After a bright start, things have gone wrong for Sam Allardyce at Everton in the recent weeks.
The Toffees were lucky to get a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich last week, and they remain without a win in their last seven games in all competitions. On Tuesday, the Merseysiders will host high-flying Leicester City at Goodison Park.
The hosts find themselves ninth in the table with 28 points – a mere six points clear of the relegation zone. Unlike Leicester, Everton were not involved in FA Cup on the weekend.
Meanwhile, the visitors are without a defeat in their last seven games in all competitions. The Foxes have picked up seven points from their last three league games and have climbed above the likes of Everton and Burnley into the seventh spot.
On Saturday, Claude Puel’s side claimed a comfortable 5-1 win over League One side Peterborough United to move into the fifth round of FA Cup. New signing Fousseni Diabaté scored a brace in that game and he could in contention for the game against the Toffees.
When both sides met at King Power Stadium earlier in the season, the Foxes claimed a 2-0 win.
