Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 2-1 win over Swansea City Leicester City put an end to their six-game winless run in the Premier League, but they remained in the danger zone in the standings. The win over Paul Clement’s troops undisputedly helped the Foxes regain a much-needed confidence and they are seen as favourites to win Sunday’s football match against Everton. Leicester City are on a three-game winless run at their King Power Stadium, but it has to be noted that they faced a tough fixture list. Jamie Vardy failed to score in the 2-1 win over Swansea City, but the opposition defenders should have the experienced attacker at bay. Everton coach Ronald Koeman is likely to be sacked following a heavy 5-2 loss to Arsenal and seeing that the Toffees are running down a blind alley ahead of the trip to Leicester, we are tempted to put our money on Craig Shakespeare’s troops.
Highligted Player (Andy King):
Born in Barnstaple, England on 29 October 1988, Andy King is a Welsh professional footballer famous for only representing one club in his career. The midfielder had began his youth career at Chelsea, but moved to Leicester in 2004 and he was handed his first professional contract in May 2007. He has since represented Foxes in League One, Championship and the Premier League, making over 300 league appearances and scoring more than 55 goals in the process. While he was not exactly a first team regular during the 2015/2016 season that will forever remained etched in the memory of Leicester City fans, King made over 20 league outings to help the Foxes lift the coveted trophy for the first time in history. Meanwhile, he has made more than 30 appearances for the Welsh national team, starting no fewer than five games as the Dragons secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four camaigns. The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987. The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955. In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
