Leeds announced Javi Gracia as their new manager after a 1-0 loss at Everton on Saturday. The Whites were second best with 0.79 expected goals and conceded in the second half.

The defeat leaves Leeds winless in their last four in all competitions. A draw (2-2) and defeat (2-0) against Man United followed a 1-0 loss against Nottingham Forest. 

Gracia’s side are 19th in the Premier League and two points from safety.

Midfielder Adam Forshaw and forward Rodrigo are out.

Defenders Stuart Dallas and Maximilian Wöber are also out.

Ruben Selles was named interim manager of Southampton and he oversaw a 1-0 win at Chelsea on Saturday. James Ward-Prowse struck the winner late in the first half.

The win ended a three-match losing streak in the Premier League. Defeats came against Wolves (2-1), Brentford (3-0) and Aston Villa (1-0). 

The Saints are bottom of the Premier League after just three wins in their last 18.

Forward Che Adams should be in contention after a recent knock.
