Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
That's Everton's first away win in the league since August and it's moved them up to 16th, with Burnley and Leeds United both losing this weekend. Next up for them is another big game against the recently relegated Watford. Leicester's winless run is now at seven games in all competitions as they stay 14th. They host Norwich City next time out.
Everton are out of the relegation zone after a 2-1 win over Leicester City. The visitors broke the deadlock just six minutes in when Mykolenko volleyed an effort past Schmeichel. Leicester responded quickly though and Daka took advantage of a mix-up between Mina and Coleman to slot past Pickford. Holgate restored the lead, following in after Richarlison had a header saved to nod it past the keeper. Leicester just couldn't find a way through in the second half, with Pickford making a couple of great saves to keep out Barnes, who also headed just wide late on.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: LEICESTER CITY 1-2 EVERTON.
W. Fofana
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Rondon shields the ball from Fofana, but then has his heels clipped by the defender when he tries to break forward. Fofana is shown a yellow card.
90' + 2' Rondon is dispossessed at the corner flag, but Tielemans' hopeful long ball is cut out by Keane. Leicester come again, with Dewsbury-Hall looping it forward. Castagne flicks a header towards goal, but it's a comfortable take for Pickford.
90' Leicester are running out of time to get something out of this game, and they can't get out of their own half at the moment. Richarlison takes it to the corner flag, but ends up losing out to Evans.
D. Amartey
Yellow Card
88' Richarlison takes a lazy, heavy touch before realising that Amartey's closing him down. He bursts forward, causing the defender to crash into him, and Amartey is booked.
86' Leicester patiently work it out from the back and Castagne does well to stop Tielemans' throughball from going out by sliding in to loop a cross into the box. Holgate gets under it though and Everton clear their lines.
84' Everton are being urged on by the away fans as they break on the counter again. It's switched out to Iwobi, who holds the ball up well but then overhits the throughball to Gordon straight out of play.
82' CLOSE! Castagne's first cross was a good one, but Vardy's flick-on was off target. Leicester recycle it though, working it back out to the Belgian, and he picks out Barnes this time. He glances his header on, but it's just wide of the far post.
A. Lookman
P. Daka
80' Final roll of the dice from Rodgers in an attempt to find a late equaliser. Their goal scorer, Daka, is taken off and replaced by Lookman.
78' Leicester are trying to get themselves back on the front foot, but Everton are dropping deep again. Tielemans decides to have a go from range, but it's straight down the middle at Pickford.
76' Gordon is hacked down by Evans and wins a free-kick near the byline on the right. Gordon's cross is cleared by the defender at the near post as far as Doucoure, whose wild shot curls out for a throw-in on the far side.
S. Rondón
D. Gray
74' Final change for Everton here, and Gray is taking his time leaving the field. Rondon is coming on in his place.
73' Another counter-attack for Everton sees Gordon released down the right and this time, he squares it into Richarlison. The ball bounces up against Castagne, with some half-hearted shouts for handball from the fans, before the Brazilian hits his follow-up shot against the defender.
71' GREAT SAVE! Barnes cuts inside from the left before firing a low shot towards the far bottom corner from the edge of the box. Pickford gets down to push it away and he's furious with his defenders for not closing Barnes down quicker.
70' Leicester win another corner and Vardy gets in front of everyone at the near post to flick it on. It's always heading wide and Daka tries to stretch at the far post to turn it towards goal, but it's just out of his reach.
68' GREAT SAVE! Iheanacho spins before chipping a good cross into the far post. Daka cushions a header down for Barnes, who scuffs a volley through Keane's legs and Pickford gets down quickly to tip it wide.
J. Kenny
V. Mykolenko
66' There's also a change for Everton here, with Kenny coming on in place of Mykolenko.
J. Vardy
N. Mendy
66' Second change for Leicester now, and it's Mendy that's making way for Vardy.
64' GOOD SAVE! Barnes touches it back to Mendy on the edge of the box and he takes it around Doucoure before firing a shot on goal. It's heading into the top corner until Pickford gets a strong hand behind it.
63' Leicester patiently play it out from the back again, but Everton are staying compact in their shape. The hosts win another corner, but the delivery lets Dewsbury-Hall down again as Keane clears.
61' Some of the Leicester fans are jeering as the players knock it around amongst the defenders again. They're not happy with what they've seen so far.
59' Leicester are back on the front foot and Evans is allowed to carry the ball a long way before he lays it off to Dewsbury-Hall on the left. He swings a very deep cross into the box, and it's over everyone again.
57' Gray cuts inside from the left and he has four Leicester players between him and the goal, but he decides to have a shot anyway. It's a poor effort though as he slices it high and wide.
55' Gordon is chasing Coleman's long ball down the right, but Leicester are flooding back with him. He pulls it back for Iwobi, who tees up Doucoure, but he runs straight into Holgate.
53' BLOCK! Tielemans gifts the ball to Gray and he bursts forward through the middle. Fofana slides in, but his interception is picked up by Richarlison. He squares it to Gordon, who has a lot of space down the right, but Evans recovers to slide in and block his shot.
51' Leicester haven't won a game when trailing at the break in the Premier League this season, drawing two and losing eight in the previous such matches.
49' Richarlison bursts past Barnes down the right and he's got acres of space to run into. Evans gets across and steps on his foot to give away a free-kick in a good position, but it comes to nothing.
N. Mendy
Yellow Card
47' Gordon tried to spin away from Mendy to break on the counter, so Mendy stuck out a leg to trip him. He's shown the first yellow card of the game.
46' Leicester get us back underway for the second half!
H. Barnes
Ayoze Pérez
46' Leicester are making a change at the break as they look to get back into this game. Perez, who struggled to make an impact in the first half, goes off. Barnes replaces him.
As things stand, Everton are up to 16th in the table, and Lampard will be pleased with his side's performance so far. Apart from that mistake leading to the goal, Everton have looked solid and caused Leicester some real problems on the break. Leicester went off to boos from some fans in the stadium, and Rodgers will be hoping for a better reaction in the second half.
Everton take a 2-1 lead over Leicester into half-time. It was a lightning-quick start to the game, with Mina blocking Daka's shot in the second minute before Mykolenko volleyed in a great finish to put Everton ahead at the other end. Just six minutes later, Daka made Everton pay for a mix-up between Mina and Coleman when he slotted in. Schmeichel made good saves to deny Doucoure and Richarlison, though the latter happened just seconds before Holgate nodded the Toffees back in front.
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: LEICESTER CITY 1-2 EVERTON.
45' + 1' Castagne does brilliantly to keep Tielemans' long ball in play at the byline and he drills a good cross into the near post. Nobody is there for the hosts though, and Keane hooks it away.
44' Dewsbury-Hall was brought down by Iwobi, and he looks to be in a lot of pain as the medical team is called on. It's a problem with his ankle, and he's moving gingerly as he makes his way off the pitch, but it looks like he'll be carrying on for now.
42' Doucoure wins it back in midfield again, and this time, he drives to the edge of the box before laying it off Gray. He gets it caught under his feet and can't get a shot away.
40' Doucoure steps in to take it off Iheanacho and he tries to get Richarlison in behind. He's the furthest forward for Everton but plays a hopeful ball out to the right for Iwobi to chase. He's asking too much of him though and Leicester have it back.
38' There's another nervy moment at the back for Everton as Holgate hits his clearance straight against Doucoure. The Frenchman dawdles on it before being dispossessed by Dewsbury-Hall, but his shot is just wide of the near post.
36' SAVE! Tielemans does really well to dribble his way out of the crowd, while holding off Coleman, to square it to Iheanacho on the left of the box. He hits a low shot at the near post from a tight angle, but Pickford holds it.
34' Another deep cross comes in from Dewsbury-Hall and Castagne nods it back into the middle of the box. Everton have a lot of bodies back though, and it's Keane that clears it.
32' Leicester are looking for another quick response, and it's Dewsbury-Hall pushing forward down the left. He slides it through to Daka, but he set off too early, and the offside flag ends the attack.
M. Holgate
Goal
30' HOLGATE SCORES! And Everton lead again! The corner is swung in by Gray and Richarlison rises high to thump a header towards goal. Schmeichel gets down to keep it out, but he parries it straight back into play. Holgate reacts quicker than Perez and nods it into the back of the net. 2-1 Everton!
28' Iwobi rides the challenge from Mendy to get to the edge of the box before squaring it behind Gray. He keeps hold of it on the stretch and tries to switch it out to Gordon, but it's one pass too many, and Evans cuts it out.
26' Mendy hooks a good ball forward and Daka manages to keep it in play before pulling it back for Dewsbury-Hall. He swings a first-time cross into the box, but it's too high for everyone in the middle.
24' Everton are still soaking up Leicester's pressure and trying to break on the counter when they win it back. Mykolenko stops Castagne's run and tries to set Gray on the attack, but he runs it straight out of play.
22' The game is stopped again and this time, it's Gordon that's got a problem. He collided with Evans as they both tried to get on the end of Iwobi's header, but he'll be able to carry on without treatment.
20' Dewsbury-Hall runs into traffic down the left, and Coleman feeds it into Iwobi so he can break on the counter. He flicks it onto Gordon, who almost looks to have the better of Mendy, but the midfielder gets there just ahead of him.
M. Keane
Y. Mina
18' Mina makes his way straight off the field and down the tunnel, and Keane comes on to replace him.
17' Mina has pulled up here, and the medical team are on to see to him. It's not clear what the problem is, but he's not going to be able to carry on.
15' Amartey is a long way out when he gets the ball, but nobody closes him down. He gets it out from his feet before going for goal and it sails just over the bar.
13' Leicester are pushing forward again, and Castagne goes for the big switch out to Perez on the opposite flank. He knocks it past Iwobi, but can't pick out a team-mate with his cross.
P. Daka
Goal
11' DAKA EQUALISES! What a start to the game! There's a horrible mix-up between Mina and Coleman as they both try to head the ball away, but they end up helping it onto Daka, who is one-on-one with Pickford. He keeps his cool to slide his shot past the keeper and into the back of the net. 1-1!
11' GREAT SAVE! It's so nearly 2-0 to Everton! Gray squares it to Doucoure, and he takes the shot first time. Schmeichel is standing in the right place, and it hits him before trickling towards the line. The keeper scrambles back to see it bounce off the post before he holds onto it.
10' Everton are happy to just drop deep into their shape and allow Leicester to keep possession in front of them. The hosts just can't find a way through at the moment.
8' Leicester are pushing to find a quick equaliser and Dewsbury-Hall gets away from Iwobi to fizz a dangerous cross into the six-yard box. Iheanacho slides in, but he can't reach it on the stretch, and Pickford collects.
A. Iwobi
Assist
6' It initially looked like he'd got the cross wrong, but Mykolenko made a late, unmarked run to get on the end of it.
V. Mykolenko
Goal
6' MYKOLENKO SCORES! It's a great goal! Iwobi plays a one-two with Gordon from a throw-in before lobbing a cross to the edge of the box for Mykolenko. He swings a leg at it, sending his volley through the crowd and out of Schmeichel's reach into the corner. 1-0 Everton!
4' SAVE! Leicester have made a bright start to this game and Evans goes long over the top to pick out Iheanacho. He takes it past Coleman before hitting a low shot towards the near post from a tight angle. Pickford smothers it, but the flag was up anyway.
2' GREAT BLOCK! A loose pass from Iwobi to Delph is pounced on by Iheanacho, and he threads it through for Daka on the edge of the box. Pickford rushes off his line, but the shot rolls under him and Mina slides it to stop it from reaching the goal.
1' Gordon gets the game underway for Everton!
The teams are out on the pitch, with kick-off just moments away!
Leicester have alternated between victory (three) and defeat (three) in their last six Premier League home games against Everton - their five previous home games against them had all finished level.
Frank Lampard has named an unchanged line-up to the one that got that big win over Chelsea last Sunday. Calvert-Lewin is on the bench again, after being an unused substitute in that game, and Gomes is also back among the subs after recovering from a groin injury.
Rodgers makes six changes to the side that started against Roma in the Europa Conference League on Thursday, with Amartey, Castagne, Mendy, Perez, Daka and Iheanacho all coming into the side. Barnes, Vardy and Lookman drop to the bench, while James Maddison, James Justin and Ricardo Pereira aren't involved in the squad.
EVERTON SUBS: Andre Gomes, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jonjoe Kenny, Michael Keane, Salomon Rondon, Asmir Begovic, Reece Welch, Dele Alli, Allan.
EVERTON STARTING XI (5-4-1): Jordan Pickford; Alex Iwobi, Seamus Coleman, Yerry Mina, Mason Holgate, Vitalii Mykolenko; Anthony Gordon, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Fabian Delph, Demarai Gray; Richarlison.
LEICESTER CITY SUBS: Marc Albrighton, Danny Ward, Harvey Barnes, Ademola Lookman, Caglar Soyuncu, Luke Thomas, Jamie Vardy, Boubakary Soumare, Hamza Choudhury.
LEICESTER CITY STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Kasper Schmeichel; Daniel Amartey, Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans, Timothy Castagne; Nampalys Mendy, Youri Tielemans; Ayoze Perez, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Patson Daka; Kelechi Iheanacho.
Everton have the chance to move out of the relegation zone with a win after Burnley's loss yesterday. Their fight to stay in the Premier League received a huge boost last week as they held on to beat Chelsea 1-0, leaving them two points from safety. They've lost just one of their last four games (W2 D1), but they've picked up just six points away from Goodison Park this season, and have lost their last seven such games in a row. Leicester's hopes of playing in Europe next season came crashing down after losing 1-0 in their semi-final second leg to Roma on Thursday. Brendan Rodgers will be hoping they can still finish the season strongly and turn around their poor form, having failed to win any of their last six in all competitions (D3 L3).
