The Premier League match between Burnley and Everton at Turf Moor is set to be a crucial one, especially in the context of the relegation battle. Everton, led by manager Sean Dyche, are in a comfortable position compared to their opponents, thanks to a recent upturn in form. They have won their last three Premier League matches and are four points clear of the relegation zone.
This impressive form includes a 6-0 aggregate scoreline in their last three matches. If they manage to win this one, it would mark their first time winning four consecutive games without conceding since
Burnley, on the other hand, are in a more precarious situation. They are currently 19th in the league with only eight points and have suffered the joint-highest number of defeats in the league this season. Despite this, they have shown some resilience in their recent matches, securing four points from their last three Premier League games and improving their performance in the opening 13 matches of the season.
The match carries additional narrative weight as Everton’s manager, Sean Dyche, returns to his former club, Burnley. He spent a decade at Turf Moor, shaping Burnley into a Premier League team before being let go in a bid to avoid relegation last season. This background adds an emotional dimension to the game, with Dyche likely keen to prove a point against his former club.
Tip & Prediction
In terms of betting, while Everton seems likelier to win, the suspension of key players like Jarrad Branthwaite and Idrissa Gueye might affect their defensive solidity. Burnley have scored in five of their eight home games this season, suggesting they will likely find the net. Betting on both teams to score (BTTS) is a favourable option. Additionally, Everton has developed a pattern of being level at halftime and securing a win in their recent matches, making the HT/FT market an exciting bet.
The prediction for this match leans towards a 2-0 victory for Everton, considering their recent form and Burnley’s struggles this season. This match is crucial for both teams, particularly for Burnley, who must start accumulating points to escape the relegation zone. With their recent form, Everton will look to further distance themselves from the relegation battle.
