Carlo Ancelotti takes charge of Everton for the first time as the in-form Toffees look to make it four matches without defeat.

Everton report no new injury concerns, with Alex Iwobi (hamstring), Andre Gomes (ankle), Jean Phillipe-Gbamin (thigh), Theo Walcott and Morgan Schneiderlin (both calf) and Beni Baningime (shin) sidelined.

Jeff Hendrick serves a one-match ban and misses out for Burnley.

Clarets' winger Aaron Lennon (illness) and Ben Gibson (groin) are doubts, but Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) is expected to be available.
