Leeds United vs Everton: Match Preview

Marcelo Bielsa and his Leeds United side will be tested at home as they prepare to welcome Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton at Elland Road. The two teams will lock horns in their Premier League clash on Wednesday evening with both teams aiming to gun for victory over each other.

The home side will be heading into this fixture beaming with confidence as they are coming on the back of a remarkable 3-1 victory over Leicester City away from home at the Kings Power Stadium. Stuart Dallas, Patrick Bamford, and Jack Harrison were among the goals as a charged Leeds side came back from behind and ensured they downed the Foxes who faltered at home.

Leeds lost their last home game against Brighton and Hove Albion by one goal to nil and will be looking to return to winning ways on home turf. If Leeds are able to secure a victory over Everton, they will be guaranteed a spot in the top half of the Premier League table while a win from Everton could see them move up to as high as fifth position.
