Everton v Burnley Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.45pm UK Time, Wednesday 1st November 2023

 

Everton fans have been forced to endure 28 years without a single trophy but victory away to Aston Villa has placed the Toffees in a decent position to potentially enjoy a decent run in this season’s EFL Cup.

Cup runs may not be of the utmost importance to Everton given that they continue to be one of the favourites for relegation at the end of 2023/24, however recent form would suggest that the current campaign might prove to be more stress-free than recent campaigns. Talk of a points deduction means that Everton will have a big dark cloud hanging over them until the Premier League make a final decision regarding financial breaches, however on the pitch the Toffees are starting to show what they are capable of. For a side which has been struggling on their travels in recent months, Sean Dyche steered his charges to their fourth away win of the campaign when they edged past West Ham United to the tune of 1-0 last weekend.

With Dyche at the helm, the Toffees have suffered just five defeats in their last sixteen away games across competitions, these coming against top-level opposition in the form of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool (on two occasions) and Aston Villa. Indeed, having won four of their last six league outings, the Toffees can genuinely lay claim to being one of the most in-form top-flight sides right now and while they have never before won the EFL Cup, the chances are that they can move a step closer to ending this particular hoodoo on Wednesday evening.

Everton’s midweek opponents Burnley are in dire straits at the moment with just four points taken from their opening ten league games. This will be worrying for Vincent Kompany who, despite his aim of playing attractive and expansive football, has witnessed his side concede 25 goals while scoring a measly 8. The Clarets’ only Premier League win this term has been against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road while the only other time they avoided defeat whilst on league duty was in the 1-1 draw away to Nottingham Forest. On home soil, Burnley have collected no points whatsoever and while both the Clarets and the Toffees are almost certain to rotate many players in this midweek cup clash, we envisage the hosts having the edge on account of their improved recent form.

 

Back Everton to win at best odds of 19/20
