Everton will be looking to heap more misery on Leicester City when they travel to the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day. Although the early season momentum has disappeared for the Toffees, they will be fairly pleased with the way things have gone up until this point.

Ronald Koeman came in with lots of expectations and the fact that he was supposedly given the green light to make the desired signings made the fans more expectant.

There haven’t been any major alarms till now and other than Romelu Lukaku’s recurring goal-droughts, the team has looked well-settled.

There will likely be some additions in January in light of the injury to Yannick Bolasie. With the team looking fairly well-settled, an encouraging 2nd half of the season is on the cards for the Goodison Park outfit.

Maarten Stekelenburg is a doubt for the Boxing Day trip to the King Power Stadium due to the leg injury that forced him off against Liverpool, while James McCarthy has been ruled out for two to three weeks with a hamstring injury. Bolasie and Besic are long-term absentees.

10-man Leicester City showed great spirit to bounce back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 against Stoke City and Ranieri will be expecting a similar sort of display against Everton as well.

Here is our Predicted 4-2-3-1 Everton Lineup Vs Leicester City.

PREDICTED EVERTON LINE-UP VS LEICESTER CITY (4-2-3-1)

DEFENCE

Joel Robles might be in for a rare appearance with doubts lingering over Stekelenburg’s availability. He will look to impress the boss with Stekelenburg’s form having taken a hit in the last couple of month.

Seamus Coleman has been excellent in the past few weeks and his attacking play has seen an upswing. It will be an interesting battle between Fuchs and Coleman.

Ashley Williams and Funes Mori are likely to be stationed at centre-back although Phil Jagielka offers an alternative. Leighton Baines will continue at left-back.
