Silva expecting a ‘tough game’ against ‘strong’ Leicester

Everton manager Marco Silva has been discussing why he expects his team to face a tough encounter when they travel to the King Power to face Leicester City tomorrow.

Silva admitted his side will be aiming to beat Claude Puel’s team, but he is wary of the Foxes speed and strength from set pieces.

“It’ll be a tough game. They’re a good side with good, fast players,” Silva told his pre-match press conference.

“They are a strong team. They score from offensive set-pieces and won their last game with two corners.

“We have analysed them. We know they are strong but in some ways we can win an advantage.

“We’ll go there to win the match.”

Everton finally got back to winning ways last weekend when they beat Fulham 3-0 at Goodison Park, although Leicester will be full of confidence themselves having won their last Premier League fixture 2-0 away to Newcastle.
