Leicester City host relegation-scrapping Everton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Leicester team news

Brendan Rodgers will be without the defensive ballast Wilfred Ndidi provides in midfield for the remainder of the season as the 25-year-old recovers from surgery on a knee injury.

Ryan Bertrand also went under the knife back in February but isn't expected to play a significant role before the summer hiatus.

Everton team news

Both Andros Townsend (knee) and Nathan Patterson (ankle) have succumbed to injuries that may well have curtailed their involvement for the rest of the season. Ben Godfrey has also been struggling with a thigh problem which makes his inclusion this weekend highly unlikely.

Donny van de Beek hasn't made an appearance for his loan club since the middle of March while dealing with a spate of minor concerns. The Dutch international's latest groin injury leaves his availability in doubt - much like the fitness of fellow midfielder Andre Gomes, who has missed the last two games with what Frank Lampard described as 'a small problem'.

Everton's game-winner against Chelsea, Richarlison, went down with cramp but is expected to feature - unless he faces any punishment for tossing a flare into the Goodison Park crowd last weekend.

Leicester vs Everton score prediction

Leicester, much like most teams that have the luxury of hosting Everton, go into the game as favourites. However, Lampard's Toffees upset larger odds last weekend with a win over third-placed Chelsea - though that, of course, was at Goodison Park.

With the stench of what-could-have-been wafting around the King Power this weekend, Everton may be able to break their losing streak on the road without quite earning all three precious points.

Prediction: Leicester 0-0 Everton
