Leicester vs Everton Betting Preview | 1 Dec 2019

Continuing to take the Premier League by storm and enjoying what is becoming a stellar purple patch, Leicester will look to keep their momentum at a high when they welcome Everton to the King Power on Sunday afternoon.

Opening the weekend sat second in the table and only behind runaway league leaders Liverpool, the Foxes find themselves in the midst of a six-match winning run across all competitions and a European return firmly on their agenda.

On the flip side, while the mood in Leicestershire might be skyrocketing, Everton find themselves enduring what has been a worrying run of form nearing closer to Christmas.

With Marco Silva coming under substantial scrutiny, the Blues suffered a 2-0 defeat against relegation scrappers Norwich last weekend and they still remain in their own battle at the foot of the table.

Sadly for Everton, traveling to Leicester as a huge underdog with the bookmakers and handed a 1-0 defeat when the two sides met back in January, you might be interested to know that the Foxes can be found at 4/6 with Coral to land back-to-back victories.

Who can stop Leicester?

Picking up a 2-0 win over Brighton last weekend and ending the Seagulls’ three-match winning run at the Amex, it is no surprise that Brendan Rodgers’ side are seen to be one of the leading contenders to secure a Champions League return next year.

Sat only behind Liverpool and already priced as low as 4/7 with Ladbrokes to clinch a top-four finish, the former Celtic boss has seen his side win each of their last five Premier League matches on the spin.

Unsurprisingly, one man who has continued to spearhead Leicester’s stellar run has been leading marksman, Jamie Vardy.

Once again finding the net on the South Coast last time out, the 32-year-old already has 12 Premier League goals this year and has also now found the net in each of his last five appearances on the bounce.

You might be interested to know that along with being pencilled in at 5/6 with 888sport to extend on his purple patch this weekend, the former England international can be found at 3/1 with William Hill to clinch the Golden Boot this season.

Silva’s last chance

Booed off by the Goodison Park faithful after suffering a 2-0 home defeat against relegation scrappers Norwich last weekend, fans on Merseyside have made it clear that they want Head Coach Marco Silva to be replaced in the dugout.

While the Everton board may have confirmed that Silva will be in charge for Sunday’s trip to the King Power, it is no surprise that the one-time Watford boss is seen to be one of the leading contenders to be given the boot.

The 42-year-old can be found at 2/1 with Paddy Power to be the next manager removed from his post.

Despite spending over £100million on new arrivals during the summer, the Blues will open the weekend way down in 16th and still within touching distance of joining the relegation battle.

Despite picking up a 2-1 win away at Southampton earlier in the month, that was Everton’s only victory on the road since the end of March and they have continued to show some glaring defensive issues.

You might be interested to know that Sunday’s guests can be found at 8/11 with Bet365 to once again ship over 1.5 goals on their travels.
