BURNLEY V EVERTON

Midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin, meanwhile, is continuing his rehabilitation from an Achilles injury and is expected to be back in First Team training this month.
Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope and midfielder Josh Brownhill are expected to be available after missing last weekend’s defeat at Manchester City.
Dale Stephens and Robbie Brady have also returned to training and are in contention for a place in boss Sean Dyche’s matchday squad.
Phil Bardsley and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are doubts for the Clarets.

KEYS FACTS AND MILESTONES
Everton and Burnley have not played out a goalless draw in the league in 73 games. The previous stalemate was in September 1924.
Premier League top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin has struck the opening goal in four top-flight matches this season – more than any other player.
Yerry Mina requires one more start to reach 50 for Everton in all competitions.
ONE TO WATCH: Dwight McNeil
Talented winger McNeil’s importance to Burnley is underlined by the fact he has started 65 of the Clarets’ past 66 Premier League matches – including every game last season and so far this term.
McNeil, who usually operates on the left flank, boasts impressive speed, work-rate and crossing ability.
Indeed, the quality of McNeil’s deliveries both in open play and from set-pieces seen him recently described by England Under-21s boss Aidy Boothroyd as “a striker’s dream”.
McNeil only turned 21 a fortnight ago but has already racked up 78 senior appearances for Burnley. He has scored eight goals and provided 12 assists for the Clarets.
REFEREE: Anthony Taylor
VAR: Mike Dean
