Latest Leicester v Everton odds, plus betting preview and free bets as Paddy Power report plenty of money coming in for the away win at a price of 7/5.

Leicester City start life back in the Premier League at home to a much fancied Everton side.

Nigel Pearson’s side strolled through the Championship last campaign, recording a club record tally of 102 points.

After 10 years away from the top flight, Leicester will be desperate to make their stay a longer one than the one campaign.

Everton finished fifth last season in Roberto Martinez’s first campaign in charge of the club and they will look to go one better this time around.

Champions League qualification would be a remarkable season for the Blues, who have brought well to date.

Martinez has completed the permanent signings of Romelu Lukaku and Gareth Barry, both of whom starred on loan at Goodison Park last season.

Leicester themselves brought early in the transfer window, bringing in the likes of Marc Albrighton and Matthew Upson.

The club broke their transfer record on Brighton & Hove Albion forward Leonardo Ulloa, who looks set to play a big role for the club this campaign.

Everton are unbeaten in their last nine matches against Leicester City, although seven of which were draws.

Team news

Pearson is likely to keep faith with the same back five from last season, meaning Upson will be named among Leicester’s substitutes.

Albrighton looks set to miss out, with an injury in Leicester’s most recent friendly most likely to rule him out.

David Nugent has been in excellent form in pre-season and looks set to partner new boy Ulloa up front.

Jeffrey Schlupp will be hopeful of starting from out wide, although Andy King may get the nod ahead of the Ghana international.

Everton have injury problems going into their season opener, with Seamus Coleman and Lukaku doubts.

John Stones and Steven Naismith will both start if the pair fail to recover from niggles that has disrupted their pre-season.

Aiden McGeady looks set to start ahead of Kevin Mirallas, whilst Steven Pienaar will be hopeful of a more injury free campaign.

Gareth Barry, Ross Barkley and James McCarthy will all start in a three man midfield, as Everton go out to dominate possession.

Leicester City (4-4-2): Schmeichel, de Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky, Mahrez, James, Drinkwater, King, Nugent, Ulloa

Everton (4-3-3): Howard, Stones, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Barkley, McGeady, Naismith, Pienaar
