Everton! led by Rafa Benitez, started the season well, winning 13 of their first 18 games, but as the season progressed, the team lost its way and is now fighting to avoid relegation. Following the poor results, they decided to hire Frank Lampard , a coach seeking vengeance after failing at Chelsea. In the winter market, the team strengthened with two fundamental pieces with a lot of talent. Dele Alli, who was dropped from Tottenham’s starting lineup, and Donny Van de Beek, who did not get the minutes he deserved at Manchester United.
The team needs to start adding victories to move away from the relegation zone, and their last game ended in an unexpected victory against Manchester United, and those three points gave them a break because if they hadn’t gotten the three points, they would have been tied in eighth place with Burnley.
This season, Leicester has lost eight Premier League games away from home, including six of their past eight in the competition (1V 1E). The last time the Foxes had more than eight away losses in a season was in 2017/18. (nine).
