Eventually suffering a 3-1 defeat against Manchester City last weekend, Everton have continued to flatter to deceive entering October. In need of a kick-start, the Blues will make the trip to Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.
On the flip side, coming from behind twice to snatch a point away at a returning Aston Villa last weekend, Burnley are in the midst of a three-match unbeaten run since returning from the international break, a run that has seen them take points off of Villa, Norwich, and Brighton.
Despite showing some worrying issues at the start of the 2019/2020 campaign, Everton did secure back-to-back victories over the Clarets last season and Silva’s men can be found at 31/20 with William Hill to land a trio of victories this weekend.
Chris Wood continues to shine
While Burnley boss Sean Dyche may have been disappointed to have seen his side only pick up a point on their travels last weekend, the 48-year-old has seen his side enjoy a three-match unbeaten run, their best run since April.
Now with only their goal difference keeping them below Manchester United in the standings, fans around Lancashire are looking for their side to mount a top-half charge.
Saturday’s hosts can currently be found as high as 5/1 with Betfair to secure a top-10 finish come May.
If Burnley are to enter October’s international break with an undefeated record, then Dyche will be looking for the red-hot Chris Wood to spearhead their charge.
Once again finding the net away at Villa Park last time out, the New Zealand international has now bagged three goals in his last two Premier League appearances despite failing to record a strike in the nine before that.
You might be interested to know that Wood is pencilled in at 9/4 with Ladbrokes to extend his purple patch at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.
Marco Silva – A man under pressure
Although they may have put up a rugged display for 70 minutes against Manchester City last weekend, Head Coach Marco Silva saw his side eventually slump to a 3-1 defeat at Goodison.
Now losing their last three Premier League matches on the bounce, their worst run since February, it appears the pressure is really starting to mount on the former Watford boss.
Despite once again spending big over the summer, Silva is currently pencilled in at 4/1 with Bet365 to be the next manager given the boot, only behind Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.
If Everton are to help relieve some of the pressure on Silva, then fans on Merseyside will be looking for striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin to lead their fight back.
Bagging two in his last two for the first time in his career, the 22-year-old can be found at 13/5 with 888Sport to once again find the net this weekend.
