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

The 75-year-old is back in charge of the Eagles after Patrick Vieira was sacked, with Palace just three points off the relegation zone and possessing the joint-worst attacking record in the Premier League this season.

Leicester are two points worse off and sit 17th in the table, firmly in a relegation battle that looks certain to go down to the wire. The Foxes have lost five and drawn one of their last six matches in all competitions.

Date, kick-off time and venue

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.
