Leicester v Everton Preview

It’s the showdown between the relegation battling Leicester and Everton at the King Power Stadium on Monday night which essentially looks like a six-pointer. The relegation battle this campaign is one of the best the league has ever seen during the past years with Southampton looking down and out and Leeds, Nottingham Forest, Everton and Leicester looking favorites for the other two spots as it stands. The Foxes however have taken 4 points from their last two games with Jamie Vardy scoring his first goal in 20 league games to win a point at Elland Road against Leeds. Goal scoring hasn’t been an issue for the Foxes having scored the most goals among all the sides in the bottom half of the table. However, lack of clean hasn’t helped Leicester’s cause – having not kept a clean sheet in any of their last 18 league games. Dean Smith’s side will be without their main man Kelechi Iheanacho which should see Jamie Vardy reinstated in the Leicester lineup. Dean Smith also has a great record against the Toffees, having not lost a single game against them in his previous six meetings in the Premier League.

Everton on the other hand haven’t been in the best of form, with just a single victory in their last 10 matches in the Premier League. Sean Dyche’s side who have been reliant on their home form have lost both of their last two matches at Goodison Park, having conceded 7 goals in these games. Away form has been a concer for Everton, with the Toffees having won just once on the road this season and with just two victories in their last 33 away trips. This doesn’t bode well for Sean Dyche’s men with 3 of their next four games being away from home and the only home fixture reading against league leaders Manchester City. The only saving grace would be Leicester’s defensive form, however with Everton being the Premier League’s lowest scorers this season, odds don’t favor Dyche’s men and could be in line for their first relegation in 72 years.
