Wednesday night will see a Premier League top-six fixture as third-placed Leicester City head to Merseyside to play sixth-place Everton. Both teams are in form heading into matchday 20. A victory for Brendan Rodgers’ team could send them to the top of the table depending on results for both Manchester clubs. Everton could rise as high as fourth, but need Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur to both drop points. Conveniently enough, Liverpool and Spurs play this week.
Both Premier League clubs are coming off of FA Cup fourth round wins. Leicester city came from behind to defeat Championship club Brentford 3-1. Everton also faced Championship opposition as they defeated Sheffield Wednesday 3-0.
Rodgers’ team head into matchday 20 having won three straight Premier League matches. They are unbeaten in six matches overall and are in fine form. They took 14 points from their last 18 on offer in the top flight.
Everton are also in great form heading into the match. Carlo Ancelotti’s team took 15 points from the last 18 on offer. They outscored opponents 8-3 during that six-match span. Everton did go to the King Power Stadium and defeated Leicester City 2-0 in December thanks to goals from Richarlison and Mason Holgate. Can Everton do the double over Leicester City and strengthen their own case for the top four?

Everton vs Leicester Team News
Ancelotti is in the hunt for a new goal scorer to take the weight off of striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Calvert-Lewin scored in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday night versus Sheffield Wednesday to continue his excellent form this season. Reports on Monday are linking Leicester City with Roma forward Edin Dzeko. The former Manchester City star is now 34. Tension is apparently rising at Roma due to a lack of playing time for the Bosnian.
Everton defensive midfielder Allan is ruled out of the match with a thigh strain. The former Napoli player is unlikely to return to the team until early February. Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are both ruled out of the match through injury. Niels Nkounkou is also ruled out due to an injury. Ancelotti could have forward Alex Iwobi and full-back Lucas Digne back from their respective injuries this week.
Leicester City’s title chase could take a hit after Jamie Vardy underwent a minor surgery on his groin last week. He is expected to return to training in around 10 days. Defender Wes Morgan is ruled out due to a back injury while Dennis Praet is ruled out until April with a thigh muscle issue. The good news for Rodgers is that midfielder James Maddison continued his great form at the weekend. He scored once more versus Brentford in the Foxes’ come from behind victory.
Everton vs Leicester Prediction
Both teams to score: YES @ 3/4 - BET NOW
Seven of the last 10 matches in all competitions between these clubs finished with both teams finding the back of the net. Coming off of an FA Cup fourth round match and having two games this week, Everton and Leicester City’s players should see some physical and mental fatigue. It could result in goals being scored compared to the 2-0 scoreline between them last time out in December.
James Maddison to score anytime @ 16/5 - BET NOW
James Maddison may finally be fulfilling his potential at Leicester City. He has tallied nine goals and seven assists in 24 matches in all competitions. Six of his goals have come in 17 Premier League matches. Maddison has bagged a goal in each of his last three league matches. With Vardy out of action due to having a surgery, Maddison could step up and get the goals to win the match for Leicester City.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 19/20 - BET NOW
Seven of the last 10 matches between these clubs finished with over 2.5 goals scored. Forget about the 2-0 win that Everton secured at the King Power Stadium in December. These clubs should play a thriller on Merseyside with goals going in to the back of the net at both ends. Vardy may be out of action, but Maddison is playing well and Leicester City may finally be showing other players can score goals.
Everton are also in good form heading into matchday 20. They will fancy their chances of getting a victory and move closer to the top four. A win for Everton would massively dent Leicester City’s title hopes. Manchester City are the favourite to win the title and have the best chance to do it. Don’t count out Leicester City from shocking the league, but to do it, they need to defeat Everton away on Wednesday night.
