Second stop on Monday is Liverpool and Goodison Park Stadium, where Everton and Burnley put an end to the fourth round of the Premier League. If successful, the hosts will join several teams at the top of the table, but the guests at the bottom of the table are unlikely to agree.
Everton with their tenth place right in the middle of the standings, last season they missed just one step away from participating in the Conference League tournament. This season, according to most experts, will be even more complicated with one idea, but the "Caramels" started well, we know how important a strong start is. On this field, they beat Southampton 3: 1, then twice in a row as guests ended in a draw with Leeds - 2: 2 and beat Brighton 2: 0. As we announced, the boys of the new coach Rafa Benitez, who succeeded Carlo Ancelotti, can climb into the top four. Delph is injured and Davis and Rodriguez's condition is in doubt.
Burnley squandered at least three points in their three games, first losing at home after a complete turnaround in the last 15 minutes with 1: 2 from Brighton, then logically lost to Anfield from Liverpool with 0: 2. In the third round of the Turf Moore Stadium, there were winners against Leeds, but they conceded a late goal in the 86th minute and were left with only one asset point before today's very difficult visit to the Beatles. As things stand, there is a high probability that the "Wine Reds" will be ranked again at the end of the table, true with 11 points ahead of the 18th Fulham who dropped out last season. The head of the team is again Sean Daish, who is aware of the things around his players, from which he must demand the maximum in each match in order to have a chance to survive in the fierce competition. Roberts and Stevens are injured, and Collins' involvement is questionable.
In 2018 - 2019 two victories for Everton - 5: 1 as guests and 2-0 at this stadium. In 2019 - 2020 exchanged victories for the hosts with 1: 0. In the last championship of Turf Moore - a draw 1: 1 and success for Burnley on this field with 2: 1. With almost 3/1 the hosts are determined as favorites, the tips are quite diverse - goal / goal yes and no, X2, 1st and under 2.5 goals. Based on the last 4 losses for Burnley from 5 matches, we direct you to success for the "Caramels" - forecast 1 and success for all!
Everton are impressive
With Rafael Benitez, Everton really made a strong start to the season in the Premier League.
Two wins and one draw are the least they deserve.
Given that they are the 4th best team in attack and the 3rd best in defense so far of all in the league.
Everton definitely defeated all their rivals according to xG data .
They showed character, beating Southampton after falling behind in the result.
And they can regret the missed victory over Leeds, due to the equalizer towards the end of the match.
Burnley started weak
At the same time, nothing new or unexpected is happening to Burnley.
The usual weak start of the season for them became emblematic. This time with 2 losses and 1 draw.
The goals on duty are less scored than the otherwise sufficiently created positions.
These results will neither startle them nor change their style.
Prediction for Everton - Burnley
This is the important moment for my football prediction.
Both Everton and Burnley play the so-called direct style.
He does not have long possession of the ball.
And the goal is only with vertical direct passes and a large number of crossings to get to hit the opponent's goal.
This implies a large number of corners in each of their matches. And especially when they meet a rival with the same style.
I just note that both of Burnley's goals so far have been scored after a corner kick.
In addition, when teams with the same way of playing meet, the victory is most often for the one who has the better players.
I add both probabilities in a common bet of medium size.
