The Clarets are out to make it back to back home wins having defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 in their last Turf Moor encounter.
Burnley were thumped 5-0 by Man City last time out but Clarets chief Sean Dyche will want to build on the positives from the Eagles encounter rather than dwell on another Etihad hammering.

Burnley escaped from the bottom three with their first win of the season against Crystal Palace, only to be plunged back into the relegation zone when a heavy defeat at Manchester City was compounded by Fulham’s unexpected success at Leicester. Sean Dyche and his players will have to keep a wary eye on Fulham if they are going to make a habit of that sort of thing, but first they need to take something from Everton and show they are capable of restoring Turf Moor’s reputation as a difficult place to visit.

Burnley vs Everton: What’s been said
Both managers know the importance of starting their hectic Christmas schedules with some much-needed points on the board.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: “We came away from what we were good at and it showed in a heavy defeat [at City].
“We’ve got to get back to what we know we can deliver. The Palace game was a good show of it: working both ends of the pitch well and tying it together with the right work ethic and belief in the middle part of the game.
“At the minute, we’re OK and we want to make sure we get more points on the board quickly because it does align you better with what the rest of the season will behold, hopefully.”

Ancelotti said: “Of course the result was not good against Leeds, but it was an open game. We want to stay attached to the top of the table so it will be important to have a result tomorrow.
“This season, there is a lot of competition in front. We are still in front, we want to stay attached and prepare well for the second part of the season. We are where we want to be in this moment.”
