Frank Lampard celebrated his first Premier League win as Everton manager with a dominant 3-0 victory over Leeds United.
Everton were rewarded for their bright start when Seamus Coleman headed them into the lead with his first goal since May 2019.
Michael Keane doubled the Toffees’ advantage on 23 minutes, powering in a header from Anthony Gordon’s corner.
Leeds’ hopes of a comeback rested with Rodrigo, who struck the crossbar twice in the first half with two superb shots.
Everton added a third in the 78th minute when Richarlison’s shot took a deflection off Gordon and went in.
Everton are 16th on 22 points, five clear of the relegation zone, while Leeds are a place and point above them, having played a match more.
