Everton News and Form – Can Everton pull off the upset?

A convincing home win over Chelsea and then a point at Old Trafford against Manchester United on Sunday. Since the departure of Marco Silva, Everton have done alright under interim boss Duncan Ferguson. They seem to be playing with a bit more vim and vigour and so could pose a threat to Leicester in this one. It was just back at the start of December that they went to Leicester in the league and Everton lost 2-1 at the King Power.

FT Draw
11/4

Betfair

Everton have lost just one of their last five home games in all competitions (W3 D1 L1). They are without a clean sheet in three there however. Everton’s League Cup campaign started with an away win at Lincoln, before coming through a tricky tie at Championship side Sheffield Wednesday. A 2-0 win at home over Watford in the last round sets them up for this. Given that they have to face Liverpool in the FA Cup third round, this looks to be their best shot at silverware.

Leicester News and Form – Will Leceister beat Everton again?

Will Leicester get another win over Everton this season? It has been such a great season for Leicester who are sitting second in the Premier League table. They had an eight-match winning streak of league form snapped on the weekend with a 1-1 home draw against Norwich. The Foxes are not realistically going to catch Liverpool for the league title, but being three games from potential silverware in the EFL Cup, they may really go for this.

They have a lot of strengths, have so much going for them at the moment. It is a five-match winning streak away from home that they are on in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of those fixtures. All of their games in this season’s EFL Cup have been away from home. They edged a penalty shoot-out win at Newcastle to open with, before securing wins at Luton and Burton. Can they strike at Goodison Park?

Everton vs Leicester Predictions

Everton to win: Leicester weren’t quite themselves on the weekend at home against Norwich. Everton have to recognise that this is their one big shot at success this season and should be targeting a full-on assault on the EFL Cup. Home win.
