Everton sent a warning to their top-four rivals after an impressive 2-0 win at Leicester on Wednesday night.
Richarlison’s first Premier League goal for three months and Mason Holgate’s maiden top-flight strike earned the disciplined Toffees victory. Richarlison collected Alex Iwobi’s pass on the left and James Justin allowed him to drift inside too easily.
It was the Foxes’ fourth defeat in seven league games at the King Power Stadium as their home woes threaten to undermine their own legitimate top-four chances.
Leicester dominated possession, but Everton were the most composed side with their victory taking them to fifth, a point and a place behind Leicester.
The Foxes had a late penalty overturned after referee Lee Mason initially awarded a spot-kick to sum up another disappointing home outing.
Christian Fuchs, Wilfred Ndidi and Nampalys Mendy were all guilty of wasting possession for the Foxes.
