Everton gifted Burnley the win, bemoans Allardyce

Everton will head to Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon as they prepare to face Burnley in the lunchtime kick-off, and could be set to welcome back two key players to the side, according to the club's official website. Sean Dyche's men are only one win from the magic 40-point barrier, but they are probably okay already.

Turkish striker Cenk Tosun's header, his first in the Premier League, could not break Everton's away game spell against Burnley, but caused a sensation among Turkish football fans. Coming here with the form they've been in, we should have been looking at three points.

It was from the ground, however, that Burnley equalised in the 56th minute when James Tarkowski pinged a ball behind the lead-footed Keane for Barnes to race onto.

A minute later, Pickford was prompted into more urgent action when, first, he dived to his left to push Lennon's half-volley behind and then got a strong hand to Mee's header from the resulting corner.

Everton's misery was complete in the 86th minute when captain Ashley Williams was shown a straight red card for flinging an arm into the neck of Barnes and he can expect a fine.

In typical fashion, many Everton fans took to Twitter to express their feelings over news of McCarthy's return.

But Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Burnley saw Allardyce the subject of plenty of stick from the away fans.

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 has dismissed supporter backlash in Everton's defeat to Burnley.

Jordan Pickford starts in goal with Seamus Coleman continuing his return from a broken leg at right-back.

Everton coach Sam Allardyce denied on Friday that he was on the cusp of leaving the English club at the end of this football season.
