Everton boss Sam Allardyce rues missed chances at Burnley

James Tarkowski

Burnley ended an 11-match winless run in the Premier League as Chris Wood's late header sealed a 2-1 victory over Everton on Saturday. They are a great group of lads and have some good quality players.

Ahead of the game, manager Sam Allardyce had claimed big signing Tosun was struggling to adapt to English football because of the weather, and he responded by scoring his first goal for the club on the coldest weekend of the season to put Everton in the lead - nodding after Seamus Coleman flicked on Theo Walcott's cross.

"We should be coming here, especially the form they're in, we should be looking at three points".

Burnley had never won having conceded first under Sean Dyche in the top flight, so it seemed quite apt to leave it until the Turf Moor chief's 250th game in charge of the club to do it.

Burnley won the reverse fixture at Goodison Park back in October - they've not won both league games against Everton in a season since the 1959-60 campaign, when they won the top-flight title. It'll be good to see Aaron on the pitch again, I just hope it goes poorly for him in this particular game.

Seven defeats in the last 10 and six successive away losses have turned life under Allardyce into the inescapable nightmare many predicted it would be and this miserable season crawls toward its conclusion. That lifted Burnley's spirits when really, in the first half, with all the very, very good chances we created, we should have been 2-0 up.

"The fans travelled through the snow to get here and we let them down badly". I go home and say to myself'How do I put this right?' For me to see the players under-perform in the second half is very disappointing for me. "It's my problem to sort it out".

The midfielder was handed the task of keeping Chelsea dangerman Eden Hazard quiet when the two teams clashed at Old Trafford. McTominary was born in England but because his father is from Scotland , he can represent either nation.

Adding insult to injury for Williams, the Everton defender was sent off in the 86th minute after swinging his arm into Barnes' face.

His captain, Ashley Williams, like Michael Keane, left shaken by the battering Ashley Barnes bestowed...

The Burnley right-back put in a solid defensive performance and provided a fantastic through-ball for Barnes' victor.

Sigurdsson looked odds on to restore the away side's lead when his inventive feint sold Lowton but the forward guided his finish wide of the far post.

Burnley has the worst xG in the entire Premier League. Burnley were getting second balls when we should have been challenging. I wanted to be proactive.

"I thought we took on the second half with a real energy, a objective and a belief in what we do and I was really pleased with that". We wanted to correct the run and we have done that.

"And so going into this game the idea was to bring, or hopefully bring, that freedom into our performance".
