Full-Time: Everton 0-1 Burnley (Emotional Day for Ronald Koeman)

Moshiri thinks the supporters deserve better but believes a tough run of fixtures and injury problems are factors behind Everton's poor run of results.

Koeman was defiant after the loss to Burnley - their fifth in eight games and following on from the midweek draw at home to Cypriot minnows Apollon.

Everton are now 14th in the Premier League table after defeating Bournemouth 2-1 at home last Saturday.

Furthermore, the Italian newspaper there's every chance the 56-year-old could travel to Liverpool in the next few days, presumably for talks with Everton.

Seamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie are huge losses, I would also say Ross Barkley, but lets not forget Koeman has already told him he can leave the club.

Everton spent big in the summer after selling Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for £75million.

"There are no Barcelona statements, I can assure you", said manager Sean Dyche.

We are certainly confident we can go to Everton and give them a game because our away form has been particularly good.

Everton striker Wayne Rooney thought he should have had a penalty late on when his flick-on from Gylfi Sigurdsson's cross bounced on to Matthew Lowton's arm and Koeman said: "You know, sometimes you get the help of a referee".

"People have branded us with one style of playing but I think we're slowly proving them wrong and showing we can score all sorts of goals".

"I'm too long in this job to lose my confidence, but yes, I'm anxious about the situation and how we can turn it around", said the Everton boss.

"Maybe in this situation it's good to have an global break but it's all about the game in two weeks and that's what we have to prepare for". "To have eyes in the back of his head and backheel to me was fantastic".

"I understand whistles by half-time, I understand everybody being really disappointed about the final result, but they can't complain about the attitude of the players". We seem to have learned from that now and this season we might be able to show people how good we are.

But despite a refreshed line-up, with Wayne Rooney left on the bench, the hosts produced another uninspiring display, Jeff Hendrick's 21st-minute strike proving to be the victor for Burnley.
