Leicester City are riding a wave of confidence that’s carried them through six straight wins. They first picked up steam in a morale boosting comeback in the second half of the first leg against Sevilla and are now just one game away from carrying that form into the quarter finals.
Today’s opponents Everton will be a big hurdle in that path, however. The Toffees have dropped to 7th with just one point from their last two games, but were in great from before then, and were one late penalty away from beating Man Utd in the week. They’re a strong side, especially at home where they’ve lost just one this year. Fortunately for us, that was to Leicester, in the cup.
