Everton vs Burnley – Sunday 1st October 2017 – 14:15 - Sky Sports Football 

Everton are 8/13 with Wayne Rooney, Oumar Niasse, Sandro Ramirez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin all at 4/1 to score first.

Everton face Burnley at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon, in the second of the Super Sunday matches.

The Toffees come into this match in mixed form, after securing a 2-2 draw against Apollon Limassol on Thursday evening.

Everton's defence was exposed early again, with Adrian Sardinero putting the Cypriots ahead (12).

Wayne Rooney scored his first goal since the Manchester City draw to equalise (21), with Koeman's side handed a lifeline.

Nikola Vlasic thought he had secured the win for Everton (66), with his goal giving Everton the lead for the first time in the match.

Everton had looked to have the game wrapped up at 2-1 when Valentin Roberge was sent off (86), but Hector Yuste headed home a dramatic late leveller (88).


New Squad 

It has been a productive off season for Everton, with manager Ronald Koeman recruiting heavily.

His side have suffered heavily of late, with the squad suffering some embarrassing performances and results.

They had seemingly turned the corner after the Bournemouth result, but this latest draw is another setback for Koeman.

Everton come into this match in 14th place in the Premier League, with just seven points from their six games.


Toffees Favourites

Everton come into this match as the favourites, despite their poor recent form.

Ronald Koeman will be looking to win this fixture and secure some much-needed momentum.

Everton will be looking for a fifth win in six games against Burnley.

Tough Start

Burnley come into this match on the back of a 0-0 draw at home against Huddersfield, a mixed result for Sean Dyche's men.

Huddersfield were second best in terms of possession, with Burnley enjoying 52% of the ball at home.

But it was the visitors who made the most of their possession, with nine total shots on the Burnley goal.

They also converted two of those shots on target, twice as many as their hosts Burnley.

It is a disappointing result for the Clarets, with their campaign last year built on an excellent home record.


Great Campaign

Despite that mixed performance and result Burnley have had an excellent start to the season.

They won their opening match of the season against champions Chelsea, they are the only ones to beat the Blues.

Burnley are currently in 9th place in the Premier League, a start they could have only dreamed of.

They face a Toffees side who have struggled in their last three Premier League matches, although they were facing quality opposition.


Clarets Underdogs

Sean Dyche's side come into this match as the underdogs, despite their solid start to the season.

This will be a tough match for Burnley, but Dyche will see this as an excellent chance to secure another away win.

Burnley will be looking their second win in three matches against the Toffees.

Burnley are 19/4 with Chris Wood at 13/2 to open the scoring.
