CRY vs LEI Dream11: Crystal Palace return to Selhurst Park for the first time since being humiliated after falling to a 0-7 defeat at the hands of league leaders Liverpool. They face another side enjoying a hugely successful season so far in Leicester, who successfully did the double over Palace last season without conceding a goal. The Eagles will pose a threat as always, with the mercurial Wilfried Zaha spearheading their attack. Leicester however, with striker Jamie Vardy in excellent form and midfielder James Maddison starting to show off the ability that saw him called up for England duty last season, should prove too strong for Roy Hodgson’s men here and come away with a third successive Premier League victory on the road.
