Burnley are going to host Everton in a match from the 8th round
We are heading to the Turf Moor, because on Saturday Burnley are going to host Everton in a match from the 8th round of the Premier League. Let’s see what’s the situation here in our English Premier League predictions.
After seven games played in the league so far, Burnley are currenty 11th in the standings with 9 points won. Right now their record in the league shows two wins, three draws and two defeats.
What about Burnley’s current form? In their last five games Sean Dyche’s boys won only once – against Norwich City at the Turf Moor. They also made three draws and lost once.
A week ago Burnley visited the newcomer Aston Villa at the Villa Park, winning a point after a 2-2 draw. Jay Rodriguez and Chris Woods scored for the visitors, who should be happy with the point. Just 10 minutes behind the end Burnley were a goal behind in Birmingham.
For a second consecutive season, Everton are between mediocre and average under the management of Marco Silva. The Portuguese manager left a good impression at Watford, but at the Goodison Park it seems that things are not working well for him. Right now Everton are 15th in the standings with 7 points, being just two points above the relegation zone.
Just take a look at Everton’s performance at the moment. In their last five games in the Premier League, the Toffees won only once and suffered four losses. It’s a miracle that Marco Silva is still not sacked. It seems that the board’s patience is pretty big, because this performance is just unacceptable.
In our English Premier League predictions we think that this might be Marco Silva’s last game as Everton manager. Playing against Burnley at the Turf Moor is pretty difficult, so a team with Everton’s problems could easily suffered a defeat there.
