The Toffees head into the fixture in sixth place on the league standings, eight points behind leaders Manchester United but having played two games less, after a 2-1 win at Wolves last time out. 
The Foxes, who like Everton have spent time at the summit this season, are on a six-game unbeaten run in the league with a third successive win (2-0 at home to Chelsea last week) having propelled them up to third, two points off top spot. 

"I don't really think about it, it's something which gets floated about and we have seen it all season," said Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers when asked if his team were contenders for the Premier League crown. 
"Tottenham a few weeks ago and Chelsea themselves, five or six weeks ago everyone was talking about them.

"The quality of Manchester City, Liverpool are the champions and Manchester United have been great.

"For Leicester to be up with the level of teams who are there makes me really happy. It's going to be a huge challenge to be up there but we are happy to take on that challenge."

Goals from Richarlison and Mason Holgate led Everton to a 2-0 win over Leicester at King Power Stadium in the current campaign. The Brazilian forward was also on target in a 2-1 win for Toffees in the corresponding fixture at Goodison Park last season.
