Everton travel to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, and Marco Silva could ring the changes after the Toffees’ poor run of form.

Cenk Tosun has lead the line in recent weeks, but he could be dropped by the Everton manager and replaced by Richarlison. The 22-year-old has contributed five goals in 13 Premier League appearances and is the best centre-forward option. Alex Iwobi or Bernard could replace Richarlison out wide.

Leicester have the best defensive record in the league (eight goals conceded in 13 games), so it may not be wise to start Tosun (five goals in last 37 appearances) or Dominic Calvert-Lewin (hasn’t started a league game for two months).

Everton haven’t been prolific this season, scoring just 13 goals in as many games, so they need their best attacking threat playing a central role at the King Power.

Richarlison has a 50% win ratio in his four meetings with Leicester, netting one goal for his troubles. The last time Everton travelled to face the Foxes, they came out on top and the Brazilian international opened the scoring.

Everton are underdogs to get a result this time round, however.
