Leicester City v Everton – Premier League Matchweek 10

Build up to the match
Leicester City and Everton have had similar fates in recent weeks. Both have had an abysmal run of form and as a result have been way below the league table. Indeed, Leicester are currently in 15th place while Everton, despite splashing the cash during the summer, have been condemned to the relegation zone. Both sides badly need the three points. As to who will win it remains to be seen.

       

Match information
Kickoff: Sunday, 29th October 2017, 04:00PM England time
Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicestershire, England

Team News
Leicester City won’t be able to call on their trusty defender Robert Huth, who is currently out with injury. Promising English winger Matty James is also sidelined with injury. Nevertheless, count on the Foxes’ main players Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy to play on the team.

Everton are currently a headache to manage, most notably due to their long injury list. Clever midfielders Ross Barkley and Morgan Schneiderlin are currently out with knocks, while striker Ramon Funes Mori is still out with a long-term injury. Veteran enforcer Seamus Coleman is also out with injury.

       

Form
Leicester City
W-D-D-L-D (15th in the table)

The Foxes’ form in the Premier League has not been something to brag home about, but they will certainly be buoyed by the result of their last league outing. Leicester won 2-1 against Swansea last week and they’ll be hoping they can have a repeat of their performance against Everton on Sunday.

Everton
L-L-L-D-L (18th in the table)

The Toffees have not been stellar in their performances in recent weeks, which paved the way for the sacking of manager Ronald Koeman. They have not won in their last five outings in the Premier League, and have lost their last three. They will have to pull off all the stops in f they are to gain anything against the Foxes.

Match Prediction
Both sides simply have been inconsistent in their recent outings and this match could go either way. While it may sound like a total cliche, the team with the most desire will be the one to clinch victory.

Leicester City 0-1 Everton
