Burnley were one of the many teams that capitalized on Everton’s early season struggles. The team’s first meeting this season was just another example of how the Toffees lack a finishing ability on attack. On that day back in October, Everton saw 63% of the ball and managed to take 25 shots, but only four of them were on target and none of them ended in the goal as Burnley won 1-0.
The Clarets have been one of the pleasant surprises of the 2017-18 Premier League season. They still find themselves in seventh place and have a good shot at European football next year. However, they haven’t actually won a game since December 12, having benefited from the teams below them playing so poorly.
