Luis Sinisterra joined Leeds in the summer from Feyenoord

Luis Sinisterra scored his first Premier League goal for Leeds as he came from a goal behind to draw with Everton in a thrilling encounter at Elland Road.

The Colombian winger, who scored his first goal for the club in the EFL Cup last week following a summer move from Feyenoord, headed in from 18 yards after the break as Leeds piled on the everton

They improved greatly after a poor first half as Anthony Gordon scored for a second successive game, keeping his composure to slot the ball through the legs of Illan Meslier following Alex Iwobi’s pass.

Leeds top scorer Rodrigo also went off with what appeared to be an injured shoulder after an innocuous challenge on Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

But inspired by the impressive Jack Harrison and substitute Joe Gelhardt, Leeds broke through their opponents only to find Pickford in full form, denying both players and Brenden Aaronson.

As the game opened up, Everton had late chances to win it thanks to Amadou Onana and Nathan Patterson.

But with Leeds adding more pressure, Everton’s backline held firm, although the result leaves the Toffees searching for their first win of the season under Frank Lampard.

Leeds turn on the style in the second half

Leeds’ second-half comeback came after a first period in which they showed plenty of effort but found Everton’s new defense too difficult to break down.

Rodrigo’s injury also dented his confidence, with the Spain international leaving the pitch in some discomfort after a shoulder charge with Pickford.

He had his best chance of the first half when he came inches from connecting with Harrison’s cross early on, but it was only after the break that the hosts began to test Pickford.

First, Aaronson made a good save from the Everton keeper before Harrison had another effort.

But the England number one could do little with Sinisterra’s effort from the edge of the box.

Elland Road erupted at that point, threatening to spill over when Gordon and Rasmus Kristensen brought their heads together soon after, resulting in a yellow card each, and the two benches also clashed.

At times, it felt like a throwback to another era, but the football was exciting even if Patrick Bamford’s return from injury couldn’t conjure up a winner.

Despite the feeling of disappointment at the end, Leeds bounced back from their first defeat of the season at Brighton on Saturday to show they are serious about boss Jesse Marsch and the point keeps them fifth in the table.

Everton have no punch up front as Maupay misses out

Although Lampard will be disappointed his side were unable to capitalize on their own chances in the end, with Patterson clean through on goal but denied by Meslier, his side showed enough defensive skill to deserve a point.

Gordon, who has been the subject of at least one rejected £45m bid from Chelsea during the transfer window, showed his composure and why Lampard is keen to keep the England Under-21 international.

But a third draw of the season was also the credit of a fresh defense which was well organized by the new centre-back pairing of Conor Coady and James Tarkowski. They were also well protected by summer signing Onana, who looked impressive at the base of midfield.

That side of Lampard’s side was much improved from last season, but where they struggled again was scoring goals, although Demarai Gray had the ball in the net only to be denied by a marginal offside decision of play, which was confirmed by the video assistant referee. .

With Dominic Calvert-Lewin still injured, the arrival of Brighton’s Neal Maupay on Friday was supposed to help that cause, but he sat frustratingly on the bench as Everton missed the midday deadline to play.
