everton1819Wednesday's English Premier League action comes from Turf Moor and its game of huge significance as Burnley host Everton





Note, odds are correct at the time of writing but are subject to change




Burnley were beaten 2-0 at home by Manchester City last weekend, a fourth straight defeat and they have failed to score a goal in that sequence. Two of just 3 league wins this season had arrived in February, at Brighton and at home to Spurs and their only other 3 point haul came at home to Brentford at the end of October. They have been missing skipper Ben Mee in recent weeks and he is a reportedly highly doubtful for this game.


This is a catch up game for Burnley who are second from bottom, 3 points clear of Norwich, 1 shy of Watford and 4 adrift of Everton. Both Burnley and Everton have 2 games in hand on the other 2 sides. After this Burnley will visit Norwich so it's a huge week in the relegation battle.




Everton went down 2-1 at West Ham last Sunday and with just 7 points taken from their last 14 league games their slide continues. A red card for Michael Keane when they were 2-1 down but with more than half an hour remaining didn't help their cause and Everton have been reduced to 10 men in each of their last 3 league games.


Everton won their most recent EPL home game, 1-0 against Newcastle but with just 1 win, 3 draws and 10 defeats from 14 road trips it is their away form causing the most alarm.


On the team news from Allan and Michael Keane are both suspended.

The Betting


Burnley are currently 1.55/1 to win the game with the draw at 2.15/1 and Everton can be backed at a shade under 2/1


A game of 3 goals or more is priced at 12/10 and it's 9/10 for both teams to score.

The Verdict:


This is such a big game and it warrants a preview but I must admit to having little faith in either side and finding a bet is no easy task.


After much consideration I will side with both teams to score? (yes). The stats would suggest I have no chance but I don't trust either team to keep a clean sheet in a high stakes game.


Bets: Both teams to score? (yes) at 9/10
