In high spirits after a string of strong home performances, Al Hain-Cole expects the Toffees to get the better of Dyche's men in an entertaining clash

Everton will be hoping to keep themselves in the running for Europa League qualification when they welcome Burnley to Goodison Park in Friday's Premier League clash.

Marco Silva's men are four points adrift of seventh-placed Wolves with just two games to go, but find themselves in strong form after four wins and just one defeat from the last six league matches.

Latest odds

Having run out 5-1 winners in the reverse encounter at Turf Moor, they are 20/33 (1.61) favourites with SportPesa to maintain the pressure on the top seven with another victory here.

However, the Clarets have won three of the last five meetings between the sides, and are priced at 19/4 (5.75) to come out on top once again in this one.

None of the nine Premier League encounters between this pair have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on this one finishing up all square.

Team news

Andre Gomes will serve the last of his three suspended matches incurred for a stamp on Aleksandar Mitrovic against Fulham, while Yerry Mina could be in contention after returning to training following injury.

Phil Bardsley should be in contention after recovering from injury, although Aaron Lennon and Peter Crouch will be assessed and Steven Defour is definitely ruled out.

In-form Toffees

After a run of just one win in eight home games, the Toffees have turned things around by first holding Liverpool to a goalless draw before beating Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United in successive matches in front of their own fans.

They should therefore feel confident of seeing off a visiting team that has won just four times in 18 games on the road this campaign - although it may not be all plain sailing.

Indeed, Sean Dyche’s side have found the net in all but two of their most recent nine – scoring seven times in the last three including twice at Chelsea.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 47/20 (3.35) are well worth backing on Everton coming out on top despite both teams getting on target for the fifth meeting in six against Burnley.

Everton to win and both teams to score at 47/20 (3.35) for a 1pt stake with SportPesa
