​High-flying Leicester City welcome under-performing Everton to the King Power Stadium on Sunday. 

After Manchester City slipped up at Newcastle on Saturday, the visitors - currently second in the table - know a win will take them three points clear of Pep Guardiola's side in the Premier League. 

Victory would be Leicester's seventh win on the bounce in all competitions, as they continue their hugely impressive season under the guidance of Brendan Rogers. 

​Everton meanwhile are a team out of sorts and out of form, with Marco Silva seemingly now having to save his job on a weekly basis. 

The Toffees slipped to a disappointing home defeat to relegation-threatened Norwich last week, leaving them just two points clear of the drop zone. 

Thanks to Opta, here are all the facts and stats you need to know ahead of the game.

Not a Draw in Sight

None of the last eight Premier League meetings between ​Leicester and Everton have ended all square, with both sides winning four apiece. Before that run, Leicester had only won four of their previous 30 top-flight meetings with Everton (W4 D14 L12).

Everton won this fixture 2-1 last season, with Wes Morgan seeing red for the hosts. However, Leicester have not lost consecutive home league games against Everton since December 1997, while Everton are winless in their last 32 away league games against sides starting the day in the top four (D10 L22). 

Their last victory came nine years ago, as Tim Cahill and Leighton Baines grabbed the goals as the Toffees beat Manchester City 2-1 in December 2010.

Flying Form

Leicester are looking to win six consecutive top-flight matches for the first time since their club-record run of seven way back in March 1963. The Foxes have won their last five in the Premier League by a staggering combined score of 17-1, keeping a clean sheet in each of the last four.

This is a huge upturn in fortunes since Brendan Rogers took the Leicester hot seat. After losing five of their last six Premier League home games under Claude Puel, the Foxes have lost just one of their subsequent 12 at the King Power Stadium (W9 D2). Leicester are unbeaten at home so far in this campaign (W5 D1).

Corner Vulnerability

Despite facing the fifth-fewest number of corners (55), and having faced the joint-second fewest number of shots from corners (14), no side has conceded more goals from such situations than Everton (4) in the Premier League this season.

Jamie Vardy Eyes a Half Century


Jamie Vardy has scored 12 goals in his last 12 Premier League home games. In total, he has 48 goals in 94 games at the King Power Stadium in the competition and could become the first player to reach 50 at the ground in the top flight.

His form under Brendan Rogers has been remarkable. There are 250 occurrences of a player scoring over 20 goals under a specific manager in the Premier League. Of those, only Sergio Aguero under Manuel Pellegrini (one every 96 minutes) has a better minutes-per-goal ratio than Jamie Vardy under Brendan Rodgers at Leicester (one every 98 minutes).
