Everton’s trip to Turf Moor was yet another disappointing one as they failed to break down the Burnley defence and left Lancashire with their fourth consecutive defeat in the League.

As had been the standard for almost all games preceding this one, Everton started the game the stronger of the sides and took the game to the Clarets. Sigurdsson had a free-kick saved by goalkeeper Nick Pope and Iwobi got a golden opportunity just outside the six-yard area but struck a ball on the turn right at the Burnley defender, leaving the game goalless at half-time.

With ten minutes gone in the second half, the Blues were dealt a severe blow when captain Seamus Coleman picked up his second booking and was sent off. Taking advantage of their extra man, Burnley began to grow into the game and the only goal of the game came when Irish midfielder Jeff Hendrick was left unmarked and met Ashley Westwood’s corner with a controlled volley.

Coupled with this loss and the weekend’s other results, Everton dropped into the relegation zone and serious questions were being asked of manager Marco Silva.
