EVE Vs LEI Dream 11 Prediction: Without a win since the league’s return, Leicester City fast losing their grip on the top 4.
Where everything went right Leicester City’s way in the first half of the season, the second part of the Premier League has been equally abysmal and horrid. The team has fallen apart, losing its entire aura to lose all the cushion it had tailored for itself with its electric performances back in 2019.
And the turn of Coronavirus has been even more appalling for the side with the team’s callous slump in form further taking a diving. Winless in both their encounters since the league has restarted, the side went onto be defeated by Chelsea as well in the FA Cup quarter-final with the team’s attacking unit failing to unlock its true potential.
On the other hand, Everton have taken to the league’s return like a fish takes to water. After giving a solid account of themselves in their 0-0 shut down against Liverpool, the side went onto register a 1-0 win against Norwich City in their previous contest, a result which sees them sit on the cusp of entering into the top 10.
Although Everton went onto register a win the last time around, the showing was hardly a convincing one. The side was made to sweat it out against the bottom placed side, a performance which hardly imbues the team with confidence for this affair.
With both the side waning in attack, this will be a skirmish today, a fixture we see the home side just about swinging their way owing to their repertoire in the attacking ambit.

Norwich City Vs Everton: 0-1
Leicester City Vs Brighton: 0-0
At the end of their last encounter against Brighton, Leicester City were left thanking Kasper Schmeichel for the one point they were able to accumulate from the day. The side’s goal-keeper saved Maupay’s penalty, one which ensured that Leicester City were able to walk away with a 0-0 draw.
He’s been in torrid form ever since the league has restarted but Ben Chilwell will still be our pick from Leicester City for the encounter. The fullback has been shambolically exposed in the defence ambit in the last three clashes but the player still manages to hold onto a spot in our framework after scoring for the side against Watford in their 1-1 draw.
Elsewhere, with two cleansheets on the bounce since the league has returned and Leicester City’s regressing form, it was prudent of us to opt for a partnership from the home side. We begin with Seamus Coleman, a player who has stamped his authority since returning from injury to show just how pivotal a name he is for the club.
CB Michael Keane is paired him alongside him to wrap up our backline for the imminent encounter.
Akin to Coleman, Andre Gomes has taken no time ins settling into his groove since making a return from injury. The player has emerged as a tough nut to crack, a player whose enterprising skill set has seen him take control of the side’s midfield docket.
Leicester City on the other hand will find representation in a trivalent of selections. We begin with the pick of CDM Wilfred Ndidi, a player who has helped provide his backline with unstinted, safeguarding and galvanising the side at a time of peril.
With 6 goals, James Maddison who is on corners and freekicks joins him up for the imminent tie with Dennis Praet wrapping up our ambit for the encounter.
Leicester City’s top scorer in the league with the 19 goals in the competition, Jamie Vardy was always going to be a must have pick for us. Everton on the other hand will see us rope in their leading scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin, a player who with the 13 goals has emerged as the mainstay of his side’s facet under Ancelotti.
He finds company in Richarlison who has the 10 goals in his kitty to complete our one-two of picks from the land of the home side’s team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 13 goals made it rightful to move ahead with Dominic as our side’s captain while Vardy is the vice-captain.
