Goals Expected when Everton Host Leeds Utd
The Toffees got off to a fantastic start away at Fulham last weekend, scoring the opening goal of the game inside the 1st-minute through Calvert-Lewen. De Cordova-Reid netted an equaliser for fulham in the 15th-minute but this only seemed to spur Everton on. Calvert-Lewen restored the visitor's lead with his 10th Premier League goal of the campaign and 10-minutes before the break Doucoure made it 3-1 with his first goal for the Toffees. Everton dropped back in the second half and allowed Fulham to attack. The hosts missed a penalty but just minutes later Loftus-Cheek scored a deflected effort to set up a nervy last 20-minutes for the away side. However, Everton held on to secure a much-needed win.
Leeds United had the home advantage against Arsenal and played most of the second half with a one-man advantage, but couldn't find a breakthrough and had to settle for a share of the spoils. After a goalless first-half, Arsenal winger Pepe was shown a straight red card for a headbutt in the 51st-minute. try as they did, Leeds couldn't score a goal and the Gunners held on to secure a point.
Everton have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six outings in the Premier League, while Leeds Utd have lost three, drawn two, and won one of their last six matches. The Toffees, therefore, head into Saturday's clash as the slight form favourites, but neither team looks full of confidence right now and it's difficult to see either side keeping a clean sheet in this one.
Head to Head Record
Leeds Utd have an excellent overall record against Everton, winning 47, drawing 28, and only losing 25 of the pair's last 100 encounters. However, Everton have won three of the duo's last five competitive meetings, all of which arrived in the Premier League. Leeds Utd beat Everton 2-1 in the League Cup in 2012 and the pair's last league match in 2004 ended in a 1-1 draw, but Leeds went on to get relegated that season.
Jean-Philippe Gbamin remains sidelined for the Toffees but is believed to be just 2 or 3 weeks away from full training. The Toffees will be hoping to see their captain Seamus Coleman back following a thigh injury, but the Irishman will face a late fitness test.
Former Everton man, Adam Forshaw, is out and teammate Diego Llorente had a relapse in training making him doubtful for Saturday's clash. Pablo Hernandez and Jamie Shackleton could both return to the first team for the trip to Merseyside.
