Predicted Burnley Line-out To Face Everton In The Premier League

Burnley will pay a visit to the Goodison Park this weekend, as they gear up to clash against Ronald Koeman’s Everton in gameweek 7 of the Premier League, on Sunday.  

The Clarets have had a solid start to the new campaign as they sit 9th in the league table, with 9 points from 6 games, having won two games and losing just one. Last weekend, they played out a goalless draw against Huddersfield Town at the Turf Moor, and manager Sean Dyche will be hoping that he can come away with a point or three against the Toffees this weekend. 

Team News 

Summer signing Jonathan Walters is a doubt for the game due to a knee injury, whereas captain and goalkeeper Tom Heaton is ruled out due to a shoulder problem. Nahki Wells too is yet to recover from his ankle injury, while midfielder Dean Marney is also out.  

Here’s how the Clarets might take the field against the Merseysiders on Sunday: 

Manager: Sean Dyche 

Formation: 4-4-2 

Nick Pope (GK) 

The 25-year old has done well in the last three games, deputising for the injured Tom Heaton. Will keep his place in the starting XI. 

Matthew Lowton (RB) 

The 28-year old is the first-choice at right-back for Dyche, ahead of summer signing Phil Bardsley. A sure starter against Everton.  

Matthew Lowton

James Tarkowski (CB) 

The Englishman has done a fine job at the heart of the defence since the start of the season, replacing Michael Keane. Will look to continue in the same vein of form on Sunday. 

Ben Mee (CB) 

The 28-year old should partner Tarkowski in central defence. Will look to deal with the threat of the pacy Dominic Calvert-Lewin.  

Stephen Ward (LB) 

The Irishman has started the season on a strong note and has been one of Burnley’s better players. Should keep his place at left-back, ahead of Charlie Taylor. 

Johann Berg Gudmundsson

Johann Berg Gudmundsson (RM) 

The Icelandic international did not start against Huddersfield last weekend, but could be reinstated to the starting XI on Sunday, on the right flank.  

Jack Cork (CM) 

The former Swansea man has had a good start to life with the Clarets. Has become a vital cog in the midfield engine room for Burnley and should start on Sunday.  

Steven Defour (CM) 

The Belgian has worked his way back into Dyche’s scheme of things this season and has performed admirably. Should partner Cork in the centre of the pitch.  

Chris Wood

Robbie Brady (LM) 

The Republic of Ireland international has settled in nicely after a slow start since joining the club in January. Should keep his place on the left-hand side of the midfield. 

Sam Vokes (ST) 

The Welshman was benched for last weekend’s tie against Huddersfield Town, but is in line for a return to the starting XI on Sunday. 

Chris Wood (ST) 

The Kiwi forward has enjoyed a decent start since moving from Leeds United in the summer, but was slightly wasteful last week. Will want to address that against Everton.
