Roy Hodgson says Crystal Palace will not fear going up against Leicester despite the Foxes thrashing Southampton 9-0 last weekend.

The two clubs meet at Selhurst Park on Sunday looking to remain as the surprise packages in the Premier League top six.

Hodgson, who also confirmed he is in talks with the club about extending his contract which runs out at the end of the season, is well aware of the threat the Foxes pose.

Palace put in a spirited fight-back to hold Arsenal at the Emirates and sit in sixth after 10 games

Leicester have come off a record-breaking 9-0 victory over Southampton, and sit third 

'I think you would fear being confronted with a tiger in the jungle, that is what real fear is,' Palace's manager said.

'We have a lot of respect for Leicester and we are aware they are capable of beating us, but that's not something we want to happen. We know they have the ability to do it, but we have it in our hands to do something about it.'
