Burnley 

Burnley will look to get back to winning ways when they welcome Everton to Turf Moor in midweek.

After going three matches unbeaten in February, the Clarets endured a poor run of form this past month, losing all three games they played in March. They have begun April with a loss too, as they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester City, last time out.

The loss made it four straight losses for Sean Dyche’s side and extended their winless run to five games in the league (D1, L4).

With ten games left for them to play, they are running out of time to get themselves off the relegation zone where they currently sit. They currently sit in 19th place, four points behind Everton, who are just above the relegation place.

A win in this match will reduce that deficit to one point and offer them some hope that they could pull off a great escape.

Possible Burnley starting line-up

Nick Pope; Connor Roberts, James Tarkowski, Kevin Long, Charlie Taylor; Ashley Westwood, James Cork, Josh Brownhill; Aaron Lennon, Dwight McNeil, Wout Weghorst.

Injured: Erik Pieters, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Ben Mee

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None 

Everton 

Everton will look to bounce back from their defeat to West Ham on Wednesday when they travel to Lancashire to face Burnley.

The Toffees come into this tie on the back of a disappointing loss to West Ham in the Premier League. In an entertaining game at the Olympic Stadium, the hosts took the lead through a sublime Aaron Cresswell free-kick in the first half, before Mason Holgate equalised for Everton just after the break. 

But the returning Jarrod Bowen put West Ham ahead in the 58th minute before Michael Keane’s red card for an offensive tackle ended the visitor’s chances of getting a result from the game. 

The red card was Everton’s third red card in their last three games, underlining the indiscipline Frank Lampard must deal with amid a poor run of form that has seen his side lose seven times in the eleven games he has played as Everton boss. 

With just three points separating them from 18th-placed Watford, who have played two games more, the visitors will be desperate to get a win in this game to put some clear distance between them and the bottom three as the season nears its end. 

After beating Burnley 3-1 in the reverse fixture and considering the form of their hosts, Everton will fancy their chances of getting something from this game. 

Possible Everton starting line-up

Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, Mason Holgate, Jarrad Branthwaite, Vitaliy Mykolenko; Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Alex Iwobi; Demarai Gray, Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Injured: Tom Davies, Fabian Delph, Andros Townsend, Yerry Mina

Doubtful: Donny van de Beek 

Suspended: Michael Keane 

Prediction

Burnley 1-2 Everton
