Everton were regarded as more likely to break into the top four than Leicester City at the beginning of the season, although the two sides have been poles apart so far this campaign, with the Foxes having the time of their lives under Brendan Rodgers.

While some of the players in the squad were part of the incredible 2016 Premier League triumph, there are others who are hungry for that sort of success this time around and that includes the likes of James Maddison, Youri Tielemans and Cagyar Soyuncu.

Soyuncu has effectively replaced Harry Maguire in central defence and the supporters have barely noticed the absence of the England player, with Leicester trading as strong favourites to win this televised clash against an Everton side who have largely struggled on the road.

William Hill offer 4/5 about Leicester claiming three points and they recently managed to beat Arsenal by a 2-0 scoreline, with the defence looking stout and the Midlands side creating any number of chances against the Gunners before finally getting the breakthrough.

Indeed, since drawing 0-0 with Wolves in their opening match, it has been five straight home wins for Rodgers’ side who are now firmly in the mix for a top four spot and could even be considered as title outsiders.

As for Everton, they have fourteen points on the board after twelve games played at the time of writing, with the Toffees having only just earned their first away win of the season when triumphing at Southampton.

The fact that they won 2-1 against a Saints team who are really low on confidence wasn’t necessarily the most impressive result, especially as Leicester recently put nine past the same opponents.

Marco Silva still appears to be under pressure at Goodison Park, although you can back the visitors at 7/2 to claim a surprise away victory at the King Power even if it’s hard to be confident about their chances when you consider they have lost four of their six away matches.

Strange as it may sound, Everton would be delighted to claim a point from this fixture, with Unibet going 11/4 about the match ending all square, although the majority of customers will be loading up the Foxes into their accumulator and hoping that they are banker material.

Asian Handicap

Leicester’s home form has been excellent, with just three goals conceded in six games at the King Power Stadium. Bournemouth, Newcastle and Arsenal have been beaten by sizeable margins, while recent away victories at Southampton and Palace also saw the Foxes win by at least two goals.

Therefore, Leicester -1.5 is available at 47/20 for those that don’t want to back Brendan Rodgers’ side to win at odds-on and actually fancy them to enjoy a two-goal margin of victory.

If you think they can win by at least three goals, then Unibet have 13/2 about Leicester -2.5 although perhaps Everton will show some resurgence on the road after that win at St Mary’s.

It’s clear that both teams have a similarly sized budget and Everton +0.5 would mean you get the draw on your side as well as the home win, with BetVictor going 12/11 about that outcome.

First Goalscorer

Look no further than Jamie Vardy if you’re looking for a decent runner in the First Goalscorer market, with the Leicester marksman tearing it up in the Premier League this season and he’s recently had the international break to have a breather.

Vardy is a 7/2 chance to score the opening goal in this encounter, with James Maddison starting to click into gear in the number 10 position, with the former Norwich midfielder trading at 7/1 to bag the opener.

Everton have a lack of recognised striker up top and the Moise Kean experiment is not working out well. Richarlison might represent their best chance of scoring the first goal although even that’s not an inspiring pick.

Over / Under Goals

This is an interesting market in that Leicester are averaging nearly three goals at the King Power Stadium although they are keeping things very tight from a defensive point-of-view.

If you think that there will be Over 2.5 Goals, William Hill have 4/5 about three goals or more being scored. Alternatively, those expecting a high-scoring encounter can back the 21/10 with Paddy Power about Over 3.5 Goals.
