Luis Sinisterra’s goal for Leeds erased an early Anthony Gordon strike and kept Everton winless in the Premier League this season following a turgid 1-1 draw at Elland Road. Anthony Gordon opened the scoring with a finely placed shot in the 17th minute, giving Everton their second lead of the campaign. Still, Leeds came from behind through Luis Sinisterra’s first Premier League goal in the 55th minute. Leeds deserved at least a point, and an explosive start to the second half brought Leeds level. A testy contest continued for much of the second half. Still, shortly after the break, Leeds could find an equaliser through Luis Sinisterra, a new signing making his first start, beating goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to the near post. Despite putting the match beyond Everton, Leeds could not grab a breakthrough goal. The home side failed to mount an immediate response, going into half-time trailing 1-0.
Leeds started poorly in the match, conceding an early goal in the 17th minute as Anthony Gordon scored for the Toffees. It looked as though Everton was going to need three or four chances for them to find a way in, while in the opening minutes of the second half, they held Everton at bay. Leeds pressure continued to build throughout the half, Jesse Marsch’s blood pressure and the crowds volume going together. Frank Lampard’s side came closest to winning their first League victory this season as Rasmus Kristensen blocked Amadou Onana’s effort from close range in the 79th minute. The ball found the 21-year-old Belgian because he was in the correct spot in the box. He pushed it, and it appeared to be headed in for a goal, but Kristensen put his head between them, keeping the score at 1-1. Last night, Kristensen‘s block truly saved the game for Leeds, and he is proving to be a superb acquisition. The 25-year-old has so far played the whole of every game for the Whites and has excelled. He is strong at the back and upfront, and as we witnessed last night during his heated exchange with Gordon, he also doesn’t back down from a fight.
Then, four minutes later, Leeds’ Goalkeeper Illan Meslier denied Nathan Paterson as Anthony Gordon’s shot went wide. Everton is still winless after five Premier League games. f there is going to be a bleak fight-back from relegation, they might be wise not to lose Anthony Gordon to reported suitors Chelsea ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline. Everton supporters hold Gordon in high regard as a hero. One of Everton’s greatest players, the 21-year-old graduated from the club’s youth programme.
