Everton vs Burnley

Everton will hand late fitness tests to defenders Phil Jagielka and Michael Keane as they aim to appease the Goodison Park faithful, which rang out boos at the end of their 2-2 draw with Apollon on Thursday. Fortunately, they are up against Burnley, who they have won all past three meetings here. Burnley have performed courageously on their travels this campaign, getting a win at Chelsea and drawing with Tottenham and Liverpool. Should they win this match, they will surpass their away points tally of last season (7 points).


Match Stats:

  • Everton 0-1 Burnley
  • Shots: 14-3
  • Possession: 63%-37%
  • Corner kicks: 9-3

Burnley moved into the top six of the Premier League as they continued their superb away form with a 1-0 success at Everton.

Unbeaten at Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool this season, Burnley led through Jeff Hendrick's composed finish after Stephen Ward made the 24th pass of a brilliant team move on 21 minutes.

In response, Gylfi Sigurdsson's shot lacked power to beat Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope in the first half.

Oumar Niasse, making his first PL start of 2017/18 after his winning double against AFC Bournemouth, headed off target and Ashley Williams' effort was deflected wide as Everton could not find a way past a resolute Burnley defence led by man-of-the-match James Tarkowski.

Burnley are sixth on 13 points, while Everton drop to 16th with seven points this term.
