Everton v Leicester Team News

Everton are back in another poor run of form and since the Big Sam effect worn off, they have failed to win in their last seven matches. This did involve tough matches against Chelsea, Tottenham, Man United and Liverpool but defeat to Bournemouth and two draws to West Brom really are not good enough.

Their home form is looking a bit better as well to be fair. They have only lost one of their last seven league home games, drawing twice and winning the remaining four. They will be hopeful of picking up another three points against Leicester, although it won’t be an easy task.

Leicester are at the other end of the form table and flying. They’ve gone six unbeaten and put five past Peterborough at the weekend, and come into the game off the back of a solid 2-0 win against Watford. Victory at Goodison Park would represent Leicester’s second PL 'double' over Everton in three years.

This leaves them in a promising 7th position, six points above their opponents on Wednesday, as the visitors were in action in the FA Cup on Saturday, making the short trip to Peterborough and coming away 5-1 victors to extend their unbeaten streak to six matches in all competitions.

Games at Goodison Park have been a different story for Leicester, though, with the Foxes returning a record of W11, D16, L26 from all Goodison Park visits to date. In the PL era, Leicester’s 3-2 win at Everton in December 2015 was the club’s first in ten attempts.

Teams' Potential Starting Line-ups:

Everton (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Martina, Williams, Keane, Kenny; Schneiderlin, Gueye; Bolasie, Sigurdsson, Walcott; Tosun.

Leicester (4-4-1-1): Schmeichel; Chilwell, Maguire, Dragovic, Simpson; Albrighton, Iborra, Ndidi, Gray; Okazaki; Vardy.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Everton: Leighton Baines, James McCarthy, Seamus Coleman, Ramiro Funes Mori, Maarten Stekelenburg.

Leicester: Wes Morgan, Robert Huth, Matty James.

Conclusion and Predictions:

The Foxes are winless in their last three away games in the Premier League and have only won three times all season but all of these wins have come against teams in the bottom six as well. Nevertheless, the momentum is firmly with Leicester. The Foxes have scored first in six out of their last eight matches, keeping five consecutive clean sheets before Saturday’s 5-1 FA Cup win over Peterborough.

Goals are part of the DNA of this fixture. In the last 11 games that they have played against each other 41 goals have been scored, and only twice during that time did both teams not score. In the entire history of this fixture, there have only ever been four 0-0 results.
