Everton vs Burnley: prediction for the English Premier League fixture
Last season Everton had been very promising, but they could only finish in the middle of the table. Everton won 17 games and drew 8, which put them on the tenth line. Everton's main problem was a lack of creativity in the attack: the Toffees scored only 47 goals in the season.
Rafa Benitez was hired as the new manager, and the club also signed Demarai Gray for 2 million.
At the start of the new season, Everton defeated Southampton (3:1) and drew with Leeds (2:2). Before the international break, the Toffees got a clean-sheet away victory over Brighton (2:0).
Rafa Benitez will be unable to call upon the services of midfielders Delph and Davies. James Rodriguez is in quarantine.
Burnley achieved the main task for the last season: they avoided relegation from the Premier League. The team won 10 matches out of 38, and finished in 17th place, despite losing focus at the end of the season.
In the summer, Burnley signed Maxwel Cornetfrom Lyon (15 mln), Nathan Collins from Stoke City (14 mln), and Connor Roberts from Swansea (2,9 mln).
In the first rounds of the new season of Premier League, the Claretslost two games in a row: to Brighton (1:2) and to Liverpool (0:2). In the League Cup, the club managed to knock out Newcastle. And before the international break, Burnley earned their first Premier League point, scoring a draw with Leeds (1:1). Right now the Clarets are 18th.
Collins, Roberts, and Stevens are unavailable for this fixture.
In 4 of the last 6 head-to-head games, goals were scored in both halves.
This bet played in 2 of the last 4 head-to-head games.
This bet played in the last 3 head-to-head games.
Both teams scored in the last two head-to-head games.
Burnley had a poor start in the Premier League and most likely will fight for survival this season. Everton, on the other hand, have good chances to get close to the top five, but to do that, they will need all the points they can get. They are a stronger team and just have to beat Burnley at home.
Our prediction - Everton to win.
Last year, Everton couldn't beat Burnley, but today the hosts are in great shape and have loads of motivation. We suggest taking a risk and betting on the victory of the Toffees with a two-goal margin.
Second bet - Everton to win by 2 goals.
