Everton vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Friday, 3rd May 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Everton has built quite a bit of confidence after defeating Arsenal and Manchester United in the span of last four match-days.
Importantly, the win against United was for a scoreline of 4-0, and for sure the team would like to conclude their season on a positive note.
It’d be greater if they could manage to improve their league standing, and considering Leicester next takes on Manchester City, chances are high for that to happen.
Burnley is safe from the relegation threat, despite their lower-tier placing. Moreover, they thoroughly impressed in their game against table-toppers City last day.
At one point, it looked as if they had done the needful for City to drop points, and thus give Liverpool the advantage in the title race. But Manchester held on to register a 1-0 win.

Everton vs Burnley Prediction
Everton was unbeaten in five of their last six games and won four of them as well. At home, they are on a winning streak of three ties, and the three matches were against Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.
Curiously, the team took on six of the best seven teams in England right now, in their last six home ties. Other than the three already mentioned, they also took on Liverpool, Manchester City and Wolves.
They can find immense pride in the fact that they kept four clean sheets in a row at home, against Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.
Going on, Burnley was winless in 19 of their last 23 ties, and they hold an inferior h2h record against this opponent. Five of the last eight h2h wins were registered by Everton, and they won three of the last four encounters at this venue as well.
Importantly, Everton found the back of the net in seven of the last eight h2h games.
As such, the hosts should take the win. But only one of the h2h fixtures at this venue has ever seen more than two goals or both teams on the scorecard.
Also, Burnley will be particular to keep their defensive momentum going after limiting Pep Guardiola’s side to just one goal.
Therefore, expect a home win, but not more than two goals in the game.
