Crystal Palace vs Leicester City – #FACTATTACK


  • Crystal Palace have taken just four points from the last 36 available in the Barclays Premier League (W0 D4 L8).

  • Connor Wickham has scored four goals in his last two Premier League appearances.

  • Andy King has scored in his last two league appearances against Palace. He has also scored on two of his last three visits to Selhurst Park with the Foxes.

  • All four goals in this fixture since the two teams returned to the top flight have been scored between the 50th and 60th minutes.

  • Leicester have lost just five of their last 41 Premier League matches (W25 D11 L5) but four of those have been against London clubs (Arsenal 2, Chelsea & Spurs).

  • Claudio Ranieri’s team have the best away record in the top flight picking up 31 points so far.

  • Jamie Vardy needs one more goal to reach 20 league goals for the season. The last Leicester player to score 20 times in a top-flight season was Gary Lineker in 1984-85 (24 – no Leicester player has done it during the Premier League era).

  • Crystal Palace are the only side in the top four tiers in England yet to win in 2016.
