Everton v Burnley: match preview | Premier League

Carlo Ancelotti was effusive in his praise of Sean Dyche’s work on Friday. “I was born with 4-4-2 with Sacchi and Burnley explain really well how you play 4-4-2,” he said. “They are not inventing new football. Football was already invented a long time ago.” And the Everton manager will have to get creative against well-drilled visitors who have drawn four of their past five games. The influential Abdoulaye Doucouré is out for at least two months, James Rodríguez remains sidelined and Gylfi Sigurdsson is doubtful. Burnley have their own problems with Charlie Taylor and Jack Cork expected to join Ashley Barnes among the absentees. Andy Hunter
