Leicester City vs Everton Match Preview
When Leicester City face Everton this weekend in the English Premier League, it would be a clash between two sides that changed managers. One has already made a signing while the other is trying to find the one who can guide the club out of its mess. This exciting Leicester City vs Everton fixture would be played at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, October 29.
The Foxes have appointed former Southampton manager Claudio Puel as their manager after sacking Craig Shakespeare. While the appointment has divided opinion, there is no doubt that the club is trying to lift itself out of the muddle it currently finds itself in. Nine points from as many matches mean that Leicester are currently 14th in the Premier League table and just one point above the relegation zone. Having said that, it looks like Leicester’s fortunes look to have been on the upswing. They beat Leeds United 3-1 in the midweek in the Carabao Cup that extended their unbeaten streak to four matches in all competitions. Last weekend’s 2-1 win over Swansea City should also give confidence as the hosts look to climb up the ladder into the safety of top half.
Everton also joined the sack race by bidding adieu to Ronald Koeman and appointing David Unsworth as the caretaker. After a summer of extensive spending, the Toffees struggled to live up to the lofty expectations. They currently find themselves 18th on the table with eight points from nine matches. Although they are just one point away from their hosts of the weekend, the mood in the club is despondent making things tricky and difficult. The midweek loss in the Carabao Cup at the hands of Chelsea didn’t help matters although their performance was several notches better. Can Unsworth inspire his side to build from the midweek and pick up a much-wanted win?

To say that both teams are desperate for a win is probably understating the need for either sides. New manager Puel comes with huge responsibility for Leicester while Unsworth has the onerous task of keeping the lifting the morale and keeping the seat warm for new manager. Both sides have troubles at the back which means there could be goals from either side.
