LEICESTER (4-4-1-1)

Leicester City are back on the top of the Barclays Premier League after another hugely impressive win, the 2-1 home victory over reigning champions Chelsea.

It was their ninth league game without defeat; during that marvellous spell they have taken 23 points from a possible 27, with England striker Jamie Vardy claiming his 15th goal of the season against Chelsea and Riyad Mahrez adding his 12th.

Everton return to Goodison Park after drawing 1-1 with Norwich City at Carrow Road last weekend where Romelu Lukaku scored his 15th goal of the season and eighth in the last seven Barclays Premier League and Capital One Cup games.

The last three Premier League meetings between these teams have ended in draws, including both matches last season which both finished 2-2. At the King Power Stadium in Leicester the home side came from behind twice to earn a point.

At Goodison, Leicester were leading 2-1 until an 88th minute own goal by Matthew Upson cost the visitors two points.
