Everton are set to play host to Burnley at Goodison Park tomorrow for their latest English Premier League game.

Everton come into this game on the back of a 2-0 loss to Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea on Monday at Stamford Bridge. A first-half own goal from centre-back Ben Godfrey and a second-half penalty from Italy international Jorginho secured the win for Chelsea.

Burnley, on the other hand, drew 1-1 against Mikel Arteta's Arsenal last Saturday at Turf Moor. A goal from star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Arsenal was cancelled out by a goal from New Zealand international Chris Wood for Burnley.

Everton vs Burnley Prediction

Everton are currently 6th in the league table, four points behind 4th-placed Chelsea who have played a game more. The Toffees have impressed with their performances this season, with striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin key to their success.

Burnley, on the other hand, are 15th in the league table. Sean Dyche's side are renowned for their ability to soak pressure and sit deep, and have a tendency to frustrate the opposition with their style of play.

Everton are in good form, and despite missing some important players should have enough to triumph.

Prediction: Everton 1-0 Burnley
