Everton hosts Burnley at the Goodison Park in a match from the Boxing Day’s 19th round of the Premier League. We will have a look at this clash in our English Premier League predictions.
All of Everton’s fans are expecting this game with huge interest, because the club’s new manager Carlo Ancelotti is going to make his official debut. The legendary Italian coach arrives at Liverpool after the sacking of Marco Silva. In the last few rounds Everton were managed by the caretaker Duncan Ferguson, who didn’t lose a game.
Ancelotti arrvies at Everton soon after his sacking from Napoli. The Toffees are going to be his second club from the Premier League. He already won the league while managing Chelsea. Right now Everton have pretty solid squad with excellent players and the club was clearly underperforming under the management of Marco Silva. Ancelotti’s task is to change this. Right now Everton are 15th in the league with 19 points and this is not good enough.
In the previous round Everton hosted Arsenal at home and the team won a point after a 0-0 draw. In this game the hosts were still managed by Duncan Ferguson.
Burnley are approaching this visit to Liverpool from 10th place in the standings, which is pretty good. Right now Sean Dyche’s team have 24 points won and a record of 7 wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats.
Few days ago Burnley won for a second consecutive round. They visited Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium and won the game after a winning goal from Jay Rodriguez just one minute before the end of the regular time.
In our English Premier League predictions we can’t wait to see what will happen in Carlo Ancelotti’s debut at Everton. Burnley are always a tough opponent, but we expect to see some great enthusiasm in Everton’s squad on Thursday.
