Leicester City team news & predicted line-up vs Everton

Here’s the latest Leicester City team news ahead of their Premier League clash with Everton...


Leicester City travel to Goodison Park on Saturday evening looking to move off the bottom of the table.

The Foxes head into the game 18th but just one point from being able to leapfrog Southampton.

Brendan Rodgers’ side’s mini-revival was halted by Manchester City last week as their run of three without a defeat came to an end.

On the weekend, they face an Everton side who have kept clean sheets in both of their last two matches.

However, surprisingly, Leicester boast the best goal-scoring record away from home in the league this season (12).

Predicted Leicester City line-up vs Everton

Jonny Evans

Rodgers is due to make a late call on his captain.

Jonny Evans has been struggling with a calf injury.

He is unlikely to be available for Saturday but could return in the EFL Cup during the week.

Rodgers said: “We’ll decide tomorrow whether he’s going to be ready or whether it’ll be Tuesday.

“It’s been a little bit slower than we’d have hoped, but he was out training with the squad today.”

Ricardo Pereira & Ryan Bertrand

Both full-backs remain long-term absentees.

Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand have been sidelined since August.

Pereira is set to return in the new year whilst Bertrand’s return date remains unclear.

Maddison, Barnes & Justin

This trio will all have their eyes on a potential England call-up and will be desperate to impress.

Maddison is the player making the strong push to receive a call-up from Gareth Southgate.

The midfielder has six goals and two assists this season in a struggling Leicester side.

Barnes and Justin have plenty of work to do in order to convince Southgate.
