Two struggling sides at the wrong end of the Premier League table will lock horns in a relegation battle at Turf Moor on Wednesday night as Burnley play host to Everton.
The Toffees are hovering three points above the drop zone in 17th place, while the Clarets are positioned four points further back in 19th having played the same number of games.
After losing all three league matches in March without scoring, Burnley extended this miserable run when they suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Premier League leaders Manchester City last weekend.
Sean Dyche’s men were unsurprisingly outclassed by the Citizens, with goals inside the first 25 minutes from Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan condemning the Clarets to their 13th defeat of the campaign.
Burnley’s evident defensive frailties and lack of quality in the final third are hampering their hopes of survival, with their six-year stay in the top flight now at serious risk as they head into their final 10 games of the season.
If they are to return to winning ways, then their midweek clash with fellow strugglers Everton could be the perfect fixture for them, considering they have won more Premier League home matches against the Toffees (four) than they have against any other team in the division.
With another huge match against Norwich City coming up on Sunday, as well as an encounter at Watford at the end of this month, April could prove to be a defining period for the Clarets in their bid to avoid the drop.
Burnley captain Ben Mee is a major doubt with a calf injury and Nathan Collins is suspended, so Kevin Long is set to continue alongside James Tarkowski at centre-back.
Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf), Matej Vydra (elbow) and Erik Pieters (knee) are also unavailable for selection due to injury.
Dyche is unlikely to make too many changes, if any, to his starting lineup, but Maxwel Cornet could be handed a start on the left flank at the expense of Dwight McNeil, who was replaced by the former at half time against Man City.
Wout Weghorst is set to lead the line up front once again, and the Dutchman will be hoping for more joy in the final third on Wednesday, after failing to register a single shot or touch in the opposition’s box in his last two league matches.
As for Everton, they have a lengthy injury list, with Donny van de Beek (thigh) the latest name to join Nathan Patterson (ankle), Andre Gomes (knock), Andros Townsend (ACL), Yerry Mina (muscle), Tom Davies (knee) and Fabian Delph (hamstring) on the treatment table.
Seamus Coleman missed last weekend’s game due to illness but the Irishman could return to the first XI ahead of Jonjoe Kenny or Vitaliy Mykolenko if he is deemed fit to play.
With former Burnley man Michael Keane and midfielder Allan unavailable due to suspension, Jarrad Branthwaite is set to be handed a start alongside Ben Godfrey at centre-back, with Holgate to continue in centre-midfield with Abdoulaye Doucoure.
