Everton denied Chelsea the opportunity to go top of the log on Saturday and they’ll be hoping to do the same to Leicester on Wednesday.

Leicester vs Everton: Recommended bets
Both teams to score. Everton have conceded in each of their last five away matches while scoring in six of their last seven on the road. Leicester have scored in each of their last six matches at the King Power.
Jamie Vardy to score. Vardy scored his 12th goal of the season in all competitions on Sunday – 10 of those have come in 11 Premier League appearances.
Leicester vs Everton: Premier League preview
High-flying Leicester welcome Everton to the King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Everton picked up their first home win in four matches on Saturday. Carlo Ancelotti got one over his former side as Everton beat Chelsea 1-0. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot. The result leaves Everton 7th – four points behind Leicester and five behind league leaders Tottenham.
Things are really congested at the top of the table and a win on Wednesday could lift the Toffees into the top four, depending on results elsewhere.
Leicester cruised past Brighton with a 3-0 home win on Sunday. All three goals came inside the first half. Jamie Vardy scored his 10th league goal of the season while James Maddison scored a brace – including what will surely end up as one of the goal of the season contenders.
Leicester are on 24 points, 1 point above Southampton and 1 behind both Spurs and Liverpool.
No team has picked up more points than Leicester on the road this season (15). The Foxes’ home form is less impressive but still respectable; they’ve won three and lost three of their six matches played at the King Power Stadium. Including Europa League matches, Brendan Rodgers’ side have won five and lost one of their last six at home.
Everton, meanwhile, have won three and drawn one of their six away games.
Leicester and Everton have faced each other 28 times in the Premier League. 13 of those matches have ended in draws, while Everton have won nine and lost six.
Everton beat Leicester 2-1 at home when the side’s last met in July. Early goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson gave the Toffees a 2-0 lead at half-time. Kelechi Iheanacho halved the deficit in the second half but Everton hung on for the win.
Last season’s corresponding fixture at the King Power – played in December 2019 – ended 2-1 in Leicester’s favour. Richarlison had given Everton a first-half lead but the Foxes turned things around with second-half goals from Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho.
Leicester team news vs Everton
Brendan Rodgers could be without five first-team players – all of whom are defenders.
Jonny Evans will serve a one-match suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards in the Premier League.
Caglar Soyuncu is set to miss out again with a groin injury, so midfielder Wilfred Ndidi could slot into the Foxes’ three-man defence alongside Christian Fuchs and Wesley Fofana.
Ayoze Perez is expected to get the nod out wide, so Cengiz Under and Harvey Barnes may have to settle for a place on the bench. Dennis Praet is an option for Rogers to consider for midfield rotation.
Timothy Castagne remains doubtful with a hamstring injury, so Marc Albrighton and James Justin are likely to retain their wingback roles.
Ricardo Pereira is still a week or two away from action, while Daniel Amartey is a long-term absentee.
Everton team news vs Leicester
Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Seamus Coleman should be available for the game after recovering from a hamstring injury. Mason Holgate and Ben Godfrey – both central defenders – have been used in the full-back roles in recent weeks.
James Rodriguez missed the victory against Chelsea with a calf problem and is a doubt for Wednesday.
Alex Iwobi has impressed recently and could keep his place out wide, while Andre Gomes and Tom Davies are likely to start from the bench.
Jean-Philippe Gbamin is nearing a return to action. Wednesday night will come too soon for him but he could be in Everton’s matchday squad at the weekend.
Fabian Delph remains sidelined with an injury picked up at the start of December.
Lucas Digne is a long-term absentee.
