A top team selection as the best eleven was out there and we did see a Leicester team dominant from the first kick of the ball, and again good work from James Maddison.

Everton were no treath and all attempts were stopped by a good defensive body but in the end as so many times this season a lead was given away to the opponent.

The goal in the first half was a nice one and Harvey Barnes passed it over the line behind Jordan Pickford as Everton struggles to get anything correclty, Leicester stumbled on and could have given them the knife, but instead handing chances to them in a basket.

The shambles started 15 minutes later when Kasper Schmeichel made a mistake you would not believe was possible for such a mature and experienced footballer, it was a gift handed to Newcastle and their goalscorer Guimarez that managed to hit the ball in a way that it went over the line, just not possible in real life to manage, but at St. James Park this Sunday it was possible.

Never certain about anything really with this Leicester team, but did hope that with Fofana and Evans both in the starting eleven we would be able to hold on to a lead whatever Brendan Rodgers makes of silly mistakes in his game changing as it works in the wrong direction for him at times.

At the end he makes it easier for Everton taking off the stability in midfield, the holding man in front of the four and puts in Daniel Amartey who is not used to play were Mendy play, and it all ends up in hell.

To see Leicester drop points as they have thrown away 5 points in the last two and a total of 29 points dropped after taking the lead in games in Premier League is all in all not forgivable.

Everton are at their poorest today and they looked far from a unit that would punch back in the final minutes, but so they did and grabbed a lifeline and getting at least one point against Leicester who today were better in everything.

As a fan you feel disgusted and in all fairness this was not the best of games for Brendan Rodgers who again crash the eggs as his omelette fells totally flat.

  • Positives
    • Scoring an early goal and playing well for 90 minutes
    • Maddison and Mendy were good today both players so vital
    • Hard work ethic and showing that in all Leicester are far better than Everton
  • Negatives:
    • No one takes action to keep Leicester in the game and grabbing all three points
    • Brendan Rodgers again missing in his game plan management
    • Not putting the game to bed earlier as Leicester had the chance to do that
