Everton are hoping to maintain their top-four push when they welcome Burnley to Goodison Park in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Toffees brilliant run of form came to a bitter end last time out, rarely threatening Chelsea in a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge. However, they remain firmly in the top-four race, still only four points adrift while also boasting a game in hand.

Meanwhile, Burnley are treading carefully to avoid being drawn back into a relegation battle. The Clarets picked up a valuable point against Arsenal last weekend, thanks to Granit Xhaka’s comic defensive blunder. However, they are still just four points clear of Fulham.

It was a relatively even contest when the two sides met at the start of December with Dominic Calvert-Lewin cancelling out Robbie Brady’s early strike. Here is everything you need to know:
