STAR FOOTBALL PREVIEW Mon: Leicester v Everton

In the Monday night clash in the Premier League, itโ€™s a huge six-pointer at the bottom of the table as Leicester City lock horns with Everton at the King Power Stadium.

There has been a slight uptick in results for Leicester since the sacking of Brendan Rodgers and subsequent arrival of Dean Smith as interim manager with the Foxes collecting a very valuable four points in their last two matches with a win over Wolves followed by a tense draw with Leeds.

Jamie Vardy, who has struggled for goals and fitness this season, was the man to provide that crucial late equaliser against Leeds in their last Premier League outing.

They do still remain in the bottom-three, though, currently occupying 18th-spot in the league table with 29 points from 33 matches. However, a win would lift them out and away from the drop-zone and massively boost their survival chances.

They will be without Kelechi Iheanacho, though, who suffered an injury whilst setting up Vardy for the equaliser against Leeds and is likely to be missing for the rest of the season.

Everton have always seemed to find a way to escape relegation in recent seasons but, with five games left of their season, Sean Dycheโ€™s men look to be in serious trouble of dropping into the Championship.

They were pitifully bad in their most recent Premier League match, losing 4-1 to Champions League-chasing Newcastle United thanks to goals from Callum Wilson, Joelinton and Jacob Murphy.

It is looking bleak for them with their proud top-flight status under serious risk but, just like Leicester, a win for them on Monday night would be massive for their survival hopes.

Leicester are the side coming into this one with momentum, though, and so I feel more confident about them securing the result that they need on Monday night.

Therefore, I am going to back one of starsports.betโ€™s appealing build-a-bet specials of a home win, over 2.5 goals and James Maddison to score anytime.
