Leicester Seeks Rare Premier League Away Win at EvertonPublished April 9, 2017 by Florin P
Lukaku plays in one of the last important home game for Everton against the surging Leicester (4:00 p.m UK Time).
The ship for the Champions League has sailed, but this doesn’t mean that Everton gave up. The players are still counting on overtaking Manchester United and playing in Europa League next season. To get there, they need more victories on the road while maintaining the same high tempo in home matches. After the disheartening defeat to Liverpool, they hope to rebound and defeat Leicester at Goodison Park.
A Parting Gift for Lukaku
What many football fans and pundits were expecting for many months now is official. Lukaku will not play for Everton next season and he’s expected to move on to a better club. The quality of the striker is truly remarkable and he has served his team well for many seasons. Now that he will be moving on to greener pastures, he can still do his teammates one last service.
In the remaining games, Lukaku is guaranteed to spearhead the offensive and he can score plenty of goals. The first opportunity will present itself in the match against Leicester at Goodison Park. Everton has an impressive track record in home games and has won 10 matches while losing a single one.
Leicester Surges in the Standings
Ranieri brought the Foxes the Premier League trophy last season, in the biggest upset in major football leagues. However, this season Leicester performed poorly and eventually the Italian manager got sacked. His replacement managed to turn the ship around quite fast and now the team is riding a five-game winning streak. The real test comes today when they travel to Everton for a very tough match.
Leicester is indeed flying high, but they are going to be given a reality check in Liverpool. Everton will throw everything it’s got and given the team’s strong home record, it’s likely that they will snap the visitors winning streak. The odds for that to happen are 4/5 at bet365 Sports.
