Leicester v Everton Preview
It’s crunch time for Leicester City and Everton in their upcoming Premier League clash at King Power Stadium.
Leicester, who are one point above their opponents and still stuck in the relegation zone, will be looking to secure consecutive league wins at home for the first time in over a year.
Meanwhile, Everton, who are without a win since March, need a result to boost their fading hopes of survival.
Leicester will be buoyed by the late equaliser scored by veteran forward Jamie Vardy in their midweek game against Leeds United, which ended in a 1-1 draw. Vardy, who has scored six times against Everton, including four at home, will be a key player for the Foxes.
Although they have produced mixed results under new boss Dean Smith, their recent home win against Wolves should provide them with some momentum.
On the other hand, Everton’s away form is a major concern, with their last away win coming in October.
However, they have drawn three of their last four away games, and they have won their last two visits to King Power Stadium.
Despite this, Everton’s prospects of survival are looking bleak, and they need a positive result to have any chance of staying up.
One player to watch for Everton is Dwight McNeil, who has scored three of Everton’s last six goals.
However, they will need to improve their scoring record on Mondays, having failed to score in four of their last five away games played on this day of the week.
