PREVIEW | Everton v Burnley

Everton v Burnley

Everton is in the mud and has been this entire year thus far. We are in search of a desperately needed win, a win that would create a buffer between the bottom three and us

Newcastle United 1-1 Everton

Newcastle were the favorites coming into this match and for majority of the game that looked to be true. In the 15th minute, Isak would open the scoring with an easy finish from inside the 18.

The defending would be that of a Sunday league side. Tarkowski would get stuck up the pitch just a tad too much which allowed a ball to be played in behind and Branthwaite with a challenge into the nothingness.

Everton would stay in the game due to some individual heroism by Pickford and Mykolenko. It would be enough to keep the match at a one goal differential.

Come the 88th minute after intervention from VAR, they would deem that a headlock on Ashley Young during a free kick would be enough to award a penalty to the blues.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin would end his goal scoring drought by rocketing home a Penalty kick against a correctly diving Dubravka.

The Toffees would hold on for a crucial point away from home. The points are trickling in but we need a win sooner rather than later to give us some space to breathe.

Burnley 1-1 Wolves

Another 1-1 draw on Tuesday would see the bottom end of the table stay similar to how the day started. Burnley opened the scoring early on through a Bruun-Larsen strike. A quality finish off the volley would give Burnley a lead early.

Jose Sa made save after save to keep his Wolves side in the match. They would be rewarded just before half time via a Ait Nouri goal. The teams stayed level going into half time

The second half wouldn’t offer too much excitement, but much like the first half, Sa would keep Kompany’s men at bay for the remainder of the match.

Everton key player

Dominic-Calvert Lewin scored against Newcastle and now the flood gates are opened! It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen his name on the score sheet but it’s about time he’s put one in.

He looked dangerous during moments of the match, more dangerous than Beto that is. I would prefer to see Dom start against Burnley and start stretching Burnley’s defense early on.

Final thoughts

Every match day is an important match day… with that being said, this is a huge opportunity to extend the lead over the bottom three. We are due for a win in 2024, it has been a long time since we had something to truly celebrate.

I still believe in Dyche and the fact is, he will get us over the line.
