Reasons for Everton vs Burnley Tip
Just for one second, we thought that Everton might improve their performances. Immediately, the Toffees denied us with the most recent performance in the Europa League. They will have a tough task against Burnley, the club who plays excellent against big names. Sean Dyche is perfect in scanning the flaws of the opponent, and he is the biggest advantage of this team. It will be interesting to see will he be the reason for Ronald Koeman’s departure from Goodison after this game.
After two straight wins, Everton disappointed their fans in the Europa League this Thursday against Apollon Limassol, 2-2. They had the lead, one player more on the field, but in the end, they managed to blow everything up. Although it is the third straight game in which they haven’t lost, the draw against the Cypriot club is considered as a loss. Ronald Koeman is under enormous pressure, and if Everton slips one more time, the Dutch manager will probably be sacked. The game at Goodison was the 6th in a row in which we saw 3 or more goals. Also, it was the 7th in the previous 8 in which Everton allowed the opening goal of the match. Michael Keane is a new name on the injury list in front of this game.
Unlike Everton, the guests prefer slow games with low tempo, which do not produce many goals. Only one event in the past 7 terminated with over 2.5 goals. That is mostly because Burnley relies on counter-attacks and they do it very good. At the moment the Clarets have 5 straight games without a defeat in the Premier League, but in the meantime, they lost in the League Cup against Leeds United after the penalties. Sean Dyche’s assembly still didn’t lose away from home, and in all three games, they were impressive. At first, Burnley defeated Chelsea 2-3 and following that recorded two draws against Tottenham and Liverpool with the same result, 1-1. Tom Heaton, Nahki Wells, and Dean Marney are out for this game, while Jonathan Walters is doubtful.
