- Everton’s strong start to the season under Rafael Benitez continued in their final fixture before the international break as they beat Brighton 0-2 away from home, taking them to seven points from a possible nine.
- Benitez will be hoping that striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is fit enough to start for the Toffees with the 24-year-old having scored in all three Premier League games so far this season, although new signing Salomon Rondon could slot straight into Calvert-Lewin’s position if required, whilst versatile defender Ben Godfrey could come straight back into fold after having been out following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
- Burnley secured their first point of this season’s Premier League last time out against Leeds Utd, although manager Sean Dyche will be disappointed that it wasn’t all three after they conceded an equalising goal inside the final five minutes.
- New €15m man Maxwell Cornet could make his debut for the Clarets here after joining from French side Lyon late in the summer transfer window, although fellow newcomer Connor Roberts is a doubt through injury.

Whilst a number of fans predicted that Everton would struggle this season with former Liverpool boss Benitez in charge, the Spaniard has proven those people wrong so far with his side unbeaten after three Premier League games. It is important for the Toffees to keep up their good momentum and with fans behind them at Goodison Park, they have an excellent opportunity to do just that against Burnley. Whilst it’s never an easy game against Dyche’s men, Everton certainly boast the superior all-round ability within their squad and provided they maintain a high standard of effort against such diligent opposition, then a home win here is on the cards.
Tip: EVERTON TO WIN
