Everton vs Burnley Predictions and Betting Tips
The Toffees would be looking to continue their fine start to the season as they welcome Burnley to the Goodison Park on Monday night. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
The Clarets were 2-1 winners in the most recent meeting between both sides back in March. This would only be their second in six against the Merseyside club who have managed three wins during this short period. With both sides pretty much cancelling each other out in recent times, who secures maximum points for themselves ?
Benitez and his boys keen on continuing from where they left off
Although some of the Everton faithful weren't initially happy with the decision to bring in former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez, the Spaniard is slowly but surely winning those hearts given his side's flying start to the season. Either side of their 2-2 draw away at the Elland Road, Benitez led his troops to comfortable wins against Southampton and Brighton. This record of seven points from a possible nine puts them in 5th place and we firmly expect them to aim at the continuation of their unbeaten run as they welcome a stubborn Burnley side to Liverpool.
It's yet another slow start to the season for The Clarets as they head into their fourth league game of the season still in search of their first win. Last time out against Leeds United, it looked like they've done all that was needed for maximum points as they went into the final 10 minutes of the game in front- Wood having put them ahead in the 61t minute. It wasn't to be, however, as a Bamford tap-in meant they would have to share the spoils with Bielsa's Lilywhites. It took The Clarets eight games until they recorded their first win of the 2020/2021 campaign. Is it going to be De javu for the Burnley faithful ?
