Having been denied death by rivals Brighton, Crystal Palace faces Leicester City at Selhurst Park in search of their second Premier League win of the season.
There was plenty to be optimistic about under new manager Patrick Vieira, with performances by Conor Gallagher and Wilfried Zaha among those catching attention, but a six-point comeback in six games represents a poor start.
The same could be said of Leicester, who scored just one more point and were held in check at home by Burnley last weekend.
Returning from Poland after his Europa League efforts against Legia Warsaw, Brendan Rodgers may wish to manage his team with caution.
Here’s everything you need to know before the Premier League game:

The two long-time missing from Crystal Palace are Nathan Ferguson and Eberechi Eze, and neither are expected to be back until late November. Vieira could seek to include Cheikhou Kouyate in midfield, but could otherwise choose an unchanged side.
Jonny Evans did not make it to Poland due to illness, but he apparently suffers from a serious foot injury and could start. Kelechi Iheanacho has had an eventful week after an immigration problem prevented him from playing in the Legia Warsaw game in which Rodgers rested a large part of his first-choice squad. The exclusion of James Maddison from this game could be indicative and the creative midfielder may well return after being benched against Burnley.
Crystal Palace: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Milivojevic, McArthur; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha
Leicester: Schmeichel; Ricardo, Evans, Vestergaard, Chilwell; Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison; Lookman, Vardy, Barnes
Crystal Palace 10/21
A pretty tough game to predict, with both teams generally fighting for pace, and it could go either way at Selhurst Park – a draw, then. Crystal Palace 1-1 Leicester
