Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute for Leicester but Wilfred Ndidi played a sub role as he was introduced in the 70th minute.
The hosts dominated the first half but missed several opportunities to take the lead before Youri Tielemans netted the opener at the stroke of halftime.
Brendan Rodgers’ side finished up the job in the second half when Harvey Barnes doubled the lead four minutes from time.
The win lifts the Foxes up to 13th on the table – two places above the Toffees due to their superior goal difference.
