Commentary

Leeds face a tricky trip to Chelsea next while Everton travel to Burnley. Ancelotti has got to get his side going again. Tightening up their flimsy defence seems the place to start. That's all for now. Goodbye!
Leeds' win lifts them to 11th in the Premier League table, only a few points off the European places in a congested midtable. Everton stay sixth, although a lot of teams below them have yet to play this weekend. Tha's four defeats in five league games for Everton now. They still seem doomed to flatter to deceive.
Leeds claim their first league win at Goodison Park since August 1990! Raphinha's wonderful goal gives Bielsa's team a deserved victory, although it probably shouldn't have taken as long as it did. Leeds should have scored at least one more than Everton in a crazy first half and stayed focused in the second. Everton had their chances too but wilted once they finally went behind. The game had 38 shots.
90' + 3' FULL-TIME: EVERTON 0-1 LEEDS UNITED
90' + 3' Pickford makes one more save to deny Costa! Poveda-Campo's cross from the right finds Rodrigo who pokes wide from the centre of the box. It rolls to Costa in the six-yard box but Pickford comes across to stop it! The England goalkeeper's done well here. For all the criticism he's had recently, Everton would have conceded more goals without him in this game.
Allan
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Allan is next to see a yellow card for a raking tackle on Phillips that leaves Phillips down on the turf for a while. Everton's threat has faded now.
Rodrigo
P. Bamford
90' + 1' Leeds make another change to wind down the clock. Bamford heads off looking slightly frustrated. He knows he should have scored at least once in this game. Rodrigo is on for him.
90' + 1' Bamford finds himself free in the box and raises his hand to get the attention of Costa. Costa swings a cross towards him from the left but Pickford anticipates it well and comes out to grab it.
L. Cooper
Yellow Card
90' Leeds' captain Cooper receives a yellow card for a poor challenge on Richarlison. There will be three more minutes of this.
Hélder Costa
J. Harrison
89' Leeds substitution. Costa comes on for Harrison.
87' Leeds win a corner down their right off Delph. It doesn't lead to anything though. Everton go hunting for an equaliser through Rodriguez who gets pickpocketed. Leeds counter and Alioski is through on goal but skims wide! The North Macedonian is probably relieved to see the offside flag go up anyway. 
I. Poveda-Ocampo
Raphinha
85' The goalscorer Raphinha goes off. The Brazilian might have secured a big three points for Leeds. Poveda-Ocampo replaces him for the final 10 minutes
84' Bernard gets his first touches on the ball but Everton can't create a chance of note. Leeds are wisely dropping back slightly more now.
Bernard
M. Holgate
82' Well, here's how Everton will reply to going behind. Bernard comes on for Holgate - it's a very attacking change.
81' Raphinha's goal is his first in the Premier League with the 35th attempt of this game. Something tells us there will be a few more before the 90 minutes are up.
J. Harrison
Assist
79' That goal came after some nice Leeds build-up play down the right with Harrison getting the final touch before Raphinha scored. How will Everton respond now? They're lucky to have just conceded the one goal, to be honest.
Raphinha
Goal
79' GOAL! EVERTON 0-1 LEEDS UNITED! Raphinha finally gives this wild game a goal! Raphinha receives the ball on the edge of the box and lets fly for the bottom right corner. Pickford dives towards it but can't keep it out!
76' Richarlison blows another half-chance to break the deadlock. Rodriguez taps a pass wide to his Brazilian teammate who balloons wide of the left-hand post.
74' Rodriguez swings in the free-kick. Allan picks it up outside the box and misses wide to the right.
73' Calvert-Lewin races onto a throughball and waits for support, finding Doucoure on the opposide side. Everton earn a free-kick down their left off Bamford.
72' There have been 31 shots so far. The record for a Premier League 0-0 since 2003-04 is 50 when Manchester United and Sunderland blanked in April 2006. This game might not quite reach those heights, but it could come close.
70' Leeds look like they've still got plenty in the tank. Ayling fires a direct pass forward but Delph is there to intercept.
68' It looks like Everton have changed to a back four now. Rodriguez fires a dipping shot towards goal from distance and Meslier spills it, gathering it at the second attempt with Calvert-Lewin lurking.
André Gomes
A. Iwobi
67' Everton make another substitution. Iwobi makes way for Gomes.
65' Now Leeds face the wrath of the offside flag! That's three goals ruled out for offside now. Alioski's cross from the byline reaches Raphinha. Raphinha lays off to Bamford who tucks the ball under Pickford but Alioski was offside in the build-up.
63' Leeds make progress down their left, winning a throw-in. Phillips looks to be crowded out but makes the most of it, getting into the box and having a shot blocked. Raphinha swivels on the spot to fizz wide.
62' Everton's corner doesn't come to much. Leeds win a free-kick as Richarlison bundles over Harrison. Ayling floats a cross towards the far post for his counterpart Alioski who can't keep the ball in play.
F. Delph
T. Davies
61' Delph enters the fray for Davies. It looks like Delph will slot in at left wing-back for Everton.
60' Allan gets impatient at this lack of goals and decides to go it alone, dribbling from his own half into Leeds' box and forcing a save from Meslier. Everton have a corner but they'll make a substitution first.
58' Everton are preparing a change down on the touchline. Meanwhile, Leeds get another shot on target as Harrison plays a one-two with Bamford and forces Pickford into a low stop at the right-hand post.
56' In their first four Premier League games this season, Leeds had 45 shots, scoring nine goals for a conversion rate of 20%. In their last five league games prior to this one, they had 85 shots but scored just five goals, a 6% conversion rate. Leeds don't struggle to create chances. They could just score far more than they do.
54' Dallas angles a pass out wide to Ayling who holds the play up. Leeds' attack doesn't work out though and now it's Everton's turn to go forward. Rodriguez finds Richarlison down the left. The Brazilian cuts onto his right foot and rolls a tame shot straight at Meslier.
52' It's like these teams want to concede a goal at this point. Meslier makes a hash of a pass out from the back, presenting it straight to Rodriguez. Rodriguez goes for the chip with his left foot but Meslier backtracks quickly enough to catch it on the goalline.
51' Keane's pass out from the back is sloppy and Leeds capitalise on it, finding Bamford instantly. Bamford shoots straight away but can't keep his effort down.
51' Pickford races out of his box to clear a hopeful ball forward for Leeds. Everton get a free-kick as Allan is fouled.
49' Phillips pings a fantastic ball wide down the right for Raphinha who kills it first-time. Leeds work it nicely into a more central position with a few passing triangles. Klich leans back and blazes over from distance.
47' Now it's Everton who are threatening on the counter! Calvert-Lewin gets sets free down the centre this time, dragging his shot just wide of the right-hand post.
46' Calvert-Lewin picks the game up where it left off, darting down the right and smashing a shot at Meslier from the edge of the box. Meslier palms it away at his near post. Everton get a corner which Leeds deal with comfortably.
46' Everton get the second half going. No changes at half-time.
There were 20 shots in that first half, the most there's been in the opening 45 minutes of a Premier League game this season. Leeds were responsible for 13 of those, the joint most any PL side has had in a first half this campaign. Bielsa's team could be way in front by now if they weren't so wasteful. More of the same from both teams please!
It's a miracle that this game is still goalless. Both Everton and Leeds - especially Leeds - have had opportunities to take the lead only to be denied by great goalkeeping, wayward finishing, and a few disallowed goals. This is by no means a boring 0-0 so far. Don't bet against the floodgates opening in the second half.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: EVERTON 0-0 LEEDS UNITED
45' + 2' Leeds pepper Everton's goal a bit more before half-time. Ayling's ambitious effort from deep is off-target and Klich fires just wide from outside the box. That's all for now!
45' Harrison hits the post! Dallas crosses in from the left and Harrison hits the right-hand upright with a header. It rebounds to Bamford who fizzes a follow-up shot just wide. It's incredible that Leeds haven't scored yet from the amount of chances they've had.
45' There'll be two added minutes at the end of this breathless first half. 
43' Richarlison rises high to nod Rodriguez's corner home. Everton celebrate but Godfrey was standing in front of Meslier in an offside position and the goal's chalked off. Richarlison has another effort from inside the box seconds later but this time Meslier is able to hold it.
42' Richarlison finds himself with the ball just outside the box and hits a swerving shot towards goal, forcing Meslier to dive to his left and tip it out for a corner.
40' Leeds cry for a penalty as Iwobi handles the ball in the penalty area but it isn't forthcoming. The officials take a look at it and decide not to penalise the Everton player. 
38' Rodriguez floats the free-kick in with Doucoure's help and Holgate gets on the end of it to smash the ball towards goal. Meslier makes the stop at his near post.
36' The game's entered a slight lull. It's entirely excusable after the pace of the opening half hour. Phillips fouls Rodriguez in the centre of the pitch and Everton have a free-kick from a decent position. 
34' Everton get some respite as they win a free-kick in their own half. Pickford sends it forward but Leeds come rushing straight back. The attack breaks down this time, but the visitors really do stream forward on the counter.
32' Leeds have had four shots on target so far - the most they've had in the first half of a Premier League game this season. Leeds get a free-kick down their left. It comes in and Calvert-Lewin hoofs it away.
30' Harrison's shot might just have kept underneath Pickford had Godfrey not been in the right place at the right time for Everton. Davies wins a free-kick as he's brought down by Klich.
28' Here come Leeds again! Ayling ventures forward from full-back and sends in a cross which Raphinha heads back across goal. Pickford tips it away! Ayling keeps the ball alive and cuts back to Harrison whose shot is blocked on the line by Godfrey! Leeds get a corner which Everton clear.
L. Ayling
Yellow Card
26' Ayling is booked for holding Richarlison. Keane heads over from Rodriguez's free-kick.
24' Richarlison sets Rodriguez through on goal. It looks like the Colombian's opportunity is gone when he reaches the byline until he beats Meslier with a deft flick into the far corner. The goal is ruled out as Rodriguez was just offside.
22' This game has had 10 shots already: three from Everton and seven from Leeds. At this rate it could end up with 40.
20' Leeds get another chance to take the lead! Everton get into a muddle at the back as Klich's shot goes wide. Klich crosses quickly for Bamford who has a free hit at goal from a few yards out, only for Pickford to make a great stop with his feet! This game could have had a few goals in it already.
18' Iwobi, playing at left wing-back in Digne's absence, cuts onto his right foot and swings a cross in but a Leeds defender takes the sting out of it.
16' Rodriguez slips a throughball into the box for Richarlison to chase. Meslier is onto it like a flash, sending the Brazilian toppling over in the box. It's great awareness by the French keeper and no hint of a penalty, although Richarlison takes some time to get back to his feet.
15' Rodriguez, in a centre-left position, wafts the ball towards the penalty area for Richarlison. Leeds head it clear. Everton are starting to settle on the ball but Leeds look a serious threat on the break.
13' Richarlison gets a shot away from the edge of the box but it's an easy test for Meslier. Up the other end, Klich's shot is blocked. Phillips finds himself in space and has a pop. It deflects off the outstretched Doucoure and safely into the arms of Pickford.
12' Doucoure loses possession carelessly in the middle. Harrison looks to set Bamford free through the middle but Holgate steps in to make the interception. This game is very fun so far.
10' Chance for Leeds! Raphinha knocks the ball in front of him and races forward. He uses Bamford as a dummy to find Harrison at the far post but the Manchester City loanee somehow fires wide! That should have been 1-0 to the visitors.
9' Bamford's shot from the centre of the box is blocked. Bielsa looks pensive while squatting on his cushioned bucket.
8' Ayling is back on the pitch now. Richarlison holds off the challenge of Phillips but can't create anything further forward. There's a great pace to this game early on.
6' Meslier denies Everton an early lead! Davies crosses from the right and Doucoure fires straight at the Leeds keeper from near the penalty shot. Meslier can't hold the shot first-time but dashes over to smother the ball.
4' Ayling has walked off the pitch temporarily after picking up a knock. We'll keep an eye on that one. Play continues for now.
3' Leeds have started with typical energy. Bamford performs a smart swivel on the edge of the box to fire wide of the right-hand post. The Leeds striker was just offside when he received the ball though.
1' Leeds make a lively start to the game! Bamford flicks the ball wide to Raphinha who races into the box from the right. Pickford is straight off his line to close down the angle and Raphinha's shot can only roll slowly towards goal. Everton hurriedly clear.
1' The players take the knee and Leeds get the game underway!
The two teams head out onto the Goodison Park pitch. Everton are wearing their blue and white home kit. Leeds are wearing their burgundy third strip. The players gather on the centre circle and observe a minute's applause for the sadly departed Diego Maradona.
Everton will be confident here. They're unbeaten in their last 13 top-flight games against Leeds at Goodison Park, a record dating back to 1990. Leeds haven't defeated Everton in the league at all since 2001, although Leeds won the last meeting between these two sides in the EFL Cup in September 2012. With both teams gung-ho going forward, this game promises goals.
Everton make two changes from their away win over Fulham. Davies comes in for the injured Digne at wing-back while Holgate replaces Mina. Leeds's starting line-up is unchanged from their 0-0 draw against Arsenal.
SUBS: Helder Costa, Leif Davis, Pascal Struijk, Kiko Casilla, Rodrigo Moreno, Ian Poveda-Ocampo, Tyler Roberts.
LEEDS UNITED (4-1-4-1): Illan Meslier; Luke Ayling, Robin Koch, Liam Cooper (c), Ezgjan Alioski; Kalvin Phillips; Raphinha, Mateusz Klich, Stuart Dallas, Jack Harrison; Patrick Bamford.
SUBS: Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Bernard, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Fabian Delph, Cenk Tosun, Jonas Lossl.
EVERTON (3-4-3): Jordan Pickford; Ben Godfrey, Michael Keane, Mason Holgate (c); Alex Iwobi, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan, Tom Davies; James Rodriguez, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
Leeds have similarly stuttered since their strong start to the season, shipping four goals in defeats to Leicester and Crystal Palace before drawing a blank against 10-man Arsenal. A boss as intense as Marcelo Bielsa will want to see no let-up from his side this early in their return to the Premier League.
Everton started the season extremely well before a four-game winless streak brought them back down to earth. Carlo Ancelotti's side got back to winning ways last time out with a 3-2 away victory over Fulham. Now the Toffees host another promoted side Leeds United as they look to build on their sixth placed position.
