LEICESTER VS EVERTON
KICK OFF: Saturday 6th Oct 2018 | 16:00 CET
PREMIER LEAGUE WK8 | THE KING POWER STADIUM
Can Leicester’s confidence on home turf win the day against Everton?
Leicester are going strong, regardless of their mixed results. Everton have come up against a brick wall, having lost successive games to West Ham and Arsenal.
The Foxes usually put in electrifying performances when playing at home; such is the character that saw them come from behind to defeat Huddersfield in their last match. James Maddison continues to impress with three goals and an assist so far, and Jamie Vardy is still a serious goal threat. At the moment, there’s a good mood in the team and a high level of collectiveness.
Everton is yet to win an away game, though it’s still early in the season. They’ve collected just two points on the road from three games. The match against Arsenal was always going to be difficult, but they could’ve had three points at Bournemouth having led by two goals. This fixture will be a challenge against a Leicester side that excels on home soil.
Both teams have the attacking quality to produce goals, but Maddison can be the difference for Leicester.
Key Match Facts
- Leicester has averaged two goals in each of their last five home games.
- Everton has failed to score just once in six games this season (against Arsenal).
