THE PREDICTION

Leicester are running the risk of letting slip on third place as their poor form since the resumption in play has seen the likes of Chelsea, Man Utd and Wolves all close the gap on them. Their below-par form also saw them knocked out of the FA Cup at the weekend so their complete focus is on the league now and sealing a Champions League place. They make the trip to Goodison for another tough encounter against Carlo Ancelotti’s men who are coming off a solid win over Norwich. They are not quite flowing themselves but they have had a longer break to prepare for this game and that may work in their favour. Brendan Rodgers could well make numerous rotations here to keep his side fresh but they will come up against a strong Everton line-up. There could easily be a stalemate however with neither team looking particularly convincing going forward so under 2.5 goals is the play here.
