A team who struggle to score against a team with a horrid away record sets up this fixture at Turf Moor as Burnley host Everton in a vital relegation clash. 

The Clarets know that anything other than a victory would put their six year Premier League stay in danger whereas victory could provide a huge confidence boost. 

Everton are four points clear of Sean Dyche's Clarets but with The Toffees' poor away form, manager Frank Lampard will be feeling the pressure.

Neither side will want to lose which could make for a feisty encounter in East Lancashire. 

  • Team news

Burnley will be pleased that they are able to welcome back Nathan Collins after the Republic of Ireland international served a suspension following his red card at Brentford

Matej Vydra could also be back in contention as he played for the U23's after recovering from a hernia operation and a dislocated elbow. 

The game on Wednesday night comes too quick for captain Ben Mee who is not yet fit following his knee injury picked up against Leicester City.  

Burnley will also be without Johann Berg Gudmundsson who is out with a calf injury. 

As for Everton, Frank Lampard will be without former Clarets centre back Michael Keane following his red card in Sunday's defeat to West Ham.

Donny Van de Beek will also be out after he injured himself in the warm up at the London Stadium at the weekend. 

The Toffees are boosted by the return of captain Seamus Coleman after the Irishman returns from illness. 

The blue side of Merseyside will also be without Allan who is still suspended along with an endless list of injury concerns that faces the Everton boss.

  • Ones to Watch 

Burnley - Maxwel Cornet

If there was ever a time for one of Burnley's key men to step up, it's certainly Maxwel Cornet's time. The Ivorian looked bright off the bench in a lacklustre performance against Manchester City and Sean Dyche will be hoping his freshness and trickery will cause Seamus Coleman problems.

Everton - Richarlison

The Brazilian has caused Burnley many problems before. He has certainly been Everton's standout man this season and if Everton want to pick up an away victory at Turf Moor, the former Watford man will have to be on top form alongside Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

  • Predicted lineups 

Burnley: Pope, Roberts, Collins, Tarkowski, Taylor, Lennon, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil, Cornet, Weghorst (4-4-2)

Everton: Pickford, Coleman, Holgate, Godfrey, Kenny, Doucoure, Iwobi, Gordon, Gray, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison (4-3-3) 

  • Form Guide 

It's no question that both of these sides have had a very difficult campaign and will want to do all they can to avoid dropping into the Championship

Everton won the reverse fixture 3-1 back in September when they were near the top of the table at the time under Rafa Benitez, but the tables have turned and Everton are bang in trouble. Goals from Andros Townsend, Michael Keane and Demarai Gray sealed it for Everton on the night.

Burnley's last home victory came on a Wednesday night at home to Tottenham Hotspur back in late February. Could this be a good omen for Sean Dyche's men?

Prediction 

A team who haven't scored since February against a team who can't win away is a very difficult one to call. A draw will do neither side any good but they will naturally be desperate to avoid a crushing defeat.

Prediction - Burnley 1-1 Everton
