Everton will entertain Leicester City at Goodison Park on Wednesday night as both sides look to get the better of each other in this Premier League match. The Toffees managed to secure a 1-0 win over Manchester United in their last league game, so they will be full of confidence ahead of this match. In contrast, the Foxes suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United last weekend which has halted their momentum ahead of this midweek game.
Everton vs Leicester City: Talking Tactics
Frank Lampard will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could instruct his men to defend their penalty box well and try to catch the Leicester defenders off-guard on the counter.
Brendan Rodgers will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and might ask his players to dominate the ball and engineer enough clear-cut chances to win this league clash at Merseyside.
Andros Townsend, Tom Davies and Nathan Patterson will be sidelined for this game. Otherwise, the Toffees have no fresh injury concerns to cope with in midweek.
Everton Predicted XI
Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Mykolenko; Allan, Delph, Iwobi; Gordon, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
Wilfred Ndidi, Danny Ward, Ryan Bertrand and Jamie Vardy will all miss this game due to injuries. Boubakary Soumare is also a major doubt for this game as he is still recovering from a muscle problem.
Leicester City Predicted XI
Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Fofana, Castagne; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho
Jordan Pickford will have to make a few good saves at the back if the Toffees are to keep a clean sheet in this game. Both Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload on their own up top.
The visitors will rely on the creativity of Youri Tielemans, James Maddison and Harvey Barnes as they look to collectively produce a productive performance in midweek.
Kasper Schmeichel will be expected to make some solid stops if Leicester are to come out on top in this game.
