Leicester City vs Everton | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Here we have one true English spectacle. The Foxes will meet with Everton, at their Kings Power stadium, and try to extend their positive streak. The Toffees are aiming three points too, which is why we expect an interesting, and above all efficient clash. Both sides prefer to play open and attacking football, and that is something which indicates that attractive football is ahead of us.
Newcastle was the latest victim of the Foxes, who were excellent in the north of the country. They won 0:2, and took three very valuable points. The Toffees smashed Fulham at home, 3:0, regaining some the lost self-esteem in that match.
Three successes in a row for Puel’s team are a proof that we were right once we said that this squad has enormous potential. The results came a bit earlier than we thought, but that doesn’t matter. The Foxes are much better at home than on the road, and they have three wins and only one loss, to Liverpool, 1:2, in all competitions since the season started. What is noticeable is that Vardy and the boys always scored at least two goals when winning. And that isn’t applying only to the games at Kings Power but in general. Five of the previous seven events ended with over 2.5 goals and two which haven’t, were this one against Newcastle and the one before that in the English Football League Cup, against the Wolves away, 0:0.
The Toffees too, have productive events in terms of goals. Seven of latest nine saw three or more, and the same situation is with both teams to score. Against Fulham, Marco Silva and his players were very inspired, and the final result could have been much higher when looking their dominance on the pitch. After a long time, they kept a clean sheet, and what was the impressive fact about it is that Fulham didn’t have a single shot on target during the whole 90 minutes. But, what frightens the fans is the defensive performance on the road. In three games since the season started, Toffees allowed two goals in each, and haven’t won a single game.

Leicester City vs Everton | Top Betting Tip: Draw (2-2)
We are sure about one thing, and that is high efficiency. It is not only because of the recent tradition. Simply, the style of play on both sides is offensive-minded, and both Puel and Silva are not the kinds of managers who like to play slow and dull football. Expect many counter-attacks, high intensity, and numerous shoots from outside the box. It will also be a clash of two fantastic players, who amazed the fans this season. James Madison from Leicester and Richarlison from Everton. These guys are the leaders of their respective teams. Now, when speaking about the final outcome and the winner of this event, a draw looks to be the most reasonable decision. Leicester is good, and they do play at home, but still, we are not so sure in their consistency. Everton has excellent players, who know how to use the tiniest mistake of the rival. Because of that, our tipsters gave their final word, Leicester – Everton 2:2.
