Everton manager Frank Lampard has said that he is pleased with his side’s performance against Leeds United this week.
The Toffees played out a 1-1 draw with Leeds away from home at Elland Road in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.
Anthony Gordon put Everton in the lead in the 17th minute, and Leeds restored parity through Luis Sinisterra on 55 minutes.
Lampard told Everton’s official website: “For sure. Their discipline, their battle, their work-rate…
“They’re a running team here at Leeds, they put pressure on the game and try to play through you and win the ball back.
“A lot of energy is required to match that. I thought we did it brilliantly and negated a lot of clear chances for them.
“Their goal is a half chance that goes in and then we have some really good moments in the games as well, so I’m really pleased with the spirit because it’s not an easy place to come here. I thought we played very well.”
Everton will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Liverpool at Goodison Park in the Premier League.
The Toffees can be backed at 18/1 on Betfair to win the Merseyside derby 2-1.
