There will be action in the Premier League on Monday evening, as Leicester City will look to continue their excellent week with another three points. Crystal Palace will be looking to bounce back after defeat last time out.
Premier League Preview
Leicester City have enjoyed an excellent seven days or so. The Foxes have reached their first FA Cup final for 50 years, and also picked up a much-needed league win to enhance their chances of finishing the season in the Champions League places. There had been fears that history may have been repeating itself in the closing weeks of the season, as the Foxes went into their recent fixture against West Bromwich Albion having lost their last two games. However, the Foxes were superb against the struggling Baggies on Thursday evening, and were even better value for the win than the 3-0 success they recorded. Realistically, Leicester could have scored as many as they liked in that game, and they will be hoping that their lack of ruthlessness doesn’t come back to haunt them. Kelechi Iheanacho’s great scoring run continued, as he scored the third for Leicester, while Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans were also on the scoresheet.
Crystal Palace will just be playing for pride over the closing weeks of the season, as they have already secured their spot in the division next season. The Eagles have played like a side with little to play for over their last six games, as they have won just once. They have drawn three games over this run, and have lost on two occasions. Palace were beaten in their last fixture by Chelsea. The Blues wrapped up a comfortable 4-1 success, but Roy Hodgson will be hoping that his side can bounce back at the King Power Stadium.
