Leicester vs Everton– Sunday 29th October 2017 – 16:00 - Sky Sports Football

Leicester are 11/10 with Jamie Vardy at 7/2 to score first.

Leicester host Everton at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon, in the second of the Super Sunday fixtures.

The Foxes come into this match on the back of a 2-1 win against Swansea, a great result for the then managerless Foxes.

Federico Fernandez scored the Foxes opener, with the defender, unfortunately, putting the ball into his own net (24).

Shinji Okazaki made it 2-0 to Michael Appleton's men (49), with the Foxes looking for their first win after Shakespeare's sacking.

Alfie Mawson pulled one back for Swansea (56), but it proved to be a mere consolation as Clement's side lost another home match.



New Manager

Leicester unveiled Claude Puel as their new manager this week, with the Frenchman replacing Craig Shakespeare.

They have been very unlucky with their early fixtures, but this win could be the turning point in their season.

The Foxes also won their midweek match against Leeds in the Carabao Cup 3-1, a win here will be three in a week.

In Puel they have secured themselves a solid and unlucky manager, who was needlessly sacked after a decent debut season with Southampton.

Leicester Favourites

Claude Puel's side come into this match as the favourites, with home advantage informing the bookies.

This will be a tough match for Leicester, with Everton another club who dispensed with their manager recently.

Leicester will be looking to make it four wins in six matches against Everton.

Tough Match

Everton come into this match in poor form, losing their last match 5-2 at home against Arsenal,  a result that ultimately cost Ronald Koeman his job.

Wayne Rooney (12) opened the scoring for the Toffees against the run of play, with Idrisa Gueye's pressing allowing Rooney the chance to strike past Cech.

Nacho Monreal (40) proved an unlikely source to equalise, with the defender converting a close-range finish.

Mesut Ozil (53) combined with Alexis Sanchez to head Arsenal into the lead, with the German putting aside speculation linking him with United.

Idrisa Gueye compounded Everton's afternoon when he was sent off (68), for a second bookable offence and daft challenge.

Alexandre Lacazette grabbed another for the Gunners five minutes later to make it 3-1 (74).

Aaron Ramsey (90) made it 4-1 to Arsenal, before Alexis Sanchez made it 5-2 and completing an emphatic scoreline (90+5).

Everton did grab another consolation in between those two Arsenal goals, with Oumar Niasse capitalising on a huge mistake from Arsenal (90+3).

Wins Needed

It has been a tough run for Everton and they are winless in their last six matches.

They have lost four and drawn two of their last six games, with stand-in manager David Unsworth looking to secure the manager's berth.

The Toffees also lost their midweek encounter against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, losing 2-1.

Everton find themselves in 18th place in the Premier League, with just eight points from their nine matches.


Toffees Underdogs

Everton come into this match as underdogs, with their poor recent form and home advantage informing the bookies.

David Unsworth will be looking to win this fixture, putting his name in pole position for the vacant manager's job.

The Baggies will be looking for their 37th win in 99 matches against Leicester.

Everton are 5/2 with Wayne Rooney at 6/1 to open the scoring.
