Leeds United vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: Saturday 21st August 2021
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Elland Road.
Will Leeds ever learn? Last season when they played Manchester United away from home they lost 6-2 and on the opening day of the season the same fixture finished 5-1. Leeds play to open, when it works the team click so well but when it doesn’t they concede many goals.
Leeds really need to bounce back for this game because a loss here and they might start feeling sorry for themselves at the bottom of the table.
The Everton fans are not sure to have an former Liverpool manager in charge of the club in Rafa Benitez but they got off to a great start as they beat Southampton 3-1.
Everton were losing the game 1-0 but came back well and that will install some confidence in the team as they head into this tricky away fixture. A victory would see Everton move into the top 4 also so that would also be an early season bonus.
Leeds United vs Everton: Head to Head
- Last season in this fixture Everton won 2-1.
- Both teams have scored in 3 out of the last four games.
- The last time the teams drew 0-0 was back in 2002.
Leeds United vs Everton: Prediction
Leeds need to start the game quick and try to erase the loss at Manchester United but the club are up against a decent team and Everton will believe that they will be able to cause the home side plenty of problems.
Everton may struggle at times this season but coming back against Southampton will have given the club an extra lift and we think they can walk away with all the points.
Back Dominic Calvert-Lewin to get on the score sheet for Everton the striker scored 16 goals last season and will be hungry for more goals in this campaign.
