“It feels nice to score my first goal in the Premier League. I have to keep working as I am doing. It is amazing and I have to keep working to score many more.

“Everton played really good. They found the goal early so they dropped and then waited for the counter. It was difficult for us to find the net. In the second half we could do it.

“I think we deserved a bit more but we kept working.”

Everton boss Frank Lampard accused Leeds of becoming “obsessed” with the time as the hosts appeared to be frustrated with what they felt were time-wasting tactics from the Toffees.

He said: “We could have got three points. Really good spirit and organisation from us in a really tough place to come because of the way they play. The pressure is high.

“You saw the result they got against Chelsea. They were one goal down against Wolves in the first game of the season. Momentum can build in this stadium very quickly.

“We played well. The spirit, the defensive organisation, the breakaways. We had real good chances in the second half to win the game.

“I think they [Leeds] became obsessed with the time. We went 1-0 up and there were a couple of times the ball was in the crowd still and their bench was talking about time.

“I don’t know if they want Jordan [Pickford] to sprint into the crowd and get the ball back. I don’t get it. I think it became an obsession.

“The crowd get on it and try to put pressure on the referee. I understand it. It became a side issue because there were times when we had to get the ball. Strange.”
