PREDICTION
Burnley have not won any of their last 11 Premier League outings but still they cling onto seventh place in the Premier League. This speaks volumes on two levels. Firstly they had an incredibly impressive start to the season and secondly it shows the quality of the teams below them as no team has been able to wrestle away their current league position.

One of those sides that sits below them but more importantly has their own desires of finishing seventh with the possible Europa League reward that it will offer is Everton; they lie in ninth and are just three points behind Sean Dyche’s men. However, the Merseyside outfit have only won twice in their last six league outings and there is not a lot to split the two sides. The barren run of results may not end for Burnley this weekend, but they are at least decent value for a point in front of their own fans.

MEMORABLE MEETING
Burnley’s first ever Premier League meeting with Everton was undoubtedly a memorable one for their supporters as they picked up all three points at Turf Moor early in the 2009-10 season. With the fixture being played in the late Summer sunshine it was Wade Elliott who earned the plaudits as the midfielder scored the game’s only goal to give the Clarets an historic victory.
