Everton vs Leicester Prediction and Betting Odds
Everton will aim for their third straight home win when they host Leicester City for the next Premier League fixture on Wednesday, 20th April. The Toffees finally got back to winning ways against Man United in the last game after a series of disappointing performances in the away matches. The team’s defensive midfielder Allan recently spoke about his team’s approach for the upcoming games. He said:
“We approach one game at a time, and now there’s Leicester, who are a difficult opponent. We know our qualities and playing at home we can have great results. There’s no other choice, we have to continue fighting for more wins.”
Leicester City has looked in good form over the past few weeks. The Foxes recently won the Europa Conference League Quarter-Final against PSV with an aggregate of 2-1. The team manager Brendan Rodgers was just spot on with his substitutions that resulted in 2 goals in the late second half. In the post-match interview, Rodgers said:
“You still need players to be able to do it. You can script everything you want and how it might look, but they still need to be able to perform. They made a great impact.”
Leicester City couldn’t continue the same momentum in the Premier League as they lost the last match to Newcastle.
Everton will hope for the fitness of center-back Yerry Mina who was seen in action in the recent training session. The status of Jamie Vardy’s availability for the next game is still questionable for the Foxes.
