The Toffees will host Leicester City at Goodison Park in the final-eight of the League Cup, with the Foxes heading into next month’s fixture currently sitting in third place in the Premier League table after a fantastic start to the season with Brendan Rodgers.
Although Leicester have been one of the surprise teams of the season so far in the English top-flight, Everton fans on social media were oddly confident about taking on the 2015/16 Premier League winners, largely due to the game taking place at Goodison and not on the road at the King Power Stadium.
Here’s what Everton fans had to say about their League Cup quarter-final draw with Leicester, with the majority of supporters seemingly confident of progressing against the Foxes…
Good draw for us that. Leicester have been rotating a lot in the cup. Home draw. No excuses for the lads. How much do they want it?

Everton fans were pleased that the game will be played at Goodison, a factor that supporters believe will be a defining element of the upcoming fixture…
I’ll take that at home. Could have been a lot worse

Away we’d be out. Fancy us against most at home. Got to put it all in to go through though

Take that. Goodison, at home under the lights. Leicester won’t be thinking they are through
