Prediction: Everton vs Leeds United

Prediction: Everton to win 1-0

Best Odds: 7/1


Everton and Leeds United will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match between the Toffees and the West Yorkshire club will be held at Goodison Park and is scheduled to kick off at 3pm UK time on Saturday.


Everton are one of the biggest clubs in England and have a lot of history. The Toffees have been in the Premier League since the inception and have never been relegated, but there is now a distinct possibility that they could go down to the Championship at the end of the season.

The Toffees are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 18 points from 21 matches. Everton are only a point behind 17th-placed Leeds United, who have played 22 games. Sean Dyche is now the manager of the Merseyside club, and the former Burnley manager will have to do something special to get the team out of trouble.

Everton, though, have started strongly under Dyche. The Toffees got the better of Arsenal 1-0 at Goodison Park in the Premier League last weekend. It was the Englishman’s first game in charge of the Merseyside club. It came after a 2-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham United away from home at London Stadium in the Premier League and followed a 2-1 loss to fellow relegation candidates Southampton 2-1 at Goodison Park.

Team News:

Striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin could miss the match due to injury. England international goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will start in goal for the Toffees, who are likely to line up in a 4-5-1 formation.

Leeds United

Like Everton, Leeds United are also a big and historic club in England. However, unlike Everton, Leeds have been in the Championship for years, and now there is a danger that they could get relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season again. Things are dire at Elland Road at the moment.

Leeds sacked Jesse Marsch as their manager last week. The decision came after a 1-0 defeat at the hands of fellow relegation candidates Nottingham Forest away from home at the City Ground in the Premier League. The West Yorkshire club are 17th in the Premier League table at the moment with 19 points from 22 matches, a point above third-from-bottom Everton, who have played 21 games.

The Whites will head into the match against Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the Premier League on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United at Elland Road in the league. It came after a 2-2 draw with Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Team News:

Much will depend if Leeds United are able to hire a new manager by the time the match against Everton comes along. A new boss could see tings differently. Against Manchester United this past weekend, Leeds lined up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Patrick Bamford led the lineup, while Jack Harrison played behind him as the central attacking midfielder. Forward Rodrigo is a long-term injury concern.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leeds United have scored 28 goals in 22 Premier League matches.
  • Everton have scored 16 goals in 21 Premier League matches.
  • Leeds United have conceded 38 goals in 22 Premier League games.
  • Everton have conceded 29 goals in 21 Premier League games.
  • Rodrigo Moreno has scored 10 goals in 18 Premier League matches.


Both Everton and Leeds United are desperate for points. The Premier League match at Goodison Park this coming weekend is not going to be very pretty. It will be a very competitive game of football that could be decided by a single goal. Everton will be tough to beat under Dyche, and playing at home will give them an advantage. It is likely the match will end in a narrow win for Everton.

Prediction: Everton to win 1-0

Best Odds: 7/1
