Mark Lawrenson is expecting a close contest as Crystal Palace host Leicester City in the Premier League tomorrow (Saturday).

The two sides meet in south London, with ten points separating them going into the game, with Leicester currently sitting in ninth position in the Premier League with 22 points and Palace down in 16th with 12 points.

But the former Liverpool defender says he can’t separate them for the game, with Leicester proving hard to beat and Palace struggling for wins at home so far this season.

“Crystal Palace’s home form has been so far from convincing – they have only won once at Selhurst Park so far this season,” said Lawrenson in his weekly predictions feature for the BBC website.

“That victory came against Burnley at the start of December, when they had 29 shots and battered the Clarets, but things have not clicked for them very often.

“Leicester lost at home to Tottenham last week, but they have been hard to beat recently, and I can see them leaving Selhurst Park with a point.”

Lawrenson has predicted a 1-1 draw, while his opponent for the feature – former Tottenham and Newcastle United star David Ginola – has predicted a 2-2 draw.
