Team news

Palace head to the Midlands having won just two of their past nine away league matches.

Striker Christian Benteke is fit again after missing the recent matches with Liverpool and Burnley.

Defenders James Tomkins (thigh) and and Martin Kelly (calf), plus midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp (hip) are still sidelined.

Leicester midfielder James Maddison is a doubt after aggravating his hip in midweek.


Roy Hodgson

"They’re a good team. There’s no doubt about that. The fact is they might not have won their last couple of games. But the season is always going to contain ups and downs, periods where you pick up points and there are periods where things don’t go so well and other teams catch you up.

"They do have some very, very good players, they’ve been well managed by Brendan [Rodgers] as well and with six games to go they’ve got everything to play for with a Champions League place.

"It’s a nice place to go and play, and they are a very good footballing team who ask lots of questions of you. As far as I’m concerned, it’s another game in these last six games we’ve got left and I look forward to it, going to a lovely stadium to play a good team."
