Leicester City vs Everton Preview

Leicester City vs Everton

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – King Power Stadium

Date: 29th October 2017

Kick-off time – 16:00 GMT

Two teams with new managers will square up against each other in this tie as they try to save their season.

While Everton decided to get rid of former Southampton manager Ronald Koeman, Leicester City named the immediate past Saints manager Claude Puel as the new man to lead them after the sacking of Craig Shakespeare.

Leicester City have picked up some form though as they are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competition after following up their 2-1 over Swansea in the league with another 3-1 over Leeds in the Carabao  Cup.

Leicester City has won three of their last six meetings with Everton.

Meanwhile Everton will be led by David Unsworth who is trying to make a case for the permanent job.

They were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea in midweek and have lost four and drawn two of their last six games.

The Toffees were one of the favourites to break into the top four this season but that seem highly unlikely now.

They are in the Premier League relegation zone and need a miracle to turn their Europa League campaign around.

While many were concerned about how the Toffees would score goals without Romelu Lukaku, this season has been more about how can they stop their opponents from scoring.

They have scored in seven of their last eight games however they have also failed to keep a single clean sheet in those matches and conceded 5 against Arsenal alone.
