Roy Hodgson’s Palace have threatened to simply coast to the end of the season since the resumption of the sport last month, following a victory over strugglers Bournemouth with a 4-0 defeat by Liverpool and a 1-0 loss to mid-table Burnley.
Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, will be eager for his players to respond positively after Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat against Everton, and the former Liverpool coach will be very aware that his team’s chances of securing a Champions League place are at risk of slipping completely, with Chelsea, Manchester United and Wolves gradually closing the gap to the third-placed Foxes with six games left.
Palace, meanwhile, are safe in 12th place on 42 points, though a strong finish to the term could yet see the Eagles earn their own European spot.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of today’s game.
When is it and what time is kick-off?
The match will begin at 3pm on Saturday 4 July at the King Power.
With the city of Leicester now in a local lockdown due to a spike in coronavirus cases, there was initially some discussion that the game would be held in a neutral venue, but that has not proven to be the case.

Leicester have more to play for than Palace, but the Foxes have been burrowing deeper into their rut over the last week. While Palace might not be the most motivated side in the league right now, they are more than competent enough to hold the hosts here. Leicester 1-1 Crystal Palace.
