The Clarets were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City in their most recent outing, while Everton went down 1-0 at home to Leeds United.
Eleven points separate the sides heading into this opening Premier League fixture of the weekend, with the Toffees in eighth and their opponents in the bottom three.
In what has been a year of uncertainty, there was almost a sense of inevitability about the outcome of Burnley's trip to Man City last weekend.
Dyche tried something different in terms of tactics, but any momentum built from the previous week's 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace may well have been lost.
That was the Clarets' only win of the campaign so far and they are now seeking consecutive Premier League home victories for the first time since October 2019.
The second win in that sequence came against Everton, making it four wins in six home top-flight meetings with the Toffees.
Scoring has been a major issue for the home side, with no team netting fewer than their four goals, but Everton are not exactly known for their strong defensive record.
Since shutting out Tottenham Hotspur on the opening weekend, Carlo Ancelotti's charges have conceded in nine Premier League games running - only Sheffield United (13) are on a longer run without a clean sheet.
The Toffees have lost four of their last five games heading into this one, the exception being a tight 3-2 win over Fulham in their most recent away outing.
Going back into last season, though, Everton have won four of their last six matches on their travels. Burnley, by comparison, have four home wins in their last 13 outings, losing four in a row before their win over Palace.

Ancelotti persisted with a five-man defence against Leeds, but Tom Davies did not look comfortable as a right wing-back and a tactical rethink may be required.
Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Benson; McNeil; Rodriguez, Wood
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Godfrey, Mina, Keane; Davies, Allan, Doucoure, Iwobi; Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
We say: Burnley 1-2 Everton
Everton have badly lost their way after a really strong start to the season and have an extremely tough run of games to come after this trip to Turf Moor.
If not quite must win, anything less than three points in Lancashire will be considered a poor result for the Toffees, who have aspirations of challenging for a European spot.
None of the 12 Premier League games between Burnley and Everton has been drawn - the Clarets winning five to the Toffees' seven - and we are going with an away win this weekend.
