A 65-year old Argentinian sitting on a bucket wouldn’t usually be of much interest, but in Marcelo Bielsa’s case, it poses a lot of questions.
What’s it made of? How many does he own? How many parody Twitter accounts does it have?
One thing we do know is that Bielsa and his bucket will be visiting Everton next, in what has the potential to be one of the most entertaining matches of the season.
|Fixture||Everton v Leeds United|

|How to Watch||Live on Sky Sports|
Our Top Odds Pick – Over 3.5 Goals – 13/8 at bet365
If this match ends 0-0 then we’ll eat a bauble from our Christmas tree.
Only three teams have scored more than Everton’s 19 goals, while only two have conceded more than Leeds’ 17.
Not that the Toffees are much better defensively, conceding 16 goals themselves and failing to keep a clean sheet since the opening day.
Five of Everton’s nine league games have seen four or more goals scored, and Leeds have found the net in all but two of their matches.
And we reckon that all adds up to goals on Merseyside.
Our Extra Pick – Richarlison to Score – 6/4 at Unibet
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has dominated the headlines this season, but Richarlison’s importance to Everton can’t be underestimated.
They have won five and drawn one of the six games he has played this season, struggling enormously during his three-game suspension.
The Brazilian only has one goal to his name, but he is averaging over 3 shots a game, with at least one on target.
And against a suspect Leeds backline, we reckon a player of his undoubted class will find the net on Saturday.
Our Long Shot – Niels Nkounkou to Have an Assist – 9/2 at Ladbrokes
There was bad news for Everton fans this week with the news that Lucas Digne had sustained an ankle injury and would miss at least a couple of months.
However, after a string of impressive performances in the League Cup, hopes are high that his understudy Niels Nkounkou can step up in his absence.
Everton seem set to continue with the 3-4-3 formation that served them well against Fulham, and this sets up nicely for Nkounkou to use his pace to attack the Leeds right hand side.
He already has a League Cup assist this season, and we’re up for a small dabble at a decent price that he can do the same here.
