Raphinha lashes in his first Leeds goal to clinch victory over Everton
Carlo Ancelotti predicted an open affair but took no satisfaction, or points, from being proved correct. Knowing how Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds play does not equate to stifling them, and Raphinha’s first goal for the club since his £17m arrival from Rennes delivered another highly impressive away win for the entertainers from Elland Road.
The first meeting between Bielsa and Ancelotti was worth the wait. Everton and Leeds traded 38 shots on goal – 23 of them from the visitors – and while one goal represented a meagre return from an end-to-end, engrossing spectacle there would be no complaints from Bielsa.
