Everton vs LeedsEnglish Premier League, KO: 17:30 Nov 28, 2020, Goodison Park
EVERTON returned to winning ways last weekend and they will be eager to make it back-to-back Premier League successes when they entertain Leeds on Saturday evening.
The Toffees flew out of the traps by winning their opening four Premier League games, but their enterprising start to the season evaporated with a three-game losing streak.
However, the Blues battled hard to collect a much-needed three points at Craven Cottage last Sunday with a 3-2 win over Fulham.
Carlo Ancelotti will be keen to see his side rediscover the early-season momentum that carried the Toffees to the top of the table when they play host to Leeds at Goodison Park on Saturday teatime.
Marcleo Bielsa's men caught the eye during the early week's of the campaign but the Whites have picked up just one win in their last five Premier League matches.
Having said that, Leeds will consider themselves unlucky to have not edged out Arsenal at Elland Road last time out on an evening where they again demonstrated that they can mix it with the big-boys following their promotion from the Championship.
Everton have lost just two of their last 16 Premier League home matches and a Toffees triumph on Saturday is trading at even-money with Betfred,
Leeds have won two of their last three top-flight road trips but a repeat on Merseyside is an unfancied 14/5 with Unibet, while the draw is also deemed unlikely at 29/10 with the same bookmaker.
I spoke about the fact that Everton games have been goal-heavy this season on this week's edition of the Gambla Bet Builder Podcast, and I fancy that trend to continue at Goodison Park on Saturday evening.
The 4/5 (Bet 365) combination that I like the look of for this teatime tussle is over one match goal, each team to receive over zero cards and over five match corners.
The Blues have made the bulge at least twice in three of their four league games on home turf this term and each of the last eight top-flight encounters at this venue have ended with both sides getting on the scoreboard.
What's more, Carlo Ancelotti's charges are without a clean sheet in eight matches across all competitions and that does not bode well ahead of a bout with a dangerous Leeds side who have scored in all four of their Premier League away matches this season.
With an open and entertaining encounter anticipated on Saturday evening there should be no shortage of fouls, and I'm happy to back both teams to collect at least one card during this dust-up.
It's also worth noting that the above-mentioned Bet Builder has banked in four of Everton's last five fixtures and I fancy a repeat here on evening where goals could flow at Goodison.
Both teams have obliged in nine of the Toffees last 10 matches in all competitions and when digging slightly deeper it can be seen that BTTS has copped in 11 of the 14 Premier League Goodison games that Ancelotti has overseen.
However, backing both teams to strike here looks a bit too short to put up so I'll add in over two Leeds corners to boost up the price – the Whites have hit five, six and seven corners across their last three matches away from home.
