Premier League: Everton vs Leicester

Everton vs Leicester Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of the most interesting matches on Saturday in Premier League, Everton host Leicester at Goodison Park.

Everton play solid this season and after 16 Rounds they are standing in the middle of the table. Their main goal is to reach the place which leads in the UEFA Europa League next season and that position is reachable because Spurs who stand at the 5th position have only three points more than Everton. Home side have one of the best attacks in Premier League (scored 29 goals), but their main problem is their defence. Home team conceded 21 goals in 16 matches this season. Everton are unbeaten in their last 8 matches in all competitions and they are looking to make another good result against leader on the table. Lukaku, who scored 12 goals this season, is in the great form and he will be one of the most dangerous players for Leicester defence.

Leicester play fantastic this season and they are the most surprising team in Premier League. Claudio Ranieri, talking about Leicester City ambitions for this season said that 40 points is still the target, despite the Foxes currently occupying top spot with 35 points. Two most powerful players in visitors squad are definitely the current top scorer Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. They both scored together 26 or 34 goals for Leicester City this season in Premier League. This match will be one of the hardest for visitors. In the next two rounds they are playing against much stronger teams (Manchester City, Liverpool). Without any doubt, Ranieri made very good squad and they are closer to take three points against Everton.

Everton vs Leicester injuries and suspensions

Home side have full squad available for this game, except James McCarthy, who is doubtful. Visitors miss long-term injured Jeffrey Schlupp, Phil Jagielka, Danny Drinkwater and Ritchie de Laet are all injured, while Robert Huth is out due to suspension.

Everton vs Leicester Prediction

I expect an interesting match between Everton vs Leicester. Both teams are playing very offensive, while on the other side their defences are very shaky, so I believe that we will see at least three goals on this game.
