After a hard-fought draw with Aston Villa, Leeds United will be aiming to get back to winning ways when they take on Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday. It is a must-win affair for Marcelo Bielsa’s men, who have collected only one point in their last two matches. Another mishap could see them once again getting wrapped into the relegation scrap.

Everton, in particular, are breathing down the necks of Leeds United. They are behind the Whites in the league table, and a point could potentially help them bridge the gap to just one point. However, the Toffees were hammered 3-1 by Newcastle United in midweek and are yet to collect a single win in the Premier League this year.

Talking Tactics

Everton

Everton’s new boss Frank Lampard deployed a 3-4-3 formation in his first Premier League game in charge of the Merseyside giants. He is likely to stick to a similar setup, with emphasis on attacking the opposition and dominating the proceedings. At the same time, the hosts will be cautious of Leeds’ high-press which could lead to many turnovers.

Leeds United

Leeds United coach Marcelo Bielsa deployed a 4-2-3-1 formation, but with Adam Forshaw back in contention, he could opt for a 4-1-4-1 with Robin Koch acting as the holding midfielder. It will offer Leeds the numerical superiority in the second line of press, as they look to make use of Everton’s vulnerable backline.

Team News

Everton

Everton were handed a fresh injury blow as Yerry Mina picked up a knock on Tuesday. The Colombian joins Fabian Delph, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Ben Godfrey and potentially, Demarai Gray in the club’s list of absentees. We also expect Lampard to ring in the changes, with both new signings, Donny van de Beek and Dele Alli gunning for a start.

Leeds United

Leeds United are also missing some key players heading into this contest including Patrick Bamford and Kalvin Phillips. New signing Junior Firpo and club captain Liam Copper remain out as well, though Adam Forshaw has returned to full fitness and is poised to start this weekend.

Predicted Lineups

Everton: Pickford; Branthwaite, Holgate, Keane; Patterson, Allan, van de Beek, Mykolenko; Alli, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison

Leeds United: Meslier; Ayling, Llorente, Struijk, Dallas; Koch; Raphinha, Klich, Forshaw, Harrison; James
