In a battle for quite possibly the last European place in the league table, Burnley will host Everton at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Both sides have struggled to pick up results in the recent weeks, Burnley more so. The Clarets are without a win in their last eleven league games. They come into this game on the back of a 1-1 home draw against Southampton.
The Clarets remain seventh in the table with 37 points. However, a failure to pick up three points on Saturday could see Leicester City eclipse them in the table.
The Toffees are placed ninth in the table with 34 points. A win on Saturday will see them move level on points with the Clarets. However, we don’t see this happening as the Toffees have been terrible on road this season. They have managed to win their last two home games, but they have the third-worst away record in the league.
They have lost their last four away games, and they come into this game following a 1-0 defeat at Watford last weekend.
In the first league game between these two sides this season, Burnley claimed a 1-0 win at Goodison Park, thanks to the goal from Jeff Hendrick.
