Everton fans turn on Sam Allardyce after loss to Burnley

03 March 2018

Burnley returned to winning ways, after 11 matches without a victory, with Saturday's 2-1 win over Everton at Turf Moor and manager Sean Dyche praised his team's resilience. I questioned some things last week, [we were] below par against Swansea but it's important not to go too far below our performance level. "At least three in the first half", he told BBC Sport.

"Burnley hadn't won in 11 and if we went 2-0 up it would have been hugely hard for them".

"We gifted them a goal which lifted the spirits around the ground".

Guy Mowbray: "It was on the second weekend of December - 12 long, cold weeks ago - that Burnley last won and Everton last won away". We're not good enough away from home but we're good enough at home. "They didn't go down after going behind and the second half response was excellent", he added. "It's my problem to sort it out".

"Ashley Williams getting sent off sums our day up".

The defender played the full duration of Burnley's behind-closed-doors friendly against Preston on Tuesday and is "certainly in the thinking" for tomorrow, Dyche said.

They have now lost 19 competitive games this season - their most in a single campaign since an abject 21 recorded in the 2005/06 campaign.

The result marked the first time Burnley have won a Premier League match after conceding the first goal, and took them to the 40-point mark.

I'm not saying we don't want to win, of course we do, but over a season the points we have is very pleasing.

"Some quality moments in it, especially the pass from [Matt] Lowton [for Barnes' goal]". Crowds are more powerful than ever, with social media streams, but I know Sam a little bit and he will stick to what is right and proper to get results for the team.

Supporters' discontent may not sit well with Allardyce, who is now managing the seventh Premier League club of his career, but the former England manager knows that results will determine his future, as they will for every coach.

Burnley remained a threat themselves as long as they were allowed to get crosses into the box from the flanks and it took a tremendous save from Jordan Pickford to keep the home side out with half an hour gone. I feel like I have really settled in now and started to play the best football I have played since I have been here, consistently. We wanted to correct the run and we have done that.

"So, hopefully, we can improve again".
