Michael Owen predicts Everton v Leicester
By Harvey Byrne
Former England striker Michael Owen has predicted a double chance win or draw for Leicester against Everton on Sunday afternoon.
The Toffees are currently preparing for a clash at Goodison Park against last season’s champions now led by Craig Shakespeare.
The two teams have already met at Everton’s famous home this season with a meeting coming between the pair as recently as January.
However, it will be one the Merseysiders will have been quick to forget with goals from Ahmed Musa proving too much for a lone Romelu Lukaku strike, dumping them out of the FA Cup.
Now, former Liverpool man believes the Foxes will get another result at Goodison, highlighting the loss of star defender Ashley Williams who is missing the match via a suspension.

“Leicester won at Goodison in the FA Cup early in the season and Craig Shakespeare will equal the PL record for the number of consecutive wins from the start of a tenure with a club if the Foxes make it six on the spin for their new manager,” told Owen to Bet Victor.
“Everton must do without Ashley Williams through suspension and I think Leicester will get a result although confidence is tempered by the fact that the Foxes travel to Vicente Calderon Stadium Madrid on Wednesday for their |Champions League quarterfinal 1st leg with Atletico Madrid.”
Everton’s last two games have seen them draw with Manchester United and suffer a humiliating defeat against Liverpool, while before that they had picked up three wins from four league matches.
They will be keen to return to winning ways at home against Leicester as they aim for a finish in the top seven in the league, but the Foxes are in stunning form themselves with six wins from their last six matches in all competitions.
