  • Carragher believes Everton’s performance will worry their relegation rivals 

Jamie Carragher believes that Everton will avoid relegation from the Premier League following their 2-2 draw against fellow strugglers Leicester.

Sean Dyche’s side remain in the relegation zone and and are one point adrift of safety but produced an impressive display at the King Power Stadium.

Carragher stated his belief that Everton’s performance will cause concern for their relegation rivals Leeds and Nottingham Forest. 

Everton took the lead through a penalty from Dominic Calvert-Lewin before goals from Caglar Soyuncu and Jamie Vardy put Leicester in the ascendancy.

James Maddison then missed a penalty for Leicester with Alex Iwobi later pulling Everton level.

Carragher says that Everton’s performance will strike fear into their relegation rivals

Speaking on Sky Sports, Carragher said: “It feels like a better point for Everton. They were by far the better team.

“I actually think Everton’s performance will worry Leeds and Nottingham Forest.

“If Everton can continue performing like that, they will get out of trouble.”

Carragher: ‘It is a big point for Everton, but the performance was outstanding. Leicester had that chance but that performance, you see the crowd, the reaction. You felt like if a team was going to get the winner it would be Everton.’

Everton have four games remaining as they look to preserve their Premier League status.

Firstly they will travel to face Brighton & Hove Albion prior to a home game against Manchester CIty.

They then play Wolves away and conclude the campaign with a home game against Bournemouth. 

Carragher admitted that Everton’s away form is a major concern but still feels that they will stay up, especially when Leeds’ struggles are taken into consideration. 

Asked why he is confident Everton will survive, Carragher said: ‘The actual performance more than anything. I think if you were watching that as a Forest or Leeds player or supporter you’d be worried. 

‘The big thing for Everton is they’ve got two more away games out of the next three and they’ve won one away game all season. That’s a huge problem. The one home game is against Man City. I’ve never felt Everton would go down at any stage really.’

‘I just look at the form that Leeds are in.’
