Leicester vs Crystal Palace: Premier League start time, live, TV

Crystal Palace's resurgence under Roy Hodgson faces its toughest test yet when the Eagles travel to in-form Leicester on Saturday.

After a testing start to the campaign, Palace are unbeaten in their last six games under Hodgson - a run which has moved them to within a point of safety.

In eight previous meetings, Hodgson has never lost against Leicester as a manager, something he'll be keen to continue as Palace look to go seven games unbeaten for the first time in the Premier League.

Crystal Palace will hope to build further momentum after a last-gasp win over Watford when they visit improving Leicester City this weekend.

Goals from Bacary Sako James McArthur in the 89th and 92nd minutes, respectively, saw the Eagles briefly move out of the relegation zone before Wednesday's games.

It was only a third win of the season for Palace but continues an unbeaten run now stretching to six games as they face a Foxes side who have won four on the bounce.
