On Sunday, we will see two sides with new managers take on each other at King Power Stadium.
The Foxes, who won 2-1 at Swansea under caretaker manager Michael Appleton last weekend, will be under the guidance of their new permanent boss Claude Puel this weekend. The win against the Swans was Foxes’ second of the league campaign.
They also registered a convincing 3-1 win at Leeds Utd in League Cup during midweek, and two wins in the row must have helped their confidence ahead of the game against the Toffees. The hosts have nine points from their share of games, and they sit 14th in the table.
Toffees suffered a humiliating 5-2 home win to Arsenal last weekend, leading to the sacking of Ronald Koeman. The Merseysiders, who also lost to Chelsea in League Cup during midweek, will be under caretaker boss David Unsworth on Sunday. They are without a win in their last six games in all competitions.
As things stand, Everton find themselves in the 18th spot with just eight points from their share of games. Toffees’ main problem has been scoring goals this season, and they have managed to score just seven up until now this season.
Last season, the Toffees completed a double over their opponents and won the corresponding fixture 2-0.
