Everton

Everton drew their third successive Premier League match after failing to put Norwich to the sword at Carrow Road last weekend. Everton are unbeaten in their last six league matches but they've only taken 10 points (W2, D4) and their two victories came at Goodison Park against the sides who currently occupy the bottom two places of the Premier League (Sunderland & Aston Villa). Everton are unbeaten in their last 11 meetings with Leicester but nine of those matches have finished in a draw including both fixtures last season which finished 2-2. In fact, 72% of all Premier League fixtures between Everton and Leicester have ended in a draw, the highest percentage of any fixture to have been played at least five times in the league. Only Manchester City (25) have scored more goals at home in the league than Everton (17) this season but only Leicester (13), Bournemouth (13) and West Brom (14) have conceded more than The Toffees (12).

This weekend's fixture sees the top two (three including Mahrez) goalscorers in the league go head to head with Vardy topping the charts with 15 goals and Lukaku not far behind on 12. Lukaku is currently on a run of 6 consecutive Premier League matches with a goal but he'll need to score in another 5 league matches before leveling the record set by Vardy already this season. The Belgian has scored 37 Premier League goals since his debut for Everton, a tally only exceeded by Sergio Aguero (46) during that time. Whilst only Borussia Dortmund's Aubameyang (18) has scored more goals than Vardy in the top five European leagues this season and the Leicester forward has been involved in 17 goals overall in the league this season which is the second most in the league, with Lukaku's 16 goals coming third on that list. Alongside one of his teammates and Lukaku, Vardy has scored a joint league high of seven goals away from home this season whilst just five of Lukaku's 12 goals have come at Goodison Park.

Possible Line-Ups

Leicester

Leicester joined Arsenal and Manchester City in winning 10 of their 16 Premier League matches on Monday night when they dispatched the reigning champions Chelsea 2-1 to take their place at the top of the table. The Foxes have only kept three clean sheets in the league this season but they're the only side to have scored in every single match too, with Manchester City and Arsenal failing to score on three occasions this season. Leicester are also the only side unbeaten away from home this season as they've taken 18 points from their eight fixtures on the road (W5 D3) and they've managed a joint league high of 18 goals away from home, which is two more than they've taken from home matches and they've conceded three goals fewer as well. A win for Leicester would see them go top of the Premier League on Christmas day and five of the last six teams in that position have gone on to win the league (Liverpool 2013/14, fortunately the exception).

(http://i.imgur.com/qgg2KWA.png)

Albeit some six goals behind Arsenal's Mesut Ozil, Gerard Deulofeu and Riyad Mahrez have the joint second most assists in the Premier League this season, providing seven goals each. Deulofeu has played significantly fewer minutes than the Algerian international but still posts some decent stats compared to the Premier League's standout player so far this season. Mahrez leads the goals tally significantly with 11 goals to his name and he has been involved in 18 goals overall this season which is the highest in the league compared to Deulofeu's tally of eight. Both of these players are involved in the top scoring duos this season with Deulofeu providing six goals for Lukaku whilst Mahrez has actually scored six goals of his own with all of them being assisted by Marc Albrighton. Just one of Mahrez's 11 goals have been the opening goal in a league match.

Could be one of the games of the season.

As much as I don't think we'll win this because of the way we've been lately. If it's a case of attack versus attack then we've got a very good chance and Arsenal did batter them 5-2 in Leicester.

Genuinely done think there's any way we'll keep a clean sheet.

While vardy has been impressive, it's not THAT rare for a striker to go beast mode aka. Do a Michael ricketts, but very very rarely does someone play with confidence and ability of mahrez without being a top, top player. Really like him and think Madrid  willprobably will come in for him.

All of their goals have been scored inside the box this season, every single one of them. should be simple enough to just stop the cross, right?

5-3 Leicester.

Even after this mammoth run of form, it's still criminal how much space and lack of respect teams are showing Vardy and Mahrez. Double up if need be. Don't expose the centre backs. Don't give them any time and space. I'd be tempted to leave Coleman in our own half all game to cover Vardy's runs off the left. Seamus is rapid and could eliminate the threat.

Also see Drinkwater and Huth will miss this game. Be interesting to see how they handle a reshuffle; they've pretty much had the same team out every game, they just rotate Vardy's partner a bit.

I can see them scoring so we'll need to be clinical. 2-1 COYB!!!

Think will win. Time for Leicester to come back down to earth, and after our recent disappointing results, I feel changing fortunes are in the winds.

Barkley needs to step up this week. After his strong start to the season, he has certainly faded a bit. Still providing a goal threat, but what was so positive about his earlier performances was that he was imposing himself on the game, and trying to be a creative outlet. Perhaps one downside to Deulofeo's excellence is that our game plan has largely been structured around getting him the ball in dangers positions, and I think Barkley has used that fact as an excuse to step back a little bit.

Looks like it should be a score draw this one

Seems likely that Deulofeu will set up Lukaku for the opener and then Mahrez will set up Vardy for the equaliser

I agree, every week people say they will be coming back down to Earth, and every week they win and perform very well. They are a good team, made very good by the confidence and team spirit, plus two forwards on fire. Reminds me of the shite when they almost won the league.

I know you can't predict what will happen week to week in the Prem this season, but we've got a mental January coming up. Really need to be picking up some wins from this, Newcastle and Stoke if we possibly can. 7 points would be nice minimum from those games.

This should be an open game, and I'm confident that we've got enough to outscore them. Hopefully McCarthy is back, and then we can move Cleverley out to the left, rest Kone, and maybe give ourselves better cover and balance for Baines.

I think there's no doubt these are serious title contenders. (yeah I know little Leicester city, 'title contenders'.) This is what winds me up about people, who start moaning their teams don't have enough money to buy the title. Leicester City didn't/haven't? Things have clicked and Ranieri has seen the workings of an under performing team and tinkered. After all, he is known as the tinker man.

We're going to have to be at our very best to beat these. We can't have any jaded performances from any of the players and to be honest, I feel like we're playing the future champions, unless, injuries to a few of their important players nip that strange idea in the bud.

Something special from our team is likely to be required as I think we're going to need it.

Well until they've either won the title or come very, very close I think it's a bit early to start claiming you don't need loads of money to win the league!

They've done brilliantly so far. I was impressed vs Chelsea for an hour but then they were lucky Chelsea are in dire straits otherwise against an in form team I think the game would have ended up a draw. They might have started to look a little tired.

We'll have to be up for the game and very concentrated as even if they are starting to feel the effects of few changes to their main players, their confidence levels are such that they will expect to be able to score/win. They're unlikely to just give the game away.

It'll be up to us to expose any underlying tiredness or actual quality levels.

I'm remembering Brian Clough and the way he pulled a pile of average players together and won the European Cup (twice). I think apart from Trevor Francis they were all bargain buys. I'd have to google to confirm that, but, going from memory, I've seen this all before. Obviously Shogun and Jimmy have got me in a mystic meg mood. :eh:

While you can't call it a "must win" given the time of the season, given our recent results if we have any sort of aspiration to challenge for the top 4 we need momentum soon and I think we need the confidence that beating a team who are flying high can bring with it.

So for me, we really need to get over the line for once and win this game (and frankly probably the next few coming up this month in order to really set up a challenge). However both of those things are a fairly tall order as things stand.

Huth is out, I think, so that's one down. Like FM, we always seem to concede to some no-mark who hasn't scored for 2 years and never will again - in particular, I'm thinking Danny Graham for Sunderland in May and Kleberson for United way back when.

Yeah I think I'd agree.

We need something to push us on.

We've got players in good form so it's not like we're just waiting for Lukaku to hit his stride for example.

0 wins vs teams in the top half isn't good enough so one against top of the table could give us that little bit extra belief/confidence needed.

We'd still be vulnerable as we end up with 6 players in a straight line on the edge of their box and 4 static players on the half way line just waiting for someone to give a really slow square ball that sets up the opposition.

The 'rinsing Kone till his leg falls off' experiment has had it's day. He's a good member of the squad but not necessarily a vital member of the team. He's looked knackered the past few games so if there was ever a position that needs freshening up it's this one. If Martinez really wants to play him every week then give him a good 70 mins, not watch him visibly wilt for the last 20 minutes every week.

I'll probably jinx it now and they'll both score a hat-trick, but I think we'll keep Vardy and Mahrez quiet. It'll be someone like Marc Albrighton or Okazaki and for some reason, it'll feel 10 times more disappointing!

Hopefully we'll turn up and just be at them from the off, although I quite like the idea of hitting them on the counter - tighten things up at the back, which would make things difficult for them and use the pace of Rom, Deulofeu and Ross on the break.

Post by: GrantyBoy78 on December 18, 2015, 05:29:33 PM
I'll probably jinx it now and they'll both score a hat-trick, but I think we'll keep Vardy and Mahrez quiet. It'll be someone like Marc Albrighton or Okazaki and for some reason, it'll feel 10 times more disappointing!

Hopefully we'll turn up and just be at them from the off, although I quite like the idea of hitting them on the counter - tighten things up at the back, which would make things difficult for them and use the pace of Rom, Deulofeu and Ross on the break.

Whilst we're on the subject of crap scorers - Esteban Fuertes anyone?

But Leicester play on the break, too. Some of their play really isn't very sophisticated. They punt the ball long to Vardy/Mahrez and rely on individual brilliance to score. Defensively they have that Kante lad who does a 'McCarthy' and covers every blade of grass. Huth as a no-nonsense 'stopper' at the back. Fair play to them for doing well this season but a few suspensions/injuries/lack of form and they'll drift away.

Oh, and Esteban Fuertes. Haha only goal before being deported, right? Hahahahahahah.

This list makes for grim reading.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Premier_League_hat-tricks

Andy Sinton, Efan Ekoku[4!], Chris Armstrong and Bradley fucking Allen.  All of them scored their only top flight hat-tricks against us.



Back in the Ekoku era, my Nan(who isn't a massive football fan) used to always hear me and my uncle talking about footy

One day she says to us "does this Ekoku play for Man United?"

"Then why do you hate him so much?!"

"We don't!"

"Your always calling him that effing Ekoku!"

I think Huth missing is a big chance for us. They're already quite leaky at their best, with their best defence playing, so I'm sure there'll be vulnerabilities for us to exploit. We really need to find that clinical, professional edge in this game when we create chances. Leicester will keep going at us when they have a chance to for the entire 90 minutes, so I think we'll need to be get more than 1 goal ahead.

Kante has been fantastic for them. Seems to have unlimited energy. We have to be wary of their pressing.


Would hate to see Stones caught out by Vardy but I do fear it will happen

Leicester do concede a fair few goals, they are quite vulnerable from corners. I'm sure we've been working on them all week though so we should score from 3 or 4 set plays against them

Huth is a big miss for them at the back! Though they have had some great results from coming from behind so if we are 2 up at half time I wouldn't count on us to hold out considering our second half performances of late! Desperately need these 3 points and give the fans some Christmas cheer

I'm curious to see how Martinez deals with Mahrez. If he sticks with Kone on the left, Mahrez should have free rein to run at Baines which, on current form, would be a nightmare.

This is going to be an interesting match, however we approach it.

Agree to a certain extent, but with the amount of teams they've put away this year, mid-table/below is going to be very crowded this year.

And were we much more than average journeymen when we came 4th? Sum of the parts and all that. We definitely have more quality than them, but we're not harnessing it in the right way. They have some really good players and are utilising the others to their maximum potential, which is exactly what we did in 04/05.

That attitude has no doubt been a fuel to Leicester this season, as teams seem to continually underestimate them and assume that they will be the ones to put them in their places. Hopefully our players are thinking completely differently.

But that's exactly the attitude we need to have against these. We show them too much respect and the play gets slow and cautious, we've seen it before. The crowd then get on their back and Goodison gets toxic.
We need to go out with the swagger we started with against Norwich and hopefully put the chances to bed early on like we can do.

Well when it's been going that long, you start to question whether it's down to form or just the fact they're collectively a good side.

I'm not saying we're not capable of beating them, and I do think whether it's today or a year from now teams will start to counteract them a lot better and their form will start to suffer...in a similar way to Martinez's second season vs first season. However, until we start putting away teams in much poorer form I won't be overly confident of us beating any team on a roll.

All that said, we need to find a way to win. I hope Martinez has a good plan today and we can execute.

Haha. Have you seen us defend? There may as well be a red carpet leading into the box.

On second thought, that's harsh. We allow a lot of chances but they tend to be ones that, statistically, are low quality -- headers and shots from distance. We're just piss poor at defending against headers.

Kone is the epitome of frustration.

He almost seems reluctant to do anything but hold it up and try and give it to someone else. He needs to be more selfish. Still an infinitely better option than Mirallas though

Game's there for the taking, again.

Leicester had a 51% pass success rate after about half an hour. One in two passes going astray. They've got a lot of average players, and that bearded CB looks about 2 stone overweight. Big half coming up for us. Please don't take Deulofeu off.

To be fair, it's very difficult to come alive after a lack of playing time. it's not easy to get up to speed, esp after only playing for 22 mins like.

Thought in fairness we played ok first half, but again individual error and we are chasing the game.

That said it took until the last five minutes to create any decent attempts on goal.

We're just not good enough. It's that simple.

We invite too much pressure at the back with the flippy floppy possession between our back four, we're terrible at all manner of set pieces, we leave ourselves over exposed time and time again and we're wasteful in and around the box.

If it wasn't for Barkley's revival, and the blossoming partnership between Deulofeu and Lukaku, we'd be right in the mire.

That's just 2 wins in the last 10 league matches. Utter, utter tripe.

I think that's a bit harsh.

I don't like his attitude overall, and he goes missing for long periods, but as a sub to bring on with 30-20 mins remaining in games we are chasing he could've been a real threat this season.

Being given 10 minutes here and there hasn't helped us, or him at all.

Lennon has been underused too; he was excellent last season.

People need to stop arguing the toss.

Martinez isn't good enough and I am sick of listening to excuses as to why he might be.

You can argue that going forward we are great sure and that we score enough (Second highest scorers in league) but the over all tactics are more out of hope than it being structured.

We always just hope not to concede from set pieces, we just hope that the team over hits the ball or something, there is no actual structure to our defensive play what so ever.

It is about how you defend and attack as a unit, Martinez just doesn't work on these things, always feel we will concede.

You could argue that we should have had enough chances in the last 4 games to win 8 games, probably true, but the over all picture is that Martinez just doesn't know how to game manage at all.

His subs are absolutely appalling.

If Leicester hadn't have scored the 3rd, Mirallas and Lennon would not have came on.

We have an amazing squad of young players, we just need the right guidance for them.

One of the main things for me this season was has Martinez learned his lesson.

Its obvious what the answer is, and he refuses to learn it because of his stubbornness to move away from a philosophy which in all honesty is not a philosophy at all.

I should be enjoying this group of players we have, but why every game I go into nervous I don't know.

It is drilled into me as it is in the players that we don't seem to harbor any belief we will kill games off and win, which is madness given the quality on the field.

Martinez out for me, its no just shite, it's boring now, that's the worst thing, same old shite and he isn't changing it.

I really wouldn't be happy with that. Mid-table just is not, not, not good enough and just means we're accepting/cementing our slide down the table sharing mediocrity with those in around us. It would also almost certainly mean any of our better talent would pick up and go. I barely give a crap about either of the League Cup in isolation or the scoring record. League cup would be the cherry on the cake for the season but there has to be a cake to put it on.

I've not seen any of the game. Yet, if we want to become winners or at least a team that looks like it's trying to win we need to change it up.
You'd forgive him for last season being "second season syndrome". You'd forgive him if he didn't have certain players at his disposal. This wreaks of poor mismanagement. He definitely needs to take a more pragmatic approach and think we can just be like Barca/Arsenal and pass it into the net.
Don't get me wrong the players need to be looking at themselves too but does anyone really think that he has an aggressive bone in his body. He's only really shown disappointment a few times when interviewed after games and takes far too many positives out of too many negative aspects of a poor game.
There needs to be some kind of ruthless aspect to his bow and I just don't think he has it in him.
I think fans who don't want him gone are still looking at Moyes and cling into having a manager who will focus on the positives rather than Moyes who was exactly the opposite. I swear if we had moyes and Martinez combined he'd be a cracking manager. If we had Moyes pragmatism and defensive attributes and Robertos attacking and positive attributes we'd be quids in, theoretically.
But alas, we're stuck with him for now for how much longer is anyone's guess.
I don't know what it will take for him to realise where he's going wrong. I can't see the players pointing it out and with what's happening in the board room and the unfortunate circumstances with Kenwright, he's escaping punishment as far as we're aware.
The board need to show some balls and tell him what's what. Hopefully they did that after last season. I'd like to think he's having to constantly look over his shoulder and that would spur him on to change his philosophy and look for a better solution. But I just can't see it coming. Given the fact that there isn't someone decent to get on the cheap/free. We might have to grin and bear it.

Did anyone honestly think Leicester would be 5 points clear at the top of the table almost half way through the season? Or that Chelsea (the current champions!!) would be just above the drop zone at the same point? Get real and start entertaining the possibility....

the game was shite, but I saw something new today

two stewards fighting over a seat!

honestly, well, not fighting, but squaring up

they were in their fifties, and it was just after half time

I'd never seen either of them there before to be honest, but one had already sat down, and the other was stood with his face pressed against the one already sitting down saying it was "his seat"

the little stand off went on for a good 3 or 4 minutes, with heckles of "Behave or we'll throw you out" being the most polite of the shouts....

then we told them all to "sit down and watch the match" and I told the girl steward it was all because they wanted to sit by her.

then they all got their incident books out to write up their incident reports, but the one sitting down just had a notepad - and someone had drawn love hearts on the page he'd folded over!

oh, and Leicester fans started acting like Villa fans and offering people out.....then chanting "Chat shit get banged" which I told them that I knew it wasn't a threat, it's just describing the dating ritual in Leicester

the game was shite, but I saw something new today

two stewards fighting over a seat!

honestly, well, not fighting, but squaring up

they were in their fifties, and it was just after half time

I'd never seen either of them there before to be honest, but one had already sat down, and the other was stood with his face pressed against the one already sitting down saying it was "his seat"

the little stand off went on for a good 3 or 4 minutes, with heckles of "Behave or we'll throw you out" being the most polite of the shouts....

Walk in the park. 5-0. This will be the game that brings Leicester down to earth.

Nailed it!

Mate, we have very good players

The manager can't manage

Get rid, before we lose ALL our young and talented players.

I didn't say we had terrible players. We have the best squad I've seen at Everton in my lifetime, and they're being used in the wrong fashion, with pedestrian football that, for the most part, goes absolutely nowhere.

If Martinez was barking out orders and the players were ignoring them, the players could be blamed more, but it isn't largely down to them right now, and wasn't throughout last season.

He HAS to change his mantra, otherwise he won't last here. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like he ever will.

Has anyone mentioned the stupidity of Colemen for their third goal? He threw the ball in from our own corner when Stones was still running back onto the pitch having just slid off it, the ball then deflected across our box and unsurprisingly to their player given Stones wasn't in position. What the fuck?! The bloke looks thick as fuck and clearly is, despite being a great footballer. At 1-2 we were in the game but that ruined it. Worst decision of the year from an Everton player.

Cleverly looked as average as everyone knew he was at United and Kone needs to be dropped for Mirallas. He doesn't have a clue with the ball at his feet in the box and doesn't do much else. Mirallas is a better finisher, is quicker and takes a half decent corner relatively for us.

Im also looking forward to Jags returning as much as everyone else I am sure! Stones really needs to get stronger.

I hate to say it, as I'd love to see Stones as Everton captain still in 15 years time, but given that won't happen maybe we should have sold him? If we lined up with a top keeper (Schezny?), Scott Dann and a decent creative midfielder with the money from him it's hard to argue we'd be faring better this year. It's lovely watching him dribble the ball out and hopefully he'll be doing it for barca rather than Chelsea when he's inevitably sold in the summer.

It's sloppy from players who have picked up sloppy habits. We've come to expect it now.

Our players don't follow any rules of percentages or common sense. Just play out regardless. There's a time and a place and it appears no one is telling them this

Missed the game, but watched it just now.

Honestly, we make bad decisions too often and leave ourselves exposed.

On the second, Mahrez simply laid the ball off and waltzed into the middle of the pitch, no one followed him and with Baines so high up the field Barry is forced wide leaving us exposed.

We desperately need Jags back, McCarthy might help as well but overall we are too open to even imagine getting into Europe. We concede regularly, we must have 1, maybe 2 clean sheets all year. Can't even blame Howard today for me, even on the second, he has to come for that.

Another disappointing game, even when we seem in good form we can't win. What will happen when we look poor? Martinez needs to make some changes or we'll end up in the same spot as last year.
