Soccer Everton

Everton was established in 1878 and the club is among the founding members of the English Premier League in 1992. The Toffees have played in the top division of English football for a record of 116 years while missing only four seasons of EPL action since the Football League was created in 1888. They have won the League Championship a total of nine times, 4th most all-time. They have also won the FA Cup five times and the UEFA Winners Cup once.

Everton has struggled to find the right manager in their long history with caretakers coming in and out with frequency. They are hoping that their current manager, Marco Silva, is the right man for the job after he led them to an 8th place finish in the final table last season With the squad in better health this year as compared to the previous one, Everton looks ready to exceed last season’s accomplishments.

Everton is ranked 16th in the Premier League in Goal Difference at -4 goals. They have scored five goals this season ( tied for 16th overall ) and have yielded a total of nine goals during this term ( tied for 12th overall). Everton also ranks 12th in the league with a total of five assists this year.

Richarlison has found success early in the season with two goals and one assist in six appearances. Fellow midfielders Bernard, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Alex Iwobi have scored one goal each for Everton. Defender Lucas Digne leads the team with two assists on the season while goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has conceded nine goals with 11 saves in six appearances.

Soccer Who Wins?

Burnley currently ranks 10th in the EPL standings. They opened their season with a win over Southampton, a loss to Arsenal and a draw against Wolverhampton. They suffered their worst loss of the season in round 4, dropping a 0-3 contest to Liverpool but have not lost since then. They drew with Brighton, beat Norwich and forced a draw with Aston Villa in their most recent outing.

Everton is 15th in the current EPL standings with their 2-1-4 record. Everton has lost three matches in a row after beating Wolverhampton in round 4. They were beaten by Bournemouth 1-3, South Hampton 0-2 and in their last outing, they were defeated by the defending EPL champions Manchester City 1-3. Despite their recent form, Everton is the soccer betting favorite to beat Burnley.

Head to head, Everton has won six out of their last 10 meetings. Meanwhile, Burnley has won four matches during that period Everton has gone unbeaten in their last three encounters, going 2-0-1 SU over that span. In their most recent match, Everton blanked Burnley 2-0 here at Turf Moor last May 3, 2019.

Don’t let their recent form discourage you. Everton was a Top-10 team last season and they certainly are in the same level this season. Both these teams aren’t explosive with their attack and both have issues with their defense. Burnley heads to this match with better form and is playing at Turf Moor. I like how many things are going for them right now. I’m going with the home team here. Prediction: Burnley
