Frank Lampard secured his first win in the league as Everton produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. Seamus Coleman opened the scoring in the 10th minute before Michael Keane doubled their advantage in the 23rd minute. Anthony Gordon continued his sensational form as he sealed the three points in the 78th minute.
Everton manager Frank Lampard: “It was a really great performance. It was very important. I loved the performance and the atmosphere, it was very joined up here today. The fans were behind us and the players from the start showed an attitude and a work ethic which these fans demand, so it was a really good afternoon. We can do a lot here. Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves because our league position is not where we want it to be, but when we do that [today] we can do a lot.[He’s] a warrior and a symbol of the football club. I heard a lot about Seamus on my way to the job, about what a man he is, what a captain and leader he is, and what a great fella he is. He’s shown it from day one.”
Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa: “It was a fair result. They attacked better than us. In the second half, we defended a little bit better but we couldn’t manage to attack. If you watch the game you will see it was difficult for us to anticipate their forwards.”
