Leeds United will welcome back a rowdy crowd at Elland Road when they host Everton on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites will be looking to put their 5-1 thrashing by the hands of Manchester United behind them, with Marcelo Bielsa visibly furious with his players after the game.

The Toffees, meanwhile, started life under Rafael Benitez with an impressive 3-1 victory over Southampton at Goodison Park.

It will be the first time that Bielsa and Benitez - two of the finest coaches of their generation - cross swords in English football for the first time, but who will come out on top?


Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Leeds United vs Everton to get your teeth stuck into. 

Leeds United vs Everton betting tips & predictions

Leeds United are 6/5 to win, with Everton priced at 2/1 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 13/5.

Prediction: 1-2 (9/1)

Match result: Everton (2/1)

Following their abysmal display away at Old Trafford, Leeds will hope that they can convert their home advantage into a vital three points.

Everton played some exciting football in the second half of their season opener against Southampton and, although this may be a cagey affair, we're backing the Toffees to come out on top like they did last season.

Under/Over Goals: Under 2.5 (6/5)

Fixtures between these two sides in the Premier League are often low-scoring games, with five of the last seven matches between them seeing under 2.5 goals scored.

Despite Leeds looking vulnerable defensively against the Red Devils, Bielsa's men are a different breed at home and should have a much tighter back line going into this afternoon's game.

First Goalscorer: Patrick Bamford (4/1)

Patrick Bamford had a rough time in terms of chances last weekend, however, after signing a new five-year contract on Friday, it may just give him a new lease of life in front of goal.

The 27-year-old was the Premier League's fourth highest goalscorer last term - 17 goals in total - and we're backing him to get off the mark here at attractive odds of 4/1.

Leeds United team news

In a big blow for Bielsa's side, defensive stalwart Diego Llorente will be unavailable until the end of the month.

Meanwhile, Kalvin Phillips, who excelled for England during this summer's European Championships, is expected to start the game after Robin Koch failed to impress against Manchester United.


Everton team news

James Rodriguez and Ben Godfrey missed the season opener due to coronavirus and are a doubt for this game, too.

Other doubts include Andre Gomes and Jean-Phillipe Gbamin, while Jarrad Branthwaite is set to miss out due to injury.
