LEI vs EVE Dream11: Everton travel to Leicester with confidence restored to their side after a dogged 1-0 triumph at home to Chelsea at the weekend despite the absence of talisman James Rodriguez. The Foxes meanwhile, enjoyed a much more comfortable victory, brushing aside Brighton 3-0. Sitting third in the Premier League heading into this round of fixtures, Leicester will be delighted with how their season has panned out so far. This however, could prove a very evenly contested affair between two strong sides, both with high aspirations for the campaign. Leicester are one of only two teams in the Premier League to have not registered a single draw so far this season. However, considering the credentials of Carlo Ancelotti’s visiting side that may be set to change, with both teams perhaps seeing a point as a positive result considering not just the strength of the opposition.
