Leicester vs Everton
Venue: King Power Stadium
Kick off: 3PM
Nigeria’s duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfried Ndidi will taste action as Leicester looks for a third Premier League win in a row when they host Everton this afternoon.
The Foxes are eighth in the table after beating Huddersfield and Newcastle in their last two matches.
“We must maintain our consistency,” said manager Claude Puel. “But Everton have a consistent and quality squad and it will be a tough game for us, a good test.
“There is not much between the two teams in the league table and this is an important part of the season because a game can make a big difference in this moment of the season.
“They have good attributes and good players and good ambition, as we saw in the transfer window in the summer when they were busy. They play the ball on the floor and are technically good.”
Leicester’s James Maddison will be looking to go into the international break on a positive note after receiving his first call-up to the England squad for games against Croatia and Spain.
Everton have had an inconsistent start to the season, winning two, losing two and drawing three of their seven Premier League matches.
However, they did win in their last league match, beating Fulham 3-0 at Goodison Park.
Leicester manager Claude Puel has urged James Maddison to remain focused after being called up to the England squad for the first time.
Leicester City possible XI: Schmeichel, Amartey, Chilwell, Morgan, Maguire, Ndidi, Mendy, Pereira, Iheanacho, Maddison, Vardy.
Everton possible XI: Pickford, Kenny, Digne, Keane, Zouma, Davies, Gueye, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Tosun.
