Burnley vs Everton: Top free betting tips
Burnley face a must-win game on Saturday evening when they take on Everton Turf Moor. Pressure is building on Vincent Kompany and the Clarets are now five points behind Everton, who are sitting just above the relegation zone. Our Burnley vs Everton prediction is for Everton to push themselves further away from the drop zone with another away win.
Match result prediction: Everton to win
On one hand, the ten-point deduction Everton received was harsh and unjust but on the other, it has seemingly brought the club back to life and they are enjoying their best run of form in several years. They have won four of their last five Premier League matches and their last three on the road. Burnley, meanwhile, have only won at home once all season.
Clean sheet prediction: Everton, yes
Sean Dyche will go back to his old stomping ground on Saturday evening with a point to prove after being sacked by Burnley 18 months ago. His Burnley side were renowned for being hard to score against and his Everton side are beginning to show similar traits. They haven't conceded a goal in their last three league matches and only Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool have conceded fewer goals all season.
Correct score prediction: Burnley 0-2 Everton
Everton have been really impressive lately with Abdoulaye Doucouré having the season of his life in the number ten role behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin. They have found a system that works for them and it should thrive against an erratic Burnley team who refuse to tighten up despite all the evidence suggesting they need to.
Burnley vs Everton team news
Burnley predicted lineup vs Everton
Charlie Taylor picked up a booking in Burnley's draw with Brighton meaning the full-back will miss his first game of the season on Saturday. Connor Roberts may have to move across to left-back to fill the void left behind by Taylor and Vitinho will come into the side at right-back. In terms of injuries, Josh Cullen will face a late fitness test but Jack Cork and Luca Koleosho are both definitely out.
Trafford – Vitinho, O'Shea, Beyer, Roberts – Berge, Brownhill, Gudmundsson, Odobert – Amdouni – Rodriguez
Everton predicted lineup vs Burnley
Everton boss, Sean Dyche will want to keep the same eleven players together if possible for this one but he does have a few considerations. For starters, Ashley Young has picked up a knock and will miss the trip to Burnley while Gueye and Branthwaite are both suspended due to bookings. Nathan Patterson is expected to come in for Young and Amadou Onana will slot in for Gueye. At centre back, Dyche will choose between Keane and Godfrey.
Pickford – Patterson, Tarkowski, Godfrey, Mykolenko – Harrison, Garner, Onana, McNeil – Doucoure – Calvert-Lewin

Toffees looking forward to seeing more of Patterson
Nathan Patterson was outstanding today after coming on. He needs and deserves a run in the side now.

How far will Everton fans travel to Burnley?
Everton supporters have one of their shortest away days of the season on Saturday evening when they travel to Turf Moor. The trip is around an hour via car or coach which is by far the quickest method of getting to Burnley from Turf Moor. Everton fans taking the train will have to go to Manchester and swap if they are insistent on using the railway.
