Home Everton

31/01/2018 Kick Off:  7:45 pm Goodison Park V Predicted Score:1 - 2

Away Leicester City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Goals from set pieces. Both sides have players who are able to score from free kicks and corners, so 19/2 on Harry Maguire to score at any time doesn’t look too outrageous.

2 We fancy:

Wayne Rooney and Jamie Vardy to both get on the scoresheet. Rooney is at 23/10 to score at any time whilst Vardy is 7/5.

3 It's a long shot, but…

A 4-0 Everton win is at 80/1, with Theo Walcott to get a hat trick is at 200/1. Told you it was a long shot!

Everton's Last Six:

Everton’s last six: Won: 0 Drawn: 4 Lost: 2

With no FA Cup fixtures to worry about this weekend, Sam Allardyce looks set to have a fresh team available with a few exceptions. James McCarthy will miss out following his horrible leg break against West Brom, whilst Leighton Baines and Ramiro Funes Mori also miss out due to long standing injuries.

Leicester City's Last Six:

Leicester’s last six: Won: 4 Drawn: 2 Lost: 0

Following the heavy rotation in the FA Cup against Peterborough, Claude Puel will have his regular starting eleven fit and ready to go, with some of the weekend’s top performers perhaps ready to come off the bench to make an impact, if needed.

Everton vs Leicester City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Theo Walcott was signed by Everton to add pace and goals to Sam Allardyce’s struggling side

In recent weeks, the form of these two sides couldn’t have been more opposite. Since sacking Craig Shakespeare and appointing Claude Puel, the Foxes have been on an upward turn and have managed to find themselves in the last remaining Europa League stop and only a few points behind Arsenal in sixth. A good cup display away at Peterborough United may have been criticised by some, but it looks to be a smart move from Puel.

As for the home side, Everton have moved away from a relegation scrap for the time being, but without a win since the middle of December, Big Sam needs to turn it around quickly before some of the sides below them catch up.

At 15/8, you might fancy putting something on Everton to win this one but at 6/4, you’d be silly to bet against an inform Leicester side.

A 2-1 Leicester win is priced at 17/2, but never bet against Big Sam to guide his team to a crafty 1-0 win, which is 7/1.

If it’s goal scorers you’re looking for, Everton’s new Turkish signing Cenk Tosun is 5/1 to be the first goal scorer, whilst Riyad Mahrez is a good price at 9/1 to opening the scoring on Merseyside.

Predicted Score: Everton 1 - 2 Leicester City
