Maxwel Cornet scored a late match-winner to help Burnley produce one of the high-scoring football scores of the midweek action in the Premier League. Nathan Collins scored the opener in the 12th minute before Richarlison equalized from the penalty spot in the 18th minute. The Brazilian scored his second in the 41st minute before Jay Rodrigues equalized once again in the 41st minute. Just when it looked like both teams would share the points, Cornet scored the winner in the 85th minute.
Burnley manager Sean Dyche: “I’ve been down there, I know what it’s like and every season there have been tough patches for us. It’s hard to explain, but sometimes you sense that a team might have lost how to win a game. I said to them at half time ‘I’m not sure these know how to win a game, away from home particularly’. I told them we’ve got to play on that mentality – we do it by playing forward with better quality and being more aggressive in our play. Our passing and trying to get into the front areas of the pitch wasn’t glorious but there were patches and enough patches where we found three goals and I’m pleased with that.”
Everton manager Frank Lampard: “It feels the same to me, whether that’s true, maybe, but it shouldn’t be in absolute football terms. The reality is what it is – we’re no different to Burnley, Watford, Norwich, or Leeds. That’s where we’re at as a football club. Players don’t need to listen or read anything other than turning up tomorrow and getting the right results to keep us in this league. We can’t control it so there’s no point in delving too much into it, it would’ve been around the club.”
