Leicester will play Palace this Saturday, 16th of October. This is our grand update on the early kick-off fixture, covering most aspects of the game.

Leicester did get a bit of hope after Forest, but was back to usual faults vs. Bournemouth. Leicester will need to find back to that performance level vs. Forest and hopefully be able to bring in 3 points.

Still at the bottom, but a win could see Leicester climb into an area which would give some type of hope for a push and a climb in the games coming up.

Crystal Palace Football Club founded as a professional outfit in 1905, the club’s origins can be traced as far back as 1861, when an amateur Crystal Palace football team was established at the Crystal Palace Exhibition building. This has led to claims by the club that Crystal Palace should be recognised as the oldest professional football club in the world, after historians discovered a lineage through the Crystal Palace Company. Both the amateur and professional clubs played inside the grounds of the Palace, with the professional club using the FA Cup Final stadium for its home games until 1915, when they were forced to leave due to the outbreak of the First World War. In 1924, they moved to their current home at Selhurst Park, read more
