'There are usually goals' - Exclusive: Campbell makes Everton v Leeds prediction
We’re delighted to welcome former Everton striker Kevin Campbell as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Goodison Park…
Kevin Campbell believes Everton will claim a win against Leeds United this weekend as the former Toffees striker predicted a ‘very good game’.
Campbell has predicted a 2-1 win for Everton as his former side look to follow up their win last weekend with another three-point haul.
He also believes that a certain trio of Toffees attackers could be the difference when Carlo Ancelotti’s side meet an impressive Leeds on Saturday.
Speaking to Goodison News, Campbell said, “It’s going to be a very good game. I’ve been involved in quite a few battles with Leeds, one of them was with Everton.
“There are usually goals in this game funnily enough. I think Leeds can’t get unlucky again like they were against Arsenal so I think they’ll score.

“But I think having Richarlison back, Calvert-Lewin on fire and James Rodriguez pulling all the strings it’s a game Everton can win and I think Everton will win the game 2-1.”
Everton will certainly face a tougher task than they faced last weekend when they welcome Marcelo Bielsa’s side to Goodison Park.
Leeds have been impressive since their return to the top flight and have taken points off Manchester City and Arsenal so far this season.
The Toffees looked back to their best against Fulham last weekend as Richarlison’s return to the side helped Everton score three first-half goals in the 3-2 win.
The Brazilian could be the key man again this weekend as Ancelotti tries to get his side performing as they were at the start of the season.
The Toffees set the pace in the early stages of this Premier League season and fans will be wanting to see their side challenging for a top-four place, a win against Leeds would certainly restore some confidence among the fan base.
In other Everton news, a Toffees youth player is reportedly wanted by some of Europe’s top clubs.
