Crystal Palace's Bolasie vs Leicester's Vardy - Who will make the difference?

Selhurst Park - Crystal Palace - 23/02/2014

Crystal Palace host Leicester in an important game for both side's on Saturday afternoon, and both teams have playmakers that could make the difference.

Leicester travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon in a game between two sides desperate to avoid being sucked in to a relegation battle later on in the season.

THe Foxes have started well following their return to the Premier League, and last weekend's 5-3 win against Manchester United will have filled the players with even more confidence.

Jamie Vardy was outstanding in Sunday's win as he scored one and picked up two assists, but he was involved in all five goals in what was his first Premier League start.

Palace had an impressive result to cheer about themselves as they beat Everton 3-2 at Goodison Park in a game that saw Yannick Bolasie shine for the Eagles as he scored his first Premier League goal.

Both playmakers will come up against each other this weekend and both will be looking to repeat their performances from last weekend.

Bolasie has seen more than twice the amount of action so far this season, but hasn't been as effective around goal, as the Leicester man has picked up one more assist and created more chances.

Though Bolasie has made more accurate passes per game and has also enjoyed more success when taking on his opponents.

Both players are game changers, and they will look to make the difference for their side's in what should be an entertaining game at Selhurst Park this weekend.

Who will come out on top this weekend - Vardy or Bolasie?
