Everton stunned by Burnley blow
They're still over an hour from kicking-off, but one of the most important goals of Everton's season may have just been scored.
Moments ago, Matej Vydra struck to put Burnley 1-0 ahead at home to Wolves with around 25 minutes remaining.
The scoreline leaves the Toffees in the relegation zone and trailing the Clarets by two points with two games in hand.

Everton met by red wall
Traditionally, local derbies are tight, cagey affairs with the spoils often shared and separated over a short number of seasons.
However, it's far from being the case when it comes to these two sides.
In fact, Everton have won just one of the last 22 Premier League meetings with their near neighbours (D9 L12) over the past 11 campaigns.
The good news for any Toffees fans desperately seeking some hope ahead of today's latest match is that they don't have too far to look.
Everton's one win in that period was this exact fixture last term when a 2-0 win at Anfield was settled by Richarlison's early opener and a late Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty.

Toffees 14/1 for shock win
Unsurprisingly, the bookies give hapless Everton little chance of causing a huge derby upset at Anfield that would simultaneously dent their rivals' title ambitions while helping their cause to avoid the drop.
- Liverpool win 1/5
- Draw 6/1
- Everton win 14/1
Odds from Betfair correct at the time of post publication.

It's derby day on Merseyside
Good afternoon and welcome to our live coverage of the Premier League match between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield.
There have been few Merseyside derbies in recent decades as important to matters at both ends of the table and, perhaps more than ever, both sets of fans will be desperate for the win.
A home win will move Liverpool back within a point of leaders Manchester City with five games remaining, and keep the dreams of an unprecedented quadruple very much alive.
For the blue half of the city, however, things are looking much more bleak.
As it stands – with Burnley drawing at home to Wolves – Everton find themselves in the relegation zone.
Including today, the Toffees do have two games in hand, but they count for little when victories are so hard to come by.
Frank Lampard's team have lost seven in succession away from home, and even Goodison's most optimistic supporter would find it hard to make a case for that run ending this weekend.
Yet this is the football, this is the Premier League, and stranger things have happened.
The action gets underway at 4.30pm, and we'll soon have the all-important team news as part of our pre-match build-up.
