Everton vs Leicester City
FA Cup – Third Round.
Date: Saturday, 7th January 2017,
Kick-off at 15:00 UK.
Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool.
Everton and Leicester City will be engaged in a tight contest at Goodison Park this weekend as they hope to progress to FA Cup 4th round.
Everton had a near success in the last edition of the FA Cup, they ended in the semi-final as they were booted out by Manchester United. Prior to the Semi-final game, they were on a winning streak and kept clean sheets in their games. Furthermore, except for the Red Devils defeats, they scored at least 2 goals in all their games last season. They will be hoping to replicate the performance this season.
On the contrary, left the game early last season as they failed to win any of the 2 legs of the 3rd round, they drew 1 and lost 1. They have another tough opponent this season, but they will be hoping for a better outing this year.
