Burnley vs Everton LIVE updates: Latest Premier League action from Turf Moor

Everton make the trip to Burnley in today’s early kick off as Sean Dyche seeks to mark his 250th game in charge at Turf Moor with three points.

Burnley extended their winless run to 11 matches in the league after substitute Manolo Gabbiadini’s late goal rescued a point for Southampton in a 1-1 draw last weekend.

Meanwhile Everton have collected 26 out of their 34 points at Goodison Park, with eight wins in 14 games.

Four of those victories came under manager Sam Allardyce who took over from Ronald Koeman in November with Everton two points above the drop zone.

The Merseyside club have since climbed to ninth and are three points behind seventh-placed Burnley.

Burnley 0-0 Everton LIVE updates: Express Sport brings you the latest Premier League action from Turf Moor

21: Really?! Burnley haven’t won when falling behind in 53 Premier League games under Sean Dyche. Walcott will be rueing that miss.

Lennon sends Martina to the shops with a crafty turn before cutting it back to Cork, who fires over.

18: Commentators curse. Sigurdsson wiggles his way into the penalty area and lays it on a plate for Walcott. The ex-Arsenal winger swipes it miles over the bar and promptly blames Davies for getting in the way.

15: Not surprising to see a lack of quality in the final third. That observation applies to Burnley because Everton haven’t been in the hosts half yet…

12: Gudmundsson’s been involved in everything today. The midfielder has another crack from range having been found by Barnes, who is getting the better of former team-mate Keane today. It went well wide.

9: Great football from Burnley. Lowton sets off down the right and tees up a beautiful cross for Barnes, who’s narrowly beaten in the air by Keane.

6: Ground staff at Burnley have done a tremendous job. The pitch is nice and the snow doesn’t seem to have affected the zip.

Burnley in the ascendancy with Gudmundsson’s long-ranger gathered easily by Pickford.

3: Everton fans aren’t the type to let weather, performance or results get in the way of a good time. They’re signing their heads off in the packed away section.

Not much to shout about yet in these quiet opening exchanges.

BURNLEY 0-0 EVERTON

1: Right we’re off. Predictions? I’m not too hopeful of goals today, but I notice Ashley Williams is playing so a penalty is inbound. 1-0 Burnley for me.

TWO-MINUTE WARNING

12:28: I know I always mention it but I love that Burnley play “Wake Up” by Arcade Fire as the players emerge from the tunnel.

Nothing fiery about Turf Moor today though folks. It’s obscenely cold.

TWITTER ROUND-UP

Bowers: This should be a great game. One team who can’t score against another who doesn’t want to. 0-0 incoming!

David: Sean Dyche vs. Sam Allardyce: an English manager everyone likes against an English manager no one likes.

Billy: Big day for Cenk Tosun today. Make a name for yourself, put a shift in and bag a couple of goals. Has to be big and tough today. No hiding place for anyone at Turf Moor.

PICKFORD PLEA

12:15: I suppose Jordan Pickford is Everton’s one and only positive this season.

And he’s desperate for Everton to quickly improve their form on the road to ensure a strong finish to a difficult Premier League season.

Everton have collected 26 out of their 34 points at Goodison Park, with eight wins in 14 games, but have one win in 14 games on the road.

“We know our home form is really good, and that we need to improve our record away. That’s where you really shoot right up the table. That’s where we want to be as a team. We can only get better. We need to go and make the fans proud. We are not far away from seventh. We need to go to Turf Moor and try to win. It is always tough to do that there.”

I WON’T CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES… COME ON!

12:10: Just wedged a cheeky Kool & The Gang reference in here. I like to keep things current…

Anyway, Burnley winger Aaron Lennon will not be celebrating if he scores against his old club Everton today.

Asked ahead of this weekend’s game if he would celebrate should he get on the scoresheet, Lennon said: “No. Just because the fans were great for me – they were so supportive through a lot of difficult times. I wouldn’t celebrate if I scored, no.”

GREAT ATMOSPHERE…

12:00: Turf Moor is packed with excited supporters ahead of this one. Look at these two, can barely contain themselves.

TWITTER ROUND-UP

Brian: Tough game under harsh weather conditions but Burnley expected to get some points in this one.

Chris: Right, Allardyce said that Tosun can’t cope in the cold weather. So naturally he’s starting during the UK’s coldest period of weather for donkey’s years.

James: Burnley, let’s make sure we match the weather today. Ice cold! No mistakes let’s get this win under our belts!

THE FORM

11:50: Makes grim reading for these two…

Sean Dyche’s Burnley are on an 11-game winless run and have lost five games in that period.

Everton don’t fare much better.

The Toffees have one win in 14 games on the road this season. Last weekend’s 1-0 defeat by Watford was their eighth away defeat of the campaign.

So you might think a 0-0 draw looks certain, BUT none of the seven Premier League games between these two sides have ended in a draw.

Confused? Yep, I have no idea what’s going to happen.

TEAM NEWS – EVERTON

11:40: Big Sam makes three changes from the side who slumped to a 1-0 defeat to Watford last Saturday.

Seamus Coleman returns in place of Jonjo Kenny, while Cenk Tosun is preferred to Oumar Niasse.

Young Dominic Calvert-Lewin starts with Wayne Rooney dropping to the bench.

TEAM NEWS – BURNLEY

11:35: Just the one change for the Clarets with James Tarkowski handed a recall as Kevin Long drops to the bench.

No Scott Arfield in the matchday squad, but Chris Wood is named amongst the substitutes once again.

Aaron Lennon, who left Everton for Burnley in January, starts for the hosts. Will he come back to haunt his former club?

BURNLEY vs EVERTON – PREVIEW

Burnley’s fit-again defender James Tarkowski could be involved after stepping up his recovery from a groin problem by playing a midweek friendly against Preston.

Goalkeeper Tom Heaton also played in that game after a long lay-off caused by a shoulder problem and may have a role to play. Midfielder Scott Arfield (calf) is set to be unavailable.

On-loan defender Eliaquim Mangala is unlikely to play for Everton again this season because of a knee injury. Fellow defenders Seamus Coleman (thigh), Leighton Baines (ankle) and Phil Jagielka are expected to return to the squad this weekend.

However, the game arrives too soon for centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori, who is set to play for the under-23s again as he builds up his fitness after spending 10 months out with a knee injury.

Last season: Everton 3 Burnley 1, Burnley 2 Everton 1

Last five league matches: Burnley L D D L D; Everton D W L W L

Top scorers (all competitions): Chris Wood (Burnley) 6; Wayne Rooney (Everton) 11

Referee: Chris Kavanagh (Lancashire).
