“There are teams that have shown very good results lately. Leicester have already won five victories in a row, if we take all the tournaments, they beat Chelsea, just before Tottenham. And in general, in the last 10 meetings, Leicester have only one defeat – just from Everton (0: 2). Now is the time to take revenge. Leicester is already in third place, – says Yegor Titov. – But on the lost Everton are on a par, and they still need to win the missed 2 meetings. In any case, the match has a tournament value. Definitely. Everton have been doing well lately too. Only one defeat in the last five meetings – unexpectedly lost at home to West Ham.
“In my opinion, the match should turn out to be very stubborn, it is unlikely that there will be many goals. The teams have been acting quite accurately lately, they miss a little. Leicester is still my favorite. I can’t believe that he will lose to Everton for the second time this season, especially since he is now on a great move, ”Titov said.
The leader of the Premier League after 19 matches is ManCity with 41 points. Manchester United have one point less. Leicester are in third place with 38 points. Everton are in 7th position, but Toffees have played 17 matches.
Liverpool’s black streak must end”

“Tottenham has a series after two defeats, in which the team alternates between draws and victories. Liverpool cannot win five games in a row. The team has already slipped into fourth place in the standings, ”says Ilya Kazakov.
“If we talk about the confrontation between these teams, then Liverpool have taken the upper hand in the last six games. Even if Jurgen Klopp’s team did not win in the last five meetings, I would suggest betting on the Reds to win. Even if Liverpool have not scored in recent matches, I think that in this game, taking into account all the circumstances, the black streak should end, – the football commentator believes. “As for Tottenham, the performance is not very good here, although Mourinho and his teammates are doing more confidently this season than one would expect.”
Liverpool, with 34 points after 19 games, are fifth in the Premier League. Tottenham have sixth position, 33 points and 18 games. Leading the ManCity tournament – 41 points after 19 meetings.
