Match Preview

Frank Lampard is hopeful of being able to pick from the same available players as last Sunday when he takes his side to the King Power Stadium this weekend.

Everton travel to the East Midlands for the first of their remaining three away fixtures knowing that they will likely need to pick up points on the road if they are to drag themselves out of the relegation zone.

The Blues have made Goodison Park a fortress in recent weeks under Frank Lampard where the backing of the club's vociferous support has helped propel them to three wins and a draw since mid-March but have failed to pick up a single point away from home since December.

Everton have come close under Lampard and led at Burnley before individual errors and a touch of bad luck conspired to condemn them to a 3-2 defeat but the manager will be hoping to finally build some of that momentum off another rousing win at Goodison.

Last Sunday's victory over Chelsea brought the Toffees to within two points of both Burnley and Leeds United who had played a game more heading into the weekend and now would be the ideal moment for Everton to win consecutive fixtures for the first time since September.

Lampard is hopeful of being able to pick from almost the same available players as last Sunday when he takes his side to the King Power Stadium this weekend.

The Everton boss explained that there were "a couple of little niggles" in the team after the win over Chelsea, with Richarlison still feeling the effects of a knock he picked up at Anfield in the Merseyside derby a fortnight ago.

"Richy's got a bit of a sore ankle from when he twisted it at Liverpool," Lampard said in his press conference ahead of the clash with Leicester. Hopefully he will be fine."

The manager indicated that while Ben Godfrey and Donny van de Beek are still ruled out, André Gomes is fit again after missing the last couple of games with a soft-tissue problem.

"Ben's not fit," Lampard said of the defender who was forced to pull out the derby when he strained a thigh muscle. "Hopefully he will be training with us in the middle of next week."

Assuming Richarlison is passed fit, it gives Lampard the chance to name an unchanged side, albeit perhaps with a more conventional back four, which would see Yerry Mina playing back-to-back games for the first time since he returned from his latest injury lay-off.

The Colombian was omitted from the side that faced Liverpool in the Merseyside derby after only three days' rest but a full week's recuperation this time should enable him to feature.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin continues to be available but has not been risked in the last couple of games as the club manages his gradual recovery from a serious thigh injury and it would be a surprise to see him named on the bench again for this one.

For their part, Leicester have an almost clean bill of health, with only Wilfried Ndidi and Ryan Bertrand ruled out with long-term injuries. They were, however, involved in European Conference League action in Rome on Thursday evening and Everton will, no doubt, be hoping that the Foxes' travels and the psychological effects of defeat to AS Roma will work in their favour.

Brendan Rodgers' men were beaten 3-1 at Tottenham last time out but, as they showed at Goodison Park last month, however, they are a talented team and since losing at home to Spurs in the reverse fixture back in January, they're unbeaten in five Premier League games at home.

While Lampard betrayed some naïveté in his first few away games as Everton boss, there is evidence that in recent weeks he has got the measure of the squad he inherited and made them a lot harder to beat, particularly on their travels.

A repeat of the defensive solidity and posture that he and his players adopted at Anfield and against Chelsea last time out would afford them the platform from which try and hurt Leicester on the break while safe-guarding against the predatory threat of Jamie Vardy who is expected to play after missing the match against Everton on Merseyside through injury.

With Burnley hosting Aston Villa 24 hours earlier, the Blues will know how at least one of their rivals in the relegation dogfight will have fared this weekend while Leeds are at Arsenal at the same time.

As Lampard has said, though, he and his players need only be concerned with themselves. It goes without saying that a repeat of last season's win at the King Power would be massive for Everton.

Kick-off: 2pm, Sunday, 8 May, 2022
Referee: Craig Pawson
VAR: Lee Mason
Last Time: Leicester City 0 - 2 Everton

Predicted Line-up: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Holgate, Mykolenko, Delph, Doucouré, Iwobi, Gordon, Gray, Richarlison

I don't care who plays. Let's take that passion and atmosphere from Sunday to Filbert Street or whatever it's called these days.

The supporters will. The players need to.

Difficult to change the starting 11 that won last week. Especially as Demarai Gray played a lot better. Still prefer Richarlison on the left and DCL/Rondon in the middle but I won’t be complaining. If we bring the same organisation and commitment we will be hard to beat and could well grab a win. COYBLUES !

On a different note, amazing to see the concrete staircases being lifted into position in the Stadium.

Apparently Calvert-Lewin is still not fit so it may have to be the same 11 but I would prefer the midfield to be beefed up with Allan, Delph and Doucoure with Iwobi and Gordon flanking Richarlsion. Gray to come on as an impact sub to show Leicester what he's made of.

Maybe play Begovic for this one, them Leicester fans might upset Jordan.

Dare I start believing we could stay up? But then they kick you right where it hurts when you do. COYB.

It almost goes without saying it would be helpful to keep a clean sheet. We’ve only had one of those all season away from home, in the 2-0 win at Brighton in August. Leicester have been vulnerable at set pieces. Given how difficult we find it to create and convert chances in open play, that might be our best hope of a goal, especially with Yerry Mina in the team.
David Pearl
9 Posted 06/05/2022 at 20:21:42
Interesting to see if Iwobi again starts as a wing back. You never know what you get with Leicester this season and l think we can frustrate them. We should keep it tight but with a low possession rate it won't be a good watch.

I'm hoping next week when we will have more of the ball that Frank plays Delli and inserts some class into the team. Coyb

Defensive solidity is key. Quietly confident about this.

Glad that Mina has held together - vital to our defence. Hope we can start with the same team and the same frame of mind. Please keep Gomes away, this is not the battle for him.

Will @11,

I totally agree with you over Gomes.

Kevin Molloy
14 Posted 06/05/2022 at 21:07:53
Well, Leicester will be as flat as a pancake, sod all now to play for except pride. And Watford will have just been relegated when we roll up.

Six of the easiest points we'll ever pick up, right?

Will Mabon
15 Posted 06/05/2022 at 21:12:56
Bobby, and I agree re. VdB. The whole player fitness/injuries situation has been terrible at Everton for too long. I don't know if this has any bearing in VdB's situation, but it's being seen more widely in the game now too.
Will Mabon

Kevin, I really wish you hadn't said that...
Mike Gaynes
17 Posted 06/05/2022 at 21:16:05
Geoff #7, that's another one of those posts from the other side of the solar system. I am absolutely certain you are the only Everton fan on any planet who would sit Pickford after last weekend's brilliance.

Will #11, correct. There are battles for Gomes, but we don't play any U-16 teams on our schedule.

Maybe if we're a goal down in minute 80, he should get a chance. Other than that... no thanks.

Will Mabon
18 Posted 06/05/2022 at 21:33:50
Mike, rumours, rumours, unreliable as they often are of course - but TalkSport earlier said Everton prepared to sell Pickford for rebuilding funds, mentioning Spurs and Newcastle. Odd that over the years, many of the players least valued here seem to be the ones that the other teams want...
Paul Kernot
21 Posted 06/05/2022 at 23:11:52
I watched the Roma v Leicester game. Roma played a similar game to us v Chelsea, scored & were then very solid defensively. Leicester could only manage 2 half assed shots all match. Obviously I'm hoping for a repeat.
Fran Mitchell
22 Posted 06/05/2022 at 23:19:21
Important to keep shape and stay solid. A draw is not a bad result, a defeat is a terrible one.

If we play like we have done - ceding possession and hitting on the break, we have a chance. They are worse than us at set-pieces, so Mina on corners could be a danger. And Richy and Gordon targeting Soyuncu, running at him, and we will win free kicks.

Another 1-0 would be fantastic.

They say never change a winning side - but I don't really agree. Too often we've gone with that philosophy, and we havnt won 2 games on the trot since lord knows when.

Grey was improved against Chelsea, but I think either Alli, who imo has shown signs of improvement and an ability to make key passes, in a false 9 with Richy and Gordon flanking, or DCL if he's fit. Rondon also has done well and having a target man could be useful when playing traditional 'away team' tactics.

Between Allan and Doucoure in the middle is a toss of the coin tbh. Doucoure offers more going forward, and on the counter. But Allan may well be better suited to shackling Maddison.

Pickford
Myko, Mina, Holgate, Coleman
Allan, Iwobi, Delph
Gordon, Alli, Richy

Grey, DCL, Doucoure, Rondon all offer options from the bench to change things.

I'm going for 2-0 Everton, Richy and Alli. COYFB!

It would be great if the Club would put on a few FREE busses to the game, a nice gesture to many fans that cant get to the match. To all that make it, please get there early and cheer on the Club bus as per Chelsea, the players will be lifted to see your support, we can have a few beers after the game - THREE Points, Cheers COYB Gerry

IMO, if Everton can get into Leicester from the off, and keep the squad spirit, tempo, and discipline, shown, v Chelsea, I don’t expect Everton to loose this game,;and the other remaining fixtures.

Yes, a win is vital, but to take a point is massive in context, but I expect Everton to win this game, if Richarlison is leading the line.

Burnley, every shot is going in, Leeds, have a tough run in.

If Everton can get the 3 points, at Leicester, I reckon, Everton will be safe.

A point won’t be a disaster.

But as we all know in, football, strange things in context, do happen.

The Chelsea game last week, was something unique, but the the whole week, in the week before, after the game at our old ground, for me, in some ways set the tone.

It was Everton at its finest, and the true grit Evertonians, fighting - Dunkirk spirit, that stood out then, and has stood out for Everton FC., over time, and in the last 30 years plus and the close shaves, with pending disasters.

Leicester, is massive and Everton, will be there on Sunday.

Fekkn proud and this is a massive period in the clubs history, but Everton will prevail, and be in this EPL, in 2022-2023.

Surprised I've not seen more focus on just how poor our set pieces have been. Not sure what Gordon has been doing different in training but
whilst he's great at winning free kicks he's appalling at taking them. And never seen one person kick so many corners out before they come in to play!
In this respect, we miss Rodders, Sigi, Digne and Townsend.
This is Leicester's Achilles heal and we don't create much or are clinical enough in open play so need to be more threatening from set pieces.

The selection for Leicester is irrelevant compared to the selection for the first day of next season, and then some. So gross reckless/negligent have our owner/board been in their, ahem, alleged management of the club that at best we can merely hope to remain in the EPL for the next year at least.

They've so hugely bollocksed up expenditure for six years as to risk the worst sanction ever delivered to a so-called "top club" in negating their ability to merely survive, never mind prosper.

Pickford, Charly, DCL and Gordon are the only sales that MAY enable our self-proclaimed football know-alls, only via Billy Bullshit admittedly, to show savvy as THEY all ponder who the fuck to sign for peanuts this summer to deliver the polar opposite of what Kenwright's chosen one, Moshiri, spouted out six useless years ago.

Meanwhile, may of us seemingly still cling onto the apparent hope that, despite the obvious and spreading realisation that we are inept to the whole wide world in terms of football savvy, we have at the same time somehow by-passed players and agents zeroing in on a life-enhancing final contract with fuck-all effort.

Yes, I think keeping Mina fit for the rest of the remaining matches could be key from a defensive point of view. I also agree if possible to stay with the starting eleven against Chelsea, if any of the forwards are looking jaded or having an off-day get Dele on earlier, and what has happened with El Ghazi ?

He appears to be on the bench most matches but never used, I am not saying he is a World beater but from what I have seen of him he is not that bad, and has a goal in him. Demarai Gray will have a lot to prove on Sunday, so let's hope he plays out of his skin and puts the side that rejected him to the sword !

COYB 💙💙

We need to win this game as Burnley will beat Villa and I think Leeds will get a result at Arsenal. We need to get this away win at long last. Please God make it a win for us and defeats for Burnley and Leeds.
Dale Self
31 Posted 07/05/2022 at 00:28:15
Stick to the script prvided by Jim Wilson. Dont worry about being predictable or possession time just stay in the match and wait for the opportunities to break. 4-5-1 stay on the fullbacks as done against Chelsea. The longer we stay in it the more the lineup will believe and produce
Pete Clarke
32 Posted 07/05/2022 at 01:45:57
If we had lost against Chelsea then I’d say we would be doomed and the same applies today. Must not lose.
Backs to the wall mentality but just see how Leicester are playing because they must be deflated right now. Richarlison can run them ragged if they are showing signs of being low.
Gray is due a goal and what better fixture for him to do it.

Wow, there's a new Yank owner in the Prem.

US media reporting tonight that LA Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly and his group have bought Chelsea for £4.25 billion.

That's about $5.25 billion -- the most expensive sale of a sports team in history. The previous record was less than half that.

Insane.

Mike Gaynes
34 Posted 07/05/2022 at 02:15:00
DK #29, I predicted when he got him that El Ghazi would score one huge goal for vital points. We're running out of time for it to happen, but I'm sticking to my prediction.

Check your email mate. Everyone else, I’ve had a depressing day of being poked and prodded in hospital so Everton better bloody well not get relegated as it might finish me off as my fortunes tend to mirror the clubs. I just hope Burnley lose tomorrow as psychologically it woukd give us a lift before a tough away game.

Jerome Shields
38 Posted 07/05/2022 at 06:00:07
Everton hav to replicate the style of play and set up that was. managed against Liverpool and Chelsea. Still think that Frank needs to substitute earlier in the second half than he has been doing.

Always thought that the two fixtures against Leciester would be crucial in the run in. Glad Everton got a wake up call against them at Goodison, in the first fixture. . That could still prove a important point. Surely they will know what is required this game.

Eddie Dunn
39 Posted 07/05/2022 at 08:00:06
Will- Pickford could never join Newcastle for obvious reasons.
On today's game, I hope we park the bus and hit them on the break. We got very good at it last season.
I wonder just how fragile DCL is. He has been on the bench but Lampard shows little inclination in risking him. Is Dom being wrapped in cottonwool for the games Frank has earmarked as winnable?
Tony Everan
40 Posted 07/05/2022 at 08:01:12
Mike #33, Eye-watering money. The deal says £2.5b for the shares and the £1.75b to improve the infrastructure etc over time. Its a strange deal, wonder if the latter part is guaranteed and over what time period. Always get to thinking about Everton being taken over once the stadium is built. That, combined with an upsurge of form and stability from Lampard building a team, will make us an attractive proposition.
Bernie Quinn
41 Posted 07/05/2022 at 08:16:22
ieron, sorry about the health news. Hope its a fast recovery. To Don A. don't despair. Despite losing our top players, we can still field a decent team of both young and experienced lads next season who can give a good account of themselves no matter what Division we are in. Such as -- Begovic --- Patterson, Branthwaite, Godfrey, Mykolenko -- Davies, Holgate, Townsend -- Gray, Iwobi and Gordon. Then there is Coleman, Kenny, Keane Delph? Dobbin, Warrington eetc. Under Frank and his Team's coaching they could turn out a fine Side. And if the FA leave us alone nd we get rid of BK and his yes-men,Frank might be offered a few bob at Xmas to buy a couple of players he needs.. just keep Smiling
Danny O’Neill
42 Posted 07/05/2022 at 08:17:43
I'd kind of agree Eddie, but there are plenty of examples of those who have walked both ways across Stanley Park. Never say never, more so in the modern game. Money talks. It always has.

I hope you're right about Dominic being wrapped up for important games, but I can't help think it is preserving a sellable asset.

Anyway. To tomorrow. Whoever plays, lets go and get those points.

Dave Abrahams
43 Posted 07/05/2022 at 09:02:32
Kieran (36), I hope Burnley lose and Everton win to lift your spirits, as well as Everton fans everywhere. Best of luck with your health problems.

44 Posted 07/05/2022 at 09:16:46
4 points from Leicester and Watford would put us in a great position and to some extent take alot of pressure of the players heading into those final two home games where they will be able to play more freely.

I hope Lampard doesn't rotate too much, if at all, with possibly one eye on Watford.

Dave Abrahams
45 Posted 07/05/2022 at 09:19:53
Kunal (44), yes four points from those two games would be very good, but let’s be greedy and get the six that would be even better.
Anthony Murphy
46 Posted 07/05/2022 at 10:03:17
I reckon we will need 8 points overall. A win and a draw from our next 2 is a minimum really. Two draws would not be a total disaster but would likely leave us playing catch up right to the bitter end
Brian Harrison
47 Posted 07/05/2022 at 10:10:44
I am going to the game tomorrow, my first away league game in about 20 years tomorrow. Like many have said our next 2 games I think will determine whether we get relegated or not, our away record is appalling and that is the main reason we are where we are. When we played Leicester at home they were far the better team and could have been 2 up inside the first 5 minutes, they will be desperate for a result for their fans having lost to Roma.

I just hope we can get something out of the game, a draw and beat Watford on Wednesday would help our cause no end. We cant rely on Burnley and Leeds to get beat we have to help ourselves and games are now running out.

Terry Farrell
50 Posted 07/05/2022 at 10:21:15
Amazed to hear Rondon still being mentioned as a starter by some on here! He cant cover the ground he can't press. We need Dom back asap but as others have said we can't afford him to break down again so it's a balancing act. Would take a point now but hoping for a win. Coyb
David Pearl
51 Posted 07/05/2022 at 11:08:41
Terry, but he can ensure the ball from Pickford doesn't just keep coming back. He wins the ball, he has the strength to hold it up and bring others into play. DCL or Richy can't do that at the moment. I understand not starting him but he has become very useful.

The spine of the team is most important and if we have Pickford, Mina and Delph all fit it makes a huge difference. Its up top we fall down with ball retention. I'm guessing if DCL is fit he has to start unless Frank didn't learn from the last time we played them.

And get well soon Kieren, l've been prodded and poked myself the past few months.

Bobby Thomas
52 Posted 07/05/2022 at 11:10:24
Terry #50

Since he returned - far too early and nowhere near fit - DCL hasn't covered any ground and he's done zero pressing. Even after the 2 week international break, when he apparently trained well and Lampard was talking him up, he still looked miles of it.

He isn't even doing the basics such as making the ball stick. His touch is off and his confidence is suffering. He won't be match fit this season now, it's too late. He's had constant niggles, can't get any rhythm and should be on the bench for an effective cameo such as Newcastle at home.

Hopefully we can stay as we are and maintain the intensity, energy and pressing. However, if a change up front is required, I'd go with Rondon

Rob Hooton
53 Posted 07/05/2022 at 11:14:55
Brian H I hope you turn out to be a lucky mascot tomorrow! If we win then we will have to make sure you are at the next away game.

We desperately need to win this, regardless of the starting lineup and formation I hope the players carry on with the spirit of the last couple of matches.

Our away record this season must be one of the worst ever in the top flight? Time to sort it out and get this bogey off our backs.

COYBB!!!

Laurie Hartley
54 Posted 07/05/2022 at 12:10:30
Terry # 50 - I am one of the people who have been calling for Rondon to start - for maybe the last 6 games. My reasons are those outlined by David @ 51. He also knows how to get in front of his marker in the box and if you saw him before the Chelsea game and when he came on as sub he was well up for it.

Having said that I can’t see Frank Lampard changing the starting line up but we may see him coming on as a sub.

At the end of the day I don’t care who starts or finishes the game as long as we get the three points because regardless of other results it will put a lot of pressure on Leeds and Burnley.

Nerve racking this is.

Up the Blues.

Robert Tressell
55 Posted 07/05/2022 at 12:10:51
Just noticed Simms has scored away at Celtic for Hearts. As he tends to, he's now building up momentum after a slow start. What an experience for him.
Paul Birmingham
57 Posted 07/05/2022 at 12:29:02
Get on the mend soon Kieran.

Everton must continue the level of performance shown v Chelsea, and take this fight to survive to victory.

Hard work and commitment, and hopefully break the away hoodoo, tomorrow and win back to back home and away games.

Ellis Sims scored a superb goal on 3 minutes, v Celtic, and he looks comfy in the Hearts team.

But tomorrow is massive for Everton, and is a game where Everton must take at least a point and ideally 3 points.

UTFT!

be very interesting to see with what gusto villa fly out of the traps today. They could do us a big favour today. if they do pull off the win, their manager will rightly be inducted into the 2022 Everton Heroes of the Great Escape hall of fame, along with Alex Iwobi and Fabian Delph.
Jim Wilson
60 Posted 07/05/2022 at 13:12:37
Dale @ 31 - totally agree mate
Our performance at Anfield made me think Lampard is now on it for away games.
Against Leicester, same again, with a bit more adventure.
Their travels this week is in our favour but they have a good passing system in place no matter who plays for them.
So we have to hit them hard on the break and I hope Richy is fully fit because he will be up for it no probs. I just hope he doesn't go over the top!
Gordon and Gray are more than capable so I just hope it all comes together for the first time since August. COYB!
Matthew Williams
61 Posted 07/05/2022 at 13:15:15
Same team,same formation,same level of commitment please lads!

I just gotta feeling that this weekend could prove very pivotal for us... Burnley to draw (sigh),Leeds to lose but most importantly us Blues to WIN.

Just think we'll nick a win tomorrow...2-1 methinks.

COYBB

67 Posted 07/05/2022 at 14:34:09
Kieran, good luck with your 'elf. I'm not sure if watching Everton should be prescribed or proscribed.

Eddie, have to agree with Danny re Pickford. Unlikely but never say never. For me though, anyone that wants him can eff off. We are now vulture-vulnerable alas.

Jamie Crowley
68 Posted 07/05/2022 at 14:42:57
I'd think no matter what we will need to sell some players at the end of the season. Our books are a nightmare.

Richie (pray not), DCL, and Pickford all seem the most likely candidates to me.

This Leicester game is big, but I honestly don't think this one is "key". Yes, of course all games at this point are precious, but I still maintain it's Watford, Brentford and Palace. That's nine points and we need all nine of them. Three straight games to save a season and end on 41 points.

We can't worry about the others.

We have to take care of our own business and given some luck we can do this.

I never expected to get the win against Chelski and Pickford must take the kudos.

However we cannot rely on Pickford and need to get a grip of the Foxes early. They have little to play for and had a tough game on Thursday but we cannot be hopeful they will take it easy..

We have been hoping for Burnley to lose for weeks but unbelievably they keep winning since firing Dyche and look what the Barcodes have been doing since getting Howe.

Start the same 11 as last Sunday and hopefully another positive result, we need to win one of the next two away games and stop the sequence of away day losses.

Let’s get the job done!

Gary Jones
73 Posted 07/05/2022 at 16:05:13
Temping to say “same system, same players” but think the threat with Leicester comes through the middle so for me we need to pack it tight. I’d go

Pickford
Coleman Mina Holgate Mykolenko
Gordon Allan Iwobi Delph Richie
DCL

Try and hit them hard and fast when we get the ball back. Work hard, and get all 3 subs on by 70-75 mins max for tired legs.

Entire next decade could depend on the next 2 weeks. Please blues, let’s give it everything.

If Burnley lose to the Villains, which they are doing right now, I reckon we will be alright if we just win the 2 home matches. I am for playing Rondon for 60 mins in our 3 away games then bringing on Richie to run at defences in the final 30 mins. Richie starts the home games though!
Kim Vivian
75 Posted 07/05/2022 at 16:38:22
This season run in is a nightmare. Watford are probably gone and never paid so much attention to other results but bricking it every match day. However, if I was a Leeds or Burnley supporter, I'd be bricking it more.

If we can somehow bring all the points home tomorrow the whole picture looks very different. One point, whilst being very welcome, but it looks the same as now.

Good point Leciester got too much space in midfield the last time and were able to push up their defensive line in support.Really need them to be pressed back. It was only when Rondon came on the last game,they where pushed back,and not the same threat going forward.

Jay Harris
80 Posted 07/05/2022 at 17:32:58
Big incentive for us to get 3 points tomorrow after Villa doing us a big favour.

If Arsenal beat Leeds and we get the three points we will be above them both with a game in hand.

Ironically, goals and points at the moment are bringing cheers and emotions just as great as if we were winning the league or a cup. That emotion before, during and after the Chelsea game was just something else.

We need to approach every game with a do or die attitude. The home games and the away visit to Watford are by no means a given. Defend as if our lives depended on it. Chances will come and we’ve got to take them. We are not going to play any of these teams off the park with sweet football. Playing ugly will get us the points we need.
Tony Everan
85 Posted 07/05/2022 at 18:26:43
Excellent results today, big opportunity for us tomorrow to make a giant stride to safety.

Looking at the games left, I am thinking 39 points will likely do it. 40 to be guaranteed, even Southampton look like they a stuck on it with the RS and Leicester away left to play.

Not taking anything for granted, but Burnley losing and a win for us would keep the momentum going and ensuring safety.

Keep it tight at the back, be first to every ball in midfield, take our chances and come away with the points would be great.

Evening all, not sure where to post this but spend a lot of time just reading comments on ToffeeWeb. My wife says I’m a glutton for punishment…

There’s not many Evertonians to talk to down here in Luton so hence why I like reading all of you guys thoughts.

I’m obviously just round the corner from watford so although I don’t yet have a ticket for the game I thought I’d venture down on Wednesday and grab one from the touts. Would obviously much rather be in the away end though so if any of you are travelling down and know of a spare I’d love to join!

First and foremost though - 3 points tomorrow!

Really took those Supporters at Finch Farm.A very important part of the preparation.Everton after two previous reasonable performances do tend to step back.They know Leicester will be difficult, since they played them only a month ago. Frank has to build the tactics on previous performances, with particular attention to midfield.

By the way Liverpool really got away with it with that tackle_/elbow/ thuggery on Son.Interesting to see the retrospective punishment.Not holding my breath.

Just posting here to send more positive blue vibes out into the world ahead of tomorrow’s match. Being a part of the Everton community these past 5 years has been a complete joy because of the supporters, if torturous because of the results. It’s time to take our club over the finish line to keep us up. When I make my first trek to Goodison next year from the States, I expect it to be for a Premier League match. UTFT and get well, Kieran.

Will@15 No doubt that VDB will return to ManU especially with his former mentor confirmed as the next manager for a team with CR7 but was just thrashed by the mighty Brighton 4:0. I won’t be surprised that he might have already recovered but just doesn’t play as he doesn’t need to show to the next MU manager on what he can do…still, thanks for the performance vs Leeds that could be pivotal in preserving our PL status and good luck as a red devil !

Everton are not going to pay £10m for severely damaged goods.
My Leicester mate has told me his pleasant coffee two miles from the ground has been interrupted by “ half cut scouse yobs.”
Laurie Hartley
125 Posted 08/05/2022 at 12:44:22
Kevin # 110 - my understanding is that it’s £10m after he has played 20 games - £40m if he plays 80 games. I am not quite sure what happens in between - maybe pay as you go.

I believe if we end up having forked out the full 80 we will have the real Dele Alli playing for us and he will still only be 28. If it pans out that way it will have been good business.

In the meantime if he comes on and score an 80th minute winner today and helps us stay up in the run in then he will have paid for himself.

Just my take on the deal and the player.

In the meantime - Up the Blues.

Mark Taylor
126 Posted 08/05/2022 at 12:53:23
We should keep the same team, they've had a rest and at least appear to have partly discovered their mojo. DCL as a sub at best, I think he wants out and we won't get the 110% commitment we need right now.

The question is, what Leicester turns up. The tired demoralised team with their thoughts on holidays or a relaxed nothing to worry about, free playing team I fear?

We all know what we want and need but the question is, has Frank finally put some mettle in this team that we can expect a good result even if it is Leicester and on their patch.

Once again we need a big defensive performance to take the early sting that is bound to come from Vardy & Co.

If we don't concede early and albeit from stupid mistakes then we have a shot at the points but another draw wouldn't be the end of the World.

Hate being in the bottom three at this stage but let's get out today !

My son and I were there when we beat Man City 4-0, Man Utd 4-0 and were 3-0 up against Bournemouth at half time, that game in particular symbolised our players emotions, " we have done it we will win everything after this". Those fans at the Bournemouth game like most of Lower Bullens were shocked that we were suddenly at 3-2. Why, because the players lost concentration. Lose concentration, lose the ball, lose a goal or fail to score. In the last few games Iwobi and Holgate were concentrating more and playing better. However they both lost concentration once or twice in the Chelsea game but their mistakes were covered by their team mates.

Secondly, team wise against Chelsea we played as good as any of the games mentioned above but we need mobile attackers and a substitute list that can be selected for influence and affect, they are not just there a for a day out on a coach trip.
Rondon if you do play please prove me wrong, you scored twice in the cup BOTH were goalkeeper mistakes, one went through the goalies legs and one was saved but was just behind the line. It took you 8 games to score your first premiership goal this season. If you play it would be a great time to score several more.

Mr Lampard please note LFC played ALL 3 subs last night, yes you can play 3 now, changed a bit since you started in football.

Under strength but attacking 4231 433 line up from Leicester, with Perez, Daka and Iheanacho up top.

I'm hoping our reported 5221 is actually a 451, with Iwobi moving from RWB to a central role. That's a better match for the trio of Dewsbury-Hall, Tielemans and Mendy.

A good attitude and hard work will reap its results. We can win this.

Fuck sake at Leicester, Schmeichel desperately clearing his line and they go up the other end and score after our CB's get in each other's way!

Can’t understand these fuckin’ players if it’s not one there’s two or three other stupid bastards to step in and cock it up, Unbelievable and fans blame the managers.

Sounds like a few in the UK aren't able to watch this... you're missing one hell of a game.

Where are we going to get the goals to save us? Mykolenko and Holgate wouldn't have been my guesses!

Fans currently about 15 minutes into an extended version of Spirit of the Blues. By the sound through the TV, you'd think we're at home. Pretty special.

Tactically it looks good. Though the risk with 3 at the back is you get defenders on top of each other - and we've looked a bit of a shambles at times defensively. Even accounting for that, the goal we conceded was a special kind of cock up by Coleman and Mina.

The sticky tape holding Mina together gave up. Keane has been good... but with these defenders it's not how they look for 89 minutes that matters... it's the mad moment they've got in them. Let's hope we're not at home for Mr CockUp for another 45+ minutes.

We may need another. Fortunately Leicester look well capable of conceding another.

"Leicester are on the ropes. Out of Europe, nothing to play for, haven’t won in seven."
Fairly obvious then how this will pan out.

Ha! Vindicated! 😀
