Leicester lost to Cardiff on Saturday after beating Manchester City and Chelsea.

Harry Maguire insists Leicester are ready to bounce back at Everton.

The Foxes go to Goodison Park on New Year's Day after Saturday's last-gasp defeat to Cardiff.

The Bluebirds claimed a 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium to stun Leicester after the Foxes' surprise wins over Chelsea and Manchester City.

Everton are a point behind the Foxes in the Premier League and Maguire is eager to put the Cardiff defeat behind him.

"That is the best thing about the Christmas period. Once you get a defeat you only have to wait two or three days before you are playing again," said the England defender.

"It's nice to have another game in three days and it's a big game for us now at Everton.

"We will look forward to that one, try to rest and recover and hopefully get the three points up there."

James Maddison's penalty was saved by Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge on Saturday before Victor Camarasa struck in the 90th minute to win it for the Bluebirds.

Defeat dropped Leicester to eighth in the Premier League as they battle for a Europa League spot.

Maguire admitted – after the exertions of beating Chelsea and City – the games have begun to catch up with the Foxes.

Tuesday's trip to Goodison will be Leicester's fourth game in 11 days.

Maguire said: "Yes, obviously it's tough for the boys who have played all three games with three 90 minutes. It is the same for every player in the Premier League. We don't use that as an excuse.

"It wasn't our best performance, no doubt about it and we are not using it as an excuse, but we dominated the game and had numerous chances.

"I can't recall them having a clear-cut chance in the game. Then they score an unbelievable goal and it's a great victory for them."

Jonny Evans and Wes Morgan will be assessed after they missed the Cardiff defeat due illness, while Hamza Choudhury is set to return having been rested.
