Everton vs Burnley Prediction & Betting tips
On Friday-evening, the second-to-last game in the Premier League starts. Everton and Burnley then meet at Goodison Park. Everton can theoretically qualify for the Europa League, while Burnley has already played football.
In fact, the season is almost over for Everton. The Toffees are in ninth place in the Premier League and would love to finish in seventh place, because that probably means Europa League qualification. That only seems like an impossible task, because Everton still has to pass Leicester City and Wolverhampton in the last two games. Since the gap with Wolverhampton is already four points, Everton must win the last two games and hope that both Leicester City and Wolverhampton will not win any of their last games. That is only unlikely to happen.
At Everton they have left it the last few weeks. Halfway through April, The Toffees lost 2-0 to relegated Fulham and last weekend Everton got no further than a scoreless draw to visit Crystal Palace. On the other hand, Everton won in the last three home games against Chelsea (2-0), Arsenal (1-0) and Manchester United (4-0). In the two previous games at Goodison Park, Everton grabbed a point against Liverpool (0-0) and lost it to Manchester City 0-2. In short: in recent weeks Everton only played top teams from the Premier League in home games and achieved excellent results in those games.
Since the previous round, Burnley is assured of another season of Premier League football on Turf Moor, and rightly so. Burnley had a hard time in the Premier League in recent months, but The Clarets have too much quality to relegate to the Championship. Moreover, Sean Dyche has pulled his Burnley out of a deep trough, because The Clarets started dramatically in the first months of the season. The last few weeks Burnley looks just like Burnley last season, when every team had a hard time with The Clarets.
Of the last five games Burnley played, only one was lost. After victories over Wolverhampton (2-0), AFC Bournemouth (1-3), Cardiff City (2-0) and a draw against Chelsea (2-2), Burnley fell down last weekend against Manchester City: 0-1. In the Premier League there is no video referee present yet, but there is goal line technology and Burnley did the trick against Manchester City. On the other hand, it was not that Burnley was entitled to a result against Manchester City, because The Clarets mainly defended. For example, Burnley fired only two shots against Manchester City, which is Burnley’s lowest number ever in a Premier League match.
