Leicester vs Everton 29/10/2017
Claude Puel will make his managerial bow as Leicester welcome David Unsworth’s Everton to the King Power Stadium. It’s not a good time for both teams as they are the latest sides to sack their managers in the EPL.
Everton, who sacked Ronald Koeman at the start of the week, are aiming to win their third straight EPL matchup against Leicester for the first time. They have no fresh injury concerns, but long-term absentees Yannick Bolasie, Ross Barkley and Seamus Coleman remain on the sidelines.
Idrissa Gueye, meanwhile, will serve a one-match ban for his reckless red card against Arsenal, which played a huge part in his team’s 5-2 thrashing by Arsenal.
Leicester defensive stalwart Robert Huth is also facing a tough race to be fit, while midfielder Matty James struggles with a calf problem.
Jamie Vardy and Wayne Rooney will lead their teams in attack, and they will be certainly crucial to where the points are headed. Vardy has two goals and two assists in four previous EPL appearances against the Toffees, while Rooney has scored in each of Everton’s last two EPL matches.
