Latest performances in all competitions
Everton will look to extend their run of games without defeat to three when they welcome Leicester City to Goodison Park.
Frank Lampard’s side ended the month of October in style with one win, an impressive 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace, and a 0-0 draw against Fulham last weekend.
It is no secret that Everton have made very significant improvement from their abysmal state. The Toffees sit in 12th position, after 13 rounds of football.
The Toffees will now look to put further distance between themselves and the relegation zones, with just three points separating both teams. Therefore, Frank Lampard will be keen to see his side take all three points from Leicester City when they both lock horns for the first time this season.
Everton have been far more superior to Leicester City in recent meetings between both sides. The Toffees have spectacularly avoided defeat in any of their last five meetings with Brendan Rodgers’ side, with two draws and three wins.
Owing to this, and their new lease on life this season, Frank Lampard will fancy his team’s chances when they take on Leicester City.
Possible Everton starting line-up
Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, James Tarkowski, Conor Coady, Vitali Mykolenko; Idrissa Gueye, Amadou Onana; Demarai Gray, Alex Iwobi, Anthony Gordon; Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Injured: Yerry Mina, Andros Townsend
Leicester City on the other hand, saw their three-game unbeaten run cut short by Manchester City over the weekend.
Brendan Rodgers’ side welcomed the reigning Premier League Champions to the King Power stadium, looking to have finally found the form to turn their season around after winning back-to-back games for the first time this season.
The Foxes put in a good performance against Pep Guardiola’s side and had spells where they were better than the Champions, but they failed to apply the finishing touch to their fine performance. A beautifully executed free-kick by Kevin De Bruyne came to be the only goal that separated both sides after 90 minutes.
Head coach Brendan Rodgers was effusive about his team’s display against Manchester City and will be hoping for more of the same when his side travels to Merseyside to take on Frank Lampard’s side.
Having started the season on a bad note, Leicester City will be itching to make a quick return to winning ways as they look to continue their slow and arduous climb out of the relegation zones where they currently sit.
However, Frank Lampard’s side will present a stern test for Brendan Rodgers, who will be looking to break his duck against the Toffees whom he has failed to beat since December 2019.
Possible Leicester City starting line-up
Danny Ward; Daniel Amartey, Çağlar Söyüncü, Wout Faes; Timothy Castagne, Kieran Dewsbury-Hall, Youri Tielemans, James Justin; James Maddison, Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes.
Injured: Johnny Evans, Ryan Bertrand
Everton 2-2 Leicester City
