The fourth round of the Premier League closes with a match between Everton and Burnley (Monday, 21.00). Since the arrival of Rafa Benitez, the Caramels have played great, showing that they didn't even need a lot of reinforcements, so they still don't have a single defeat in the season.
In fact, only the visit to Leeds (2: 2) spoiled the perfect result. Southampton (3: 1) and Brighton (2: 0) were defeated in the championship, and Huddersfield (2: 1) was eliminated in the League Cup with fewer and fewer players in the last half hour.
21.00: (1.75) Everton (3.50) Burnley (5.10) Last season, Everton were better as a guest than at their Goodison Park. They lost as many as nine times, and one of the teams that took all the spoils were Burnley. Now the host want revenge on them.
Everton have not been too active this summer. They brought several free players, in order to fill the bench and intensify the competition, and only Demarai Gray was paid. Bayer Leverkusen received compensation of 2,000,000 euros.
Benitez has so far promoted only Andros Townsend, who came from Crystal Palace to the first team. Salomon Rondon, who arrived from Dalian on the last day of the transfer window, is expected to make his debut tonight. However, the Venezuelan will be looking for his first minutes from the bench.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will have the advantage because he is the best scorer of the home team with three goals. Burnley was significantly more active during the summer than Everton, and it is expected that their most expensive reinforcement, Maxwel Cornet, will debut today.
Burnley paid 15,000,000 euros to this 24-year-old left-back. In the duels between Everton and Burnley, a larger number of goals is rarely seen. Caramels have seven wins in the elite rank, Burnley have celebrated six times, and they have only drawn once.
Last season, in December, it was 1: 1. Both teams will be motivated before this match and Everton is certainly the favorite, but we know how difficult Burnley can be.
