Everton vs Burnley Prediction
Everton shared the spoils for the second time on the trot last week after Arsenal managed to keep the scores tied at 0-0. Despite registering more shots at goal, the hosts failed to have their scoring boots on and miserably finished the ninety minutes with zero attempts on target.
Nevertheless, the home side are unbeaten in their last three games in the Premier League. The Toffees, who at one point looked sure to head into the relegation zone, are now sitting fourteenth on the ladder with nineteen points to their name.
Meanwhile, Burnley will be making the trip to Goodison Park this week on the back of a two-match winning streak. Their previous clash on the road, saw them edge past Bournemouth with a 1-0 scorecard. While at home, they secured all three points against the Magpies after Chris Wood scored the only goal of the game.
It is also worth mentioning that Burnley have looked far from convincing in most of their outings this term. The guests have just two wins to their name so far and have admitted defeat in half of their last four as well.
To make matters worse, Burnley have come out on top just once in their past five visits here. On the other hand, Everton have stumbled just thrice in front of the home crowd so far.
As such, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of the Toffees in this one.
Furthermore, racking up the goal scoring charts on the road, has just not been Burnley’s cup of tea. The visitors have failed to get their names on the scoresheets in two of their last five outings.
At the same time, Everton, have kept a clean sheet thrice at home. They have also conceded just four goals from their past five games here.
Taking into account that four of their last five h2h clashes at this venue have also been low scoring affairs, count on Everton to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
