Leicester and Everton are clashing at King Power Stadium in round 36 of the English Premier League. Leicester is now without a win in their last 6 games, and they got knocked out of the Conference League earlier this week. Everton is still in the relegation zone, but they have improved, and they might even stay in the EPL.

Leicester is now in 14th place, which means they will not be playing in any of the European competitions, but that might not be a bad thing because they can solely focus on the EPL next season. Leicester hasn’t been good defensively, but they also haven’t done much in the attacking end this season, and a lot of injuries have had something to do with that. Vardy is still the leading goalscorer for Leicester despite being injured for half of the season, while Maddison has added 8 goals. Barnes has 7 assists. Now that the season is getting to the end, Leicester’s injury list is a lot smaller, but there is no time left for them to do something this season. I think Leicester is a brilliant club, and I hope they can do a lot better next season.

Everton is still in the relegation zone, in 18th place with 32 points, but that win against Chelsea last week might have been crucial for them. Everton has a few hard games left this season, but we will see how many points they will need to stay in the league. Everton has also had a lot of injuries this season, and in part, that was the reason why they are where they are right now. Richarlison is the leading goalscorer for Everton with only 8 goals and 4 assists, while Gray has added 5 goals. Townsend, Van de Beek, Patterson, and Godfrey are all injured. If they manage to stay in the league, Everton will be a lot better team next season, but that is a big if because the competition at the bottom of the EPL table is really strong this season. the good news for Everton is that they have a game in hand, and Burnley has lost their match this weekend, which means Everton will be climbing out of the relegation zone with a win here.

I think this is a very good spot for Everton because Leicester is in bad form, and they lost in the Conference League semifinals earlier this week. I think the least Everton gets here will be a point, but I will take them to win for a lot of value.
