Everton will look to make it eight Premier League wins on the bounce at Goodison Park when they take on away strugglers Burnley on Saturday.

Ronald Koeman's men are looking to trump struggling Arsenal to sixth place and are currently tied on points with the Gunners, though their rivals have two games in hand.

GAME PREVIEW

Burnley are still looking for their first away win in the Premier League this season - and there are few places it is less likely to come than at Everton.

The Toffees have won every single game they have played in the top flight at Goodison Park since their December 19 loss to Liverpool, a span of seven matches that has seen them score 26 goals.

The plentiful supply of chances on offer on home turf has helped Romelu Lukaku into a clear lead in the race for the Golden Boot, and the Belgian has also been nominated for the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year awards.

While Sean Dyche's men face an uphill struggle to claim three points, though, this may not be the walkover that the stats suggest. Burnley have not actually lost by more than a single goal on their travels since December 3, and after being unfortunate to be beaten at Liverpool they picked up draws at Sunderland and Middlesbrough.

Fortunately, the Clarets have been strong enough at home to be in with a chance of a top-half finish. Everton, meanwhile, are looking to capitalise on Arsenal's failings to sneak into sixth.
