Walcott and Richarlison could expose Leicester defence

Everton pace can unsettle Foxes

Richarlison has settled in well at Goodison Park
1 of 1

Kick-off 3pm Saturday

Everton crashed out of the EFL Cup with a shootout loss to Southampton on Tuesday but their Premier League performances have been improving and they look capable of edging a tight match against Leicester.

After back-to-back wins, Leicester are up to eighth and are not far off where their fans think they should be.

However, the Foxes' defence has looked vulnerable against top forwards and they could be exposed by the pace of Theo Walcott and Richarlison and the guile of Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Everton
1pt 13-5 bet365, Betfred, 188Bet
