Our football match prediction:
Burnley have been having their ups and downs in the Premier League this season. The Clarets are tough to beat at home ground, but their away record is anything but good. The newcomers experienced all sorts of problems in a 3-1 loss to Southampton at the weekend and we would not be surprised if they fail to grab something from Sunday’s football game against Everton. The Toffees played out a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the weekend, but it has to be noted that the Citizens missed two penalties in the Etihad Stadium clash. Ronald Koeman’s men aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in all competitions and we predict that the visitors will adopt an attack-minded approach against Burnley. Romelu Lukaku scored in the 1-1 draw with Manchester City and the Belgian attacker is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line.
Highlighted Player (Heaton):
Tom Heaton is a goalkeeper who was born on 15 April, 1986 in Chester, England. Heaton played for Manchester United during his youth career, but he did not make a first-team debut for the Old Trafford outfit. During his period at Manchester United he played for several lower-league clubs on loan (Swindon Town, Royal Antwerp, Cardiff City, QPR, Rochdale, Wycombe Wanderers). After ending his loan spell with Wycombe Wanderers in 2010, the goalkeeper signed a contract with Cardiff City. After making 29 appearances for Bristol City in the Championship, he joined Burnley in 2013. He played for the Clarets in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign, but he did not help the team avoid relegation to the English second tier. However, Tom Heaton and his teammates returned to the top flight at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Heaton made his England debut in a warm-up game against Australia in 2016 as the Three Lions recorded a 2-1 win over the Socceroos, while he was also a member of the squad that represented the country at the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four camaigns. The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987. The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955. In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
