Coleman: The game against Leicester is massive

Everton right back Seamus Coleman has said that the game against Leicester in the Premier League is massive and says that his side need to use the confidence from the victory midweek in the Europa League to spur them on.

Coleman said that although they are disappointed with their league form so far this season, the toffeemen need to step up and improve to get three points against Leicester City.

“It’s a massive game,” Coleman said.

“We know our league form hasn’t been what we expected but we are looking forward to getting back in there and a win will give us some real confidence.

“Confidence will be up after the win in Switzerland and we need to get the crowd behind us.”

Speaking about the win over the Swiss team he added: “Teams have gone there in the group stages and have found it difficult so we were well prepared.

“Even when we went down to 10 men we kept the ball well and this is a good scoreline to take back to Goodison.

“We didn’t know what the pitch would be like but the gaffer had us well prepared and we’d trained down at Widnes on a couple of days in the week and we have an artificial pitch at Finch Farm.

“We didn’t train on grass once all week so it helped the lads and the surface suited us.”

Coleman is also hoping that hat-trick hero Romelu Lukaku can carry on his form from Bern and fire them to victory over Leicester.

“That is what Rom is capable of and he knows that himself and when he puts it all together he scores goals and it was great for him on Thursday night.”
