A look ahead to Sunday and Monday's action from the Premier League with matches from Elland Road and Goodison Park.

Leeds United and Liverpool lock horns again at Elland Road.

After a manic Saturday in the Premier League, the action quietens down on Sunday and Monday, with just one game taking place on each day.

Leeds United entertain Liverpool at Elland Road on Sunday before Everton face Burnley at Goodison Park on Monday evening.

Even though there are only two games for punters to feast on, that doesn’t mean the quality will drop, and it looks like there could be two cracking matches on the agenda.

Reds to Triumph in West Yorkshire

Last season’s games between Leeds and Liverpool proved to be entertaining affairs, with nine goals scored in two matches.

Leeds went toe-to-toe with the Reds before losing 4-3 at Anfield before Liverpool were then held to a 1-1 draw in the second half of the season at Elland Road.

Virgil van Dijk’s return from injury has coincided with Liverpool’s return to form, with Jurgen Klopp’s side winning their first three games this season.

On the other hand, Leeds are yet to win under Marcelo Bielsa, but they have shown signs of their best form in the draws against Everton and Burnley.

With Elland Road set to be packed to the rafters, Leeds will fight until the end against one of the title contenders, but their defence looks shaky at the moment, and with Mohamed Salah coming to town, it looks to be a dangerous combination.

Salah has scored two goals and also got two assists so far this season and looks a good bet to score anytime at 20/21, while a Liverpool win and over 2.5 goals should be considered at 29/20.

Everton Should Add to Burnley’s Woes

Rafa Benitez’s arrival at Goodison Park wasn’t met with overwhelming joy, but the Spaniard has yet to put a foot wrong so far.

The Toffees are unbeaten from their first three league games, and they could move into the top four with three points, should results go their way.

Burnley’s only point of the season came against Leeds, with Brighton and Liverpool getting the better of them at the start of August.

Summer-signing Maxwel Cornet is struggling with a dead leg, while Connor Roberts, Kevin Long and Dale Stephens are all definitely injured.

Everton have scored seven goals from their first three matches this season, as many as they had in their last ten games last term.

An Everton win and over 2.5 goals catches the eye at 2/1, while punters should also consider Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the anytime goalscorer market.

He skipped England duty to an injury but is set to return for Everton, and he has scored in every league game so far this season. Calvert-Lewin has also scored in the last three meetings between Everton and Burnley, and he should be considered at odds of 21/20.
