Roy Hodgson today makes his second bow in the Crystal Palace dugout as Leicester make the trip to Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace vs Leicester prediction

The return of Hodgson will surely give Palace some sort of lift, though it’s unlikely to bring a swift return to goalscoring form.

Neither side are convincing at all and with it likely to be a tense encounter with so much on the line, the points could well be shared.

Draw, 1-1.
