  • After winning four of their first six Premier League meetings with Burnley (L2), Everton have won just three of the last eight against the Clarets in the competition (D1 L4).
  • Burnley have won two of their last four away league games against Everton (L2), as many as they had in their previous 16 visits to Goodison Park (D4 L10).
  • Just one of the last 15 league meetings between Everton and Burnley has been drawn, with each side winning seven each. The one draw in that run came at Turf Moor last season (1-1).
  • After losing four of their first five Premier League away games on a Monday (D1), and conceding 15 goals in the process, the Clarets have won two of their last three on the road (D1), keeping a clean sheet in all three games.
  • Everton have scored seven goals in their three Premier League games this season, as many as they had in their last 10 games last term. The Toffees are looking to win three consecutive home league games for the first time since a run of six between March and September 2019.
  • Burnley have lost nine of their last 12 Premier League matches (W2 D1). However, each of the Clarets’ last four wins in the competition have all come away from home.

  • Everton’s Demarai Gray has scored in each of his last two Premier League games, having scored in just two of his previous 32 in the competition. It’s only the second time he’s scored in consecutive appearances in the Premier League, also doing so in December 2017.
