Leicester City and Everton face off on Wednesday in an English Premier League showdown at King Power Stadium.
Leicester City currently sits in 3rd place in the standings and on the season he has picked up 24 points. Leicester has had some bad losses this season, but for the most part they have found success and hope they can finish in the top four. If Leicester City wants to finish in the top four, this is a game they need to have. Leicester City is coming off a 3-0 win over Brighton in the last game. James Maddison and Jamie Vardy have been the top players all season and it was no different in the last game, Maddison put two goals in the back of the net and Vardy added another. All three goals for Leicester City were scored in the first 41st minute of the game. In the last game Leicester City had 15 shots and six shots on target. If Leicester City wants to finish in that top four, this is a game they need to win.
Everton currently sits in 7th place in the standings with 20 points picked up so far this year. Everton is really banged up right now and they will be without Seamus Coleman, James Rodriguez and Fabian Delph for this match. The good news for Everton though was they were able to secure their last 1-0 win over Chelsea without those players . Everton only had 28 percent of the possession but a penalty kick in the 22nd minute was the difference as they came away with the victory. Everton isn’t an elite offensive team and over the last three games they have scored only two goals total.
Everton really got lucky to win their last game but their luck is going to run out in this game. Leicester City will put a couple of goals in the back of the net and have no issue coming away with a victory.
Also the Everton team total under is a strong play. Everton is going to finish the game not finding the back of the net.
