On November 28, Everton will take on Leeds United in an important fixture of the day in order to find out who – the Toffees or the Peacocks – are worthy to be among the top five?
While top clubs tried to overcome their internal crises, Carlo Ancelotti’s team benefited from their struggles and situation in general, having climbed to the top of the standings. Later, things turned back to normal. Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham finally became mature enough to displace the Toffees from the top.
Everton won their most recent match against Fulham. However, prior to that, Ancelotti’s side had suffered a series of successive failures. Thus, Everton had lost to Manchester United (1-3), Newcastle (2-1) and Southampton (2-0). The Toffees now need to work hard in order to regain their positions.
The Whites boldly started their debut season in the Premier League. Leeds didn’t have any loud victories, except for the one over Aston Villa on a visit (0-3), which made them the first team that could gain points from the Lions. Also, Marcelo Bielsa’s side managed to draw some games to everyone’s surprise. For example, the game against Arsenal ended in a scoreless draw.
It seems like Leeds are not ready to fight for the top positions yet. Nevertheless, we suppose it is too early to make any conclusions. Let’s wait and see how the Saturday game will end.
The upcoming match is important for both clubs. One quarter of the championship is over, and in order to improve their positions in the standings, the Toffees and the Whites need more than a draw. The odds on a draw – 3.9.
Leeds, as visitors, are given higher odds of 3.6 on their victory. However, just keep in mind that they know how to play on a visit. Their game against Aston Villa serves as another proof to that.
All in all, it is going to be an interesting confrontation of two average clubs that are trying to get higher in the standings.
