Dyche’s Everton secures huge win over Leeds
Seamus Coleman’s acute-angle goal lifted Everton to a 1-0 win over fellow Premier League relegation candidates Leeds United at Goodison Park on Saturday.
The Toffees have now won two of three under Sean Dyche, and this win over fellow relegation struggler Leeds may be more welcomed than the surprise takedown of Arsenal.
Everton rises to 16th on the table, one point clear of 18th-place West Ham United.

Leeds caretaker boss Michael Skubala will appreciate the fight he saw from his men but the quality was lacking and the table will be screaming at supporters ahead of a huge match with Southampton.
Leeds sits 19th with 19 points.
They fired American coach Jesse Marsch and drew at Manchester United before losing narrowly at home to the Red Devils a few days later in his first two games in charge.

Key storylines & in-form players to watch
Everton’s midfield trio of Amadou Onana, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Idrissa Gana Gueye will be key in this relegation scrap and so is Dominic Calvert-Lewin who was missing through injury last time out. Everton’s defense will be well-organized and set pieces are something they are clearly focused on when it comes to goalscoring opportunities.
Leeds continue to look to teenager Wilfried Gnonto for goals and inspiration, while USMNT duo Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie are doing their best to win the ball in midfield and drive the team forward. Defending properly continues to be the biggest issue for Leeds.
