Everton – Leicester City | 27/01/2021

Everton and Leicester City face off at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening, both aiming to maintain their impressive Premier League form. The Toffees have won five of their last six top-flight games, while Leicester have won three in a row in the competition and are unbeaten in six.

Top-four chasing Everton have won six of their last ten competitive matches inside 90 mins, and four of those victories were accompanied by a clean sheet, including a 2-0 win vs Leicester City. In turn, they could attain a first Premier League (PL) H2H double since 2016/17, though their record in return PL H2Hs after winning the first reads: W1, D3, L1.

In addition to scoring before the 30th minute in three consecutive matches, the ‘Toffees’ last conceded more than a solitary goal in a PL fixture back in November. They’ve conceded only five times across the eight PL matches since (W5, D1, L2), with six of those opponents failing to attempt more than 3.5 shots on target.

Though trailing in an 11-game league H2H streak without a draw by just the odd game (W5, L6), Leicester City come into this fixture in strong form, with no defeat in eight competitive matches (W6, D2). They’ve been ruthless in attack during that sequence, netting 2+ goals in seven of the games.

Only Manchester United have picked up more PL points on the road so far this season than Brendan Rodgers’ men (W7, D1, L1). In these away matches, they’ve been at their most lethal in the closing 30 minutes, scoring ten times in this period whilst conceding only three goals in response.
