Everton will be looking to make it four games unbeaten when they tackle Burnley at Goodison Park. 

The Toffees have seven points out of a possible nine in the Premier League while their opponents are currently occupying a relegation spot with just a singular point to their name. 

Team News

Dominic Calvert-Lewin was unable to link up with the England National Team because of injury, however, manager Rafa Benitez is cautiously optimistic that his key man will be able to return. The big striker has been training with the first-team squad. 

Seamus Coleman, Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey are all in contention to start but James Rodriguez and Fabian Delph will not be fit. 

In the other camp, Sean Dyche could call upon new signing Maxwel Cornet, who was brought in from Lyon for £12-million, but the Ivory Coast star is expected to start on the bench.

Predicted Line-ups

Everton: Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Digne; Townsend, Allan, Doucoure, Gray; Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.

Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Barnes.

Ones to watch

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)

Calvert-Lewin has made a strong start to life under the new manager. Benitez has simplified Everton's game down, putting a focus on getting the ball out wide and delivering balls into the box. Such a basic tactical setup is music to the ears of Calvert-Lewin, who is one of the best strikers around in an aerial situation. 

Dwight McNeil (Burnley)

Dwight McNeil is no stranger to these parts. The talented academy product scored an outrageous curler in a 2-1 Burnley victory over Everton last season. McNeil has made a strong start to this campaign, impressing in the defeat against Liverpool before causing Leeds United a lot of problems before the international break.

Previous Meetings

As aforementioned, Burnley took all three points from the blue side of Merseyside when these two took each other on in empty stadiums. McNeil's sensational strike doubled the Burnley lead after Chris Wood had put the Clarets ahead. 

Calvert-Lewin halved the arrears before half-time but Carlo Ancelotti's men were unable to turn the match around.

The reverse fixture in that season finished 1-1. In that one, Calvert-Lewin's predatory finish cancelled out a long-range drive from Robbie Brady
