Everton

Everton will head into the match against Leicester on the back of a 3-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday at Goodison Park in the fourth round of the FA Cup. It followed a 2-1 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home in the Premier League.

Leicester City

Leicester City are in good form at the moment and, just like Everton, are challenging for the Champions League places. The Foxes are as high as third in the Premier League table with 38 points from 19 matches, just three points behind leaders Manchester City.

Brendan Rodgers’s side will head into the match against Everton on the back of  a 3-1 victory over Championship club Brentford away from home in the fourth round of the FA Cup. It followed a 2-0 victory over Chelsea at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League.

Team News:

James Vardy is on the sidelines, as the star striker is recuperating after a hernia operation. Dennis Praet and Wes Morgan are injured.
