LU vs EVE Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Leeds United vs Everton EPL Fixtures 21 August


The Premier League moves onto the second week as Liverpool host Burnley in the early kickoff. Leeds United will welcome Everton to Elland Road. The Whites received a 5-1 mauling at the hands of Manchester United last weekend. After Luke Ayling had canceled out Bruno Fernandes’ opener, the Red Devils struck four more times.

LU vs EVE Dream11:

Everton made a bright start to life under new manager Rafa Benitez. They defeated Southampton 3-1. After trailing to an Adam Armstrong goal, the Toffees struck thrice with goals from Richarlison, Doucoure, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. A few more wins like that, and fans will forget about the controversial Benitez appointment.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Richarlison impressed in the last game after he was shifted to a central position in the last game. A similar setup should be locked in from the start against Leeds. He scored a goal and supplied an assist last time.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the danger man as far as Leeds is concerned. Everton is playing to his strengths with a lot of crosses for him to head in. The England forward had 16 goals and six assists last season, and he also opened his account in the last game.

Differential Pick

Our differential pick for this game is Raphinha. The Brazilian creates a host of chances for his teammates. He was unlucky in the last game not to have returned any points. He had six goals and ten assists last season.

LU vs EVE Dream11 Teams

Goalkeeper – I Meslier
Defenders – L Digne, M Keane, S Coleman, J Firpo
Midfielders – S Dallas, A Doucoure, Raphinha

Forwards – Richarlison Andrade, D Calvert-Lewin, P Bamford

Likely Winner:
We have an exciting game on our hands. Both teams love to attack and leave a lot of space behind. The game should see 3+ goals. The LU vs EVE Today Match Prediction odds are in favor of a narrow win for Everton.
