Winner of Monday night’s match between relegation rivals will move out of bottom three

Both Leicester City and Everton know what is on the line in Monday night’s crucial encounter at the King Power Stadium as this fixture pits two of the three teams in the relegation zone against each other.

Victory for either side would move them out of the bottom three and provide a huge confidence boost heading into the final four matches.

But how are managers Dean Smith and Sean Dyche approaching such a vital encounter?

“It’s the same as we handled the Leeds game,” explained Leicester manager Smith. “It’s a big game for both teams because of the position we’re both in in the league.

“The games are running out, obviously. This time we’ll have home advantage, and we want to use that to our advantage.

“I expect a real tough, committed performance from Everton.”
