Everton will look to extend their winning run in their next game in the Premier League when they meet Burnley in their own backyard. The Merseyside club will look to dominate the proceedings from the word go and will look to get a much-needed win for them against their Premier League rivals, who are in good form of late.
The Toffees have been in all sorts of disarray since the inception of the season and have faced consecutive defeats in their third, fourth and fifth matches, which pushed them down the pecking order into the dreaded relegation zone for a brief period. However, an inspiring performance from their Senegalese striker Oumar Niasse, who came off the bench to score a brace, handed them a desired win in their last match against Bournemouth and they will look to carry their winning form in their next match as well.
Ronald Koeman, the Everton gaffer, has switched to the four-man defence after the failure of his strategy to go with three defenders in the backline. There is doubt over the fitness of Michael Keane and Phil Jagielka, who will have to go through fitness tests before the match to be considered for the starting lineup and might be replaced by Jonjoe Kenny.
Among others, there might be the captain Leighton Baines, Ashley Williams and Mason Holgate to start the proceedings for the Toffees in their match against Burnley. Jordan Pickford will start in the goal for them.
There has been lack of composure among the midfielders for the Toffees in the last few matches, which they will have to leave behind while vying for the ball in the middle of the pitch in their next fixture. It will not be an easy task against the Clarets to keep hold of the ball for long and each one of their players including Morgan Schneiderlin, Idrissa Gueye and Davy Klaassen will have to be at their best to help their team win the match.
Koeman switched to the three-man forward line in their last match in the Premier League and might stick to the same formation with Wayne Rooney leading their attack against the Clarets.
He will have to be aptly supported by Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who will be playing a major role to get them their third win of the season. The hero of the last match, Oumar Niasse, however, might be starting from the bench once again.
