It was expected that Palace would have managed to get at least a point in their away game against Aston Villa (3-0) a few days ago. The early red card of Tyron Mings should have given a valuable advantage to Palace but instead the team conceded two more goals during the second half and finally lost by 3 goals. Roy Hodgson should think of a way how to get use of such situations when the team is in the position of higher ball possession, gradual attacks and get in the role of the pro-active team.
Leicester is currently placed 3rd. A few expected that the Foxes would be able to fight for top 4 in the presence of stronger Tottenham and Everton. The current team of Leicester looks more unpredictable than the version from the previous season. The Foxes are able to record clean-sheets, they use their counter-attacks better. Brendan Rodgers uses 3-4-3 formation against particular opponents in order to get maximum points out of the games.
