Everton vs Leicester
England Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.15 UK
Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool.
Everton and Leicester will battle it out in one of the most exciting games of the mid-week’s round on Wednesday evening at Goodison Park.
Both sides will enter the tie on a high having eased past their respective FA Cup rivals at the weekend. Leicester have been in a particularly fantastic shape lately. They won five consecutive matches in all competitions, netting at least two goals in each of the wins in the process.
The Foxes will travel to Goodison without their key man Jamie Vardy who is expected to be absent for at least two weeks through injury.
Nevertheless, their attacking form has most recently been more dependent on the like of James Maddison who has found the back of the net in each of the last four matches across competitions. He is our number one suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick here against Everton at the odds of 3.60.
f you fancy this specific market, you can also try with Youri Tielemans to score anytime at the sky-high 4.33 odds. The Belgian midfielder will be on penalties in Jamie Vardy’s absence.
Everton vs Leicester Head-to-head
Neither of the two sides have particularly dominated this match-up historically. Everton lead the tie but only by four wins going into the 107th clash against the Foxes.
However, the Toffees have won each of the last two head to head encounters with Leicester, including this season’s 0-2 win at King Power Stadium just more than a month ago.
Both Teams were on target in three of the last four H2H games.
Everton vs Leicester Prediction
Carlo Ancelotti’s team have gone a little bit under the radar of late. Nonetheless, they have four wins in the last five matches in all competitions. They have climbed up to the 6th place in the Premier League standings as a consequence. More importantly, the Italian manager finally has the full team on his disposal right now.
The Toffees showed how powerful they can be on Sunday when they bagged three goals in a demolishing clean sheet victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is back in the team. The talismanic striker broke the deadlock against the Owls at the weekend, while James Rodriguez contributed to the win with a pair of assists.
The Foxes will miss Jamie Vardy’s presence in the final third. Everton have won the last two against them and they have the best XI players available. The home win is worth backing at the odds of 2.75.
