Leicester City predicted lineup vs Everton: Match Preview
Leicester City hosted Frank Lampard’s Chelsea at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League this week, and defeated the Blues 2-0. The win takes the Foxes above the likes of Man United, Man City and defending champions Liverpool on top of the Premier League table. They could keep hold of the top spot if United and City drop points in their games later this week. Brendan Rodgers has been praised for his work at Leicester, leading them to a Europa League spot last season and being one among the teams in the Premier League title race this season.
Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi opened the scoring against Chelsea, striking from range into the bottom-left corner. The shot deflected off the post on its way into the back of the net, and Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy had no chance at saving it. In the 41st minute, Foxes midfielder James Maddison doubled his side’s lead, arriving late to steer the ball into the back of the net, off a pass from Marc Albrighton.
Brendan Rodgers will expect a similar performance from his side against Everton when they travel to the Merseyside. Leicester will hope to continue their good run, having not lost in 7 matches. Ironically, their last defeat came against Everton at the King Power Stadium in a 2-0 loss, which saw goals from Richarlison and Mason Holgate of Everton.
