When: Tuesday 30 August 2022, Kick-off 20:00
Where: Elland Road
On Tuesday night, Leeds and Everton go head-to-head at Elland Road in the Premier League, as the visitors look for their first league win of the season.
The Whites have enjoyed a solid start to the new Premier League campaign after losing some key players earlier in the summer transfer window. Jesse Marsch’s team has taken seven points from their opening four league outings.
A 1-0 defeat at in-form Brighton last time out ended the Whites’ six-game unbeaten run in all competitions dating back to last season.
Leeds are also unbeaten in their last three home matches in the English top-flight, having recorded back-to-back home wins in the Premier League. Spanish forward Rodrigo has scored in the team’s last two league matches in the English top-flight.
The Spain international’s goals have contributed to there being over 2.5 goals in eight of Leeds’ last ten home matches in the Premier League.
The team from Yorkshire are still without Stuart Dallas through injury, while Liam Cooper, Luke Ayling, Junior Firpo and Patrick Bamford are fitness doubts.
The Toffees have picked up just two points from their opening four league games of the season. Their only win of the campaign so far was a 1-0 win at Fleetwood Town in the Carabao Cup second round.
Last time out, Frank Lampard’s team drew 1-1 at Brentford. The Toffees were ahead until the 85th minute when Vitaly Janelt equalised for the Bees to deny the visitors what would have been a harsh result on the home team.
The draw means that Everton has won just two of their previous eight matches in the English top flight. It also means that the Toffees have failed to win in their last five matches in the Premier League.
The men from Merseyside have struggled for results on their travels, winning just one of their last 19 away games in the Premier League. They have also lost nine of their previous 12 top-flight games away from home.
The Toffees have some major injury problems. Yerry Mina, Ben Godfrey, Mason Holgate, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Abdoulaye Doucoure will all miss out through injury. The Toffees have added French striker Neal Maupay to their attacking armoury. The former Brighton star could make his debut in this clash.
Leeds have coped better than Everton with rebuilding their squad after key summer exits. The Whites look like they could have a far more successful campaign than last season.
Everton have not looked great this season. However, with several new players signing during the summer, there was always going to be a period of settling into the team for the new arrivals. There have been signs that Lampard’s team could be improving.
The Toffees are unbeaten in three matches against Leeds, recording two wins in the process. We believe this will be a close game, likely ending in a draw. The other bet we are backing is under 2.5 goals scored. The visitors have improved in defence this season but are struggling for goals. Leeds are a dynamic attacking team, but Everton may be strong enough to dispel the home threat.
Our Tips: We are backing the draw at odds of 5/2 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at evens. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
