Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Everton and Leicester City square off against each other in a highly-anticipated Premier League game at Goodison Park. The Toffees have yet to find their best form, but they did well to hold Fulham to a goalless draw at Craven Cottage on Matchday 14. Frank Lampard’s troops are eyeing their fourth win of the process, and, one thing is for sure, they are going to leave their hearts on the field. All Mina, Godfrey, and Townsend are out of contention with injuries.
The Foxes, on the other hand, aim to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s showdown. Since both sides will go for a win, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. Zambia striker Patson Daka should replace Jamie Vardy in the starting XI, with fit-again midfielder Wilfred Ndidi pushing for a start as well. Both Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand remain in the treatment room.
Highlighted Player (Abdoulaye Doucouré):
French international midfielder Abdoulaye Doucour is a bundle of raw energy and a player who was voted Watford’s Player of the Season during the 2017/18 campaign. A deep-lying midfielder who takes part in play build-up from behind is a defensive asset who took time to blossom and announce himself at the international stage. He first burst to prominence at Ligue 1 side Rennes in 2012 after a year with the club’s B side and went on to play 75 league matches and score 12 goals.
Watford bought Doucoure in 2016 but sent him on loan to Granada, where he took part in 15 league matches. Determined to prove his worth in the Premier League, the Frenchman of Mali descent wasted no time in grabbing a starting spot under both Marco Silva and Javi Garcia, respectively, upon his return from Spain.
The total of 38 matches played along with 8 goals scored made Doucoure one of the most sought-after assets in the summer of 2018 but the player remained at Vicarage Road despite reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
