26 September 2014

ABOUT

Newly promoted Leicester City come into this game after a good opening month of life back in the top flight as they sit on eight points in seventh place in the Barclays Premier League. 

 

Nigel Pearson led his side to promotion after winning the Championship title in May and will be delighted with their start to the new campaign as they come to Selhurst Park looking for 

a third successive Premier League win. 

 

As well as that victory over United they have also drawn against Arsenal and returned with all three points from their trip to Stoke City. 

 

Striker Leonardo Ulloa is currently the second top striker in the League with five goals to his name, including a brace against Manchester United.

 

TEAM NEWS

Crystal Palace: After making changes for the midweek cup tie Neil Warnock will return to the squad who recorded the 3-2 victory at Everton last Sunday 
and hopes that striker Marouane Chamakh will be available after missing the last three games with a hamstring injury.  The Palace boss has no further injury
worries to be concerned about going into this meeting.

Leicester City: Nigel Pearson has a clean bill of health and it is likely that he will be naming the same eleven that were on duty in that win at The Walkers Stadium last weekend. 
United loanee Nick Powell wasn't available for that game but could be named in the squad for the trip to Selhurst Park.
