Everton bounced back from their drubbing against Tottenham by inflicting a third defeat in a row on hapless Burnley, who appear to have forgotten all the qualities that took them to a seventh-place finish in the table last season.
Six goals that stunned Everton illustrated the Tottenham manager’s coaching brilliance with limited means
The applause came from all four corners of Goodison Park. The Premier League’s most consistent overachiever was bound for Manchester United, a manager who had never secured a major trophy identified to take over from a serial winner, a Chosen One to succeed a Special One.

The last time Everton beat Tottenham Gylfi Sigurdsson came off the bench to try to grab an equaliser for Harry Redknapp in December 2012. Six years later and the Iceland midfielder is key to Everton’s chances. If given the freedom to create for Richarlison then Marco Silva’s side have a great chance to arrest their run of four games without a win. A rather large if considering Everton failed to score in either fixture last season.

Manchester City did not have things completely their own way against Everton, so in emerging with the win the champions illustrated why they remained title favourites despite losing top spot last Saturday. They also leapfrogged Liverpool to become leaders again, at the very least until Manchester United visit Anfield on Sunday.
Everton arrived as the only side not to lose here in the two league outings since Pep Guardiola took over and left with that record shredded.
