The Premier League resumes this week with another set of matches, including a crucial encounter at King Power Stadium on Monday where Leicester City will face off against Sean Dyche’s Everton team.
Currently positioned 19th in the Premier League standings, Everton has struggled this season, recently suffering a 4-1 loss to Newcastle United. As a result, the Toffees will need to recover in the upcoming match.
Meanwhile, Leicester City is currently ranked 18th and has also had a disappointing season. In their previous game, the home team played to a 1-1 draw against Leeds United and will need to improve their performance in this fixture.

Leicester City-Everton match preview
Leicester City and Everton are set to meet at King Power Stadium on Monday for a crucial fixture in the Premier League. Both teams are in the bottom three of the table, making this a crucial encounter in the battle to avoid relegation.
In their recent match against Leeds United, Leicester City managed to earn a point towards survival. But the missed chances from both teams meant that either could have emerged victorious. However, one significant takeaway from the match was Jamie Vardy’s first goal in 20 Premier League games. He could help the Foxes in their bid to stay up if he can continue his form.
On the other hand, Everton’s recent defeat to Newcastle United at home has pushed the club into deeper trouble, as they face their first relegation in 72 years. With only 2 points separating them from safety, their next four games consisting of three away matches, and a home game against Manchester City, gain points will be difficult.

Furthermore, Everton’s poor away form, with just one win in their last 33 away Premier League matches, will make it challenging for them to take advantage of Leicester’s defensive weaknesses. Additionally, their low scoring record, with only 25 goals from 33 games, will further add to their struggle.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Iversen; Castagne, Faes, Soyuncu, Kristiansen; Tielemans, Soumare, Maddison; Tete, Daka, Barnes
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Tarkowski, Mykolenko; Iwobi, Gueye, Onana, Doucoure, McNeil; Calvert-Lewin

Leicester City-Everton prediction
With the lack of goals in Everton’s squad, a win seems highly unlikely. The Toffees have found it challenging to find the back of the net this season, making it challenging for them to secure points. In contrast, Leicester City boasts an abundance of attacking talent that can turn the game around in their favour. The Foxes have proven to be a formidable force going forward, with their players making a significant impact. With players like Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho leading the attack, Leicester has the potential to score goals and win games.
Everton’s poor away form and inability to score goals make it highly unlikely for them to secure a win in their upcoming match against Leicester City.
Prediction: Leicester City 2-2 Everton
