We’ve earned our manner into it, and stored in there with good planning and good preparation and plenty of onerous work – not simply on my own, I’ve a very good workers and group of gamers. Our harm record is getting higher and stronger, that’s been affecting us in fact. We’ve bought to get again to performances like Palace, after we have been on the entrance foot early within the recreation and defended resolutely.”

Everton’s seven-game profitable sequence in the beginning of the season appears a very long time in the past now. Since then, they’ve performed six matches, all within the Premier League, shedding 4, drawing one and profitable one other, and so they made onerous work of that towards struggling Fulham.
On the face of it, a go to to second-from-bottom Burnley seems a perfect alternative to regain a few of that misplaced momentum. Particularly as Sean Dyche – 200 Premier League video games up in the present day! – is presiding over a aspect who’ve misplaced six of their opening 9, have solely scored two objectives of their final eight, and have been battered 5-0 at Manchester Metropolis final weekend.
But it surely’s hardly truthful to evaluate a crew on a efficiency away at Metropolis. Earlier than that, they’d drawn at Brighton and picked up their first three-pointer of the season at house to Crystal Palace. Indicators that the Burnley of outdated was starting to awaken from its slumber. Moreover, Everton don’t normally fancy it at Turf Moor, having misplaced 4 of their final six league matches there, and did not preserve a clear sheet on their final 22 visits, a run stretching again to 1958. 1958!
Maybe extra related: Burnley gained this fixture 1-0 final 12 months, whereas Everton smashed it 5-1 the 12 months earlier than, an exception that very a lot shatters the rule. So good luck calling this one appropriately, although with each groups determined for the assertion victory that’d get their season again on monitor, this could possibly be nice enjoyable. It’s on!
