Tip Reasoning

  • Everton have seen both teams score in eight of their last ten Premier League games.
  • Leeds have conceded 23 goals in their last eight league games, scoring 16 at the other end.
  • Everton have won just one of their last 15 league matches.

Toffees struggles continue

Frank Lampard fell to defeat in his first Premier League game in charge of Everton in midweek and with the Toffees shipping goals left, right and centre it could be another difficult afternoon for the new boss when they face Leeds on Saturday.

That 3-1 loss to Newcastle, who are now just a point behind the shock relegation candidates, made it five defeats from their last six league games and it’s a surprise to see them almost evens to get the win considering they have won just one of their last 15 top flight outings.

Whites show signs of resurrection

Leeds, by comparison, produced a stirring comeback in a thriller at Villa Park on Wednesday. They led through an early Dan James goal before conceding three times in 13 minutes to trail 3-1, but Dan James reduced the deficit before the break and a second-half Diego Llorente goal earned them a valuable point to put them four points clear of Saturday’s opponents.

It’s safe to say it hasn’t been the season Whites’ fans will have hoped for after their emphatic return to the Premier League last year, but there have been signs of a turnaround since the New Year and they have every chance of pushing on over the next few months.

Vulnerable defences to come under attack

However, like their hosts they remain vulnerable at the back. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have conceded 23 goals in their last eight league games and haven’t kept a single clean sheet in that period, although they have scored 16 times in the process.

Everton have an even longer record without a shutout, conceding in each of their last ten league gaes but scoring themselves in eight of those, so backing both teams to get on the scoresheet appeals.

James tipped to shine for Leeds

I do expect Leeds to take something from this game, too, and with both sides struggling in defence a repeat of the 2-2 draw these teams played out at Elland Road earlier in the season is a solid option in the correct score market.

Punters looking at the goalscorer markets are advised to consider Dan James. The former Manchester United winger has scored three of his four league goals this season away from home and has netted three times in his last four league appearances. He can punish the sloppy Everton back line.

Everton predicted lineup: Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Mykolenko; de Beek, Allan; Gordon, Alli, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin

Leeds predicted lineup: Meslier; Ayling, Llorente, Struijk, Dallas; Klich, Koch; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison; James

  • Both teams have scored in four of Everton’s last six Premier League home games
  • Leeds’ last four Premier League away games have all produced over 3.5 goals
