The Toffees had a fantastic start to the season, winning their first five games in a row to briefly top the Premier League table. A winless run, however, quickly stalled those momentum and suffered three straight defeats before easing the darkness against Fulham last week. Carlo Ancelotti’s side remain in the top six, just five points behind leaders Liverpool, with one game in hand.
Leeds have been an exciting addition to the Premier League but haven’t always secured the points to reward their great performances under Marcelo Bielsa. They have only won one of their last five games, despite the misfortune of not beating Arsenal the last time, and they have usually raised their level when they faced the toughest opponents of the top division. Follow the action live below at the end of Man City v Burnley:
Close! This is a very quick start from Leeds. Harrison and Klich bond well, and the latter plays a pass to Bamford. His low shot only distracts a lot, but the flag is still offside.
Early chance! Bamford pushes the ball in the way of Raphinha, who races clear on goal. Pickford rushes out and the Leeds man tries to knock the ball past him. Holgate is cleaning up again.
An emotional Ancelotti watches as everyone at Goodison Park honors Diego Maradona with a minute of applause. The players kneel down and Leeds gets us on our way.
The players are at Goodison Park. Almost time for the third game of the day …

Everton are making some changes to their starting XI, with Mason Holgate and Tom Davies replacing Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne. The latter could be absent for up to three months due to an ankle injury.
Everton are starting this game to build on their 3-2 win over Fulham last weekend. This ended a series of three defeats in a row, which had shortened an impressive start to the season.
For Leeds, the intent is to move further away from the bottom three. Lately, Bielsa has had a tough time scoring points despite battling for a goalless draw with Arsenal last time around.
It’s Everton versus Leeds at Goodison Park. This is what the managers have to say:
Carlo Ancelotti: « I’m happy to meet him [Bielsa], he does a fantastic job. I like his style of play, he likes football with a lot of intensity, so we’re going to expect a game with a lot of intensity. We want to try to win, it’s an important game because we can climb onto the table with a win. «
Marcelo Bielsa: « We lacked regularity. We had some good games and some bad and that was the most important thing at that moment. «
