The Burnley vs Everton live stream is a game of huge importance in the Premier League relegation battle. It’s a match that neither side can afford to lose, and both will be desperately pushing for the vital three points on offer.
Burnley’s current plight isn’t exactly an unfamiliar one. Sean Dyche's side are no strangers to a relegation scrap. Granted, even by their standards, this has been a difficult season so far. The side currently sit 19th, four points from safety with just three wins to their name, which is the fewest of any Premier League side.
The Clarets' most recent defeat came against Manchester City. Hardly an unexpected result, and there’s no shame in losing to the league leaders even at home, but Burnley’s single shot on target in the 90 minutes will be a cause for concern.
Burnley are renowned for being a defensively solid team — they have conceded the fewest of any team in the bottom seven — but they've seriously struggled to find the back of the net this season. Their current total of 22 goals in 28 games is the lowest in the league, and would suggest a return to the Championship after six years in the top flight is a real possibility.
Nobody expected Everton to be in this position with 10 games remaining of their season. They started surprisingly well under manager Rafa Benitez, but quickly fell apart and slid down the table in alarming fashion. Benitez was sacked in January after a dismissal defeat to bottom-of-the-table Norwich, and while new boss Frank Lampard has managed crucial wins over fellow relegation battlers Leeds and Newcastle, the Toffees are still staring down the barrel of their first relegation since 1951.
That dramatic last-minute win over the Magpies was followed up with a 2-1 loss at the London Stadium. High-flying West Ham have proved a tricky opposition for many teams this season, and Everton fans can take some comfort from an improved performance at least. More concerning was the sending off of Michael Keane. This was Everton’s third red card in as many PL games, and could indicate that the pressure of an unexpected relegation fight is getting to some members of the squad.
The stats don’t make good reading, either. Since the start of the year Everton have claimed just six points, the fewest of any Premier League side. The team also has the worst away record in the league this season, managing a single victory, three draws and 10 defeats on the road. They are currently on a streak of five away defeats in a row. If Everton are to avoid relegation they desperately need to end that run at Turf Moor.
Here's how they line up:
Burnley: Pope, Roberts, Collins, Tarkowski, Taylor, Lennon, Westwood, Cornet, Brownhill, Rodriguez, Weghorst.
Everton: Pickford, Kenny, Branthwaite Godfrey, Mykolenko, Doucoure, Holgate, Iwobi, Gordon, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
