Crystal Palace vs Leicester: Premier League – LIVE!

Leicester have the chance to go within a point of the top of the Premier League table as they visit Crystal Palace this afternoon. 

Brendan Rodgers’ men are flying high and can close the gap on leaders Liverpool after the champions were held to a 1-1 draw by struggling West Brom on Sunday. 

Palace, meanwhile, are looking to bounce back from a couple of hefty defeats, having conceded ten goals in their last two matches without scoring one themselves. 

The Eagles were thumped 7-0 by Liverpool before losing 3-0 against ten-man Aston Villa on Boxing Day. 

There will sadly be no fans in attendance this afternoon, with London stuck under strict Tier 4 coronavirus restrictions.
