Leicester City and Everton open up the Premier League season against one another. For Leicester City it is a return to the Premier League, and despite facing a team with aspirations to finish at the top of the table and in the Champions League spots, Everton isn’t taking Leicester City lightly.
“We learned that Leicester are a team full of confidence, belief and have got a winning mentality that they have developed over the last two seasons which allowed them to get promotion,” Everton manager Roberto Martinez told evertontv.
“I don’t think there will be any surprises with them. We are facing a team with incredible energy and enthusiasm, and we have to match that on the day make sure we don’t get punished.
“Another aspect will be playing away from home against a newly-promoted side.
“We know we will have to be at our best and there are no easy games or places to go Premier League, and we don’t expect anything different on Saturday.”
