Brendan Rodgers’s side is hoping to stay in the top 4 when they host the Toffees in Round 13 of the Premier League. Check out what we have to say on this intriguing Wednesday’s encounter by reading our Leicester City vs Everton Preview.
Leicester City Recent Form & Team News
Leicester City start this round of fixtures inside the Premier League’s top three having achieved eight wins from 12 PL rounds (L4), in what is their joint-highest number of victories at this stage of a top-flight campaign. Thanks to their win over Brighton last weekend, they’ve now scored four of their previous five home league goals in the first half, so a ninth PL victory could involve a lightning Leicester start.
The Foxes’ home league matches haven’t been short of entertainment either, with four of their six games producing over 2.5 goals. Brendan Rodgers’ side are always an attacking threat and boast the division’s joint-third best overall goals scored average (2.0), yet it’s worth noting that they have also allowed 4+ shots on target in five of their six PL home matches to date.
Player to watch: Scintillating Jamie Vardy has been directly involved in 14 goals in 11 PL appearances for Leicester this season (ten goals, four assists).
Hot stat: Leicester are on the PL’s longest active run without a draw – 16 matches.
Brendan Rodgers will be without Daniel Amartey (thigh), Jonny Evans (suspension), Ricardo Pereira (groin), and Caglar Soyuncu (hip). Timothy Castagne (thigh) is questionable to feature.
Everton Recent Form & Team News
After a slight wobble, Everton look to be getting back to their best after losing just one of their previous four Premier League matches (W2, D1, L1). However Carlo Ancelotti’s side have conceded 2+ goals in 58.33% of their PL matches so far, yet their defense appears to be improving after each of their previous three PL fixtures witnessed the opposition score under 1.5 goals.
The Toffees have scored 75% of their PL away goals during the first half. They have subsequently trailed at HT in just one PL away fixture (HT: W2, D3, L1). They’ve also scored a first-half opener in their previous two visits to the King Power Stadium.
Player to watch: Gylfi Sigurðsson will be dreaming of such form, although his penalty last time out was his first PL goal since he scored against Leicester in July.
Carlo Ancelotti cannot count on Fabian Delph (thigh), Lucas Digne (ankle), and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles tendon). Seamus Coleman (thigh) and James Rodriguez (calf) are questionable to play.
