Meetings between the Foxes and the Toffees usually see plenty of strikes and this Premier League clash at the King Power should be no different

Leicester City are aiming to win three Premier League games in a row for the first time in nearly a year when they welcome Everton to the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Foxes have won four of their six games this term and will be confident of chalking up another against a Toffees side that has claimed just five points in their last five fixtures.

888Sport understandably make the hosts 5/4 (2.25) favourites, with both the draw and an Everton win priced at 47/20 (3.35).

Whilst the momentum seems to be with Leicester, who have only lost to this opposition once in their last nine home league meetings, the Toffees saw off Fulham 3-0 last weekend to arrest a four game winless run.

With any result seemingly possible, turning to the goals markets seems to make sense and over 2.5 goals can be backed at 10/11 (1.91) with 888Sport.

The 23 goals seen in Leicester’s seven league games this season is the second-most and Everton’s matches have produced 22 goals, with the pair managing just three clean sheets combined.

As well, over 2.5 goals would have paid out in five of each team’s seven fixtures this term - an amount bettered by only Tottenham – and in seven of the last nine matches between these sides.

Backing more than three goals to go in pays out at 47/20 (3.35) and would have landed in five of the last nine meetings, and that may prove a popular bet amongst punters.

However, the 10/11 (1.91) shot on over 2.5 strikes looks a solid price ahead of this Saturday afternoon clash at the King Power Stadium.

Over 2.5 goals at 10/11 (1.91) for a 2pt stake with 888Sport
