Everton v Burnley

Fantastic team goal keeps Clarets unbeaten away from home as they move up to sixth

Burnley moved into the top six as they continued their superb away form with a 1-0 success at Everton.

Unbeaten at Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool this season, Burnley led through Jeff Hendrick's composed finish after Stephen Ward made the 24th pass of a brilliant team move on 21 minutes.

In response, Gylfi Sigurdsson's shot lacked power to beat Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope in the first half.

Oumar Niasse, making his first PL start of 2017/18 after his winning double against AFC Bournemouth, headed off target and Ashley Williams' effort was deflected wide as Everton could not find a way past a resolute Burnley defence led by man-of-the-match James Tarkowski.

Burnley are sixth on 13 points, while Everton drop to 16th with seven points this term.
