Overview

  • Ronald Koeman’s position is under more serious threat after another poor performance resulted in another defeat for Everton.
  • Everton had a promising start. In the opening 20 minutes, they had 5 shots (2 on target) to Burnley’s 1 and 58% possession.
  • However, Jeff Hendrick scored his first Premier League goal since December 2016 to break the deadlock and Everton failed to pose a threat since.
  • They had 18 shots since Hendrick’s goal, but only 2 were on target.
  • They showed their desperation by shouting for a penalty for handball twice in the latter stages of the game, but neither were legitimate calls for a penalty.
  • Burnley’s solid defence meant Everton resorted to go for the extraordinary and shoot from outside the box.
    • Everton had 15 shots from outside the box in the entire, but only two were on target. Wasteful.
  • The international break has come and Everton’s next match will be against Brighton in a couple of weeks.
