class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Both the Toffees and the Foxes have been strong in front of goal recently and our tipster is backing more action when they meet in the Premier League
Leicester City are looking to make it four Premier League wins in a row when they travel to Goodison Park to face Everton on Wednesday night.
The Foxes are currently third in the division with 12 victories to their name, more than any other side in the top flight, and will be out for revenge after losing the reverse fixture 2-0 in December.
Everton vs Leicester City Latest Odds
bet365 make Leicester slight 31/20 (2.65) favourites to take all three points on Wednesday, having done in so in their previous away outing at Newcastle.
Everton, though, have won five of their last six games in the Premier League but are 9/5 (2.80) outsiders to improve that sequence and potentially move into the top four.
Only one of the last 13 meetings in all competitions between these teams has ended in a draw and the online bookmaker offers 23/10 (3.30) on a stalemate in this one.
Everton vs Leicester City Team News
Alex Iwobi and Lucas Digne missed Everton’s FA Cup win at the weekend but should be back for this one, although Allan, Fabian Delph, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Niels Nkounkou are all out.
Leicester have been dealt a big blow with Jamie Vardy being ruled out for at least two weeks after a minor hernia operation, joining Dennis Praet and Wes Morgan on the sidelines.
Everton vs Leicester City Preview
Whilst the loss of Vardy will no doubt put a thorn in the plans of Brendan Rodgers, last season’s Golden Boot winner has not actually scored any of Leicester’s last 10 goals since netting on December 20.
The Foxes have scored twice in five of their last six Premier League games, as well as seven times across their two FA Cup games during that time, and even without Vardy they will be confident of striking against a Toffees defence with only one clean sheet in their last four.
Going forward, though, Everton are one of the most prolific sides in the top flight with a goal in all but three of their 17 outings; only Manchester City have scored in a higher percentage of games this season.
Everton vs Leicester City Tips and Predictions
With that in mind, the 4/5 (1.80) quote from bet365 on both teams to score looks a decent selection for this Premier League clash between two strong attacking teams.
