Everton vs Burnley Match Preview
Carlo Ancelotti will be in the Everton home dugout for the first time on Boxing Day – and he would certainly take a repeat of the scoreline when these clubs met exactly 12 months ago.
Burnley and Everton faced each other on the day after Christmas at Turf Moor in 2018 and the Toffees won 5-1, which was clearly an anomaly – it was their only victory during an otherwise dismal eight-game spell!
That run was among the first indications that Marco Silva’s appointment as Everton manager was not going to work, hence Ancelotti has been hired with perfect timing on the Merseyside club’s part following his recent departure from Napoli.
Given the Italian’s lofty reputation, big improvement is expected from his new team’s current 15th position in the Premier League table and on paper this looks a suitable introduction with Everton odds-on to beat Burnley.
However, it may not be that straightforward. Burnley are five points and five places above Everton in the table, beat them 1-0 at home in October and have also won their last two games by the same scoreline, most recently away to Bournemouth on Saturday.
With Ancelotti having had only a few days to work with the squad he has taken over, Everton’s odds look to be very much on the short side here and we would rather have Burnley in our corner to potentially avenge their drubbing on Boxing Day a year ago.
