Foxes of Leicester predict the Leicester City XI for the Everton match. Meanwhile also discussing two items of King Power news.

The upcoming Premier League contest will most likely be a close one, with the Toffees and Foxes fairly closely matched it would seem. Certainly if EPL standing is anything to go by at the beginning of November, the two squads or starting sides are similar in quality. Talking of lineups, let’s dive into some information and FoL’s expectations.

Jonny Evans appeared to be training comfortably at Seagrave, judging by photographs published towards the end of the week leading up to the clash with the Merseyside outfit. So I expect the Northern Ireland international to be in the team on Saturday:

Danny Ward; James Justin, Evans, Wout Faes, Timothy Castagne; Boubakary Soumare; Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Youri Tielemans; Harvey Barnes, James Maddison; Patson Daka.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall subbed early and Caglar Soyuncu’s Leicester City future

FoL now explain why Leicester City midfielder Dewsbury-Hall was substituted at half-time versus Manchester City. Basically the midfielder “kept losing the ball”, according to Rodgers. And, this time, FoL would have to agree with the Northern Irishman. For all of KDH’s qualities – there are many – the Englishman can be slightly careless in possession.

The LCFC gaffer said that the team need to be extra careful when they have the ball, he added that it is often gifted in dangerous areas. Nevertheless, if I were Rodgers, I would continue starting the 24-year-old until the break for the World Cup.

Another story reported this week – from a credible source – suggests that Caglar Soyuncu is likely to leave in January. Soyuncu might perhaps have played his final match for Leicester, after being used very sparingly by boss Brendan Rodgers especially this season, if the report is to be taken as the truth.

Next. Maddison is in Southgate’s initial England squad. dark

I am a fan of the Turk; naturally I was chiefly impressed with him in seasons gone by rather than the last campaign and parts of the one prior. If the east Midlands club’s manager doesn’t want the centreback come New Year, be that Rodgers or whoever, they probably should cut their losses.
