The Foxes are W9-D2-L1 in all competitions since early December, including a current streak of five victories on the bounce, though it should be noted that the sole loss over this entire period was inflicted by Everton themselves.
The Toffees are in excellent shape too and trail third-placed Leicester by just six points with two games in hand, as they’re a decent W6-D2-L2 over 90 minutes across the same time frame.
In the league alone, Everton have won five of their last six league games, though they haven’t fared so well on home turf where they’ve lost three of their past five.
Leicester Draw No Bet
By contrast, Leicester have won seven of nine away games this season so far and have enjoyed some notable victories, most notably downing Man City 5-2 at the Etihad, as they’ve also registered victories over North London duo Arsenal and Tottenham.
Liverpool are the only side to down them on their travels domestically, so they look a good prospect draw no bet.
Carlo Ancelotti has Alex Iwobi and Alex Iwobi available again, while he was able to hand star playmaker James Rodriguez some more minutes to build match fitness in a comfortable 3-0 win over Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday in the FA Cup.
He’ll also have been pleased to see Dominic Calvert-Lewin end his goal drought in that game, though his team will be better off when midfield metronome Allan (who was an integral part of Ancelotti’s Napoli team) returns to the line-up.
James Maddison To Score Anytime
Brendan Rodgers has had to contend with defensive injuries all season, but is strengthened by the returns of Caglar Soyuncu and Ricardo Pereira.
Midfielder Dennis Praet is also unavailable, though the big loss is Jamie Vardy up front. However, the visitors aren’t as reliant upon their talisman as some might think.
The former England international might be in contention for the golden boot again with 11 goals this season, but he’s yet to score this side of Christmas as Leicester have goalscorers elsewhere in the team.
One such man is attacking midfielder James Maddison, with the 24-year-old registering in each of his past four appearances in all competitions against Newcastle, Southampton, Chelsea and Brentford.
He bagged the opener when these two met at Goodison Park in the League Cup last season, and can help fill the void left by Vardy’s absence.
