Leicester City vs Everton match preview

Two of the Premier League’s bottom three go head-to-head in a simply huge Monday night clash.

Everton kick off one place and one point below their hosts, in serious danger of seeing their 69-year stay in the top division come to an end.

On Thursday night, the Toffees were smashed 4-1 by Newcastle on a very bleak night at Goodison.

Sean Dyche’s team are now winless in six, having won just one of their last ten.

After this, the Blues’ remaining fixtures are: Brighton (A), Manchester City (H), Wolves (A) and Bournemouth (H).

Given the difficulty of those next two fixtures in particular, defeat here could be pretty much curtains for Everton.

Leicester City’s position is equally as perilous, following Tuesday night’s thrilling 1-1 draw with Leeds.

Jamie Vardy coming off the bench to pinch a point at Elland Road.

Before that, Dean Smith had made an instant impact, winning his first home game in charge, with the Foxes coming from a goal down to beat Wolves; Kelechi Ịheanachọ and Timothy Castagne on target.

Leicester also have some very tough fixtures to come: Fulham (A), Liverpool (H), Newcastle (A) and then West Ham (H).

Whoever wins here will leapfrog Nottingham Forest and end the night out of the relegation zone.

Everton have won their last two visits to the King Power, actually leaving victorious four of the six times they’ve played there since Leicester’s title winning season.

However, the Toffees have won just one of their last 18 Premier League away games, beating Southampton on 1 October.

Thus, Leicester are the favourites to claim the three points.

Leicester City team news

Jamie Vardy came off the bench to score just his second goal of the season last week and he’s set to start this time, with Kelechi Ịheanachọ set to miss the rest of the season.

At the back, Çağlar Söyüncü had played just 259 minutes in all competitions this season under Brendan Rodgers, but has started all three games since Dean Smith’s arrival.

Harvey Barnes returned from injury against Leeds, and his return could be crucial in the run-in.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Iversen; Castagne, Faes, Söyüncü, Kristiansen; Soumaré, Tielemans, Tetê, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy.

Everton team news

Amadou Onana and Abdoulaye Doucouré returned to midfield against Newcastle, from injury and suspension respectively, although it didn’t really help did it?

Ben Godfrey has been having a torrid time at right-back, deputising for Séamus Coleman, so fit again Nathan Patterson could start here.

Demarai Gray was left out on Thursday, with Dwight McNeil and Alex Iwobi getting the nod out-wide, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin has only scored once during this injury ravaged season.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Keane, Mykolenko; Gana Gueye, Doucouré, Onana, McNeil, Iwobi; Calvert-Lewin.
