Leicester vs Everton betting tips: Premier League preview & predictions

Leicester vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction: Leicester 4-1 Everton

Leicester and Everton have had extremely contrasting starts to the campaign, despite both sides being tipped for a top-six push this season.

Starting with Leicester, Brendan Rodgers’ side have made a stunning start to the Premier League season.

The Foxes have won nine of their 13 games so far this season, losing just two games.

After Manchester City dropped points on Saturday, Leicester can go three points ahead of the champions and take sole control over second place, to within eight points of Liverpool.

Though, their success is only amplified when considered next to Everton’s start of the season.

Everton were tipped to battle Leicester for a top-six spot after an impressive summer recruitment drive.

However, despite optimism over the summer, the Toffees’ campaign is yet to get off the ground.

Just four wins in their opening 13 games means Marco Silva is very much on the verge of being sacked.

Though, a big result against high-flying Leicester could save him for another week.

Leicester vs Everton: Who will win?

Considering the form of both sides, it will come as no surprise who the favourites are.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester go into the game as heavy favourites, priced at 13/20.

Considering their recent form, that isn’t actually a bad price.

After a dismal start to the season, Everton are the heavy outsiders, priced at 4/1.

A draw, meanwhile, is priced at 14/5.

A 4-1 scoreline, as we predict, can be found at a whopping 28/1 and could be worth a couple of quid.

In terms of the goalscorer market, it’s just a case of picking which Leicester player is going to score first.

Jamie Vardy goes into the game as the favourite to score first, priced at 3/1.

He is closely followed by Kelechi Iheanacho at 15/4 and James Maddison at 11/2.

Everton’s most likely player to score according to the bookies is Moise Kean, priced at 17/2.

Though, it’s Richarlison who you should back if you fancy the away side to net first, with the Brazilian priced at 9/1.

Despite that, our pick goes to James Maddison who should run rings around the Everton midfield and defence this weekend.

Leicester vs Everton match preview

What a start to the season it’s been for Leicester so far.

Brendan Rodgers’ side impressed during the back-end of the last campaign but no one quite expected the form they’ve shown this season.

Leicester have so far won nine of their 13 games and they haven’t all been easy games either.

The Foxes have already beaten Tottenham and Arsenal, while holding Chelsea to a draw in a game they probably deserved to win.

That sensational form has seen Leicester shoot right towards the top of the table, with the club sat joint second in the Premier League, with a game in hand.

Considering the predictions before the season, you really wouldn’t have predicted them to be in a position to go clear of Manchester City at this stage.

While the whole Leicester team deserves credit, two players in particular have been key during this run.

James Maddison and Jamie Vardy have been simply incredible, scoring a combined 18 goals so far this season.

Though, they could easily add to their goal tallies this weekend when they face a side who had similar top-six aspirations in pre-season.

Can Silva save his job?

Just where did it go wrong for Marco Silva?

Our Everton preview last week was full of positivity, that Silva and the Toffees could finally record back to back wins for what felt like an eternity.

Instead, what followed was a completely spineless performance, one you wouldn’t have expected against the Premier League’s bottom team.

It wasn’t exactly a comfortable victory, but it was a commanding one from Norwich who simply didn’t let Everton have much of a sniff in front of goal.

While Norwich deserve the praise they got, it goes to show just how far Everton have fallen under Marco Silva.

There’s no style, no personality, no commitment and simply no bottle within that Everton dressing room.

Things won’t be getting better anytime soon either.

Everton’s next five league games come against Leicester, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.

The way the Toffees are currently playing under Marco Silva, they could actually get to Christmas without having picked up a single point in December.

Though, as things stand, it doesn’t look like they’ll be playing under Marco Silva for much longer and that could actually be Everton’s only positive this Christmas.

Leicester team news vs Everton

Leicester have been pretty fortunate with injuries of late.

Jonny Evans recently suffered a thigh injury recently but could return to action this weekend.

Matthew James is Leicester’s only long term absentee.

Everton team news vs Leicester

It’s not been an easy time for Everton of late in terms of injuries, though.

Andre Gomes and summer signing Jean-Philippe Gbamin are both out with long-term injuries.

Brazilian Bernard has also missed a few weeks of action, but could return this weekend after missing the Norwich clash.

In his press conference on Friday, Marco Silva revealed all of Fabian Delph, Morgan Schneiderlin and Theo Walcott are doubts.

He also revealed Seamus Coleman will miss out.

With Marco Silva’s job very much on the line, expect him to try and shake up the team.

Richarlison could be tested again up front to solve a huge problem with the faltering attack, while Bernard and Moise Kean could spice things up on the flanks.
