It’s a classic example of the old cliche “the clashes at the bottom of the table are just as intense as those as the top. Leicester City hosts Everton FC in a battle of two clubs that are too big of brands, at least at this point, to fail this massively.
Big money clubs, with investment backing like this, just can’t go down to the Championship. That is unacceptable. But yet, here we are. Both could likely be destined for relegation, so thus, it’s a huge match on Monday Night Football.
