TEAM NEWS

Ronald Koeman is optimistic Morgan Schneiderlin could return from a calf injury to face Leicester City.

The Frenchman missed the Toffees’ last two outings against Liverpool and Manchester United but could feature at Goodison Park. 

However, Aaron Lennon and James McCarthy are still unavailable.

For the Foxes, Wes Morgan and Nampalys Mendy are absent with back and ankle problems respectively.

FORM

Everton are looking to maintain their strong home form when they take on Leicester on Sunday. 

The Blues have only been beaten once in the league at Goodison and have collected six straight wins at the Grand Old Lady in 2017. A seventh would match a Premier League club record.

After the point gained at Manchester United in week, Koeman said in his pre-match press conference that six points from the games against Leicester and Burnley could help Everton break into the top six.

The Foxes meanwhile have won six successive games since appointing Craig Shakespeare as Claudio Ranieri’s replacement. 

In that time they have pulled away from the drop zone, with their last outing a 2-0 win over Sunderland.

Albrighton

KEY MANMarc Albrighton

The former Aston Villa winger has been a mainstay in the side since his arrival on a free transfer in 2014.

Joining Leicester, he was instrumental in their ‘great escape’ as both a winger and a converted wing back as the Foxes won seven out of their last nine matches to stay up.

A season later, he was again a regular under Claudio Ranieri and was a key performer in a four-man midfield that also included Riyad Mahrez, N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater.

Having scored the club’s first ever Champions League goal against Club Brugge, he followed that up with one of the two goals that saw off Sevilla and booked the Foxes a place in the quarter finals.

Albrighton also leads the way for assists for the Foxes in the Premier League, with five.

MAN IN THE MIDDLE
Bobby Madley

West Yorkshire native Madley takes charge of his 29th game of the season at Goodison Park on Sunday.

This will be his third Everton fixture, having overseen the 1-0 loss at Bournemouth and the defeat at Stamford Bridge to Chelsea.

In his 28 games so far, he has issued 116 yellow cards and three reds.
