Pickford Was One Of Everton’s Best Players Against Leicester

After a great game at the King Power Stadium, Everton beat Leicester 1-2 with goals from Holgate and Mykolenko and a great performance from Pickord. The Liverpool side are now one point above the relegation zone thanks to their win and Leeds’ defeat by Arsenal.

Everton made the most of Leeds’ stumble as they beat Leicester to secure a second consecutive win. Frank Lampard’s side arrived at the King Power Stadium with just one win and three draws from 16 away games, including losses in their last seven matches on their travels.

But Lampard and his players were given a rousing sendoff by Everton fans outside the club’s Finch Farm training ground when they left for Leicester on Sunday morning.

Everton responded to that show of support with a dream start. Ukrainian left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko ran onto Alex Iwobi’s flick and netted with a stunning volley from the edge of the area in the sixth minute.

Everton surrendered the lead five minutes later as Yerry Mina and Seamus Coleman went up for a header, only to collide and allow Patson Daka to run through and beat Jordan Pickford.

However, Mason Holgate won it for Everton in the 30th minute, the defender converting the rebound after Kasper Schmeichel saved Richarlison’s header. Everton, hoping to avoid playing in the second tier for the first time since 1954, are one point above the relegation zone with a game in hand.
