Leicester City travel to Goodison Park for their English Premier League outing with Everton on Wednesday night.

Claude Puel’s men will be heading into this tie with confidence following their 5-1 thrashing of Peterborough United in the FA Cup fourth round at the weekend.

The Foxes will be looking to extend their six-match unbeaten run across all competitions in the duel as they are slight favourites here at the offer of (2.62) with Bet9ja.

The last time they played a stalemate with their hosts was 2015 and a chance for a repeat of this is available at the odds of (3.10) with the same betting firm.

Everton are winless in their last seven games. Besides, their performance on their own turf has not also been encouraging having failed to secure victory in their last three duels.

After four straight defeats, they managed to hold West Bromwich Albion in their last league game. They will have it all to do to return to winning ways having been tagged as slight underdogs at the price of (2.88).

The odds also favour Leicester to avoid defeat in the engagement with the bookies offering (1.38), knowing that they are unbeaten in their last three games outside the King Power Stadium.

Many goals will not be expected in this encounter bearing in mind that Sam Allardyce’s charges have only scored three goals in their last seven matches while Leicester have managed to notch seven goals in their previous five top-flight duels. Therefore, the betting firm is putting up (1.18) for under 3.5 goals.

Four of their previous meetings ended with both sides sharing equal stats which signify that this clash will be a cracker. Thus, punters can back the Foxes to win by a one goal margin a chunky offer of (4.30) with Bet9ja.
