The story of Leicester City this season has given every football fan hope to dream beyond their wildest. The story of Everton this season has taken away nearly all hope from every Evertonian. Saturday evening's fixture is a dead rubber because both team's season has finished, for very different reasons.

Toffees skipper Phil Jagielka looks to have sacrificed the rest of the season by playing through the pain at Wembley against Manchester United a few weeks ago and it appears that his hamstring injury will keep him out the final three games. Gerard Deulofeu's season also looks to be over after suffering a MCL knee ligament injury reportedly following a clash with Oumar Niasse in training - just to add to the Senegalese's first impressions on Blues fans. Both Seamus Coleman and Gareth Barry are being described as very doubtful through hamstring and groin injuries, respectively. Ramiro Funes Mori will serve the final match of his three-game suspension after his red card versus Liverpool and Matthew Pennington is expected to keep his place at centre-half after an impressive Premier League debut against AFC Bournemouth.

Other than a few sore heads after a deserved drink or two, newly crowned Premier League champions Leicester have no injuries for Saturday's clash. However Danny Drinkwater is suspended after his red card at Old Trafford last week and Robert Huth has been retrospectively reprimanded following his involvement in the incident with Marouane Fellaini and both will miss the game but star striker Jamie Vardy will return after serving his suspension for the red card he received against West Ham United.
