James Tarkowski in line for Burnley return against Everton

Let's give Burnley some credit, they wanted it. Aaron Lennon was a constant thorn in the side of the Everton defence and the number of crosses that the Burnley wide men threw into the Everton area was always likely to reap an eventual reward. He will now miss the next three games.

Substitute Wood headed in Johann Berg Gudmundsson's corner for the victor while Everton skipper Ashley Williams was sent off four minutes from time for a swipe at Ashley Barnes, who cancelled out Cenk Tosun's first-half opener for the visitors.

However, a wave of pressure in the second half forced Everton to crumble as Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood secured a valuable three points for the home side before, Ashley Williams was sent off after a tussle in the box. Pickford felt he was fouled but referee Christopher Kavanagh saw nothing wrong as Wood headed in Gudmundsson's corner virtually from on the line. Click any of these buttons below!

Allardyce prompted more boos from the seething away end when he hooked Sigurdsson in favour of Yannick Bolasie with seven minutes left but the last incident of note wouldn't be an Everton equaliser but the latest chapter in Williams's catalog of shame.

Fellow defenders Seamus Coleman (thigh), Leighton Baines (ankle) and Phil Jagielka are all expected to return to the squad.

"Burnley hadn't won in 11 and if we went 2-0 up it would have been hugely hard for them".

"They needed someone to get them out of trouble and he got them out of trouble very quickly".

Instead they are now languishing six points behind seventh-placed Burnley.

Sam Allardyce has dismissed supporter backlash in Everton's defeat to Burnley.

Everton have endured just as much disappointment on their travels, winning just once in 22 Premier League games, including a run of four successive defeats in recent matches.

Chances continued to come with Barnes forcing a fine fingertip save from Pickford, the striker prematurely celebrating after thinking his header from a Matt Lowton cross was in.

In typical fashion, many Everton fans took to Twitter to express their feelings over news of McCarthy's return.
