Reason For Everton vs Leicester City Predictions

  • Everton are yet to taste defeat under the temporary stewardship of Duncan Ferguson (two matches).
  • Leicester are unbeaten in 10 games, nine of which they’ve emerged victorious from.
  • Leicester have scored two or more goals in nine of their last 10 matches.

Everton on the up?

In little more than a week, the mood has changed at Everton. It was all doom and gloom when Marco Silva was given his marching orders, but two games later and the Toffees appear to be on the up. They’re yet to appoint a permanent manager, though they’re doing just fine under the temporary stewardship of ex-player Duncan Ferguson, who has overseen a home win against Chelsea and a draw at Old Trafford.

Last time out, Everton weren’t the better side as they drew 1-1 at United, but they certainly weren’t bowled over, while they defended much better than they ever really did under Silva this term. More importantly, when beating Chelsea at this venue just over a week ago, Ferguson’s men impressed. They were proactive in possession, productive in the final third and a huge threat on the break, which bodes well ahead of a match against a Leicester side that will probably try to dictate possession.

Leicester strong on travels

Leicester’s campaign has been an excellent one, there can be no denying that. Under Brendan Rodgers, the Foxes have become a very, very strong side; one that is not just creative and explosive in the final third, but that dominates games and registers regular results.

Playing away from home has been little problem for Leicester of late, as they come into this match having won each of their five travelling games, scoring a whopping 20 goals and conceding just two in the process.

Leicester did draw at the weekend, but that result shouldn’t have dented their confidence too much. After all, they got the better of Everton just over a fortnight ago. However, that victory was a narrow one and it was also before Big Dunc reinvigorated Wednesday’s hosts.

Goals on the cards at Goodison

In the betting, ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’ looks a viable option at current prices. Not only did both teams notch in a game where three goals went in when they met recently, but the efforts of both since point towards no shortage of goals.

Leicester’s attacking quality has been clear to see for some time now. The visitors have scored an average of four goals in their last five on the road, notching at least twice in each of those five.

Add in the fact Everton have scored four in two under Big Dunc, notching three and generally attacking well at this venue when beating Chelsea, and a high-scoring game begins to hold plenty of appeal. The fact neither have kept a clean sheet in either of their last two further fuels this selection. For our correct score prediction, we’re backing a 2-2 draw.
