The Premier League is back in action this weekend with another round of games as Everton take on Leeds United in an important fixture at Goodison Park on Saturday. Everton have exceeded expectations so far this season and hold a slight upper hand going into this game.
Leeds United’s season has not gone as expected so far and Marcelo Bielsa will have plenty of work to do ahead of this fixture. The away side does have a few defensive issues to address and will need to be careful against Everton this weekend.
Everton started the season in emphatic fashion but have fallen off the radar in recent weeks. The Toffees have a powerful attacking force but cannot afford to be complacent against a renegade Leeds United outfit.
Everton vs Leeds United Head-to-Head
Owing to their glorious history, Leeds United have an exceptional record against Everton and have won 51 games out of a total of 116 fixtures between the two sides. Everton have managed only 33 victories and will want to improve their record in this fixture over the weekend.
The previous official meeting between the two sides in 2012 resulted in a narrow 2-1 victory for Leeds United. Everton also lost a friendly against Leeds in 2015 and need to prove a point this weekend.

It continues to be an up-and-down season for Leeds so far who, following two consecutive 4-1 defeats, put in a respectable performance against Arsenal in their 0-0 draw. Similarly, Everton put an end to their dip in form with a 3-2 victory over Fulham. These are two similarly matches sides and the game has all the ingredients for a fantastic and entertaining game of football, but naming a winner for this one is tough to call. Goals are on the cards however and consider both teams to score at Goodison.
