Burnley vs Everton
3:00pm Saturday October
Jeff Hendrick strike heaped further pressure on Marco Silva as Burnley guaranteed a 1-0 triumph at Turf Moor.
Seamus Coleman was shipped off for a second bookable offence (56) to hands the Clarets the initiative, and Hendrick fulfilled Ashley Westwoods corner to volley home the winner as Evertons weakness in set-pieces was once more exploited.
Silvas Everton side jeopardized in the first half of Alex Iwobi guilty of missing their two best opportunities, but it is now 1 stage from a readily available 12 from Goodison Park, together with the Toffees now in 17th place, one point above the relegation zone.
Move from strength to strength, moving up to fourth at the table following a house Premier League win of this season.
Itll be a long global break for Silva, whose side have now lost four consecutive league games for the first time and the Achilles heel under his tenure contributed to yet more anxieties.
Gylfi Sigurdsson was the first opportunity of the game but Claretskeeper Nick Pope was on hand to trick his free-kick across the post following five minutes.
Burnley then capitalised on the defensive frailties of their opponent since Hendrick fulfilled the deep corner of Johann Berg Gudmundsson only to watch his volley saved Jordan Pickford along with his toes.
Iwobi was adjacent to threaten as he saw his shot deflect wide of the post through Ben Mee when a last-ditch block was produced by Matt Lowton from close variety until he spurned a much better chance.
Coleman was lucky following grabbing Erik Pieters on the ankle to get a yellow card, but referee Graham Scott judged there to have been no malice since the half ended goalless.
Colemans reprieve was short-lived, however, following catching Dwight McNeil in an aerial battle because the Everton captain had been ignored 11 minutes, with referee Scott deeming it worthy of a booking.
The hosts almost made the excess man count instantly as Ashley Barnes and James Tarkowskis flick-on fulfilled but blazed wide. But the corners of Burnley caused Pickford difficulties, and they made one count.
The men of silva didnt learn their lesson out of the first-half opportunity of Hendrick, and also the Republic of Ireland midfielder – who scored the winner against Everton at Goodison two seasons back – was on hand to fire home stunt from the delivery of Westwood.
It was the goal Everton have surrendered from a set-piece under Silva and, while Michael Keane missed a opportunity their lead might have stretched if Jay Rodriguez was refused by Pickford.
Westwood took advantage of the insistence of Everton on zonal indicating with Hendrick lashing in the nail delivery for the defining moment of your game of the midfielder.
However, it that the 29-year-olds complete performance that came out, with the Burnley man regaining possession – more than every other participant, alongside his game-high 2 passes.
Observing the international break, Burnley traveling to confront Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday October 19 at 3pm, while Everton host West Ham earlier on exactly the same afternoon – kick-off reaches 12.30pm.
