Premier League Match #26

Everton - Last Five Matches

Everton 0-0 West Brom
Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton (Lukaku)
Everton 0-0 Liverpool
Chelsea 1-0 Everton
Young Boys 1-4 Everton - Europa League (Lukaku x3, Coleman)

Leicester - Last Five Matches

Tottenham 1-2 Leicester - FA Cup (Ulloa, Schlupp)
Manchester United 3-1 Leicester (Wasilewski)
Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace
Arsenal 2-1 Leicester (Kramaric)
Aston Villa 2-1 Leicester - FA Cup (Kramaric)

Chelsea ended Everton's run of four matches without defeat in the premier league as Willian fired in the only goal late on in the match at Stamford Bridge in their last Premier League match. Everton have just one win in their last nine Premier League matches and failed to win in any of their last four matches at Goodison Park (D3, L1) and have drawn each of their last two home matches 0-0. Romelu Lukaku hasn't scored in any of his last five Premier League matches at Goodison Park, his last goal at home coming in a 1-1 draw with Hull city on the 3rd December 2014. A win would take Everton within 2 points of 11th place Newcastle United should the latter lose away to Manchester City.

Possible Line ups

Leicester succumbed to their fourth defeat in a row in the Premier League with a valiant 2-1 defeat away to Arsenal before suffering an FA Cup exit to Aston Villa at the weekend with the same scoreline. Leicester have lost ten of their 13 away matches in the premier league this season (W2, D1) with wins over Stoke City and Hull City as well as a 2-2 draw at Anfield. Leicester have a kept a league low of four clean sheets this season and only QPR & Burnley (43) have conceded more goals than the 40 goals scored by the team currenly bottom of the league. Leonardo Ulloa scored five goals in his first five Premier League starts this season but he has only managed four goals in his last 13 Premier League starts for Leicester in the Premier League.

Statistics & Injuries

Well Counted Shogs

I am surprised that we have a pretty equal record against Leicester. Thought we'd have heaps more wins against them. Mostly draw against them in the Prem. Need to improve on that.

Gotta win this, this would just sum up the season to drop points to them after the brilliance in switzerland.

Evertonian in NC:
I have set my alarm so I don't miss a minute of this near-certain scoreless draw.

I'm hoping Goodson will be relatively positive tomorrow, a bit of the pressure on Barkley and to a lesser extent Lukaku has eased. I think the fans will be feeling a bit better about things after Thursday and hopefully we get an earlyish goal and that translates into a decent atmosphere, and a good assured win.

Then we can rotate in Europe midweek, and have a free run at Arsenal next weekend, with little or no pressure on us, and given that they like to come out and play, and that we've been good there for the last couple of seasons, we might cause them plenty of problems with the renewed confidence.

Also we owe Leicester one, after they fucked us up at the start of the season and set us off on a bad foot.
