Everton vs Burnley

As the battle for Premier League survival heats up, Everton and Burnley go head-to-head in a pivotal clash at Goodison Park.

Everton had to thank Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s late penalty for salvaging a 1-1 draw at Newcastle United in midweek Premier League action, extending their slender lead on 18th-placed Luton Town to four points. However, winless in their last 13 top-flight outings (D6, L7), the Toffees come into proceedings amidst their longest winless league streak for 67 years, highlighting the pressure on manager Sean Dyche to take three points at Goodison for the first time in 2024. Burnley’s visit to Merseyside could be just what the doctor ordered, as three of Everton’s last four home league H2Hs have ended victoriously (L1). Moreover, Dyche’s men have defeated the Clarets twice this season, beating them 2-0 in the league’s reverse fixture before picking up a comfortable 3-0 triumph in the Carabao Cup.

On the other hand, Burnley’s spirited 1-1 home draw against Wolverhampton a few days ago stretched their unbeaten Premier League run to four matches (W1, D3), maintaining their dream of pulling off the unthinkable and avoiding relegation. Securing their first away league win against Everton could be a season-defining moment for Vincent Kompany’s side as they commence this round six points adrift of safety. However, Burnley’s travel sickness spells trouble, with the Yorkshire outfit going six away league matches without a win (D2, L4) since a 2-0 win at Fulham on Boxing Day. Defensive frailties have plagued Burnley in that sequence, with the Clarets conceding 2+ goals on each occasion. But a 2-2 draw at Chelsea on their most recent league trip showed their fighting spirits.
