Meanwhile, Palace welcome the Foxes to Selhurst Park having conceded 10 goals during defeats to Liverpool and Aston Villa.
Despite only earning a share of the spoils in their previous match, Leicester were the happier of the two sides after twice coming from behind to claim a point at the King Power Stadium.
United were guilty of failing to take their opportunities in the final third, but Brendan Rodgers's side fully deserved a result which kept them above their opponents in the standings.
With trips to London and Newcastle United to come, it was important that the Foxes gained a result which ensured that they remained in the mix in the top six.
Nevertheless, Rodgers will not use the relentless schedule as an excuse for a drop off in performance level, and the Northern Irishman will expect at least one win from the next double-header.
Providing that he remains in the starting XI, Jamie Vardy will be looking to extend his run of netting in away matches to four games.
Although his side faced a tough run of games, Roy Hodgson would have been confident of collecting points on the back of a ruthless 5-1 win at West Bromwich Albion.
However, heavy defeats have followed the draws with Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, leaving the Eagles to pay attention to some of the teams below them in the standings.
Palace remain seven points above the relegation zone, but a third defeat in succession would leave Hodgson with decisions to make during the transfer window.
The London outfit have claimed just five points from their last half a dozen games on home territory, a run which needs to improve heading into the second half of the campaign.
Crystal Palace Premier League form: LWDDLL
Leicester City Premier League form: LWWLWD
Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Guaita; Ward, Kouyate, Dann, Van Aanholt; Townsend, Milivojevic, McArthur, Schlupp; Zaha, Ayew
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Fuchs; Albrighton; Ndidi, Tielemans, Justin; Perez, Under; Vardy
We say: Crystal Palace 1-2 Leicester City
While each manager is likely to tinker with his starting lineup, we do not feel that it will make any difference to the end result. Leicester's squad depth has been proven in the Europa League, and the Foxes could adapt to the short turnaround much better than their hosts.
