Burnley v Everton: match preview

·1-min read

Burnley escaped from the bottom three with their first win of the season against Crystal Palace, only to be plunged back into the relegation zone when a heavy defeat at Manchester City was compounded by Fulham’s unexpected success at Leicester. Sean Dyche and his players will have to keep a wary eye on Fulham if they are going to make a habit of that sort of thing, but first they need to take something from Everton and show they are capable of restoring Turf Moor’s reputation as a difficult place to visit.
