Leicester City dropped back into the bottom three in the Premier League last weekend, as they were beaten by Manchester City. However, they will be looking to bounce back against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Premier League Preview
Two sides that look set to face a challenging season to stay in the Premier League this term will meet on Saturday, with both Leicester City and Everton looking for a key three points as the winter break in the Premier League for the World Cup edges ever closer. Everton will have home advantage for this fixture, and they should be relatively confident after going two without defeat in the English top-flight.
They have been able to move up to 12th in the standings after a positive run of results, and they could edge closer towards the top half with victory against the Foxes. However, they will need to be much more progressive in the final third this weekend after playing out a 0-0 draw against Fulham in their previous fixture.
Leicester City’s season has started very disappointingly, and they dropped back into the bottom three last weekend following defeat against Manchester City. The Foxes still remain in relatively good form though, as they have picked up victories in two of their previous three fixtures.
They did give it a good go against City last weekend, but they lacked the clinical touch in the final third of the field to deserve a point. Still, they could move up to 13th with a victory in the Premier League this weekend.
Everton vs Leicester City Head to Head
Everton has a very fine recent record against the Foxes, as they have gone five without defeat against their rivals this weekend. The Toffees have picked up three wins during that period, but their only home win came in July 2020. Each of the previous two meetings at Goodison Park have ended in 1-1 draws.
Everton vs Leicester City Prediction
Both of these sides have struggled in the final third of the pitch throughout the season, and that would be a concern coming into this fixture. Therefore, we could see a low-scoring draw being played out between Everton and Leicester City in the Premier League.
