English Premier League, Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 1st October 2017
Kick-off at 14:15 UK/ 15:15 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Everton were handed a huge morale boost with the comeback win against Bournemouth last weekend. The team was struggling since the opening day win against Stoke City and impressive draw against Manchester City. They had lost three on the bounce without scoring before Omar Niasse scored twice in the final minutes to complete a 2-1 win for the Blues.
The Toffees can now take confidence from their home record as they bagged 2 wins from the three games at the Goodison Park. The lone defeat came against Tottenham, who has been exceptional in away games this season.
On the other hand, Burnley are coming with a totally different outlook. The team had three difficult away fixtures so far and didn’t lost any of them. The run started off on matchday 1 with a 3-2 win against Chelsea and then back-to-back draws at Tottenham and Liverpool. So, they can be count up on as a dangerous away side.
The Clarets were beaten just once in the Premier League season, with their remaining 5 matches split across 2 wins and 3 draws. The major improvement as compared to the start of the last season is certainly their away form.

Everton vs Burnley: Prediction
Everton will have the confidence to get a positive result after finishing strongly against Bournemouth last week. Yet, their inability to create enough scoring chances could dent their chances here. Especially when Burnley are a team that sit deep and defend in games away from home. Also, the visitors had already bagged points from their three away games, all coming against elite teams in the league.
So, there is every chance for this match to end in a stalemate, which could eventually end Everton’s three match winning run at home against the Clarets.
