Everton vs Burnley Prediction & Match Preview



13 March 2021 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET Premier League Goodison Park

Everton will be looking to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Chelsea when they welcome Burnley at their Goodison Park on Matchday 28.

The Toffees failed to impress in the Stamford Bridge defeat, but they are surely capable of beating the Clarets on home soil. 

In their last home game in the Premier League Everton defeated Southampton thanks to Richarlison’s goal, and that is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Burnley. 

Mina, Delph, and Gbamin remain in the recovery room, while both Rodriguez and Coleman are rated doubtful for the match.

The Clarets were more than fortunate to share the spoils with Arsenal at the weekend, with Granit Xhaka’s error helping Chris Wood score the equalizing goal. 

Since Everton are eager to keep their Champions League hopes alive, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Carlo Ancelotti’s men. Ashley Barnes should be the only absentee in the away team.

Team News:

Everton quartet James Rodriguez, Fabian Delph, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are all unavailable through injury, while there are also doubts over Gylfi Sigurdsson and Robin Olsen.

Ancelotti may decide to revert to a four-man defence after using Alex Iwobi as a right wing-back against Chelsea last weekend. As a result, midfielder Tom Davies could come into the starting lineup to replace the Nigerian with Mason Holgate or Seamus Coleman filling in at right-back.

Richarlison has scored four goals in his last four home games in all competitions, and the Brazilian is expected to operate alongside Calvert-Lewin once again in the final third of the field.

As for Burnley, they will be without striker Ashley Barnes, who scored the winning goal the last time the Clarets played on Merseyside, beating Liverpool at Anfield in January.

Charlie Taylor and Jack Cork are both doubts and will be assessed ahead of kickoff, but the match may come too soon for Cork in particular to recover from a tight hamstring.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Robbie Brady and Matej Vydra all recovered from injury to play a part in Burnley's draw with Arsenal last weekend, with the Icelandic winger the most likely to feature in Dyche's starting XI this weekend.

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Holgate, Godfrey, Keane, Digne; Davies, Allan, Gomes; Sigurdsson; Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison

Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Rodriguez, Wood
