Everton and Leicester have both produced some more encouraging efforts of late and look evenly matched ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash.
Their last couple of encounters at Goodison Park have ended all square and another tight tussle is expected on Merseyside this weekend.
Punters can get 23/10 for a draw and that is our initial Everton vs Leicester prediction.
Everton have recovered well from losing a trio of tough fixtures, beating Crystal Palace 3-0 before a goalless stalemate at Fulham.
Frank Lampard hailed Jordan Pickford’s attitude after his key saves helped the Toffees to secure a point at Craven Cottage.
Fulham have been scoring freely this term and had 24 shots, with nine on target, but were unable to find the back of the net.
Lampard said of Pickford: “A really good performance from him. He trains well every day, he’s got a great attitude.
“He’s been generally England’s number one and I know how important keepers are, they can make or break you as a coach or as a team.
“If we talk about expected goals and these things – then when he plays like that he wins you points, there’s no doubt.”
Everton’s six home games this season have featured just 10 goals, the lowest tally in the top flight.
That makes Everton vs Leicester odds.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Tarkowski, Mykolenko, Coleman, Coady, Onana, Gueye, Calvert-Lewin, Gordon, Gray, Iwobi.
Everton centre-backs Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina are back in training but are not in contention. Right-back Nathan Patterson could come back into the side after a substitute appearance last weekend on his return from injury.
Leicester City Odds
Leicester are still in the bottom three following last Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Manchester City but showed plenty of spirit against the champions.
The Foxes were only undone by a superb Kevin De Bruyne free-kick on 49 minutes and managed to apply plenty of pressure late on.
“With a bit more finesse and clinical edge in the final third, we could have got something,” commented Brendan Rodgers.
“The past few weeks, the players have shown resilience and that’s what supporters want to see. Marry that to our football and we can be a half-decent team.”
Leicester had previously thumped Wolves 4-0 at Molineux to make it three wins in five games, as they look to rally from a nightmare start to the campaign.
All the signs suggest that City are going in the right direction and we feel they can get something from this game.
The Foxes have drawn 1-1 on their last two trips to Goodison and 11/2 for that scoreline to come up again is added to our Everton vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Ward, Justin, Faes, Soyuncu, Amartey, Castagne, Barnes, Tielemans, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Vardy.
Rodgers will make a late call on captain Jonny Evans as he works his way back from a calf injury. Ricardo Pereira has made progress on his return from a ruptured Achilles but will not return until after the World Cup.
