Everton vs Leicester Prediction & Match Preview

Everton vs Leicester
England Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.15 UK
Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool.

All eyes will be on Goodison Park when Everton and Leicester City face each other in the Premier League round 20. 

The Toffees have been in a fine form of late, with the team recording five wins in the previous six league fixtures. 

Carlo Ancelotti’s troops are eyeing their fifth home win of the season, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side.

The Foxes, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record in 2021 intact, but top scorer Jamie Vardy will be sorely missed in the midweek clash. 

The experienced attacker is out of contention with a hernia problem, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. 

The likes of Delph, Allan, and Gbamin remain in the recovery room for the hosts, but Carlo Ancelotti can count on key players for the Goodison Park showdown.

Team News:

Vardy's hip surgery is unlikely to rule the striker out for too long, but he will sit out this trip to Goodison Park and possibly the visit of Leeds United next week.

Kelechi Iheanacho is the obvious choice to fill in for Vardy, but Ayoze Perez was selected against Brentford and may retain his place here.

Rodgers's injury list is otherwise clearing up, with Ricardo Pereira and Caglar Soyuncu among those now back in contention.

As for the home side, Lucas Digne and Alex Iwobi are in line to make their returns from injury in a major boost for Ancelotti.

Another major plus for the Italian coach is that Dominic Calvert-Lewin ended a six-game goal drought at the weekend and will be raring to go here.

Allan and Fabian Delph remain sidelined, while Jean-Philippe Gbamin is a long-term absentee for the Toffees.

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Holgate, Godfrey, Keane, Digne; Doucoure, Gomes; Iwobi, Rodriguez, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Justin; Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison, Barnes; Perez
