Wednesday’s clash between Burnley and Everton at Turf Moor may well be the swing game for both team’s relegation worries (watch live, 2:30pm ET Wednesday on Peacock Premium).
Burnley has 21 points through 28 games and has hope of catching Everton, Leeds, or Newcastle should it catch fire, but the Toffees are by far the nearest and most realistic target.
And frankly, that remains stunning for a club that spent a lot of money in the summer and had Rafa Benitez in the manager’s seat to start the season. Rafa’s gone and new boss Frank Lampard has had very little luck aside from a winner against Newcastle a few weeks back.
The Toffees’ 25 points are just four more than the Clarets, so a win from Burnley pulls them a point back with eight games remaining for both teams.
Burnley then has last-place Norwich City on Saturday and, on the whole, a much more forgiving set of fixtures than Everton.
