Leicester City


Five games to go for Everton, and with barely about everything going their way from Saturday ’ mho fixtures, the Blues need points urgently. Watford ’ s relegation was confirmed and Burnley slipped to a heavy home get the better of, and immediately the Toffees have two games in hand over the Clarets, but all of that will count for nothing if they don ’ metric ton start making those count by picking up points .
nowadays ’ second opponents Leicester City were knocked out of the Europa Conference League at the semi-final degree in disappointing circumstances on Thursday, so it will be interesting to see how many changes Brendan Rodgers will make and indeed with nothing to play for how motivate they will be .

Everton ’ s away shape has been absolutely awful — the worst in the league actually — so Frank Lampard will have to find a way to channel the aggression and saturation we saw at Anfield and then last weekend against Chelsea at the King Power Stadium for the Blues to have any chance of surviving the drop .
