That’s all for now. Until next time, goodbye!
That’s a big win for Everton who, as it stands – with West Ham currently beating Aston Villa – are into sixth. Leeds, meanwhile, stay in 11th place.
It’s all over at Elland Road, where Everton have claimed another away victory – their fourth on the road in a row! Leeds pushed them all the way, and goalkeeper Olsen had to make some superb saves after Raphinha had dragged Leeds back into it early in the second half, but goals from Sigurdsson and Calvert-Lewin ultimately ensured the points. It’s finished Leeds 1-2 Everton.
90' + 5' CHANCE! A dreadful decision from Doucoure puts King in trouble. Leeds bounce, with Bamford squaring it to Roberts on the edge of the area but, on the half-volley, Roberts skies his effort.
90' + 4' It’s full on attack from Leeds, as you would expect, but Everton are somehow holding on.
90' + 3' Davies gives the ball away in the middle of the park. Leeds capitalise, Roberts finding Ayling, but he sees two shots blocked by Godfrey and then Keane, with Calvert-Lewin clearing the corner.
R. Olsen
Yellow Card
90' Olsen also goes into the book, this time for time-wasting.
B. Godfrey
Yellow Card
90' Godfrey has received a booking for kicking the ball away, as five minutes added time is signalled.
90' Holgate is the player to clear the free-kick on this occasion, but Leeds keep up the pressure. Raphinha gets down the left, but his cross sails out of play.
T. Davies
G. Sigurðsson
89' Before the free-kick, Everton decide to make a change. Davies is on in place of Sigurdsson.
M. Holgate
Yellow Card
89' Holgate makes a silly tackle, and will go into the book for it. He got skipped past by Raphinha, and needlessly pulls the Brazilian back.
Hélder Costa
J. Harrison
87' Leeds have made a final change. Costa comes on, replacing Harrison.
J. King
A. Iwobi
87' King is on for his Everton bow. He replaces Iwobi.
86' That save could be a vital one for Leeds. There’s four minutes left, plus stoppage time.
85' MISS! That should have been the game for Everton! Mina atones by clearing the set-piece and Doucoure leads a counter-attack. He slides in Calvert-Lewin, but one-on-one with Meslier, he prods a tame effort into the Leeds’ goalkeeper.
84' That is a reckless lunge from Mina, who had no need to dive in on Roberts, and Leeds now have a free-kick on the edge of Everton’s box, to the left. Phillips stands over it…
81' Calvert-Lewin latches onto a pass from Doucoure, but ultimately floats a disappointing effort straight into the hands of Meslier. Meanwhile, King is readying himself for an Everton debut.
M. Keane
80' Everton also make a change, and it is a defensive one. Keane is on, and Richarlison goes off.
L. Ayling
Yellow Card
79' Digne does well to get back and rob Raphinha of possession, before sliding for the ball and hooking it out of play. Ayling gets there late, and receives a booking for his troubles.
Pablo Hernández
E. Alioski
78' A second change for Leeds. Hernandez is on in place of Alioski.
76' Fantastic defending from Cooper, who stands up Calvert-Lewin to make a well-timed challenge in the Leeds area.
74' Everton string a decent passage of play together down the right, relieving some pressure as they force a throw-in high upfield. Will Ancelotti turn to his bench sooner rather than later?
72' OFF THE BAR! Leeds toy with Everton’s defence before Dallas gets space to lob in a cross. Bamford rises to meet it, but his header loops over Olsen and onto the top of the woodwork.
70' Another chance for Leeds to test Everton’s defence, after Mina fouls Bamford. Phillips’ ball into the box is an inviting one, but Richarlison scrambles it clear.
T. Roberts
M. Klich
69' A change for Leeds. Klich makes way for Roberts.
66' CLOSE! Richarlison is given time and space to cut in from the wing. With limited options, he takes on the shot, but it sails wide.
64' It seems as though Olsen will be okay to carry on.
63' Well, that string of stops could have resulted in an injury for Olsen, who is having his wrist checked by the Everton medical staff.
61' How have Leeds not scored? That is incredible goalkeeping from Olsen. Everton conceded possession in their own third. Klich’s shot takes a deflection, but Olsen gets down to it, and then reacts brilliantly to deny Raphina on the rebound. Seconds later, he is up again to deny Harrison.
58' Everton manage to get up the pitch, with Doucoure making a charge into the area. His lay off falls to Sigurdsson and Iwobi, but neither of them can get it under control.
57' There has been a massive shout for an Everton penalty. Digne floated in a free-kick which seemed to hit Ayling’s arm in the area, but neither the referee or VAR seem to have checked it.
56' Bamford has provided five assists in the Premier League this season – his joint-best tally in a single campaign in English league football (also five in 2013-14).
54' Leeds are just piling forward, and Everton haven’t got an outball. Klich had the chance to tee up a team-mate, but his pass was poor. Iwobi, however, can’t control the ball, and Mina is forced into making a foul.
53' Everton look extremely cagey now, and Leeds are looking slick and swift in possession. Dallas has just tried a shot from range, but Gomes blocked it.
52' Raphinha is the second Leeds player to score home and away against Everton in a single Premier League campaign after Michael Bridges in 1999-2000.
50' Bielsa will be thrilled, but Ancelotti will be absolutely furious with that defensive mistake from his side, so early in the half.
48' GOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!!! LEEDS STRIKE BACK! That is abysmal defending from Holgate, who takes a risk and gets bundled off the ball. Bamford prods to Raphinha, and his first-time finish finds the corner!
P. Bamford
48' Bamford gets the assist, and he reacted superbly to move it onto Raphinha, whose finish was clinical. It's Leeds 1-2 Everton!
48' Calvert-Lewin has scored nine headed goals in the Premier League since the start of last season; the only player in Europe's top five leagues with more over this period is Robert Lewandowski (12), while Leeds have now conceded 17 times from set-pieces in the top flight this term.
46' KICK-OFF! Everton get the second half underway.
Everton have a great away record, but will know these points are far but secured, with Leeds definitely capable of pulling themselves back into this contest. Both managers have plenty of attacking options on the bench, and you would not be surprised if Bielsa called on one of them for the start of the second half.
It’s 2-0 to Everton at half-time, with goals from Sigurdsson and Calvert-Lewin early and late on in the half respectively putting the visitors ahead. Leeds have been good value too, with Alioski rattling the woodwork with a stunning volley, but their defensive lapses have come back to haunt them once more.
45' + 1' There will be two minutes of added time before the interval.
45' Another set-piece opportunity for Everton, as Phillips fouls Sigurdsson. Digne delivers the cross, which is aimed for Mina, but Leeds clear it this time.
43' Leeds try to respond swiftly, with Cooper looking to plant a flat pass onto the head of Bamford. Olsen, however, comes off his line to claim it.
B. Godfrey
41' Leeds have conceded so many goals from set-pieces this season, and Godfrey got the run of his marker and just managed to divert it onto Calvert-Lewin.
D. Calvert-Lewin
41' GOOOOOAAAALLLL!! IT’S 2-0 O EVERTON! Leeds’ set-piece issues come back to bite them, as Godfrey meets Sigurdsson’s inswinging corner at the near post, and Calvert-Lewin is on hand to nod it in.
40' Bielsa could become only the fourth manager to win his first two top-flight managerial matches against Ancelotti, after Alberto Zaccheroni (Udinese, 1996-97), Zdenek Zeman (1996-97, Lazio & Roma) and Gerardo Martino (2013-14, Barcelona).
38' Digne’s slip, and then another fall from Richarlison, allow Leeds to capitalise down the right. Ayling tries to pick out Bamford, but Mina gets across to make a fantastic clearance.
36' Waste! Iwobi wins the ball in the middle of the park and slips it through to Calvert-Lewin. He had Richarlison in support but, to Ancelotti’s chagrin, goes for goal himself, but curls his effort well wide.
33' Everton have won four of their last five away league games (D1), including each of the last three in a row. They last won four consecutive top-flight away games in December 1985.
31' Great defending from Phillips, who had managed to track back all the way and stop Richarlison’s cross finding Sigurdsson. It would not have counted, however, as the Brazilian was offside.
30' Godfrey charges forward from centre-back, getting Everton right on the front foot. Iwobi picks up possession and drills in a cross, but Ayling is there to deal with it.
28' Everton’s press forces Cooper into a stray pass straight to Richarlison but, 20 yards out from goal, the Brazil forward fails to trap the ball and Leeds escape.
26' SAVE! Olsen makes a brilliant stop, reacting quickly to deny Struijk, who had flicked on Phillips free-kick.
25' This newly laid turf is causing havoc for both sets of players, with plenty of them struggling to find their footing. Gomes just tried to lead a counter charge, but completely lost his balance going down the sideline, sliding into Bielsa in the process.
23' Leeds are definitely beginning to turn the screw here, and are controlling possession. Everton have been forced deeper and deeper, but that is not making them look anymore comfortable in defence.
21' Of the 45 sides Everton have faced at least 10 times away from home in top-flight history, their lowest win rate on the road is against Leeds – the Toffees have won just three of their 49 visits to Elland Road (D12 L34).
20' OFF THE POST! What an effort that was! Raphinha drills a corner to the edge of the box, and Alioski meets it with a wonderful volley. Olsen is beaten all ends up, but the woodwork comes to Everton’s rescue.
18' Leeds work a promising move down the right, with Ayling delivering a cross towards the penalty spot. Bamford gets higher than Mina to meet it, but sends a looping effort over the bar.
J. Harrison
Yellow Card
16' The first booking of the game goes to Harrison, who lunged in on Holgate down Leeds’ left flank, giving Everton a free-kick in a dangerous position.
15' Digne floats in a free-kick which Leeds clear only as far as Iwobi, who gets it to Holgate and then onto Sigurdsson. His cross is delivered into a dangerous area but, under pressure from Mina, Meslier collects calmly.
13' Digne has provided more Premier League assists this season than any other defender (six).
11' SAVE! Now it’s Leeds’ turn to attack, with Klich curling an effort towards the right-hand corner. Olsen gets there comfortably, but only feels comfortable in parrying it away for a corner.
10' CHANCE! Everton win the ball back in Leeds’ final third. Calvert-Lewin tries to find Richarlison, but the pass is blocked. Everton’s number nine picks up the loose ball and attempts to beat Meslier, but his shot is a tame one.
L. Digne
9' That's another assist for Digne, who is one of Everton's main creators. It appeared his cross was nothing more than a hopeful one, but Sigurdsson had time his run to perfection.
G. Sigurðsson
9' GOOOAAAAL! EVERTON TAKE THE LEAD! Gomes played a long ball over the top to Digne, who appeared to have no support in the area but, from out wide, drills in a great cross. Leeds’ centre-backs completely switched off, and Sigurdsson is on hand to prod in under Meslier. Everton lead 1-0!
8' Everton hold onto the ball for a sustained spell, but Leeds manage to channel the play into the centre of the pitch, and it is too congested to work a move together.
6' Leeds have, of course, had a new pitch – bought from Tottenham – laid at Elland Road. There is sure to be plenty of zip in it, and both of these sides are set up to play today. Everton finally get hold of the ball and attempt to feed it into Calvert-Lewin, but his touch is poor.
4' Everton attempt to pen Leeds back, but the hosts’ defenders are all comfortable enough on the ball and manage to get it out into midfield.
3' Following their 1-0 win at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture, Leeds are looking to complete their first league double over Everton since 1990-91, when they were also a newly promoted side.
2' Leeds make a rapid start. A quick throw-in catches Everton cold, and Godfrey is forced into conceding a corner. However, the Toffees defend it well. 
1' KICK-OFF! We are up and running at Elland Road! Leeds, wearing their all white home strip, get us underway!
The teams are out at Elland Road, and kick-off is coming up! Phillips has been passed fit to feature, despite sustaining what appeared to be a hip injury in the warm-up.
Four alterations from Ancelotti. One is enforced, with Jordan Pickford injured, so Olsen starts in goal. James, Keane and Coleman also drop to the bench, with Gomes, Godfrey and Holgate coming in. New signing King – a deadline day arrival from Bournemouth – is among the substitutes.
EVERTON SUBSTITUTES: Micheal Keane, Fabian Delph, Joshua King, Niels Nkounkou, James Rodriguez, Bernard, Seamus Coleman, Tom Davies, Joao Virginia.
EVERTON (4-2-3-1): Robin Olsen; Mason Holgate, Yerry Mina, Ben Godfrey, Lucas Digne; Abdoulaye Doucoure, Andre Gomes; Alex Iwobi, Gylfli Sigurdsson, Richarlison; Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Just the one change from Marcelo Bielsa, with Rodrigo Moreno missing out from injury. His place in Leeds’ midfield is taken by Klich, while Bamford and Raphinha – who scored the winner in the reverse fixture – have passed late fitness tests. There could be a late change, however, as it seems Phillips may have suffered an injury in the warm-up.
LEEDS UNITED SUBSTITUTES: Jamie Shackleton, Niall Huggins, Helder Costa, Jack Jenkins, Pablo Hernandez, Kiko Casilla, Leif Davis, Tyler Roberts, Charlie Cresswell.
LEEDS UNITED (4-1-4-1): Ilan Meslier; Luke Ayling, Pascal Struijk, Liam Cooper, Ezgjan Alioski; Kalvin Phillips; Raphinha, Mateusz Klich, Stuart Dallas, Jack Harrison; Patrick Bamford.
Everton, meanwhile, suffered a second consecutive home defeat in the top flight, as they went down to struggling Newcastle United. However, Carlo Ancelotti’s team are on a five-match unbeaten run on the road, having won four of those games.
Leeds recorded a second successive league win last time out, and did so in some style, as they despatched high-flying Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
