Raphinha has scored in all three of his Premier League appearances for Leeds United against Everton, producing the winner in this exact fixture last term. The last Leeds player to score in four consecutive Premier League appearances against an opponent was Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink versus Arsenal (between 1997 and 1999).
Everton have lost just one of their last eight Premier League meetings with Leeds (W4 D3), though that defeat did come in the corresponding fixture last season.
This will be Frank Lampard’s first home league match in charge of Everton – he failed to win his first home contests in charge of previous clubs Derby County and Chelsea (D1 L1), with his first home match in charge of Derby a 4-1 defeat to Leeds in August 2018, in what was Marcelo Bielsa’s first away match in charge.
Only Newcastle United (21) and Southampton (20) have dropped more points from winning positions in the Premier League than Leeds this season (17). The Whites had lost fewer such points than any other side in the competition last season (six).
