Interesting game that awaits us at Goodison Park, when a motivated Everton receives the visit of the English champion Leicester City in a match for the third round of the FA Cup.
The games between these teams have always been fought and so the numbers say, both teams have won twice in their last 10 games at Goodison Park and tied 6 times and for a change, both games are a spice of revenge.
So, on the one hand are those led by Dutchman Ronald Koeman, Everton’s cast still have that anger of not having reached the final of this tournament, when in the last edition were eliminated by Manchester United in the semifinal and so this time Yes they want to achieve the mission.
Everton’s momentum is very good, they have only lost one chance in the last five games, where they have won three, a draw, but for the moment this is not enough to take fifth place with Arsenal with A difference of 11 points.
Meanwhile, those run by Italian Ranieri are not the team that won the Premier League last season, they are in the bottom of the classification, to be more accurate in the 15th place.
Unlike Everton, the Leicester City squad come from drawing on their visit to zero goals against Middlesbrough and so in their last five games only won in one shot, but despite this, they want to claim the rematch of that loss to Everton in December.
Thus, we believe that by the state of form of these teams, leads us to lean towards the victory of Everton, who is at a good time, scoring at least 2 goals in 4 of his last 5 games showing how deadly they are in the Attack with players like Lukaku and Mirallas.
Everton: Howard; L. Baines, A. Williams, Ramiro Funes Mori, S. Coleman; A. Lennon, I. Gueye, R. Barkley, K. Mirallas, T. Davies; R. Lukaku.
Leicester City: Kasper Schmeichel; C. Fuchs, R. Huth, W. Morgan, D. Simpson; A. King, M. Albrighton, D. Amartey; S. Okazaki, Jamie Vardy, R. Mahrez.
