World news – Everton 1-2 Burnley: Dwight McNeil scores as Clarets exit the relegation zone



The highlights of reports and games as goals from Chris Wood and Dwight McNeil – absolutely insane – mean more misery at Goodison Park for Carlo Ancelotti’s men in the Premier League

Burnley stormed off with an impressive 2: 1 win at Everton from the relegation zone that missed the chance to approach the top four places in the Premier League.

The men of Sean Dyche attacked with great cohesion and courage, with Chris Wood opening the standings ( 13) before Dwight McNeil put in an impressive performance from distance (24).

Dominic Calvert-Lewin halved the deficit for the hosts (32), but that was just as good as for Carlo Ancelotti, who is also his goalkeeper Jordan Pickford lost to an injury in the first half.

Fulham’s recent form has put teams above them like Burnley under pressure, but that win puts Sean Dyche’s men seven points out of the relegation zone before the Cottagers on Saturday at home against leaders Manchester City.

Since winning their first two home games, Everton have only won three of their last twelve games at Goodison Park, including losses to Fulham, Newcastle and now Burnley. The Toffees stay sixth, five points behind the top four.

Everton: Pickford (7), Godfrey (7), Keane (6), Holgate (6), Digne (6), Allan (6), Gomes ( 7), Iwobi (5), Davies (6), Richarlison (7)), Calvert-Lewin (7) Subs: Virginia (6), King (6), Coleman (6)

Burnley: Pope (7), Lowton (7), Tarkowski (7), Mee (8), Pieters (7), Brownhill (7), Westwood (8), Gudmundsson (8), McNeil (9), Vyrda (9 )), Wood (8) Subs: Brady (7), Rodriguez (7)

Man of the game: Dwight McNeil
