Late Raphinha goal sees Leeds beat Everton

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 665

Raphinha's 79th minute goal gave Leeds United a 0-1 victory at Goodison Park versus Everton. The Toffees had two goals disallowed with the score at 0-0.

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti was reduced to tears before his side's 1-0 loss to Leeds as respects were paid to Maradona before all Premier League games this weekend with a minute's applause.

An enthralling 90 minutes followed at Goodison Park with chances aplenty for both sides despite just one goal, scored by Raphinha 11 minutes from time.

James Rodriguez and Richarlison had goals ruled out for offside before the break, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin dragged a big chance wide for Everton early in the second-half.

But it was Leeds who had the majority of the chances as Jordan Pickford made a brilliant save to deny Patrick Bamford, while Raphinha and Jack Harrison failed to hit the target with clear openings. Raphinha finally made the breakthrough when he arrowed a low left-footed shot beyond Pickford from 25 yards to move Marcelo Bielsa's men up to 11th.

A fourth defeat in five games leaves Everton still in sixth.
