Everton aiming to bounce back
Everton were handed a reality check by a confident Chelsea team on Monday evening, though the Toffees’ 2-0 reverse at Stamford Bridge should help to refocus minds ahead of a more winnable test against Burnley on Saturday.
Carlo Ancelotti’s troops had won three matches in a row before their slip-up in the capital, a streak that Everton kicked off with a superb 2-0 triumph over Merseyside rivals Liverpool at Anfield.
Another victory would see the Blues close to within just one point of the top four, and Everton will fancy their chances of claiming the win they need against the Clarets.
Burnley’s travel sickness
Burnley have lost just twice in their last 12 league assignments at Turf Moor, however, Sean Dyche’s side have been far less effective on the road where they have lost four times in six matches.
It’s also worth noting that only four clubs have lost more Premier League away games overall than Burnley this season, while bottom club Sheffield United are the only outfit to have scored fewer goals than the Clarets on their travels.
Everton an enticing price
With Burnley’s underwhelming away record this season considered, Everton could be worth backing to rediscover their winning touch when the Clarets visit Goodison Park on Saturday.
The Toffees had started to build momentum with three successive victories before they hit a wall at Stamford Bridge, and having toppled Burnley twice in a row on Merseyside, Everton look a generous price to repeat the trick.
Sean Dyche’s charges failed to find a successful route to goal in five of their last seven away assignments, and Burnley also failed to impact the scoresheet on each of their last two trips to Goodison Park.
Everton meanwhile, have kept three clean sheets in four fixtures, and our 1-0 correct score prediction tips the Toffees to keep Burnley at arm’s length again this weekend.
