The new Champions of the English Premier League Leicester City will be given a guard of honour at King Powers Stadium by Everton Players on Saturday evening when foxes hoist the Mersey side blues for the week 37 games of the English Premier League.
The foxes are now 7 points clear of Tottenham in the 2nd place, with just 2 games to go and are now Champions elect after both teams drew their games last weekend. Leicester City played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford with the Red devils last week, when their skipper equalized Manchester United’s early goal keeping them 10 games undefeated.
The foxed are also good at home, they are unbeaten in their last 14 games at home and have kept a clean sheet in 8 of their last 10 home games. On the contrary, Everton have a hard task at hand, playing at the king powers Stadium against the Champions elect won’t be easy with cacophonous voices of the home fans thundering into their ears and the sack rumours surrounding Roberto Martinez.
Everton have just one win in their last 6 games, 3 draws and they have lost 2. They are not good on the road; they are without a win in their last 4 away games.
