Everton play Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Everton managed to get back to winning ways against Chelsea and go into the tie with high confidence but an away trip to Leicester sounds a tricky affair. The Foxes sit third on the table and look a dangerous side despite their injury concerns. Everton themselves are compromised due to the absence of Seamus Coleman and James Rodriguez.

Ahead of the tie, we had a friendly chat with Foxes of Leciester‘s site expert Thomas Bradley Alderman (@TB1884) to know the mood in the Foxes camp and how are the fans gearing up for the clash.

PRT: Everton put up a brilliant display against Chelsea after a series of unimpressive performances, do you think they can keep their momentum going against Leicester?

"Thomas: I hope not – as a Leicester City fan, of course. But Everton impressed me with their manager and the personnel he’s attracted and developed before this season even began. Now they’re really rivalling us in our chase for top four."

PRT: Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the man of the moment. Do the Foxes have any specific plans to stop him?

"Thomas: Brendan Rodgers is a meticulous planner before games – despite some of our home results this campaign – so a scheme to stop DCL will be in place. I’m guessing we won’t be able to prevent him scoring as Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu are both unavailable."

PRT: With James Rodriguez still out, does that give Leicester a bit of an edge as Everton may lack in playmaking?

"Thomas: Especially as James Maddison is hitting world-class form! Rodriguez is a huge miss, in my opinion."

PRT: Which Leicester player will be the biggest concern for the Toffees?

"Thomas: Too many to mention; though I can’t see Michael Keane stopping Jamie Vardy, to be honest."

PRT: here will be the key battle in the field?

"Thomas: Midfield. Although attacking wingbacks are now key. James Justin is an underrated part of Leicester’s attacking fluency, at present."

PRT: What’s your score prediction?

"Thomas: 2-1 to Leicester. Sorry, Toffees."
