Leicester City vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
The Foxes will be hosting Everton in the King Power Stadium for this Saturday matchup. Evidently, they will be motivated as they come into this matchup after clinching a win from their last fixture against Newcastle. Having won in their last 3 consecutive games in all completions, we can without a doubt conclude that the Foxes are focused and are determined to do better.
Matty James and Demarai Gray are the only injury concerns for Claude Puel at they welcome Everton. Moreover, Jamie Vardy sustained a shin injury away at Newcastle and may not be fit to be involved in this matchup for a long period. We may not see major changes in the squad that secured a 2-0 win in the last EPL fixture.
The dogs of war will be coming into this match in low spirits after losing their last game, where they were edged out of the Carabao Cup. Although they put a fight against Southampton, they still failed to qualify for the next round after losing through a penalty shootout.
However, they will feel compelled to forge forward and concentrate on the EPL. Fortunately, they were lucky to bounce back from 2 consecutive losses to clinch a win against Fulham in their EPL fixture last weekend. This may be a motivating factor as they travel to the King Power Stadium, where a straight win for them looks unachievable. We could see the same starting XI that scooped a win against Fulham.
