Leeds winger Dan James admits Everton deserved their win on Saturday.
James says that his side didn't get off to the best of starts and simply couldn't find a way back into the game.
"When the crowd got behind them they looked like a great team. We tried to control the game a bit more but we didn't start at the races," James told LUTV.
"They were on the front foot and put us under pressure.
"We just didn't deal with it well. The crowd really got behind them and that worked in their favour. The early goal killed us a little bit. They were the better team today.
"We had to try and work to get back into the game and we couldn't. We had to keep creating chances but they got their second.
"We still believed we could get back into it. We all believe in ourselves, it just wasn't our day."
