Everton are deep in the relegation battle and need to beat Chelsea on Sunday if they are to keep their hopes of staying up alive.

Everton are desperate to break their losing duck and finally get a win when they host Leeds United on Saturday.

Even a win will not better their 16th place position on the table but it would bring some much needed morale to the squad.

Frank Lampard’s side are on a four-match losing streak and he is just as desperate for a first English Premier League win with them.

The 2-1 success over Arsenal back in December represents the Toffees’ only win from their last 14 in the Premier League.

Leeds are without a win in two games and are coming off an enthralling 3-3 draw with Aston Villa in midweek.

Leeds and Everton played out a 2-2 stalemate at Elland Road last season, but the Whites did claim a 1-0 win at Goodison Park.
