Leicester City host Crystal Palace on Saturday lunchtime in a meeting between two of the Premier League's slow starters.

The Foxes have lost seven of their last eight Premier League matches, failing to build upon their first win of the campaign against Nottingham Forest by losing to Bournemouth last weekend.

Crystal Palace ended their six-week wait for victory by overturning an early deficit against Leeds United on Sunday.

Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming encounter between the two sides.

Leicester team news

Despite ample warning from Nigeria's medical department, Wilfred Ndidi was swiftly ushered back into Leicester's starting XI only to aggravate a hamstring strain. The midfielder is expected to be out for another fortnight.

Both full-backs Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand are long-term absentees while fellow defender Timothy Castagne suffered an injury to his eye socket during last weekend's defeat to Bournemouth. However, the Belgium international is expected to recover by Saturday, as is Nampalys Mendy, who has been sidelined after a clash of knees in training.

Leicester Starting 11 (4-1-4-1): Ward; Justin, Evans, Faes, Thomas; Soumare; Maddison, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes; Daka.

Crystal Palace team news

Patrick Vieira revealed that 'it'll be a couple of weeks' until Nathaniel Clyne is available again after going to hospital to treat an ankle injury. The timescale of Nathan Ferguson's recovery from his latest fitness setback isn't anywhere near as kind, with the full-back targeting Boxing Day as a return date.

Jack Butland has returned to training after nursing a fractured wrist but both James McArthur and Chris Richards are set to continue their interminable spell on the sidelines.

Crystal Palace predicted lineup vs Leicester

Crystal Palace Starting 11 (4-3-3): Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Schlupp; Olise, Doucoure, Eze; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha.
Bench: Johnstone, Mitchell, Milivojevic, Tomkins, Mateta, Hughes, Ebiowei, Riedewald, Gordon.


Leicester vs Crystal Palace score prediction

Brendan Rodgers lamented the complacency that seeped into his side against Bournemouth last weekend as their lack of aggression 'against the ball' let the Cherries back into the contest.

Despite ultimately losing, Leeds United demonstrated that Palace can struggle against a high press. The question remains, however, whether Rodgers still has the ability to cajole a coordinated approach out of the division's bottom side.

The Leicester hierarchy clearly feels he does - for now at least - and their faith may be rewarded if the Foxes can replicate the verve from their last home outing.

Prediction: Leicester 2-1 Crystal Palace
