Leicester City vs Everton Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Leicester welcome Everton to the King Power Stadium on 29/10/17 in a meeting of two clubs that have recently undergone managerial changes. Leicester won 3-1 at home to Leeds in the Carabao Cup last time out, while Everton were eliminated from the competition after a 2-1 loss at Chelsea. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

From the small sample size we’ve seen so far, both of these teams have improved since making a change of manager. With the Everton players believed to want David Unsworth to stay on a permanent basis, I’m expecting them to produce a big performance this weekend.

Leicester City Preview

After a slow start Leicester came back to seal their passage to the last eight of the Carabao Cup with a 3-1 victory at home to Championship side Leeds United. Pablo Hernandez’s excellent finish put the visitors in front, but Kelechi Iheanacho brought the Foxes level just four minutes later. With just twenty minutes to go, Leicester sprang to life and came away with the win following goals from Algerian pair Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez as Michael Appleton left his role as caretaker boss with two wins from two games. He now passes the baton to former Southampton boss Claude Puel, who was sacked at the end of last season despite achieving an 8th-placed finish and took the Saints to Wembley where they were narrowly beaten 3-2 by Manchester United in the League Cup final. Currently 14th in the table, it’s been a difficult start to the season for the Foxes, who were arguably handed the toughest opening fixtures of any team in the league. Though Puel was often criticised last season for his pragmatic style of play at St. Mary’s, his team were always defensively solid and he will arguably now have better attacking talent to work with at Southampton, with the likes of Mahrez, Demarai Gray and Jamie Vardy all at his disposal.

Matty James (achilles) is ruled out but Robert Huth (ankle) is working his way back to full fitness.

Everton Preview

Everton showed signs of improvement away at Chelsea last time out but it wasn’t enough to defeat the reigning Premier League champions, who progressed to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup with a 2-1 victory. Antonio Rudiger’s excellent header from Charly Musonda’s cross put the home side a goal to the good, before a fine individual effort from Willian made it 2-0 in stoppage time. Dominic Calvert-Lewin bagged himself a consolation in stoppage time but it wasn’t enough for David Unsworth’s side, who again suffered from a lack of significant goal threat. It seems that will be a repeated component of this Everton side until January at least, with Romelu Lukaku’s goals being particularly difficult to replace. Last weekend’s emphatic 5-2 loss at home to Arsenal signalled the end of Ronald Koeman’s time at Goodison Park, with Unsworth being handed temporary control of the first team. He has made no secret of his desire to take the job on a permanent basis and noises in and around the dressing room suggest he would be a popular choice with the first-team squad. That could add extra motivation for the players involved at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, as the Toffees look to end a barron 12 match wait for a win away from home in the Premier League and try to repeat their 2-0 win at Leicester from last season.

Everton Team News

Idrissa Gueye is suspended for Everton and misses out. Seamus Coleman (broken leg), Ramiro Funes Mori (knee), Ross Barkley (hamstring) and Yannick Bolasie (cruciate ligament) are long-term absentees.
