Leicester vs Everton Match Details
Leicester vs Everton Kicks-off at 4.30pm on Sunday 1 December at the King Power Stadium. The match is being shown live on Sky Sports.
Leicester have been awesome at the King Power Stadium this season. They started slowly with a respectable 0-0 draw against Wolves and have since beaten Bournemouth 3-1, Tottenham 2-1, Newcastle 5-0, Burnley 2-1, and Arsenal 2-0.
Brendon Rogers also appears to be improving Leicester week by week. They possess the meanest defence, which is no mean feat considering they’ve already played Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham, Liverpool, and Arsenal. They’re also the Premier League’s second-highest scorers behind Manchester City, and would still be the fourth-highest scorers even if you subtracted the nine goals they scored against Southampton.
They’ve also followed that 9-0 win with 2-0 wins over Crystal Palace, Arsenal, and Brighton, meaning they’ve not conceded a Premier League goal for over a month.
There’s talk that Everton may have a new manager in charge by kick-off, but he’ll have to have some serious motivational skills to instantly return Everton to the team that finished eighth last season.
Everton have been poor away from home this season, drawing 0-0 at Crystal Palace before losing 2-0 at Aston Villa, 3-1 at Bournemouth, 1-0 at Burnley, and 3-2 at Brighton.
They turned that form around with a 2-1 win at Southampton but remember Leicester won 9-0 there. Everton also lacked the skills to unlock a Norwich defence at home last week and they’re up against the meanest defence in the Premier League this week.
Leicester vs Everton Head-To-Heads
If Everton have anything going for them it’s they have a better head-to-head record than Leicester, with eight wins compared to five. Everton have also won four of their 13 matches at Leicester.
Ironically, both of last season’s matches were won by the away team, but it was Leicester that won their last meeting. More significantly, Leicester dominated both fixtures in 2015/16 when they won the title.
