Leicester vs Everton

Ronald Koeman has been shown the exit door, no doubt a terrible time for Everton, who spent quite a fortune over the summer. Still, Wayne Rooney can aim to score in three successive matches for the first time since January 2016.

Should Rooney help Everton to a win, it will mark the first time the Merseysiders have won three straight EPL matches against Leicester.

They will have to do it without long-term absentees Ross Barkley, Seamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie though.

Idrissa Gueye, who was red-carded in Everton's 5-2 capitulation to Arsenal last weekend, is back after serving his suspension. Morgan Schneirderlin has also recovered from his illness.

Leicester are without long-term absentee Robert Huth.


Match Stats:

  • Leicester 2-0 Everton
  • Shots: 9-15
  • Possession: 40%-60%
  • Corner kicks: 3-10

Goals from Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray gave Leicester City a 2-0 win over Everton in Claude Puel's first match as manager.

Puel brought Gray back into the starting XI and the winger created the opening goal when he sprinted 60 yards and set up Riyad Mahrez to cross for Jamie Vardy.

Gray then scored the second on 29 minutes as his cross-cum-shot was sliced into his own net by Jonjoe Kenny.

Everton nearly pulled one back but Dominic Calvert-Lewin could not connect with Aaron Lennon's pass when through on goal.

Toffees caretaker manager David Unsworth made two changes at half-time, giving Beni Baningime a Premier League debut, but they could not fight back.
