Leicester City will take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this weekend hoping to continue their outstanding start to this Premier League campaign. The Foxes could go above Manchester City in the league table if they can secure a win against the Eagles, so Brendan Rodgers will be desperate for the three points this weekend.
The East Midlands outfit will set themselves up in a 4-1-4-1 formation with most of their first-team starters set to come back after being rested in midweek.
4-1-4-1 Leicester City Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace
Kasper Schmeichel will lineup in goal for the Foxes once again after being rested in their midweek win over Burton Albion in the EFL Cup. The centre-back duo of Çağlar Söyüncü and Jonny Evans will resume their defensive partnership at the heart of Rodgers’ backline. Both defenders have enjoyed a rich vein of form at the back for Leicester this season so they will be confident about keeping things tight versus Palace this weekend.
Ricardo Pereira is a nailed-on starter on the right side of the back four while Ben Chilwell assumes the duties of the left-back. The Foxes have currently got the joint best defensive record in the division after shipping in only eight goals in ten matches this term.
Wilfred Ndidi will act as the defensive lynchpin in midfield as he dedicates himself to breakdown the opposition attacks. Both James Maddison and Youri Tielemans will operate in a more advanced role at the centre of the park looking to dictate play and create some decent openings going forward.
Ayoze Perez will come into this clash after bagging a hattrick versus Southampton last weekend. He will fancy his chances of scoring while operating down the right flank. Harvey Barnes could get another opportunity to impress on the left side of the Leicester midfield.
Both Dennis Praet and Marc Albrighton will have to be content with a spot on the bench. However, they might get a chance to make an impact if Rodgers decides to call upon their services.
Jamie Vardy will spearhead the Leicester attack up top following his hattrick against the Saints last weekend. He is a striker at the top of his game, so we can expect him to be Rodgers’ most lethal weapon in the offensive end of the field.
Kelechi Iheanacho will be a part of the Foxes bench and could come on to make an impact versus the Eagles if needed.
