Everton v Leicester: Maddison a doubt for Foxes

Everton, who are 12th, could move into the top half as they aim to build on their 1-0 win at Norwich City.

Third-placed Leicester City are now just a point above Chelsea after successive draws against Watford and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Team news

Leicester's James Maddison is a doubt due to a knock which ruled him out of Sunday's FA Cup defeat to Chelsea. Ricardo Pereira (knee) is a long-term absentee.

Everton defender Yerry Mina is available for the first time since the Toffees' return to action, while Djibril Sidibe (foot) and Theo Walcott (abdominal surgery) are due to start training in the next week.

It remains unclear when Fabian Delph will be able to return from a muscle injury.

Did you know?

Everton are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League home matches (W4 D4). Only Liverpool with 56, are on a longer current run without a home defeat in the competition.

The Toffees are the only team yet to win a penalty in the Premier League this season. They have gone 38 matches since they last won one against Chelsea in March 2019.

Jamie Vardy has been involved in eight goals in his nine Premier League matches for Leicester against Everton, scoring six and creating two.

Leicester have failed to score in four of their last six Premier League matches. They had only failed to net in three of their first 25 this season.
