Everton vs Leeds United: Match details
Match: Everton vs Leeds United
Competition: Premier League
Date: November 28, 2020
Kick-off time: 5:30 pm, November 28, 2020 (UK time)
Stadium: Goodison Park
Betting prediction: Everton 2 – 3 Leeds United
The Toffees welcome Leeds to Goodison Park in Liverpool on Saturday for this Premier League match.
This is the first league match between the two clubs since the 2003/04 Premier League season. Although, they have met more recently in the EFL Cup in 2012. The match finished 2-1 to Leeds at Elland Road. Seamus Coleman started that match at right-back for Everton.
These sides share a remarkably even record in the Premier League. Their 24 meetings have seen 7 wins apiece and 10 draws.
However, home advantage seems to play a huge role when these sides face each other. This in reflected in the fact that there has been just 1 away win from those 24 matches. Everton’s 0-1 win here in 2002 being the exception that proves the rule.
In all competitions, Leeds dominate the head-to-head with 35 wins to Everton’s 15. This is owed in large part to Don Revie’s Leeds side which routinely beat the Blues. His record against Everton as a manager stood at 13 wins and just 3 defeats.
Everton vs Leeds United: What are the betting odds?
Everton have picked up just 1 point from a possible 6 from their most recent home matches. Although, some consideration must be made for the fact they were playing Liverpool and Manchester United. This is supported by them being odds on at 19/20 to get back to winning ways at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Leeds have been more effective this season on their travels than at home. They have won 50% of their away matches compared to just 20% at home. Despite this, they start the match as the 14/5 underdogs to pick up all three points here.
The most common result when these sides have met in the Premier League era has been a draw. This makes the odds of 13/5 an attractive proposition if you see Everton and Leeds cancelling each other out on Saturday

Everton vs Leeds United: Recommended bets
101 Great Goals’ prediction of Everton 2 – 3 Leeds is available at odds of 33/1.
Everton’s last victory over Leeds was a 4-0 hammering back in 2003. A repeat of this score on Saturday is available at odds of 40/1.
Leeds’ last win at Goodison Park was way back in 1991 in the League Cup fourth round. The odds of 50/1 suggest few expect a repeat of that 1-4 scoreline on Saturday.
The last Premier League match between these sides finished in a 1-1 draw. Odds of 13/2 are available for another 1-1 draw here.
Everton vs Leeds has historically been a low scoring game with 12 of the last 17 matches ending with under 2.5 goals. You can back another low scoring game here on Saturday with odds of 13/10 for under 2.5 goals.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (above) leads the goalscoring charts this season with 10 goals in 9 appearances. This includes a brace in his last match against Fulham last weekend. The England international is the 4/1 favourite to score the game’s opener on Saturday. Or 21/20 to bag a goal at any time during the game against Leeds United.
Everton vs Leeds United: Match preview
The Blues were the early league-leaders this season, winning their first 4 matches this season. However, their subsequent 4 games without a win, starting with the Merseyside Derby, saw them drop out of the top four.
The win at the weekend against relegation battling Fulham ended a run of just 1 point out of a possible 12 for Everton. What remains to be seen is whether that win has stopped the rot, or whether it was a false dawn.
It is interesting to note the four matches they dropped points in included a match Richarlison (above) was sent-off and 3 others for which he was subsequently suspended. His return to the first team against Fulham coincided with a return to winning ways. This is probably an opportune moment to remember that correlation does not necessarily equal causation.
It cannot be denied though that he is a vital cog in Carlo Ancelotti’s system. While Dominic Calvert-Lewin earns the plaudits for his goals, Richarlison looks like the player who makes them tick.
Since signing for the club in 2018, the 8 Premier League matches he has been unavailable have produced 4 draws and 4 defeats. An average of 0.5 points per game, or a 19-point season over a full 38 games.
Regardless of how much value you put in such statistics, it is clear Everton are a far more formidable opponent when he is on the pitch.
Everton team news vs Leeds United
The big news at Everton this week is the injury to left-back Lucas Digne (above). He suffered an ankle injury in training and is expected to be out for two months if it requires surgery.
Jean-Philippe Gbamin has managed just 2 Premier League appearances since signing for Everton in a £22.5m deal in August 2019. He is nearing a return to action and is in the final part of his rehabilitation from an Achilles tendon rupture. He is expected back for the busy Christmas period.
Seamus Coleman has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. It is a recurrence of a previous injury that prevented him from being involved for Ireland during the recent international break.
Alex Iwobi had a rare start against Fulham last weekend and gave a good account of himself. He will hope he did enough to keep his place in the starting XI. Although it’s possible Digne’s injury means a switch to the opposite flank.
Leeds United team news vs Everton
Gaetano Berardi is yet to kick a ball in the Premier League for Leeds United. He suffered an Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in pre-season and is expected to only make it back for the final games this season, if at all.
Adam Forshaw hasn’t played in over a year for Leeds. Marcelo Bielsa (above) suggested in a recent press conference that a return to top-flight action could still be a fair bit away as the player would need to be eased in using reserve team action.
“With regards to his return date, we don’t want to put a return date as we don’t want to put any added pressure on his recovery. It has been more than a year since he played. I think the ideal thing for him to feel secure and have the confidence to return is that he doesn’t feel any pressure to return quicker from us or from himself so that he is able to play three, four, five games with the under-23s so he can return his competitiveness back before he can return with us.”
– Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds United Manager
Diego Llorente is yet to make his Leeds United debut since signing for the club in the summer for £18m. He has only been named in one matchday squad in the Premier League as an unused substitute against Manchester City at the start of October. The 27-year-old central defender has since suffered a groin injury which has so far ruled him out of action.
Jamie Shackleton hasn’t been named in the last two squads for Leeds due to a muscular problem picked up in training. Saturday’s match is likely too early for a return, but he could be named on the bench for the trip to Chelsea next weekend.
Pablo Hernandez has only started two matches this season for Leeds. The veteran midfielder has been in and out of the squad with a muscle injury. His last action for Leeds was playing a little over an hour of the 1-4 defeat against Leicester at the start of the month.
