STAR PREVIEW Tues: Leeds United v Everton

Leeds United suffered their first defeat of the Premier League season at the weekend, but will be keen to get back on track when they are visited by Frank Lampard’s Everton on Tuesday night.

It was a tight and edgy encounter against Brighton on Saturday which really could have gone either way, but a second-half strike from Pascal Gross proved to be the decider that ended Leeds’ unbeaten start to the campaign.

However, Marsch surely won’t allow himself or his players to get too down after that result and will still be pleased by the start his side have made to the 2022/23 Premier League season.

As ever with Leeds, there are a few players sidelined through injury. Stuart Dallas, Junior Firpo and Luke Ayling are definitely out for this one whereas Liam Cooper and Patrick Bamford will be subject to late fitness tests.

Luis Sinisterra, who has made an impressive start to the season off the bench, could be in line to make his first Premier League start.

Everton are still searching for their first win of the campaign having been denied a late equaliser in their last league outing against Brentford on Saturday.

Anthony Gordon, who has been subject to a lot of transfer speculation in recent weeks linking him with a big-money move to Chelsea, gave the Toffees the lead before Vitaly Janelt levelled the scores late on for the Bees.

Lampard is still waiting on a couple of deals to come off as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the transfer window deadline on Thursday, but did manage to recruit striker Neal Maupay over the weekend who could be brought straight into the starting line-up for this one.

The pressure is already on for Lampard and Everton, though, and, although the performances haven’t been a million miles away, things could turn sour quickly if that wait for a first win goes on too much longer.

With both sides being slightly leaky in defence, this could well be an entertaining and high-scoring match. We’re backing over 2.5 goals.
