Prediction, preview and team news for Leeds United vs Everton more | Premier League 2021-22

Leeds United will be looking to put their 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester United behind them as they take on Everton at Elland Road on Saturday.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men were played out of the park by Manchester United in their season opener last week. After Bruno Fernandes’ lead, Leeds United was restored to parity by Luke Ayling’s 25-yarder.

Manchester United swept past four of their bitter rivals in an 20-minute blitzkrieg to win the opening day. In Kavin Phillips’ absence, the Leeds United midfield looked out of sorts and they wouldn’t want a repeat of the same when they take on Everton.

The Toffees, on the other hand, got off to a great start to the 2021-22 Premier League season as they registered a 3-1 win against Southampton. After a Michael Keane defensive error, Saints debutant Adam Armstrong took the lead.

Richarlison and Abdoulaye Doucoure fought back for Everton in the second period. Rafael Benitez needs more victories like this to win over fans that have been split over his appointment.
