Everton’s dismal home form continued with a disappointing defeat to Burnley – their seventh home defeat of the season.
Burnley raced into a quick 2-0 lead with two quality finishes from Wood and McNeil, before Calvert-Lewin pulled one back for Everton on 32 minutes.
Burnley were pretty comfortable from then on, with Everton lacking not only the quality, but intensity needed to get a result.

It was another unacceptable home defeat for Everton against a relegation-threatened side, which made it 7 losses in the last 11 games at Goodison Park. Dreadful. Burnley opened the scoring through Chris Wood and doubled their lead when Dwight McNeil glided past Allan and curled an absolute worldie into the top-left corner. DCL scored his 14th league goal of the season later in the first half, but Everton couldn’t muster up anything else despite controlling the game for the final hour almost exclusively. Everton’s charity campaign for teams in the relegation scrap has been very effective this season. It’s sickening to watch as an Evertonian. I apologise for my brevity with these readings, but I’d be lying if I said I wanted to go into more detail about this pathetic loss, and I’d be shocked if you wanted to read more about it either! Without further ado, here are my player ratings for Everton 1-2 Burnley.
