Marco Silva is in desperate need of victory on Sunday but our tipster is backing them to be comfortably defeated by Brendan Rodgers’ impressive Foxes
Leicester City can keep up the pressure on Premier League leaders Liverpool when they host Everton and under-pressure Marco Silva on Sunday afternoon.
Brendan Rodgers’ men have been the surprise package this season, taking 29 points from their first 13 games to sit second behind Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The Reds, then, will be reluctantly cheering on their cross-city rivals for this one as Everton look to win consecutive away league games for the first time in over three years.
Leicester City vs Everton Latest Odds
bet365 make Leicester 3/5 (1.60) favourites to make it six top-flight wins a row, something they have not achieved since a run of seven victories in March 1963.
Everton won 2-1 at Southampton in their last away game – their first away league win since March – and are 9/2 (5.50) to take the points at the King Power Stadium on Sunday. The draw is priced at 3/1 (4.0).
Leicester City vs Everton Team News
Jonny Evans should be fit for Leicester despite going off last weekend against Brighton, whilst Matty James trained this week but will not play.
Seamus Coleman is out for the Toffees, who are also likely to be without Theo Walcott, Fabian Delph and Morgan Schneiderlin.
Leicester City vs Everton Preview
Despite sitting in second place, Leicester have largely managed to escape the spotlight due to Liverpool’s incredible form and champions Manchester City being nine points off the pace.
The focus this week is likely to be on Everton’s manager, with Silva under increasing amounts of pressure after losing six of his last nine games in charge of the Toffees.
That run is unlikely to get much better this weekend, with Leicester having scored 17 times in their last five Premier League games whilst conceding just once.
Leicester City vs Everton Tips and Predictions
The 3/5 (1.60) quote on Rodgers to lead his side to another victory actually looks slightly too long, but the best bet comes in the form of Leicester winning with a -1 handicap at 8/5 (2.60).
This would have paid out in each of the Foxes’ last four league games and they should have few troubles seeing off an Everton side that have scored just five away goals this term, conceding 10 in the process.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
