Just beating them will be a big enough challenge, with the Foxes guaranteed to be top at Christmas with yet another win. Last year they were bah-humbug bottom.

For the first time this season they'll have a changed central defensive duo - not ideal when facing Romelu Lukaku, the only man stopping the table-toppers from also having the top two scorers in the Premier League in their team.

Talking of goalscorers, Leicester haven't won at Everton since 30 years ago this week - when Gary Lineker was playing.
