Everton vs Leicester 15th match prediction
- Leicester has had a fantastic start to the Premier League season, with Brendan Rodgers keeping the Foxes in contention for the crown. His team is only two points behind Manchester United, and if they win both of their remaining games, they might draw level with their opponents on Wednesday.
- The Foxes’ match against Norwich City was postponed, and the rescheduled match against Everton will take place this week. With most of the first team players out due to injury or COVID-19, Leicester played fantastically against a top side like Liverpool, winning 1-0.
Brendan Rodgers will be hoping for a repeat performance with a young group that will be missing many more players due to AFCON commitments.
- Everton are looking to bounce back after a disappointing Premier League showing, while the Foxes are gradually getting back to their best- following a great showing in their last Premier League game, a 1-0 win against Liverpool.
- Leicester City is the favorites to win the game against the Toffees, according to our predictions, with a 2-1 win for the Foxes likely.
- Kelechi Iheanacho, Daniel Amartey, Nampalys Mendy, and Wilfred Ndidi are among the Leicester City players who have been called up for the AFCON. The Foxes are dealing with long-term injuries to James Justin and Wesley Fofana.
- The Toffees got off to a fast start this season, but they encountered a snag in November. Carlo Ancelotti, on the other hand, has put his side’s top-four ambitions back on track, with just two points separating them from the final Champions League qualification spot.
- This will be Everton’s first Premier League game in almost a fortnight, and Ancelotti will be hoping to take advantage of a Leicester side without Jamie Vardy and build on their 2-1 triumph against Wolves at Molineux earlier this month.
- Everton would move into fourth place with a win on Wednesday, with Tottenham and Liverpool clashing on Thursday.
- Leicester will be desperate to avoid defeat and allowing Everton to close the gap on them, but without Vardy — who had a minor hernia procedure last week — leading the line, this will be a true test of the visitors’ mettle and commitment without probably their most important player.
Everton vs Leicester Match Stats
Despite the fact that Leicester is a possession-based squad, they aren’t scared to get their shorts dirty. Rodgers’ team has made the third-most tackles in the Premier League this season (329), trailing only Leeds United (344) and Southampton’s very energetic Ralph Hasenhuttl (346).
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is one player who will try to break through Leicester’s tenacious midfield and hardworking defense.
The England international is the league’s third-highest scorer (11) and, although not scoring in the last five games, he scored in a 3-0 FA Cup triumph against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, so he comes into this match with confidence and a desire to end his mini-drought.

While a draw may not have been what Everton had hoped for to begin the second half, they know they have two games in hand on Leicester and can cut the gap later in the season. The good news for the Foxes is that, even without Vardy, they looked dangerous in the second half.
Barnes’ pace will cause difficulties until Vardy is fit enough to return if they can utilize him effectively.
The fact that Manchester United lost to Sheffield United will also give the Foxes hope, since they remain firmly in the title chase.
