Jamie Vardy Salvages Draw for Leicester City in Relegation Clash Against Leeds United Ahead of Monday's Match with Everton
Leicester City and Leeds United settled for a 1-1 draw during Tuesday night’s midweek round of fixtures thanks to Jamie Vardy (79′), who scored an equalizer following Sinisterra’s 20th minute goal. After their draw at Elland Road, the Foxes [LLLWD] saw themselves drop one spot down to 18th with 29 points after 8W, 5D, and 20L losses. If they want to avoid relegation they must find something special to give them that boost they require. However, in their last four Premier League matches held on Mondays they have alternated between wins and defeats; most recently falling to Newcastle 3-0 at home in December. Now looking to avoid consecutive Premier League defeats on Monday. Leicester could become only the second Premier League side ever to secure a Premier League double against Everton after doing so in 2015-16, when they triumphed 2-0 at Goodison Park back then. Dean Smith will likely deploy a 4-2-2–3-1 formation featuring Jamie Vardy in attack for Leicester City’s relegation clash against Everton on Monday. However, Kelechi Iheanacho who played an instrumental role in creating Leicester City’s goal against Leeds may miss the rest of this season due to a groin injury.
