Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

Everton jumped on Leeds United from the first whistle and scored a couple of early goals to cruise to a 3-0 win in the Premier League on Saturday.

Here’s how it happened [RBM], our instant reaction after the final whistle [RBM], and five stats from the game [RBM].

Watch the highlights below.

And some behind-the-scenes clips from a rocking Goodison.

Frank Lampard gave credit to his assistant Paul Clement for fixing the setpieces, both on the attacking and defending fronts. [RBM]

“I wasn’t playing but it was down to me [to regain place], I looked at myself and changed a lot of things, I didn’t make excuses anymore and forced my way back in.
“It [personal change] was my mindset of, ‘I want to play for Everton’. I want to be the best player I can. I am a local lad but I want to show everyone what I am about. It is not just lying down and letting the bad times take over.” - Jonjoe Kenny talks about how he has forced his way back into the first team reckoning. [EFC]

Michael Keane talks about how new manager Frank Lampard has lifted the spirits of all the players. [EFC]

Anthony Gordon credits the fans who made Goodison Park a perfectly horrible place for Leeds to visit on Saturday. [EFC]

Donny van de Beek was just class on Saturday wasn’t he?
