Palace can enhance survival hopes by holding Leicester
Fluid Foxes have the attacking resources to claim point
Ninth-placed Leicester, who have little hope of European qualification and no fear of the drop, might seem like ideal opponents at this stage of the season.
But they have talented players, especially in attack, and can hold their own against the Eagles, who rely on Wilfried Zaha.
Palace drew 0-0 at Watford last Saturday and another stalemate would be a decent result for them.
1pt 13-5 general
Jeffrey Schlupp and Connor Wickham are back in training but Scott Dann, Jason Puncheon and Bakary Sako are long-term absentees.
Kaspar Schmeichel and Shinji Okazaki (both ankle) and Daniel Amartey (hamstring) are out.
Crystal Palace have won just two of their last 12 games.
