Leeds vs Everton: Predictions
Leeds stunned the high-flying Leicester City on the weekend in an emphatic 3-1 victory over the Foxes. Marcelo Bielsa’s men battled back from an early Harvey Barnes goal to earn all three points. Second-half goals from Patrick Bamford and Jack Harrison sealed the victory as United pulled just two points behind 10th-placed Arsenal and with a game in hand.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side were on the end of a surprise defeat in Saturday’s early kick-off as Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United took all three points and a clean sheet back to Tyneside. A brace from Callum Wilson put a dent in Everton’s quest to secure European football for next season, however, Wednesday’s game offers the Toffees a chance to get back on track.
United’s target man Bamford has surprised most this season after his goal on the weekend took his tally for the season up to 11 league goals. The Englishman has now scored as many as Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin who has found himself in a seven-game league drought.
It was the Yorkshire side which took all three points in the previous meeting between these two sides in a 1-0 win back in November. Raphinha’s late strike clinched the win for Bielsa’s side in what was a dominant showing from the visiting side.

Leeds vs Everton: Match Stats
No player recorded more tackles than Lucas Digne in their 2-0 defeat to Newcastle on Saturday. The left-back recorded eight tackles – five more than any other player. Digne could have another busy game against Leeds with their attack-first philosophy under Bielsa.
Calvert-Lewin and Bamford have both impressed this season, however, they are both in stark contrast levels of form. The Everton talisman has not netted since early December, but he will see this as an opportunity to end his drought against a defence who have conceded the third most goals this season (36).
