Burnley v Everton: Arfield well-priced to pop up again
Burnley have the calamitous mistakes from Richard Dunne and Stephen Caulker to thank for keeping them off the Premier League’s bottom spot, as they continue to strive for that elusive first win.
Sean Dyche’s men may smell blood this week though with opponents Everton coming into their Sunday lunch-time clash after a trip to the continent in the week.
Take a look at our best bets for the action at Turf Moor.
The Toffees have found the net in every one of the Premier League ties to date, as Steven Naismith and gradually Romelu Lukaku begin to come to the boil.
They have however struggled to keep it tight at the back, keeping just two domestic clean sheets so far, one of those against Aston Villa, who at the moment couldn’t hit a cow’s ar…you get the picture.
And despite Burnley’s impotency in front of goal so far this campaign, there were hints of life against West Ham when they could have netted two or three, with the woodwork rattling on more than one occasion.
In a follow on to the above train of thought, although the Clarets are winless, they have at times proven tough to beat, demonstrated by the four draws in their last six matches.
The encouraging performance against the Hammers last week will breed confidence around the Lancashire club, and although it might be a stretch for them to end that unbeaten run here, they could well nick a point.
Everton have fallen into the familiar cycle of clubs struggling after Europa League exerts, losing both their domestic ties after a European contest this season, so a win looks far from straight forward.
As Danny Ings and Lukas Jutkiewicz continue to frustrate in front of goal, it could come down to the former Huddersfield man to get Burnley out of trouble.
He is currently one of only four players at the club to have bagged a goal this season in a quiet start for visiting keepers to Turf Moor.
Only the aforementioned strike partnership have registered more shots on target for the club this season, so with the Scot partial to a long range effort, we are hoping one of those speculative ones comes off.
