Can Everton continue their recent upturn in form when they host Leicester on Saturday? The champions have been struggling for results all season, and now they face a tough opener to their FA Cup campaign.
Everton vs Leicester Predictions
Can Everton improve on the FA Cup semi-final appearance last season? They kick off their potential cup run with a home tie against Premier League champions Leicester. It’s hard to see the Foxes taking this one seriously, they’ve got survival and the Champions League to worry about. Plus, they have a pretty awful record against the Toffees.
Leicester have conceded twice on their last six visits to this ground. On current form, that run is likely to continue. Leicester have conceded over two goals per game on average in their away league matches. Everton have scored two or more in five of their last six, so we’re backing the Toffees to score over 1.5 goals, which is 20/23 with Coral and our first Everton vs Leicester prediction.

We’re also backing a win to nil for Everton, as they’ve hit some impressive form. They’ve won three and drawn one of their last five, lifting them to seventh in the table. They kicked off 2017 with a 3-0 win over Southampton. Leicester come here on the back of a 0-0 at Middlesbrough, they average just 0.8 goals per game on the road. They are also making this trip without Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani, so we can’t see the Foxes scoring and that’s our second FA Cup betting tip for this one. Everton are 9/4 with Bet365 to win this clash to nil.

Everton vs Leicester Team News
Everton have quite a considerable injury list, with Muhamed Besic, Yannick Bolasie and Bryan Oviedo all out. They’re also expected to miss James McCarthy and Martin Stekelenburg here. Leicester welcome back Jamie Vardy from suspension, and they have no injury doubts. However, Mahrez, Slimami and Daniel Amartey are all away at the African Cup of Nations.
Everton vs Leicester Head to Head Stats
Leicester have won just one of their last six trips to Goodison Park. These two sides met just last month, with the Toffees claiming a 2-0 victory at the King Power Stadium. Could we see a repeat of that result on Saturday?
Everton vs Leicester Betting Odds
Given Everton’s strong scoring record against Leicester, it’s easy to see another comfortable win for Ronald Koeman’s side. They’re looking very solid at the back, while they should have a strong side named for this clash. With the Foxes coming in to this game in poor form, we’re backing another 2-0 win for Everton, which is 17/2 with Bet Victor and completes our Everton vs Leicester betting tips for the FA Cup this weekend.
