Confirmed Everton v Leicester lineups: Kone starts, Mirallas on the bench

Everton Goodison 3

Everton hose Leicester City in the Premier League today - here is how the teams line up.

Everton are looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven games as they host Leicester City today.

Roberto Martinez's side have won two and drawn four of their last six games, having drawn 1-1 at Norwich City last weekend despite taking the lead and dominating.

The Toffees need to be more clinical in front of goal, and fans were keen to see Arouna Kone dropped from the line up in favour of winger Kevin Mirallas.

Those supporters may be disappointed to see that Kone keeps his place and Mirallas is on the bench once again, whilst Tom Cleverley continues in midfield with James McCarthy still out injured.

Meanwhile, Leicester continue to stun the world by sitting top of the Premier League table after their 2-1 win over Chelsea on Monday night.

The Foxes have enjoyed a sensational season so far, and with just one defeat to their name, Claudio Ranieri's men are flying.

The Italian can once again call upon star duo Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, but he has made three changes to his side.

Suspended defender Robert Huth has been replaced by Marcin Wasilewski, whilst Andy King comes in to midfield for the injured Danny Drinkwater.

Striker Leonardo Ulloa is dropped to the bench in favour of Shinji Okazaki, with Ranieri naming Gokhan Inler, Andrej Kramaric and Nathan Dyer on the bench this afternoon.
