Everton vs Leicester predictions

Everton’s winless streak continued last weekend as they faced off with West Brom, although that 1-1 draw was largely overshadowed by the serious injury sustained by James McCarthy.

This makes it seven games without victory for The Toffees, although the resurgence that Sam Allardyce orchestrated earlier this season does mean they remain in a fairly comfortable 9th position in the Premier League, six points above the drop zone and with a lot of bodies between them and danger.

Their home form is looking a bit better as well to be fair. They have only lost one of their last seven league home games, drawing twice and winning the remaining four. They will be hopeful of picking up another three points against Leicester, although it won’t be an easy task.

The visitors were in action in the FA Cup on Saturday, making the short trip to Peterborough and coming away 5-1 victors to extend their unbeaten streak to six matches in all competitions. This leaves them in a promising 7th position, six points above their opponents on Wednesday.

The Foxes don’t have the best record away from home though. They are winless in their last three away games in the Premier League and have only won three times all season. All of these wins have come against teams in the bottom six as well, and since the start of the 2016/17 league campaign they have only won one of their 15 matches away to top half sides.

12 of these 15 have ended in defeat as well, so backing an Everton Draw No Bet here looks a great shout, alongside a 2-1 correct score predictions. We’re not expecting it to be a fast starter though. Leicester have gone in level at the break in nine of their 12 away games this season and Everton have been drawing at half time in seven of their home games, so we’re also backing a Draw/Everton Half-Time/Full-Time result.

Wayne Rooney looks the likeliest candidate to make the difference. The Toffees man has scored 80% of his Premier League goals from inside the box, and considering Leicester have conceded all of their away goals from inside the area, backing him to find the net looks a good choice.
