They face the Goodison Park Stadium in Liverpool, the formation led by Ronald Koeman, Everton, and the visiting team, led by Sean Dyche, Burnley,
in the first encounter between the two teams in the current season, after a triumph for each side in the last edition of the competition. Everton has a long list of injuries,
which includes the following names: Funes Mori, Ross Barkley, Seamus Coleman, Yannick Bolasie, James McCarthy, Phil Jagielka, Michael Keane in doubt;
on the other side, Dean Marney, Nahki Wells, Tom Heaton and Jonathan Walters are in doubt as to their use.
The Liverpool team enter this journey with one of the worst start of the season in recent years and certainly the worst since Dutch coach Koeman is at the helm of the toffees,
with the team to be near the relegation places and adding less than half of the possible points in the race,
also having one of the worst attacks and also the worst averages of saves per game (Burnley, for example, has more), clearly noticing the lack of a killer like Lukaku.
On the other hand, it is one of the worst defenses of the Premier League with 11 goals conceded (only Crystal Palace, Watford and Leicester have more).
As for Burnley, he is making a quiet start to the race, getting six points out of a quarter of the points needed, theoretically,
to get the main goal, which goes through the maintenance, which leaves the team in a, until you see comfortable, 9th place, although neither of the teams that has more goals scored (all),
but being clearly one of the best defenders, having already achieved fantastic results against Tottenham and Liverpool, for example.
Everton vs Burnley Prognosis:
Given the poor defensive record of Koeman’s team (and not only in the Premier League, having still conceded twice against a humble team from Cyprus on Thursday)
I believe that Burnley has a real chance to score a goal in this match, even because he has achieved it against the strongest teams, despite being massacred in offensive terms.
In addition, the Dyche team managed to score in all away matches, totaling 7 goals in 4 games.
