​Leicester go in search of a sixth Premier League win in a row when they host a struggling Everton side this Sunday.

The Foxes currently sit second in the table following a magnificent start to the season. They've won their last five league games on the bounce, including a record-breaking 9-0 win over Southampton.


Brendan Rodgers' side have announced themselves as title contenders, with their performances this season displaying their quality.

By contrast, ​Everton have had a horrendous start to the season and pressure is mounting on boss Marco Silva. His side sit 16th in the league having won only four times all season. A 2-0 home loss to Norwich last time out did nothing to ease the pressure.

It will be an intriguing game and one that many see as vital to Marco Silva future prospects. Another loss could spell the end for the Portuguese boss. For Leicester and Rodgers, however, they will go in search of another three points to continue their title challenge.

Team News

One of the things that is helping ​Leicester this season is their lack of injuries. Once again, they have a mainly clean bill of health. The only concern is Jonny Evans who was forced off with cramp last weekend.

However, Rodgers is likely to name an unchanged starting XI - a team which has won four straight ​Premier League games without conceding.

On the other hand, Everton's home loss to Norwich might result in wholesale changes by Silva. A host of players remain unavailable for the Toffees mostly in attacking areas with Gylfi Sigurdsson, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Moise Kean all battling injuries. 


The English defensive duo of Leighton Baines and Michael Keane remain sidelined, so Mason Holgate and Yerry Mina will continue their centre back partnership.

Fabian Delph and Bernard are two names pushing for a start this weekend as they continue their recoveries from injury. Summer signing Alex Iwobi is also likely to come into the side.

Potential Lineups

LeicesterSchmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Perez, Maddison, Tielemans, Barnes; Vardy​.
Everton​Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Holgate, Digne; Davies, Delph; Walcott, Iwobi, Richarlison; Tosun.

Head to Head Record

Everton have the slight edge in clashes between these two, with 42 wins to Leicester's 36 and 32 draws.

Since Leicester's return to the top flight, the games have been very equal. The sides have played ten times and interestingly there have been four wins each and two 2-2 draws.

Jamie Vardy

The most recent fixture finished 1-0 to Leicester at Goodison Park, thanks to a goal from Foxes talisman ​Jamie Vardy

It seems that they have been very evenly matched in recent games - whether or not that continues this weekend will be interesting to see.

Recent Form

As mentioned, Leicester have been in unbelievable form, winning their last five Premier League games. During this run, they have scored 17 goals and only conceded once - keeping four back-to-back clean sheets.

Their only two losses this season have come away at Liverpool and Manchester United.

Conversely, Everton have been in rubbish form all season. They've won only four times all season which has resulted in them remaining around the bottom three.

Marco Silva

Their mini revival which saw them pick up seven points from a possible 12 came to an abrupt end last weekend with a shocking 2-0 home defeat to then-bottom side ​Norwich.

The form books point to a sixth consecutive Premier League win for the Foxes.

Here are both sides' last five results.

Brighton 0-2 Leicester (23/11)Everton 0-2 Norwich (23/11)
Leicester 2-0 Arsenal (9/11)Southampton 1-2 Everton (9/11)
Crystal Palace 0-2 Leicester (3/11)​​Everton 1-1 Tottenham (3/11)
Burton Albion 1-3 Leicester (29/10)​Everton 2-0 Watford (29/10)
​Southampton 0-9 Leicester (25/10)Brighton 3-2 Everton (26/10)


The form suggests that this will be a sixth straight Premier League win for the Foxes - and that's the prediction here.

Marco Silva and Everton look out of ideas and a fresh face (or David Moyes) in the dugout might help. Leicester are currently too good for this poor Everton side and will walk away with victory.

James Maddison,Jamie Vardy

A fourth 2-0 win in a row for Leicester as they continue their title challenge with Jamie Vardy continuing his prolific goalscoring form could be on the cards.

Prediction: Leicester 2-0 Everton
