Crystal Palace will look to continue their strong recent form with a win against Leicester City.
The Eagles travel to the King Power Stadium on the back of their qualification to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Last time out, Roy Hodgson’s men put Doncaster Rovers to the sword with a 2-0 win.
Leicester, meanwhile, last played two weeks ago in the Premier League. Claude Puel saw his side turn in a valiant display at Tottenham Hotspur but could not inspire the Foxes to a result, as they came away with a 3-1 defeat to ponder.
Palace will be forced to contend with some injury problems on Saturday, as Martin Kelly and Aaron Wan-Bissaka look set to miss out.
Here’s how we expect Hodgson to set his side out against Leicester.
Guaita is set to get the nod ahead of Wayne Hennessey, who played against Doncaster.
With Wan-Bissaka ruled out for this game, Ward is likely to come in at right-back.
Martin Kelly has always been dependable but with him sidelined, Tomkins is set to start, as per usual.
Sakho is in line to partner Tomkins in central defence against Leicester.
Patrick van Aanholt
Van Aanholt is a mainstay in the starting line-up and will play at left-back.
Milivojevic is expected to operate as the deepest of the three central midfielders and will wear the captain’s armband.
Meyer was impressive against Doncaster. Hodgson surely won’t overlook his creative qualities for the trip to Leicester.
Schlupp has been productive in a midfield role and could be given the nod again this weekend.
On the right-hand side, it is likely that Townsend will continue to play.
Zaha is expected to occupy the opposite flank and will look to cause Ricardo Pereira some problems.
Hodgson could be tempted to play Michy Batshuayi, but after his haphazard showing at Doncaster, he may need more time. Therefore, Benteke could get the nod.
