Everton vs Burnley Live

Everton vs Burnley Live : Everton vs Burnley Live Stream, The 5-1 home defeat to Everton at Christmas last year was a pivotal result in Burnley’s season. Joe Hart was dropped and a 4-4-2 formation brought back, which brought an almost immediate improvement on the pitch and in the league table as the Clarets climbed out of trouble.

While Marco Silva might be showing outwardly that he’s not feeling the heat of three consecutive losses and insisting that his side not panic, the fanbase is already simmering merrily, and another defeat tomorrow will get the Blue fume triggering smoke alarms citywide.

We’ve already analyzed here and here how Silva needs to be utilizing the resources at his disposal, and needing to go to Turf Moor when you are desperately searching for a win is not good odds.

So with that said, and with Silva’s track record so far, here’s what we think he’s going to do tomorrow.

Tactics and Formation
What I’d like to write in this section is “at this point, who friggin’ knows?”, but I’d like to think you’ve come to expect a higher quality of analysis from us at this stage, so here goes nothing.

Burnley are going to sit deep and absorb pressure. You know it. I know it. Your kids know it. The pet gerbil you’re watching for your neighbor this week knows it. Your dog — who you’ve had to watch very closely because you’re afraid he might try to eat the gerbil? He knows it too.

So Marco Silva’s challenge this week is to figure out how to actually break that down. To this stage of his Everton career, we’ve seen no real signs that he’s able to do that, so we suspect we’ll see a lineup and tactics that look a lot like what we’ve become accustomed to seeing.

As much as I doubt Mr Silva will be sacked anytime soon, it’s beginning to feel like a judgment period from the powers that be. Winnable games on the horizon follow a series of games that should have been won, and weren’t. There doesn’t seem to be any sign of progression, which is the real concern. Everyone knows that Everton Football Club is still a disaster, but there has to be tangible progress out of the half-decade long slump we have been in, and there isn’t anything to suggest that we seem to be heading in the right direction.

Anyway, Turf Moor is a ground where we have seen rare away success, and that needs to be replicated tomorrow lest the fury continue among the stands. But more than just tomorrow, there needs to be a change of plan on the pitch. The formation isn’t working, the players are not gelling, the manager doesn’t have a plan beyond the initial thirty minutes, and the fans are not interested.

Iwobi only came on against City last week because of the injury to Theo Walcott, who got the start on the right wing with Richarlison on the left. Greg O’Keefe of The Athletic reported this week that Silva planned to start Walcott in a striker role before Bernard fell ill, so the Nigerian would have been behind all three of those players on the depth chart in the City match.

We still think he’s clearly shown more than Bernard has, and have some faith (though it’s dwindling) that Silva has seen it as well. But after the weirdness Silva tried to pull against City, it’s tough to make any sort of clear determination about the front three.

Tottenham vs Brighton Live

Tottenham vs Brighton Live : Tottenham vs Brighton Live Stream, Two teams in troubling form meet in Saturday’s early kick-off. Brighton have not won in the league since the impressive opening-day win at Watford, picking up three draws and scoring two goals since. After two games on the road, Brighton & Hove Albion is heading back home. Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 7:30 a.m. ET on Saturday at American Express Community Stadium.

It was all tied up nothing to nothing at halftime, but Brighton was not quite Chelsea’s equal in the second half when they met on Saturday. Brighton fell to Chelsea 2-0. The result was an unpleasant reminder to Brighton of the 3-0 defeat they experienced in the two teams’ previous fixture April 3.

Meanwhile, Spurs got the result they wanted in their first leg against Southampton in Matchweek 7. Tottenham dodged a bullet, finishing off Southampton 2-1. For Tottenham, this is just revenge for the 2-1 loss they suffered against Southampton the last time they faced one another March 9.

When the two teams last met in April, Brighton and Tottenham were neck-and-neck, but Brighton came up empty-handed with a 1-0 defeat. Maybe Brighton will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.

The Seagulls have just one win this campaign – their 3-0 triumph at Watford on the opening day – and Graham Potter’s men will be keen to hit back after the 2-0 loss at Frank Lampard’s Chelsea last Saturday. Brighton after just one point above the relegation places with six points from their first seven matches.

Tottenham are sixth after seven matches and are just one point from the top four. Last time out in the Premier they won 2-1 against Southampton despite being reduced to 10-men after Serge Aurier was sent off for two bookings.

Albion will hope their Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night will drain their energy for Saturday’s early kick-off.

The Portuguese midfielder is fit and in contention for this week, and at 100%, you’d suspect he’s an every-week player. But Morgan Schneiderlin has been decent in his absence, and it’s not impossible that Silva plays it safe, using Gomes in a bench role this week. With an international break separating Everton from its next match, it’s at least a possibility.

Fabian Delph – 7/10

If Gomes does start, we suspect Delph is the favorite to play alongside him. That said, Schneiderlin could also realistically partner with the world’s most handsome midfielder, relegating Delph to a role on the bench.

Gylfi Sigurdsson – 9/10

This is where things start to get interesting. Alex Iwobi could, in theory, play in the No. 10 role and relegate Sigurdsson to the bench. We haven’t seen a prolonged look at it yet, but the more Everton struggles to break down deep-lying opposition, the more possible such an outcome might be.

Richarlison – 10/10

Depending on Silva’s choices elsewhere, we could see the Brazilian on the left or right wing, but he’ll most certainly be starting.

Alex Iwobi – 6/10

Iwobi only came on against City last week because of the injury to Theo Walcott, who got the start on the right wing with Richarlison on the left. Greg O’Keefe of The Athletic reported this week that Silva planned to start Walcott in a striker role before Bernard fell ill, so the Nigerian would have been behind all three of those players on the depth chart in the City match.

We still think he’s clearly shown more than Bernard has, and have some faith (though it’s dwindling) that Silva has seen it as well. But after the weirdness Silva tried to pull against City, it’s tough to make any sort of clear determination about the front three.

Moise Kean – 5/10

That uncertainty extends to striker as well. Could Walcott be back for this match — and if so does Silva try him out up top? Does Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s goal — hilariously awarded as it was — influence the manager’s thinking at all? Is Marco Silva aware that Cenk Tosun is still alive?

We don’t really know the answer to any of these questions, so our guess of Kean as the starter is just that — a guess. Any four of the mentioned players could get the start up top without garnering too much surprise from us.
