respectively in the Premier League table, though the Foxes have played two games fewer than the Eagles.

Brendan Rodgers' men have one eye on their European campaign - they drew 0-0 with PSV in the first leg of their Europa Conference League quarter-final and will reconvene in Eindhoven next week - while Patrick Vieira's side have a FA Cup semi-final to look forward to.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of this one.

Leicester City team news

While Rodgers will likely rotate where he can in order to protect his players for their Europa Conference League run, he doesn't have much wriggle room to do so.

Wilfred Ndidi and Ryan Bertrand are both out for the season, while Jamie Vardy is not expected to return to action until later this month.

Ayoze Perez and Caglar Soyuncu are expected to overcome bouts of illness to be fit for Sunday's match, while Boubakary Soumare and Nampalys Mendy are hoping to shake off muscle problems.


Crystal Palace team news

Nathan Ferguson and Michael Olise are the only absentees for Palace, with Vieira revealing in his press conference that he hopes the French winger will be available in time to take on Chelsea at Wembley next weekend.

Ferguson has hit a setback in his recovery from a thigh issue and could be out for a little longer.


Leicester City vs Crystal Palace score prediction

By pretty much all accounts, these are two evenly-matched teams who like to play positive football and boast plenty of difference makers.

For every Wilfried Zaha there's a Harvey Barnes, a James Maddison for an Eberechi Eze, Marc Guehi for Wesley Fofana.

It'll be an entertaining match no doubt, but there probably won't be anything to separate these sides.

Prediction: Leicester 2-2 Crystal Palace
