Everton kicked off the crazy Christmas period with a snooze-fest, 0-0 draw against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns. But with Leicester City losing to Watford 2-1, the Blues went even on points for eighth place, in striking distance of the European spots.
Unfortunately, Burnley did nab a surprising 2-2 draw with Manchester United, but their demise certainly feels inevitable, right? The boys in blue certainly hope so, or they will be ruing the subpar start to the campaign.
