Top Two Predictions for Everton vs Leeds

Premier League predictions for what looks set to be a huge fixture in the seasons of both Everton and Leeds at Goodison Park. Both teams are desperate to secure 3pts this weekend but more so, they will want to avoid defeat. Both managers are looking to bounce back from defeats last time out but with both teams being very hit-and-miss of late, this could be a hard game to predict.

Draw

For our first Everton vs Leeds prediction we're backing this game to end in a stalemate. The hosts don't score many goals and will make themselves hard to break down, while Leeds have more goals in them but their defence isn't the most reliable. Two of the last three league meetings between the pair have ended all square and Everton have only won one of their last six outings in all competitions and Leeds have only won two of their last six matches, both of which were in the FA Cup against lower league opposition.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our second Everton vs Leeds prediction is in the under 2.5 goals market. Three of the last six competitive and non-competitive meetings between these two clubs have ended with under 2.5 goals being scored. Each of Everton's last three fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals while three of Leeds' last five matches have witnessed fewer than three goals scored, adding plenty of weight to our second prediction for Saturday's nig game at the bottom of the table.

*all odds provided are the best price at the time of publication and come from various bookmakers and therefore the probabilities won't always add up to 100%.

Everton are the slight favourite to win at home against Leeds but the odds really suggest that this game could go either way. If you are looking to back a First Goalscorer in this game then Ellis Simms, Neal Maupay and Patrick Bamford are all priced at 13/2 (7.50) – 13.3% as things stand.

Everton vs Leeds Lineups

Everton

Everton made the short trip to Anfield to face Liverpool looking to build upon their excellent 1-0 win over Arsenal. However, poor defending and a lack of creativity proved the Toffees undoing once again as Liverpool scored a goal in each half to secure a comfortable 2-0 win in the Merseyside derby. Townsend and Patterson have been ruled out of the Leeds game while Calvert-Lewin might not be risked either. Keane and Godfrey are both nearing their return but are unlikely to feature this weekend.

Predicted Lineup: Pickford (GK), Coleman, Tarkowski, Coady, Mykolenko, Gueye, Doucouré, Onana, Iwobi, Simms & McNeil

Leeds

After securing a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, Leeds welcomed Man Utd to Elland Road last time out but it proved to be a very different result. Leeds failed to score against the Red Devils and two late goals from Rashford and Gamacho secured the visitors a 2-0 victory in the end. Rodrigo, Gray, Forshaw and Dallas remain sidelined this weekend but Leeds hope to see Cooper, Roca, Struijk and Sinisterra make their return to action.

Predicted Lineup: Meslier (GK), Ayling, Koch, Firpo, Wöber, Adams, Harrison, McKennie, Bamford, Summerville & Gnonto

Player to Watch: Alex Iwobi

Everton's chief playmaker made a great start to the season but his form has dropped off in recent weeks.

Since moving to a more central position, Iwobi has proven to be a much better player, getting on the ball and making things happen in the final third and how Everton could use one of the Nigerian's top performances this weekend.

Everton lack goals and creativity this season and it is up to Dyche to get the best out of what he has, which isn't very much, but in Iwobi the former Burnley boss has a player that can change games when in form and is full of confidence. If Everton are to get anything out of Saturday's clash with Leeds then we believe Iwobi will have made an impact on the game.
