Everton manager Sam Allardyce realistic over tenure but 'surprised' by future speculation

Burnley vs Everton – Betting Tips and Predictions		Posted by Vyom Chaudhary

"Ashley Williams getting sent off sums our day up". Hoping to complete a league double over the Blues in his 250th game in charge, Dyche, now the third longest serving manager in the Premier League selected his line-up: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee (c), Ward, Lennon, Cork, Westwood, Gudmundsson, Hendrick and Barnes.

Sam Allardyce has defended his decision to take off Cenk Tosun after it was met by anger from Everton fans in the away end at Burnley.

A miserable afternoon was compounded for the out-of-form visitors when Ashley Williams capped off a poor personal performance with a red card in the closing stages as Everton were left with only one win from their last 23 Premier League away games.

"We lost it by not scoring the second goal when we had clear, clear opportunities", Allardyce told BBC Sport. The set piece saw Mee get his header past Pickford but come back off the crossbar, the follow-up going safely over for a goal kick.

Walcott was again unable to match good build-up play with a finish as he then poked a shot weakly at Pope. The goal meant Burnley had learnt a lesson and they certainly did not repeat their mistakes in the second half. I thought he was brought in to keep them up and he's kept them up quicker than they thought he would.

The key to beating Pickford turned out to be a precision through ball from the right from Matthew Lowton that took out the entire Everton defence. With Pickford uncharacteristically hesitant on his line, the striker rapped it past him and wiped out Everton's lead.




Everton manager Sam Allardyce admits he is "surprised" by speculation over his future at Goodison Park and insists the troubled Toffees are in a "great position" despite being just seven points above the relegation zone with 10 matches of the season remaining.

Even an Everton fan couldn't argue with Carragher.

That miss looked very costly when, moments later, Burnley netted the victor.

Burnley pair James Tarkowski and Chris Wood are back in contention after returning from injuries.

Travelling fans also reacted negatively to Everton substituting Gylfi Sigurdsson in favour of Yannick Bolasie later in the game.
