Both Everton and Leeds are facing many difficulties at this stage. Promising they will create an interesting match when both are in dire need of victory.
Despite taking the lead, Everton still had to receive defeat on the field of Newcastle. After the victory over Brentford in the FA Cup, the new coach Frank Lampard was poured cold water. The former Chelsea manager still has a lot of work to do with his team.
Before Frank Lampard took over, Everton had a terrible run of matches. Their current form is really alarming, especially the defense is very lax. Even at home, Everton did not show much, even poor. Having the advantage of the yard but promising a not easy match is waiting for the port city team in the next round.
Leeds have not shown much this season. Not playing too badly, but they can no longer create surprises against strong teams like in the previous season. However, coach Marcelo Bielsa’s teachers and students are showing their ability to take advantage of opportunities when they encounter a medium opponent.
Away, Leeds only had to accept defeat against a strong team like Chelsea, Manchester City or Tottenham. As for the other opponents, they still showed their ability. To be fair, Leeds still has a fairly even squad compared to the common ground. If they are determined, they can absolutely return the triumphant song on the next trip.
