Everton endured an embarrassing loss at Goodison Park in their last encounter against Tottenham Hotspur. The north London side thrashed them 2-6, with Dele Alli, Heung Min Son, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen scoring the goals for Spurs. However, the Toffees will need to put this hard-hitting experience aside when they take on Burnley in their next match at Turf Moor.
The Clarets are also coming off a disappointing 3-1 defeat against Arsenal in their last match at the Emirates and would look to bounce back to winning ways in their next game as well. Both the sides are having a hard time in the Premier League this season and would look to get the better of their opponents, which is sure to make this encounter an interesting one.
More bad news for Marco Silva might be on the way as he might not be able to field any of his seasoned central midfielders in the match against Burnley. Both Idrissa Gana Gueye (who also missed the game against Tottenham) and Andre Gomes (currently nursing an injury) might not be available for selection for the crucial clash against the Clarets.
It was a night to forget for Jordan Pickford who made a series of errors as his side experienced one of the worst defeats in their history. However, he will have to put the disappointment aside and show why he is still the England number 1 when he takes his place under the crossbar against Burnley.
The duo of Kurt Zouma and Michael Keane would need to get their act together in the heart of the backline after the disappointment of the last match. Seamus Coleman would start in the right-hand side of the defence while Lucas Digne would keep his place on the left.
With both Gueye and Gomes expected to be out with injuries, Morgan Schneiderlin and Tom Davies would have to start in central midfield for the Toffees. Theo Walcott, who broke the deadlock with an elegant finish in the last match, would begin on the right while Richarlison would put in a shift from the left. Gylfi Sigurdsson should start as the attacking midfielder behind the striker.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin would lead the line for the Toffees against the Clarets.
Predicted Formation: 4-4-1-1
