Burnley captain Steven Caldwell will miss the visit of Everton to Turf Moor on Sunday as he continues his recovery from a groin problem.

The defender was injured on international duty with Scotland and has missed the Clarets' opening two Premier League matches.

Andre Bikey is expected to retain his place in the team after impressing in the midweek victory over Manchester United just 24 hours after signing from Reading - but defender Michael Duff is still struggling with an ankle injury which has kept him out of the first two matches.

Everton have doubts over midfielders Jack Rodwell and Steven Pienaar.

The pair were both hurt in Thursday night's Europa League play off first-leg win over Sigma Olomouc at Goodison Park, with Rodwell scoring twice in the 4-0 success.

Rodwell has a twisted knee while Pienaar picked up a foot injury. Everton are also unlikely to have Joleon Lescott back in the squad after he was dropped against the Czech Republic outfit for his poor attitude.

Teams:

Burnley (from): Jensen, Eckersley, Edgar, Bikey, Carlisle, Alexander, Mears, Jordan, Kalvenes, Eagles, Blake, McCann, McDonald, Gudjonsson, Easton, Thompson, Rodriguez, Paterson, Elliott, Fletcher, Penny.

Everton (from): Howard, Hibbert, Neville, Yobo, Baines, Osman, Cahill, Rodwell, Gosling, Fellaini, Pienaar, Vaughan, Saha, Jo, Nash, Duffy, Baxter, Wallace, Agard.

Burnley v Everton

Wednesday's victory over Manchester United was just a fantastic result for Burnley and they will go into this game riding a wave of euphoria.

I saw Everton manager David Moyes watching in the crowd, though, and he will know exactly what to expect. The question is can Burnley reproduce that performance time and again - I'm going to argue that they can't.

As for Everton, they need to sell Joleon Lescott and they need to do it now. The fella doesn't want to play for them, they can get £20m or so and strengthen the squad, so just do the deal, say thanks very much and goodbye to him.

Do that, and win here as I expect them to, and that will give the Everton fans something to crow about.

Verdict: 0-2

Burnley vs Everton
Burnley got the result of their season on Wednesday night, beating the incumbant champions in their first home game in the top flight for 33 years. Burnley can't afford to relax and must put in the same effort and work rate for another 36 Premier league games and they might just survive.

Everton can't afford to hang onto Lescott for too much longer as the saying goes if he doesn't want to play for them get rid, And quickly so they have time to bring in a replacement. Can Everton put the disruption out of their minds and get the 3 points?

Mystic Jarv Predicts Burnley to work their socks off and get a 1-1 Draw

MATCH PREVIEW

A freak result or a signpost for the season? The prospects for these two sides are unclear after unexpected, and contrasting, results in the opening week.

While Burnley were quick to home in on top-flight glory with the scalp of champions Manchester United, Everton were still smarting from their 6-1 defeat to Arsenal at Goodison Park.

Of course, fortunes can quickly change. The last time Burnley hosted United in the top-flight they were relegated, while Everton were humbled 4-1 at home by Arsenal on the opening day of the 2004/05 season but went on to earn Champions League qualification.

Everton rebounded in midweek with a four-goal Europa League win. But they might not find it so easy to find a way past Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen.

Nicknamed The Beast, Jensen used his sizeable frame to great effect against Manchester United. The Dane was already a popular figure, having had a five-foot sausage made in his honour at a local butcher earlier this year.


MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

• These clubs met for the 104th, and most recent, time in January 1976.

• Burnley are unbeaten in their last five meetings against Everton, with two wins and three draws in the top flight.

Burnley

• Burnley are vying for a seventh successive home league win.

• This is their 80th league game under Owen Coyle (W33, D21, L25)

• If fit, and selected, Michael Duff will make his 350th career league start.

Everton

• Everton have never lost their opening two games in a Premier League season.

• They are unbeaten in their last four away games (W2, D2).

• Tim Cahill is poised for his 350th career league appearance, and Leighton Baines his 200th.

1636: Justice is done at Turf Moor as Louis Saha puts his penalty wide of Brian Jensen's right-hand post after Tony Hibbert fools referee Phil Dowd into awarding the spot-kick. Hibbert bursts into the box and though Chris McCann pulls out of the challenge, the Everton right-back goes over anyway.

1635: EVERTON MISS PENALTY Burnley 1-0 Everton

1634: PENALTY TO EVERTON

Burnley 1 up and Away team miss a penalty, Sounds a little like Deja vu

1654: FULL-TIME Burnley 1-0 Everton

1652: Everton have a free-kick... but Jo wallops it straight into the wall. The ball comes back in from the right but Jack Rodwell heads over the bar. Surely that's it now.

Didn't see that result coming........obviously i predicted 1-1

Burnley secured their second successive 1-0 win in the Premier League after beating Everton 1-0 at Turf Moor.

The win follows Wednesday night's shock victory over Manchester United and leaves Burnley with six points from a possible nine in an impressive start to life in the Premier League.

The only goal of the game came on 34 minutes as lively winger Wade Elliott found the corner via a deflection off Everton captain Phil Neville.

The goal came against the run of play as the away side were beginning to boss the game after a turbulent opening which saw Burnley waste numerous chances.

Toffees striker Louis Saha made matters worse for manager David Moyes as he missed a second half penalty after Tony Hibbert was judged to have been fouled by Chris McCann in the box.

The defeat means Everton are without a point from their opening two games which leaves them bottom of the table on goal difference following their 6-1 drubbing by Arsenal last week.
Bright start

The Clarets knew if they were to replicate the United result they had to begin well and they almost got off to the perfect start after just 40 seconds.

McCann found space on the left to swing over a cross and goalkeeper Tim Howard could only stand and watch as Martin Paterson's header rebounded off the crossbar.

The ball dropped to Steven Fletcher who forced the American into a low save.

Two minutes later Paterson had another great chance, this time from Elliott's right-wing cross, but he headed wide.

Everton were ruffled by their opponents' high-tempo start, although it was not just the energy but the football Burnley were playing which was causing them problems.

Manager Moyes, who had spent much of the pre-match warm-up prowling the pitch with arms folded as he kept a beady eye on his players, was distinctly unimpressed.

A flowing move involving left-back Stephen Jordan, Robbie Blake and McCann saw the latter cross to the far post and although Phil Neville only half-cleared his header Fletcher skewed a shot horribly wide.

Andre Bikey's foul on Saha presented Everton with their first real shooting opportunity but Jack Rodwell drove a 30-yard free-kick into the wall before then heading straight at goalkeeper Brian Jensen from Leighton Baines' corner.

Right-back Hibbert almost set up Saha after Marouane Fellaini's clever reverse pass but the sliding French striker could not divert the ball goalwards.

Burnley deservedly took the lead in the 34th minute through Elliott.

The midfielder and Paterson had both fluffed their attempts at Blake's right-wing cross but Fletcher turned the ball back to Elliott and as no-one closed him down he picked his spot just inside Howard's right-hand post and curled home his shot.

Less than three minutes into the second half Elliott was booked for an innocuous foul on Fellaini but Burnley showed no signs of easing off and Howard only just snatched the ball off the head of Clarke Carlisle from Blake's inswinging corner.

Saha's 25-yard effort in the 56th minute, from McCann's weak clearance, summed up Everton's afternoon as it sailed high over Jensen's crossbar.

Tim Cahill had swapped with Fellaini to play a deeper central midfield role in the second half but the first time he drove forward he looked threatening and had a shot deflected for a corner.

But Burnley were still creating the majority of the chances and when Graham Alexander's half-hit shot looped up to McCann in the penalty area his overhead kick was tipped over by a stretching Howard in the 63rd minute.

Moyes replaced Fellaini with Jo in an attempt to provide more support for the isolated Saha and take advantage of Burnley dropping deeper defending their slim lead.

Penalty

The pressure was beginning to grow on the home side Everton were gifted a route back into the match in the 75th minute when referee Phil Dowd awarded a penalty against McCann despite television replays showing Hibbert had gone down without a touch in the area.

However, justice was done as Saha pulled his spot-kick wide of Jensen's left-hand post.

Coyle replaced the hard-working Paterson with Chris Eagles and late on gave on-loan winger Fernando Guerrero his home debut but the Ecuadorian had little chance to show off his talents as Burnley spent the closing moments defending desperately.

This week's results sent a warning, if any were needed, to the rest of the Premier League that Turf Moor will be a difficult place to come this season.
