Everton vs Burnley: Things have certainly not gone as planned for Everton this season. However, with the advantage at home and the likes of Carlo Ancelotti pulling the ropes of the shelter this Thursday, count on the hosts to settle for nothing but victory.
Everton split the loot for the second time jogging last week after Arsenal managed to keep the scores tied 0-0. Despite recording more shots on goal, the hosts were unable to put on their branded shoes and finished the ninety minutes with zero attempts at target shooting.
However, the home team is undefeated in their last three Premier League games. The Toffees, who at one time seemed sure of heading for the relegation zone, are now fourteen on the stairs with nineteen points in their name.
Meanwhile, Burnley will make the trip to Goodison Park this week after a streak of two consecutive wins. Their previous road crash saw them overtake Bournemouth with a score of 1-0. At home, they scored three points against the Magpies after Chris Wood scored the only goal of the game.
It should also be mentioned that Burnley seemed far from convincing in most of his releases this quarter. The guests so far have only had two victories and have also recognized defeat in the middle of their last four games.
To make matters worse, Burnley has won only once in his last five visits here. On the other hand, Everton has tripped up three times in front of the local crowd so far.
As such, it is more than likely that victory bends in favor of the Toffees in this.
Also, accumulating the ranking of goals along the way was not Burnley’s cup of tea. The visitors have not been able to put their names on the game sheets in two of their last five outings.
At the same time, Everton, kept a blank sheet three times at home. They have also conceded only four goals in their last five games here.
Given that four of your last five h2h matches on this site have also been low-scoring agreements, count on Everton to conclude things with no more than one goal or two at most.
