Well well still buzzing from last night and what a difference (even a point) makes to the table.
This will be the 120th time we will have faced the blue side of Liverpool
Everton Won 34
Leeds Won 52
with 33 Draws
In the PL the stats are
Everton Won 8
Leeds Won 8
with 11 Draws
In the PL Everton have scored 33 goals and conceded 28
Everton's biggest win, at home, against us was 7-1 in March 1937, and our biggest win at Goodison Park was 4-1 in 1991 4th round of the league cup. Our biggest victory against the toffees was a 5-2 victory in 1975 in the old League One
After last night’s high scoring 3-3 draw we have played out three 4-4 draws against the toffee's down through the years most recently the 4-4 at GP on the 24th Oct. 1999 when Michael Bridges (twice), Harry the Jew and Woodgate were all on the scoresheet and Kevin Cambell (2) Hutchison and David Wier scored their 4th in the 90th min to share the spoils. So can we expect another goal-feast on Saturday, the way this Leeds play I’m expecting more than 2.5 goals before the final whistle sounds.
Everton Football Club, based in Liverpool, holds the record for the most seasons spent in the English top flight. Since being founded in 1878, the club has won the top division title nine times.
The Toffees also have five FA Cups as well as a European Cup Winners' Cup triumph to their name.
During the 1927-1928 campaign, Dixie Dean scored a record 60 league goals for Everton as they went on to win the First Division. Everton enjoyed much success in the 60s and 80s.
In 1985, they nearly secured an incredible treble. After winning the League and the Cup Winners' Cup, they lost out in the FA Cup Final to SCUMCHESTER. In more recent years, long term manager David Moyes secured consistently high Premier League finishes without ever really challenging for the title. The Scottish man left in 2013 to take over at Old Toilet.
Home ground history:
Stanley Park - 1878
Priory Road - 1882
Anfield - 1884
Goodison Park - 1892
We are 15th in the PL table with 23 pts from 22 games, Everton are 16th in the table on 19 pts however have a game in hand on us. So regardless of results this weekend we can’t drop down any place which gives us a bit of breathing space, but with Brentford playing Palace on Saturday that result could determine if we move up a place or two.
Current Form (last 5 games)
Leeds 7 points D, L, W, W, L Scoring 10 Conceding 11 - No Cleansheet
Everton 1 point L, L, L, L, D Scoring 5 Conceding 10 - No Cleansheet
Despite these figures the probability stats for this game are
Everton Win 44%
Leeds Win 30%

To the Game Itself
Let’s start with our possible starting xi, I can’t see many changes from last night's side (depending on any possible knocks that may have been picked up), a good few went down with cramp, Llorentte, Jack, Pascal all needed attention too so hopefully they will be ok, and that Rapha who had a poor game (let’s call a spade a spade) that he will have the jet lag behind him. I thought Klich was out on his feet, and fair play to the guy he must have covered every blade of grass, so maybe Forshaw will start in midfield instead of Klich.
THE BOOKIES CALL
Paddy Power sees it as
Despite Paddy Powers obvious hatred to us Leeds Fans Bull going for 1-3
James, Jack & Joffy in the 86min to wrap things up
Eventough it’s been awhile since we kept a cleansheet (Palace at ER last November) and i would love it to see our backline & keeper keep a cleansheet we are just way too open and as i said earlier this could have 4-5 goals in it. A nil - nil is only 11/1 but the 4-4 is 200/1, Paddy obviously needs his head shaking
Ye will all have noticed in my Villa MDT i left the weather forecast information out, so im loathed to change and include one now so if you could M'Lud will you check on your weather prediction stone and inform the lads heading to game if they will need a brolly and their cashmere jacket or will a high quality pullover suffice??
Something that can be banked on
We won’t be last on MOTD either;)
An irrelevant sidenote
The reason why I didn’t mention their manager is because I don’t care about him, he means nothing to me so why should I waste time in my MDT on him.
