Adrian Clarke looks at key tactical points in Matchweek 11.
A 5-0 defeat at Manchester City was a rare off day in defence for Burnley, who know their lack of goals is a more concerning issue.
The Clarets have failed to spark as an attacking force, scoring only four times in nine Premier League matches.
Indeed, their one goal at Turf Moor this season came in their only win of the season, against Crystal Palace last month.
The visit of Everton gives Burnley an opportunity to improve on their disappointing home record.
Everton are without a clean sheet since their opening-day victory at Tottenham Hotspur.
But to capitalise on their opponents' weakness and pick up a second successive home win, Burnley must find a way to be more creative.
|Fewest chances created||Fewest chances created/open play|
Burnley have created the fewest chances of all 20 top-flight teams.
However, 10 of their 58 opportunities have been regarded by Opta as "big chances", which indicates a lack of ruthlessness in their finishing.
Indeed, heading into Matchweek 11 only Sheffield United, with 5.71 per cent, have a lower shot conversion rate than the 6.35 per cent recorded by Burnley.
This drop from a 14.53 per cent conversion rate last season has really impacted Burnley's results.
Instead of scoring once every 79.5 minutes, the Clarets have waited 202.5 minutes for each goal in 2020/21.
Central defender James Tarkowski's seven shots is the third-highest total of any Burnley player and reflects their struggles in open play.
To exert their influence against a talented Everton side, Burnley need central midfielder Westwood to be a dominant figure.
The 30-year-old has been a consistent performer this season.
He has made twice the number of accurate passes into the final third of any team-mate.
And despite the team's struggles this term, Westwood has made 10 extra passes per 90 minutes compared to his average in 2019/20.
|Succ. passes opp. half||Westwood||236||Brownhill||167|
|Succ. passes ending in final third||Westwood||114||Brownhill||57|
Westwood continues to outshine the highly-rated Dwight McNeil when it comes to creating chances.
With 12 key passes to his name, including nine from open play, Westwood's accurate distribution has become one of Burnley's main threats.
A vulnerable Everton side must be wary of Westwood if they are to avoid a fifth defeat in six matches.
