Two sides who come off disappointing results last weekend in the Premier League lock horns. Burnley will be playing host to Everton at Turf Moor. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 3:30 pm.
In their recent outing, Burnley suffered a 5-0 thrashing from Manchester City while their opponents went down to a 1-0 defeat to Leeds at home. Eleven points separate the two sides heading into the opening Premier League fixture of the weekend. The Toffees are currently eight on the table while their opponents in the bottom three.
In a seasoned campaign marred with uncertainties, the form for the Clarets in the league has been shocking. A side known for their strong defensive output fell short to a 5-0 thrashing with Riyahd Mahrez netting a hattrick.
Dyche tried different tactics during the match to build upon their 1-0 win against Crystal Palace but only proved futile. The win marked the only one for the Clarets, and they are now seeking their consecutive Premier League home victories for the first time since October 2019.
The second win in the sequence came against Everton, making it four wins in six top-flight meetings against the Toffees. Carlo Ancelotti’s side has conceded in nine Premier League games.
The Toffees have lost four of their last five Premier League meetings heading into this one, the exception of a tight 3-2 win over Fulham in their most recent away outing.
