Everton v Leicester City
Everton and Leicester will be looking to bounce back from defeats last time out when they meet at Goodison Park on New Year's Day.
The festive schedule has summed up the inconsistencies of both sides this season, with Everton following up a 5-1 win at Burnley on Boxing Day with defeat to Brighton, while Leicester lost at home to Cardiff on the back of beating both Chelsea and Manchester City.
Those results have left both sides in the top half of the standings, with Everton sitting a point and two places below the Foxes.
Tuesday’s match will be Everton’s first home game since losing 6-2 to Tottenham before Christmas, although they do boast a good record against Leicester, winning three of the last four meetings, including a 2-1 victory at the King Power earlier this season.
Richarlison scored the opening goal that day and he is expected to be available on Tuesday despite picking up a knock against Brighton.
Ademola Lookman, who has missed the last three games with an ankle problem, will be assessed ahead of the match and could also feature.
Defeat to Cardiff has heaped the pressure back on Foxes boss Claude Puel, despite the fact Leicester sit eighth in the table and have only lost three of their last 11 league games.
Leicester's last win at Goodison came during their title-winning season three years ago and they head into the match with doubts over key defenders Wes Morgan and Jonny Evans, who both missed the defeat to Cardiff due to illness.
Youngster Hamza Choudhury is expected to return after being rested against the Bluebirds, but Daniel Amartey and Matty James remain unavailable.
