Preview: After seeing no competitive action for 11 days, Everton should be fresh for this midweek visit from a Leicester City team whose focus might possibly be elsewhere. If so, the travelling Foxes could be set for further disappointment on Merseyside, having failed to win any of the previous three league meetings between the sides.

Everton – Lampard to continue leaning on home comforts?

Even without playing a game, Everton came away from last weekend as the real winners as far as the Premier League relegation picture is concerned. That is because results fell their way as all three teams below them in the table accrued a single point between them. So there should be a spring in the step of the players as they prepare for their first taste of competitive action in nearly two weeks.

The Toffees were last seen upsetting Manchester United at Goodison Park on 9 April, some 11 days ago. It marked a third win in four home league games under Frank Lampard, whose record outside of Merseyside is altogether more grim. Everton are yet to register a point on their travels since appointing the former Chelsea boss, losing all five away matches so far, in which they scored five but allowed a hefty 17.

Key Stat: In ten Premier League games overseen by manager Frank Lampard, Everton have won all three in which they recorded a clean sheet (each of these wins were at home) but none of the seven in which they conceded.

Leicester City – More chopping and changing incoming from Rodgers?

Sunday’s loss away at Newcastle all but quashed any lingering hope of Leicester qualifying for Europe next season via the league. Brendan Rodgers felt the result was harsh on his team, who dictated a lot of the game without truly imposing themselves in the attacking third, but can the Northern Irishman really have any complaints after making eight changes from the side which won in the Netherlands three days before?

That brought an end to their five game unbeaten run in all competitions, the 2-1 scoreline at St James Park representing only a second loss in the league since the start of March (W4 D1 L2). The picture is a lot more grim away from home, though, the Foxes winning one of their last ten such fixtures in the Premier League having banked a solitary clean sheet across all fifteen away league games this season.

Key Stat: Each of Leicester City’s four previous league games saw both teams among the goals. However, the Foxes have only scored more than once in one of the past six Premier League away games.

You get the impression this matters a whole lot more for one side in particular. As Brendan Rodgers looks to manage his squad with a European semi-final versus AS Roma in mind, Frank Lampard is honed in on accumulating sufficient points as to avoid the ignominy of becoming the first Everton manager to overseen relegation from the Premier League. Will desire alone be enough to win this contest though?


Everton Vs Leicester City – Key Facts:

  • Both teams have scored in each of the past four league games involving Leicester. However, Everton failed to win all seven Premier League games under Frank Lampard in which they didn’t keep a clean sheet.
  • We could be set for a similar outcome to their meeting from last season here at Goodison Park, which ended 1-1 after Youri Tielemans cancelled out Everton’s half-time lead given to them by James Rodriguez.
  • Regardless, we can expect goals. Everton have scored in four of their five competitive home games since appointing Frank Lampard as manager. Meanwhile Leicester have scored in 13 of their 15 Premier League away games in 2021-22.


That same desire has carried Everton to three home wins out of four under Lampard, beating all of Leeds, Man Utd and Newcastle without conceding. Conversely Leicester, middling in mid-table, have won one of their last ten away league games. Yet they invariably score, doing so in 13 of 15 away matches this season, which has resulted in Both Teams to Score returning a winning bet 80% of the time on their travels.
