Everton 2 Burnley 0

The Clarets were unable to avenge their Boxing Day defeat to Everton, but this time didn’t go down without a fight as they wound up their campaign on the road. 

 The 5-1 loss to the Toffees at Turf Moor proved the turning point in Burnley’s season as they dusted themselves down to launch an unbeaten eight-game run which propelled them out of the bottom three and towards Premier League safety.

 The outcome at Goodison Park was ultimately the same as Everton made it four successive home wins to keep alive their hopes of finishing seventh and potentially following the Clarets’ route into the Europa League.

 But despite conceding two early goals, there was to be no collapse this time as Sean Dyche’s men rallied and dominated most of the second half.

 Critically, though, they were denied a blatant-looking penalty for a shove on substitute Matej Vydra and ultimately a slow start cost them dearly as the Merseysiders hung on to sign off in front of their own fans on a high.

 With top-flight status already assured and a big effort behind them, there were fresh legs introduced in two changes to the Clarets’ starting line-up as Dyche swapped both his wide men.

 Johann Berg Gudmundsson replaced Jeff Hendrick for his first start since mid-March, while Dwight McNeil was given a breather following his monumental contribution since coming into the side following the Christmas set-back against Marco Silva's men.
