Analysis

There was also a severe lack of cutting edge for Leicester. The Foxes had 14 shots throughout the game but only two on target. It's that kind of statistic that has cost them so far this season.

Analysis

It goes without saying that Ancelotti got his set up bang on at the King Power Stadium. His side were concentrated, disciplined and professional. Yerry Mina, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Richarlison all caught the eye.

Leicester City 0-2 Everton

What does that do for the table I hear you say? Well, Everton rise to fifth and Leicester drop to fourth following Southampton's draw with Arsenal. It's still extremely tight at the top of the table.

Carlo Ancelotti on Leicester…

Meanwhile, the Everton boss is anticipating a sharp Foxes’ attack at the King Power Stadium. He said: “It is really difficult [to play against Leicester].

“They have players with quality, fast players, a fantastic striker in Vardy who is used to scoring in every game.

“Their best quality is their style of attack, it is really efficient.”

Brendan Rodgers on Everton...

The Foxes’ boss is expecting a buoyant Toffees side on Wednesday evening. He said: “They have a fantastic team of players. They started very well and then had injuries that knocked their consistency but they arrive into this game on the back of their best result of the season.

“They were very strong against Chelsea. It is so tight. There are lots of games, the gaps between games aren’t so big. You just have to get on with that.”

18:31a month ago

Everton Team News

Much like Rodgers, Ancelotti has a few injuries to contend with. Seamus Coleman and James Rodriguez are both injured and join the likes of Lucas Digne and Fabian Delph on the sidelines. Jean-Philippe Gbamin is on the road to recovery but is unlikely play a part before 2021.
18:29a month ago

Leicester City Team News

Jonny Evans will be missing through suspension for hosts after he picked up a booking in the 3-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion. The meeting with the Toffees is also going to come too soon for the likes of Ricardo Pereira, Timothy Castagne and Caglar Soyuncu. Embed from Getty Images
18:28a month ago

One to watch?

Everton forward Richarlison might be eyeing this fixture as one to score his first league goal since late September. The Brazilian has scored in three of his last four matches against Leicester, including on his last two visits to the King Power Stadium.
18:28a month ago

Last time out

The last time these two sides came together, the Toffees enjoyed a lightning start to the game as they ran out 2-1 winners at Goodison Park. Richarlison claimed the lead with a great header before Gylfi Sigurdsson doubled their advantage from the penalty spot. Kelechi Iheanacho climbed off the bench to find a foothold for the Foxes but they were unable to find an equaliser.

Great starts

We’ve certainly got two of the season’s surprise packages squaring off this evening. Brendan Rodgers’ men currently occupy third in the Premier League table after a great start. Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti’s  troops have not been quite as convincing following their fantastic beginning to the season but come into this game off the back of a 1-0 win over Chelsea.
