Everton 0 vs 1 Leeds United highlights 28.11

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti to Sky Sports: "They got a goal at the end. We could have scored before, they could have scored before. In the end, they won because they got the goal.

"We knew they played like this. In the first half, we had more problems defensively. In the second half, we were better and had chances. We conceded a little bit less, but in the end, they scored.

"Tom Davies is in a new position, Iwobi is in a new position. In the second half, we were more compact and we didn’t concede a lot. There are important players out at this moment, but we need to manage this. Lucas [Digne] is out for three months. I don’t want to say the game was not good. The game was difficult, but with more efficiency, we could have won.
"We’ve had more problems in recent games. We have to be focused in every game. We are in a good position in the table still, but we have to have more consistency at the back."

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa to BBC Sport: "It was a victory which was very difficult to achieve. I think we played well.
"But to defend against a team with so many players who can unbalance is complicated.

"We have many players who can play in different areas of the pitch. Those who attack can defend as well, and those who defend know how to attack. This allows for the combinations.
"Raphinha is a player who can unbalance. He can play in any part of the pitch with resources to worry the opponent."

Leeds defender Luke Ayling to BBC Match of the Day: "We’ve been working with [Bielsa] for the last two years. It’s the third year of his reign now. I think we have a reputation for being a fit team, but I thought our football was excellent today. We broke them down a few times and I think we could have scored a few more. To hold two good teams [Arsenal and Everton] to zero is also good for us.

"Our first eight games was always going to be a learning curve. I think we’ve learned a lot from those eight games. I think we’re starting to play more football and not just try to be hard to beat. So far, so good.

"It was an open game. We had that bit of quality for the goal. Straight afterwards the game became open and we probably could have scored a few more on the counter-attack. It was very good from us.

"I know quite a lot of people say it, but it is a dream for us to be playing at this level. We were in League One and in the Championship for many years, so to be in the Premier League is what we dreamt of as kids. I hope we can keep playing good football and keep this going."

On Raphinha’s goal: "He’s been doing a lot of that in training. I’m really pleased for him."
