Goal-Scoring Problems for Both Teams

Both teams have managed to score only once in their two EPL games this month.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester team enjoyed a seven-week run in second place from early November until Christmas during a spell in which they won 12 of their opening 16 games.

Things slipped in the New Year and in the five matches before shut-down, they won only once while drawing twice and losing twice.

There have been just four wins in the last 15 outings for the club which surprisingly lifted the EPL title in 2016 – and just one win in seven games.

They returned to action with an uninspiring 1-1 draw at struggling Watford after the break and were then held 0-0 at home by Brighton & Hove Albion in another dour contest.

It means there have been just four wins in the last 15 outings for the club which surprisingly lifted the EPL title in 2016 – and just one win in seven games.

It also meant they have failed to score in four of their last six league games although there was a 4-0 thrashing of strugglers Aston Villa just before the break in early March.

Leicester were also beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in the FA Cup quarterfinal last Sunday.

Everton’s re-start began with a 0-0 draw at home in the Merseyside derby against leaders Liverpool. They then won 1-0 at bottom club Norwich City last weekend.

That marked improvement upon the three-match spell before the shut-down when they lost twice and drew once in a three-match run – with their final game before suspension a 4-0 hammering by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Improvement Under Ancelotti

Overall, there has been an up-turn under Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti since he took charge on December 21 last year.

After only three defeats under his command, the team has climbed from 16th to 12th place.

But they have scored only 38 goals all season – with just two in their most recent four matches.

Leicester have the division’s leading scorer in Jamie Vardy, who has hit the target 19 times. But he has not scored since the re-start.

Like Everton, Leicester have not exactly been free-scoring, with a tally of 59 goals.

There was a 2-1 win for Leicester when these teams met at the King Power Stadium last December.

Leicester have been more sound defensively and have conceded only 29 times while Everton have allowed in 46 goals.

They also met in the quarterfinal of the EFL Carabao Cup at Goodison Park on December 18 with Leicester winning 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out after a 2-2 draw.

Ancelotti has endeared himself to Everton’s fans by remaining unbeaten in the six home games in which he has been in charge. There have been three draws, two in the most recent games at their own HQ against Manchester United and Liverpool.

In total, Everton have won seven home matches, drawn five and lost three – with all those defeats under former boss Marco Silva.

They have scored 19 times on their own patch and conceded 15 goals.

Leicester’s away record consists of an impressive seven wins, three draws and defeats with 29 goals scored and 14 conceded.

Pick: Draw +197
