Shakespeare wants to keep Leicester momentum ahead of Atleti clash

"We still haven't got Wes Morgan or Papy Mendy".

Since the Foxes sacked Claudio Ranieri, they have won six out of six matches. It's the same players.

What is the latest Everton team news?

Despite Leicester City's shaky season the club have impressed in the Champions League and this will be a huge night for fans.

Everton return to the comfortable confines of Goodison Park on Sunday after tough and largely fruitless trips to Anfield and Old Trafford in the last week. "They're a good side, strong at home, well organised and have a goal threat too".

The Midlanders have 36 points and will not rest on their laurels until they reach the magic 40-point mark but Fuchs confessed that, while not a lot has changed on the training pitch, there is a belief back among the players.

Thirteen of their 21 Premier League encounters have been drawn.

Everton haven't done the league double over the Foxes since 1986/87.

Cerezo, however, says it is easy to forget how much the odds were stacked against his side when they broke Real Madrid and Barcelona's nine-year stranglehold on the Spanish title in 2014 with a budget one fifth of the size of their two rivals, who have won 56 titles between them.

"I love playing at Goodison Park".

Their only defeat in 18 Premier League home games over the previous year came against Liverpool in December (W12, D5, L1).

Leicester City (10-6-14) are riding their best purple patch of the season while looking for a sixth consecutive Premier League victory - and seventh overall.

Craig Shakespeare could equal the Premier League record for winning his first six games in charge, held by Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti.

Their only away clean sheet this season came in January's goalless draw with Middlesbrough.

After having success in his home country as a coach, he returned to Atletico in January 2012 to rescue a club on its knees, reeling from an early Cup exit to third-division Albacete and sitting four points above the relegation zone.

Jamie Vardy has scored five goals in his last five league appearances. That's a win percentage of just 20%.
