THE TEAM NEWS

EVERTON

  • Everton come into this match against Burnley managed by Carlo Ancelotti after the Italian was named as their new manager on Saturday.
  • Ancelotti will not be able to count on Iwobi who picked up a hamstring problem against his former club Arsenal and misses out here.
  • That will likely see Bernard come into the side out wide although it remains to be seen how Ancelotti will line-up in his first game.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Pickford; Sidibe, Mina, Holgate, Digne; Sigurdsson, Davies, Delph; Bernard, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison

Unavailable: Gbamin (Injured), Andre Gomes (Injured), Walcott (Injured), Schneiderlin (Injured), Iwobi (Injured)

Doubtful: Banangime (Injured)

BURNLEY

  • Burnley picked up a second consecutive 1-0 win at the weekend as they edged past Bournemouth to move into mid-table coming into this game.
  • Sean Dyche is forced into one change as Hendrick is ruled out after picking up his fifth booking so Lennon will likely come in on the right.
  • The only other possible change could come in attack as Rodriguez may be rewarded for his winner and come in at the expense of Barnes.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Pope; Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Lennon, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Rodriguez, Wood

Unavailable: Hendrick (Suspended)

Doubtful: Gudmundsson (Injured), Gibson (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Goodison Park will be buzzing for the first match under Carlo Ancelotti as they look to build on the good form they produced under caretaker Duncan Ferguson. Burnley come to town with solid form themselves but the hosts may just have too much for them in this bright new era on Merseyside.
