Match: Everton vs Leicester City

Competition: Premier League

Betting prediction: Everton 1-0 Leicester City

This should prove a close-run affair at Goodison Park. Both Everton and Leicester City have aspirations to crack the top four, or at the very least, secure Europa League next season.

Everton did the double over the Foxes last season, and edge their opponents in their last six meetings overall (3-2-1). The absence of Jamie Vardy could also prove decisive.

 

Everton vs Leicester City: Recommended bets

– Full-Time result: Everton win

Both Everton and Leicester share an identical defensive record in the Premier League this term (21 goals allowed), but Leicester’s firepower without Vardy rests on the shoulders of James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, who are less effective without the English hitman running the channels ahead of them. Carlo Ancelotti found joy both times against Brendan Rodgers last season, and could orchestrate another tactical display to secure three points yet again.

 

– Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score first

Though his goal-scoring form has suffered of late, Dominic Calvert-Lewin remains Everton’s biggest threat in-front of goal. This, in conjunction with the fact that no other Toffees’ players has registered more than three goals in the Premier League this season, if a goal is to come from them, it easily could be him that sniffs it out.

Everton vs Leicester City: Match preview

It has been a season to remember thus far for Everton. One of England’s biggest clubs within its borders, the faith placed in Carlo Ancelotti to return them to bigger and better things did not pay immediate dividends last term, but as time has progressed, the Italian headmaster has proven his worth once more.

Currently sitting one point from 5th and two points from 4th, the Champions League promised land is just over the horizon that – on current form – is very much achievable for the blue-half of Merseyside. The Toffees will do well to make sure their form in the league remains consistent, however. After match day five, Everton boasted a 4-1-0 record and Dominic Calvert-Lewin was the toast of the town. Match day’s six through ten painted a different story however, as Ancelotti’s troops slipped to four defeats in five.

But Everton have rebounded, winning five of their last seven (5-1-1) and the return of James Rodriguez in conjunction with the inevitable recovery of the influential Allan come at the right time. Three points against Leicester would propel Everton to just three points behind the Foxes, while guaranteeing to surpass one of Liverpool or Tottenham who square-off on Thursday.

Leicester City are the real deal but must now prove their worth

The news that Jamie Vardy is set to miss Leicester’s next three Premier League fixtures comes at a crucial period in their league campaign. Brendan Rodgers continues to prove his managerial credentials as the Foxes currently sit third in the table, while being one of the in-form sides in the league.

The Foxes boast a 6-2-2 record in their last ten Premier League fixtures, including an undefeated run in their last six fixtures. The last time they tasted defeat? Against Everton. Since then, wins against Tottenham, Southampton, and Chelsea (all by the same 2-0 scoreline), and a 2-2 draw against Manchester United have proven Leicester capable of going toe-to-toe with their direct rivals in the table and coming away on the right side of history. Doing so without Vardy will be a greater test to pass, however.

James Maddison and Harvey Barnes have proven themselves to be capable of adding residual scoring (six each) to Rodgers’ preferred XI, but neither Kelechi Iheanacho nor Ayoze Pérez have shown themselves to be regular goal-threats in a team that is far too reliant on it’s vibrant English attacking trio. Should Leicester come through their Vardy-less period on the back of solid results, a push for Champions League next season should be considered a reality.
