Everton to Win

Reason for tip

Burnley have lost seven of their eight home matches this term while Everton have lost only once in their last eight away games. This should be a simple win for the in-form Toffees, who have won their last three matches to nil in a run that includes victories over Newcastle and Chelsea.

Everton 2-1

Reason for tip

Everton should prevail in this one, but Burnley can land a blow in defeat. Both teams have scored in five of the Toffees’ last eight away games and, without the services of exceptional young centre-back Jarrad Branthwaite, they could be susceptible to conceding.

Abdoulaye Doucoure To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Abdoulaye Doucoure has scored in three of Everton’s last five matches and could notch again on Saturday. Burnley’s 4-4-2 system leaves a decent amount of space between the defence and midfield and the Senegalese midfielder could pick up some pockets and get plenty of shots away.

Toffees to triumph at Turf Moor

Everton have laughed in the face of adversity in recent weeks, winning to nil in three of their four matches since receiving a ten-point deduction from the Premier League.

They beat relegation rivals Nottingham Forest 1-0 to kickstart that run before comfortably dispatching of highflying Newcastle 3-0 and big spenders Chelsea 2-0 ahead of their trip to Turf Moor on Saturday evening.

They should continue that fine run of form against Burnley, who have beaten the Toffees just six times in their last 16 meetings and are sat level on eight points with Premier League basement boys Sheffield United.

Vincent Kompany’s possession-based style was extremely effective in the Championship but it has not performed well in England’s top flight so far and former Burnley boss Sean Dyche has dismantled the Belgian’s tactics once already this season.

The two sides met in the last-16 of the League Cup in November and Dyche’s Everton ran out 3-0 victors, winning the shot count 14 to three despite Burnley having 63% possession, and the Toffees’ direct style could cause trouble for the Clarets once again.

Poor home form could cause crisis for Clarets

Turf Moor was once considered a difficult place to go, especially under Dyche, but that statement could not be further from the truth at current.

Burnley have lost seven of their eight home games this season, conceding 20 goals in that sequence, and were perhaps fortunate to stop that rot in their last match on their own patch, with Oli McBurnie’s early red card playing a big part in Sheffield United’s collapse in Lancashire at the start of the month.

But the Clarets look set to revert to the norm when they welcome Everton on Saturday, who have been in good form on their travels this season.

The Toffees have won five of their last six away games, beating highflying Aston Villa in the League Cup and Europa Conference League champions West Ham in the league in that run, and should be too strong for Burnley – who must quickly rectfify their poor home form if they are to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.

Stars starting to perform for Everton

Everton have made light work of lifting themselves out of the relegation zone following their points deduction and the form of their key attackers is largely responsible for that.

Abdoulaye Doucoure has scored in three of the Toffees’ last five matches while former Burnley man Dwight McNeil has begun to prove his worth too, netting twice in his last three appearances.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is getting close to his peak once more and has scored in three of his last six away games and, with that much firepower in Everton’s ranks, the Clarets – who have the second-worst defensive record in the league having conceded 34 times in 16 games – could be set for a tough evening on Saturday
