Leicester vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: 1 May 2023, Monday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
Leicester and Everton are separated by just one point down in the bottom three of the Premier League standings, meaning we have all the ingredients of a huge relegation six-pointer on Monday evening at King Power Stadium.
Both outfits are going through nightmare campaigns in this term of the competition and they are both in huge danger of getting dropped to the Championship football next season.
The home court advantage may play a big role here as we expect the local crowd in Leicester to create an electric atmosphere in hope of helping their team escape the danger area.
The Foxes will enter this in higher spirits after claiming four points from the previous two league affairs.
They showed character in a comeback win over Wolves last weekend at King Power before finding the late equalizer through veteran forward Jamie Vardy six days ago at Elland Road.
The story is completely different with Everton who are winless in six subsequent league outings.
They took just one point in the previous four matches, a run that involves a painful 1-4 defeat at the hands of Newcastle on Thursday night.
The Toffees have scored just two goals in the previous four league games and they own the competition’s weakest attacking record with 25 goals notched in 33 outings so far.
Leicester vs Everton Head-to-head
- Everton lead the overall H2H tie by 4 wins but they own a negative record in the games at King Power Stadium where the Toffees lost 23 and won just 15 of 53 outings.
- Leicester came on top in the return game played in November last year, celebrating a 0-2 victory at Goodison Park.
- Just one of the previous five head to head meetings between these rivals saw three or more goals scored.
Leicester vs Everton Prediction
Stakes can hardly be higher for the two teams going into Monday’s encounter. Sean Dyche will park the bus and wait for his team’s chances from counter attacks knowing how limited Everton’s forward line has been throughout the whole campaign.
Since Leicester have not quite enjoyed a scintillating attacking form of late either, we are tempted to take the 1.80 odds offered for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick. Alternatively, the home win is paid at the 2.00 odds and we believe it’s worth backing as the Toffees have just not been pulling up any trees of late.
