Kick-off: 1800, 16/12/2020
Stadium: King Power Stadium
TV: Amazon Prime
Leicester and Everton both enjoyed good wins over the weekend and we feel Wednesday night’s clash at King Power Stadium could go either way.
That ties in with the fact that the last five Premier League meetings between these teams have been settled by a single-goal margin, with the Toffees prevailing three times and City twice.
Punters can get 27/20 for either side to win by exactly one goal again here and that is our first Leicester vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester completed a hat-trick of victories in all competitions when beating Brighton 3-0 on Sunday.
James Maddison bagged a brace either side of Jamie Vardy’s 12th strike of the season, as the Foxes moved to within a point of the top of the table.
Brendan Rodgers played down talk of a title challenge, stating: “It is not something we are thinking about, we are just enjoying our football.
“We will move up and down the league, I think. The league is changing all the time and we are just thinking about ourselves and performing well.”
City look very comfortable on the ball and are always a threat going forward, but Jonny Evans being suspended for picking up a fifth yellow card of the campaign could leave them stretched at the back.
“It’s a huge blow when he doesn’t play, it’s a shame and we will miss him,” admitted Rodgers. “But we will have to cope without him, as we have done with other players this season.”
In a game which could feature lots of end-to-end action and see-saw in terms of who is on top, 21/4 for either team to lead and then lose catches the eye from the Leicester vs Everton odds.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Justin, Fofana, Evans, Fuchs, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Ndidi, Vardy, Perez.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton overcame some defensive injury issues to edge out an in-form Chelsea outfit 1-0 at Goodison Park and climb back up to seventh.
Gylfi Sigurdsson scored from a decisive 22nd-minute spot-kick and then the Toffees held firm, despite having only 28 per cent of the possession.
Carlo Ancelotti was relieved to secure just a second victory in eight league matches, commenting: “We needed this performance, we needed these points.
“After a difficult period, we were able to move on. You cannot win against Chelsea if you don’t have a good performance.”
That was a first top-flight clean sheet since the opening day of the season, though, so Everton may need to be more attack-minded to get something out of this game.
Richarlison could be one to watch out for with regards goalscorer bets, as he has broken the deadlock in three of the last four league games between these teams.
Let’s add 13/2 for the Brazil striker to open the scoring again to our Leicester vs Everton betting tips.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Holgate, Keane, Mina, Godfrey, Allan, Sigurdsson, Doucoure, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Iwobi.
LEICESTER 3-0 Brighton – James Maddison (2), Jamie Vardy
EVERTON 1-0 Chelsea – Gylfi Sigurdsson (pen)
Head-to-head: Everton 2-1 Leicester, Everton 2-2 Leicester, Leicester 2-1 Everton, Everton 0-1 Leicester, Leicester 1-2 Everton
