Leicester City will face off against Everton at Goodison Park this Saturday evening as they try to collect maximum points on the road in the Premier League. The Foxes suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of Manchester City recently, so they will be eager to bounce back with a positive result versus the Toffees this weekend.
Brendan Rodgers will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make one change to his starting XI for this game. Boubakary Soumaré will probably get the nod to play from the start while Youri Tielemans drops to the bench.
4-3-3 Leicester City Predicted Lineup To Face Everton
Danny Ward will function in goal for the East Midlands club after shipping in one goal in his last league outing. Wout Faes will play alongside Daniel Amartey at the heart of Rodgers’ backline as they try to keep the Everton attackers at bay during the 90 minutes.
Timothy Castagne will fill in at right-back while James Justin hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them could get the license to get forward and express themselves in the opponent’s half.
Caglar Soyuncu will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he provides cover for the centre-back positions.
Rodgers could name a midfield comprised of Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Boubakary Soumaré and Youri Tielemans as they look to win the 50-50 battles at the centre of the park. Soumare has to find a way to offer adequate protection for the Leicester backline.
Tielemans will be responsible for engineering a few inviting chances for his teammates on the attacking third of the field.
Wilfred Ndidi and Dennis Praet will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his opportunity to impress in the second half if required.
Harvey Barnes will hope to give a good account of himself on the left flank while James Maddison looks to put in a good display from the right.
Jamie Vardy will lead the charge for the Foxes in the final third. The English forward has to find a way to cause a few problems for the Everton centre-backs during the 90 minutes.
Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka will be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if the Foxes are in need of a goal by then.
