PREVIEW: Everton vs Burnley – 01/10/17
Everton vs Burnley
TV: Sky Sports Premier League
Everton and Burnley meet in a game that both sides will be desperate to win at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Burnley who are undefeated in their last four fixtures will be looking to get their third win of the season, whilst Everton will be looking to gain momentum after beating Bournemouth last week.
Everton fans may see a first Premier League start in 20 months for Omar Niasse who scored twice in the Toffees victory last weekend. Wayne Rooney looks to start despite injuring his hand in Thursday’s Europa League tie. However, Everton may be without centre-backs Jagielka and Keane.
However, Everton still look far from the finished product and Koeman is still attempting to find the answers to a struggling team. A disappointing result in Europe sees more questions being asked by the Everton fans.
Burnley will be without Jon Walters and Nakhi Wells leaving them with Chris Woods. Welshman Sam Vokes is also hoping to get back into the squad.
Burnley’s defensive resilience and organisation may cause problems for an attack that have been struggling to score goals.
Burnley fans may see a draw as a positive result but the Claret’s will be desperate to end a run of draws with a win. A win would make it Burnley’s second at Goodison Park since 1963, losing 10 of the previous 14 encounters.
