Everton fans make same point about Coleman after Burnley loss

A GLEEFUL SEAN Dyche credited his side's mental toughness after Burnley achieved their first Premier-League comeback win under his tutelage with a 2-1 victory over Everton at Turf Moor.

"It's something we need to sort out and start winning games quickly".

Everton lead Burnley 1-0 midway through the first half after the January transfer window £27 million signing Cenk Tosun scored his first goal for the Toffees.

Everton fans expect far more than that, they want big signings and good, exciting football. I thought he was brought in to keep them up and he's kept them up quicker than they thought he would.

He has always done his best work with smaller clubs, getting them to over achieve with smart transfer moves and by making life hard for their opponents.

Sam Allardyce felt Everton "gifted" victory to Burnley after his struggling side were beaten for the fifth successive away game in the Premier League.

Everton had the first real scoring opportunity on 14 minutes as DCL found Sigurdsson and he danced his way to the bye line before cutting the ball back invitingly for Walcott or the onrushing Davies with the former somehow blazing over from eight yards when it looked easier to score.

Everton have a number of injury woes, with Eliaquim Mangala, Ramiro Funes Mori and James McCarthy out, although they could have Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka and Seamus Coleman back after injuries.

What TV channel is Burnley vs Everton on?

Burnley dominated possession and set about trying to find an equaliser.

Jordan Pickford was Everton's only positive in the second half as he superbly kept the goal and flicked a powerful header from Ben Mee.

"Some quality moments in it, especially the pass from [Matt] Lowton [for Barnes' goal]". Chris Wood, making his return as a substitute after more than two months out with a knee injury, jumped above Keane to head in Johann Gudmundsson's corner, and cement Burnley's standing in seventh place.

"Ashley Williams getting sent off sums our day up", added Allardyce.

The result sees Burnley reach the 40-point mark in the Premier League table courtesy of their first win since mid-December, whereas Everton remain in ninth and have now lost their last six away games across all competitions.
