Leeds approached the weekend's clash at Goodison Park looking to build on Wednesday night's epic 3-3 draw at Aston Villa but goals from Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane and Anthony Gordon gave Frank Lampard victory on his first home league game as Everton boss.

Marcelo Bielsa's side failed to muster a single shot on target, although Rodrigo did crash two fine efforts against the crossbar, and James hit back at suggestions that Leeds were in a bit of trouble.
