Everton vs Leeds - 17:30

Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score

From a statistical standpoint, this one didn't take much digging as you can imagine, after Dominic Calvert-Lewin continued his remarkable form in front of goal to become the first Premier League player to reach double figures this season last weekend. The striker will face a Leeds defence that conceded four goals on their last trip to Merseyside and a further four in their last away match at Crystal Palace.

The Whites tend to either keep a clean sheet or the floodgates open, and given Everton's tendency to start matches strongly, scoring 11 first half goals, we think the latter seems more likely.

Patrick Bamford 3+ shots

While we're banking on Everton making a fast start this weekend, that's not to say we think this game will be one way traffic by any means. Even in the matches they have lost this season, Leeds have posed a real threat and Bamford has been far more influential than many predicted.

While it's true that sometimes the striker's finishing can let him down, his ability to pick up goalscoring chances is unquestionable and highlighted by the fact that he has attempted at least three shots in all but one of his last seven league appearances.

 

Allan to be carded

While James Rodriguez was undoubtedly the headline signing at Goodison Park, there is an argument to say that Allan's arrival was equally important in adding bite to an all too penetrable midfield last season. The Brazilian gets through a huge amount of work in the Everton engine room, breaking up play by hook or by crook.

Indeed, the Toffees star has made more tackles than any other Premier League player heading into the weekend (35) but also ranks second for fouls committed when attempting a tackle, with 15. Throw in the fact that he has three yellows in his last five outings and will face a Leeds side that will see plenty of the ball and he could be in hot water once more.

 

Both teams to score in the first half

Leading on from tip one, where we mentioned Everton's freescoring nature before the break, unfortunately for Carlo Ancelotti the goals haven't just been flowing at the right end of the pitch. The Toffees have conceded nine first half goals, while Leeds have shipped ten before the interval. In fact, both of these sides have conceded more first half goals than they have after the break, which is something of a rarity.

Morever, both teams have scored in seven of Everton's nine league games this season, and both teams have scored in the first half of all but one of said instances. Another frantic first half please!
