PREVIEW: Burnley v Everton

All the build-up as the in-form Clarets return to Turf Moor to take on the Toffees

5 October 2019

The Clarets return to Turf Moor looking to extend their unbeaten run and gate-crash the Premier League top 10.

It’s early days after just seven games of the season so far.

But Burnley are looking for a third home win against an Everton side which is yet to register a league victory away from Goodison Park.

Avoiding defeat for a fourth successive game will guarantee the Clarets double-figures in points going into the second international break.

And following up a comfortable 2-0 win over Norwich City on home ground a fortnight ago with another victory could lift Sean Dyche’s men right into the ‘best of the rest’ chasing the big guns at the top end of the table.

“You want to give another good performance,” said the Burnley boss, whose side twice came from behind to earn a battling draw at Aston Villa last weekend.

“There have been three solid performances with some good points on the board and we want to go again.

“We want to take on another home game at Turf. We like that, of course, in front of our own fans. We want to take the game on, without doubt.

“We will have to perform well to take what we want – because home and away it’s just not easy. We respect everyone, but when the whistle goes, we will be ready.”

Team news

Jack Cork is set to miss just his second Premier League game for the Clarets after suffering a minor fracture to a shoulder blade in last Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Aston Villa.

Midfield colleague Danny Drinkwater is not yet ready to feature.

Everton could have midfielder Andre Gomes (above) back after the former Barcelona man missed four games with a rib injury.

And forward Theo Walcott has been passed fit to play after suffering concussion in the Toffees’ 3-1 defeat to Manchester City last Saturday.

Form guide

The Clarets are unbeaten in three games since the last international break and beat Norwich City 2-0 last time out at Turf Moor.

Everton have lost their last three Premier League games – wrapped around a League Cup win at Sheffield Wednesday.

They haven’t lost four in a row in the Premier League since January, 2015.

The Toffees have taken just one point away from home so far and sit 15th in the table.

Opposition camp

Everton manager Marco Silva:

“It will be a tough game. Not just for Everton, it is tough for everyone to play there.

“Sean Dyche is doing very good work. They are a very physical team. They want always to challenge the opponents, normally with two strong strikers.

“It is a game we must always be switched on, from the first minute. They play a direct game, with strong second balls, and we have to answer that.

“And after, when we have the ball, to show quality and create problems for them and find the right moments to attack them.

“We have to show that desire when we have the ball to create chances to win.”

Match stats

The two sides have yet to draw in the Premier League in 10 previous games. Everton have six wins to Burnley’s four.

Wood scores.jpg

Chris Wood is looking to score for the third Premier League game in a row. The last time the Clarets’ striker kicked off such a run – in March, 2018 – he did so with a goal against Everton.

The Clarets have hit the woodwork five times so far this season – the most in the division.

Burnley have scored in every one of their last 21 top-flight games against the Toffees in a run stretching back to 1958.

Everton have won 12 of their last 60 away games in the Premier League.

The Merseysiders have failed to win all 19 league games in which they have conceded first under Marco Silva.

REPORT: Burnley 1 Everton 0

Jeff Hendrick winner keeps Clarets climbing with battling win over 10-man Toffees

5 October 2019

Jeff Hendrick continued his resurgence with another winning goal against Everton to send the Clarets into the international break on a real high

Hendrick claimed the Clarets’ goal of the season two years ago with the decisive effort at Goodison Park.

And the in-form midfielder repeated the trick as he struck with another classy finish to propel Burnley into fifth place in the table on the back of a four-match unbeaten run and back-to-back Turf Moor wins.

These two sides had never drawn a Premier League game before in 10 previous meetings.

And after Everton captain Seamus Coleman had been sent off for a second bookable offence 11 minutes into the second half, Sean Dyche’s men made sure it would stay that way to extend their excellent start to the season.

The Toffees didn’t make it easy as they tried to halt their slide in the opposite direction.

But Hendrick proved the difference as he underlined the Clarets’ growing belief by volleying home his second big goal in four games to put Burnley back among the big boys.

As anticipated, Jack Cork missed only his second Premier League game as a Claret as a result of the fractured shoulder blade he suffered at Aston Villa.

A re-call for Johann Berg Gudmundsson meant a continuation of the 4-4-2 formation – rather than the line-up that had finished the 2-2 draw at Villa Park – as Hendrick tucked inside to fill Cork’s role.

And it was Gudmundsson who had the Clarets’ only effort on target in a tame first half.

The Icelander climbed well to meet a deep cross from Erik Pieters – who ended the half limping following a high tackle from Coleman that brought the Irishman a yellow card – but at full stretch couldn’t find the power to beat Jordan Pickford.

The only other concern for the England international had come when Hendrick arrived late to fire an Ashley Westwood corner back towards goal with Pickford alert to clear the danger with his legs as the Clarets enjoyed their best spell of the opening 45 minutes.

At the other end, Nick Pope – named alongside Pickford and ex-Claret Tom Heaton in the England squad for their Euro 2022 qualifying double-header – had little to do either.

Everton, looking to arrest a run of three successive league defeats, did carry a threat – notably from set-pieces which had also been their most potent weapon when they won 5-1 at Turf Moor on Boxing Day.

Dwight McNeil had to clear one effort off the line, which came off team-mate Matt Lowton who knew more about one superb block to deny Alex Iwobi what looked like the opening goal five minutes before the break.

Pieters started the second half but lasted less than 10 minutes as he finally succumbed to the injury sustained in the challenge by Coleman.

The Everton full-back showed his concern as the sides came back out but moments after Pieters had been replaced by Charlie Taylor for his first Premier League appearance of the season, Coleman then leapt late into Dwight McNeil and saw yellow for the second time to get his marching orders.

From the free-kick that followed, Ashley Barnes volleyed just wide from James Tarkowski’s knock-down but the Clarets were unable to make the extra man count as Everton sat in with two banks of four and looked to play on the break.

But Burnley kept plugging away and their persistence finally paid off with 72 minutes gone.

Taylor’s forward burst won a corner and when Westwood again delivered beyond the far post, Hendrick timed his run to perfection to volley into the roof of the net.

Hendrick was then involved again as the Clarets could have doubled their lead, steering the ball into the path of substitute Jay Rodriguez who couldn’t beat Pickford as he slid in to shoot.

Gudmundsson then shot over after being superbly picked out by Taylor at the end of another typically barnstorming run.

And even though a second goal wouldn’t come and the Clarets had to see out six minutes of stoppage time, a superb defence performance wrapped around the titanic centre-back pairing of Tarkowski and Ben Mee ensured no alarms as a second successive home clean sheet made it job done.
