Burnley vs Everton betting tips: Premier League preview & prediction

Burnley vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction Burnley 1-1 Everton

Burnley are a well-oiled machine under Sean Dyche and with Everton’s poor away form in recent seasons, this could be a close-run game.

The Clarets are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games, with their last loss coming against Liverpool.

Since then, they have beaten Norwich City and drawn with Brighton and Aston Villa.

While they may not be able to mount a Europa League charge like a couple of seasons ago, they should perform well this season.

Meanwhile, it’s a tale of dashed hopes at Everton.

There was plenty of optimism for the Toffees ahead of the new season.

A plethora of big signings had people predicting a big season for Everton but they haven’t lived up to expectations.

Losses against Bournemouth, Sheffield United and Manchester City have created somewhat of a mini-crisis that Everton must now navigate.

Burnley vs Everton: Who will win?

Surprisingly, it’s Everton who go into this game as favourites.

The Toffees, despite losing three games in a row, are priced at 6/4 to win the game at Turf Moor.

Meanwhile, Burnley are the outsiders to win the game despite being unbeaten in three.

They’re priced at 9/5 to win the game.

At that price, a Burnley win represents very good value.

Everton’s last two away games in the Premier League have been extremely disappointing losses to both Aston Villa and Bournemouth.

A draw though, as we predict, is priced at 9/4 while a 1-1 draw specifically is 11/2.

Moving onto the goalscorer market, it’s Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood who lead the way.

The Burnley pair are 5/1 for first goalscorer.

They’re followed by Lewis Richardson and Everton’s Moise Kean at 6/1.

Everton’s star man Richarlison is 13/2, while probably your best value bet is Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who is priced at 7/1 to score first after netting three goals in two games.

Burnley vs Everton match preview

Burnley have well and truly solidified themselves in the Premier League over the past few years.

After Sean Dyche brought them up from the Championship, Burnley have finished 16th, 7th and 15th.

While it hasn’t always been pretty at times, their football gets the results needed and in the season which they finished 7th, their performances were rewarded with a Europa League spot.

Dyche’s side have emphasised how hard they are to beat this season, losing just two games in their opening seven.

Those losses also can be forgiven having come against Arsenal and title-chasing Liverpool.

Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes’ form has also been another positive factor of this season so far.

Barnes has scored an impressive four goals so far this season, while Wood has scored three times.

With Burnley’s defensive solidity and threat from set-pieces, they could not come up against a better side this weekend.

Can the Toffees get their season back on track?

Everton have been pretty disappointing this season.

Despite the positive signings of Moise Kean, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Fabian Delph and more, the same old cracks are appearing under Marco Silva.

The Toffees simply don’t know how to break down a team who are defensively solid.

Despite having a very threatening attack on paper, they create so little and that has shown against the so-called ‘lesser teams’ this season.

While Bournemouth are an impressive side under Eddie Howe, Everton should be beating them if they have aspirations of a top-six finish.

Instead, they hardly made a dent and were caught out at the back on numerous occasions.

It was a similar case against Aston Villa when Everton were beaten 2-0.

While their performance improved against Manchester City, it was always going to be easier to attack against an expansive Pep Guardiola side who were looking to be on the front foot and could afford to give Everton time on the ball.

With Burnley one of the more defensively solid teams in the Premier League, expect Everton to struggle to break them down and the Toffees could also get caught out by one of Chris Wood or Ashley Barnes from set-pieces.


Burnley team news vs Everton

Danny Drinkwater will miss the clash this weekend due to ankle injury.

Meanwhile, Jack Cork was forced off with an injury against Aston Villa in Burnley’s last game and could be a doubt.

Everton team news vs Burnley

Everton will be hoping Andre Gomes will be available for this game.

The Portuguese midfielder has missed several weeks of action due to injury.

Marco Silva revealed last week that Gomes could be in contention for this game, and this was confirmed on Thursday in the pre-Burnley presser.

The other injury problem for Everton is Jean-Philippe Gbamin.

The Ivorian has been out since picking up an injury in the clash with Watford and should miss the trip to Burnley.

Theo Walcott was forced off with concussion against Manchester City, and despite returning to training, could be a doubt.
