Team News: Everton
James Rodríguez (Quarantine) and Cenk Tosun (Patella rupture) won’t be available for Everton manager Rafael Benítez.
Team News: Burnley
Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Burnley boss Sean Dyche to be concerned with. Connor Roberts (Groin Injury) won’t be in action.
Burnley should get enough chances to find the net against this Everton team, but it probably won’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re expecting a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for Everton by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
