The reverse fixture in November saw Gylfi Sigurdsson’s solitary goal secure a 1-0 win for Everton.


Leicester City head into this mid-table encounter without the services of head coach Claude Puel who was relieved of his duties by the Foxes following their humiliating 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace in front of their adoring King Power crowd.

Newcastle have suffered just one defeat from their last five played in the league while Burnley registered their second consecutive win in the division by beating title-hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Saturday.
