      As well as achieving their best ever start to a Premier League campaign, Burnley's victory ensures they remain unbeaten away from home and means they have already achieved more points on the road than the whole of the 2016/17 season combined.

      FULL-TIME - EVERTON 0-1 BURNLEY - Jeff Hendrick's first-half goal secures a historic victory for the Clarets, who move onto 12 points to achieve their best ever start to a Premier League season. The victory was fully deserved, as Sean Dyche's side defended superbly from the off by forcing Everton in
    • 0'
      Will Ronald Koeman turn to his substitutes at half time? With Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramirez and Davy Klaassen on the bench, I'm sure he will as his side lost all confidence after going a goal behind. The second half will get underway shortly.

      HALF-TIME - EVERTON 0-1 BURNLEY - Jeff Hendrick's goal has given the away side the lead at the break after he showed great composure to find the bottom right-hand corner of the net. The Toffees started the game well by dominating the early stages, however they couldn't make their pressure count and

      Sean Dyche makes no changes, sticking with the starting eleven who drew to Huddersfield last weekend.
    • 0'
      Ronald Koeman has made three changes to the side that beat Bournemouth last weekend. Mason Holgate, Davy Klaassen and Wayne Rooney move to the bench for Michael Keane, Oumar Niasse and Nikola Vlasic. The Croatian has been rewarded with a starting spot after scoring in the Europa League on Thursday.

    • 0'
      Both teams recorded one victory each in the two matches between these sides last season. Burnley were 2-1 victors at Turf Moor courtesy of a last-minute winner from Scott Arfield, whilst the Toffees were comfortable 3-1 winners in the reverse fixture.

      Despite having to wait until April 2017 for their first victory on the road last season, Burnley will be confident ahead of this afternoon’s clash at Goodison Park after transforming their away form at the start of this campaign. The Clarets are unbeaten in their first three away matches after drawi

      Everton looked to have turned their fortunes around after back-to-back wins, but conceding a late equaliser to Apollon Limassol in the Europa League has yet again heaped the pressure on Ronald Koeman’s side. The boos that greeted the Toffees on Thursday evening highlights the restless mood amongst t

      A victory for Everton would move them above the Clarets in the table, whilst three points for the away side would result in them achieving their best ever start to a Premier League campaign.

      Hello and welcome to our LIVE text commentary of the Premier League fixture between Everton and Burnley at Goodison Park.
    • 1'
      Jonathan Moss blows his whistle and we're underway! Everton kick off attacking from right to left.
    • 2'
      STAT: Everton have suffered just one home defeat to the Clarets since 1963, winning 10 of the 14 encounters since.
    • 3'
      Early chance for Everton, as Gylfi Sigurdsson sets up Oumar Niasse on the edge of Burnley's penalty area. The striker fizzed a shot towards the goal, which was comfortably dealt with by Nick Pope. Good start from the hosts.
    • 6'
      GOOD SAVE! A mistake from Ben Mee on the halfway line gifts possession to Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The striker broke down the right-hand touchline, before finding Vlasic who set up Sigurdsson. The Icelandic international picked up the ball and shot, but it was tame and met by Pope in Burnley's goal.
    • 9'
      Another lucky escape for Burnley! A ball is launched up into the air of Burnley's penalty area, which was not dealt with by any of the Clarets' players. Nick Pope charged off his line to deal with the bouncing ball, but was beaten to it by Niasse who flicked it over his head, however it eventually l
    • 12'
      STAT: The Clarets have only kept one clean sheet in the last 32 fixtures between the clubs.
    • 14'
      It has been a positive start from the Toffees, who have had the away side pinned in their own half since kick off. Burnley are defending well, however, ensuring they have two tight banks of four protecting their penalty area and goal.
    • 17'
      CHANCE! A burst from Niasse down the left-hand touchline causes Matthew Lowton all sorts of problems. The striker beats his man and finds himself on the edge of the Burnley penalty area, where he eventually feeds the ball to Sigurdsson. The midfielder looked set to score, however took too long over
    • 20'
      Scott Arfield does well to stop Nikola Vlasic down the right-hand touchline, as he wins possession back before breaking up the wing for his side. The midfielder beats two Everton players, before playing a one-two with Chris Wood and breaking into the Everton half. His final ball is poor though, gift

      Assist Stephen Ward - The defender showed great composure to find his fellow countryman, who finished superbly to give Sean Dyche's men the lead.
    • 21'
      GOOOAAALLL!!! EVERTON 0-1 BURNLEY – JEFF HENDRICK SCORES - After being pinned inside their half for most of this contest, Burnley score from their first meaningful attacking spell of the game. Arfield picked the ball up just outside of Everton's box, before playing a delightful through pass to Steph
    • 25'
      Who saw that coming? Goodison Park has been silenced, with the jubilant away fans producing the only noise inside the ground.
    • 28'
      Burnley have executed their gameplan perfectly after going a goal up. Sean Dyche's side are now sitting back on their lead, ensuring they're not giving Everton any attacking opportunities, before counter-attacking quickly up the pitch when an opportunity arises.
    • 31'
      The home side are trying their hardest to get back into this match, with the aforementioned Niasse still causing Burnley defensive problems. The striker received the ball and held it up, before laying it off to Idrissa Gueye who blasted his shot past the right-hand post.
    • 33'
      There's still a long way to go, but if Burnley hold on for victory they would have remarkably already beaten their away points total from last season, whilst achieving their best ever start to a Premier League season.
    • 35'
      You can hardly hear a pindrop inside Goodison Park, as the Everton supporters are struggling to believe what they're witnessing after the mass investment in their squad over the summer.
    • 38'
      CHANCE! Burnley almost score again after winning an attacking free kick on the halfway line. Goalkeeper Nick Pope takes it, launching a high delivery into Everton's penalty area which is met by Ben Mee. The captain connects with the ball well, but heads it straight into the gloves of Jordan Pickford

    • 40'
      Yellow card - Steven Defour is booked for his protests over a throw in that didn't go the way of Burnley.

      YC Scott Arfield
    • 42'
      Yellow card - Scott Arfield is booked for diving when it looked like Ashley Wiliams brought him down in the penalty area. The Welshman put himself into all sorts of trouble after he fired his clearance straight into Hendrick, resulting in the ball deflecting into the path of Arfield. The midfielder

      The fourth official indicates that there will be one minute of added time.
    • 46'
      The second half is underway, with Burnley kicking off.
    • 48'
      The second half has started in similar fashion to the first, with Everton dominating possession whilst Burnley sit deep defensively. The home side need to increase the tempo if they want to create attacking opportunities, as it has been far too easy for Sean Dyche's side so far this afternoon.
    • 49'
      YC Dominic Calvert-Lewin
    • 49'
      Yellow card - Dominic Calvert-Lewin is booked for a mistimed sliding challenge down the left-hand touchline.
    • 51'
      Everton continue to press forward, with Cuco Martina winning a corner high up the pitch. The initial delivery by Sigurdsson is headed away by Chris Wood, resulting in the ball landing at the feet of Gueye. The midfielder controlled the ball and lined up his shot, but fired over the bar to the deligh
    • 54'
      Burnley have grown in confidence after scoring the opening goal, as they keep possession for a sustained period of time, with all players receiving touches of the ball. Although they are more defensively focused as they have the lead, Sean Dyche's side might need another goal to secure victory in th
    • 57'
      Everton are really struggling to break the Clarets down, which is increasing the tension and restlessness amongst the home supporters. Koeman will surely have to turn to his bench sooner rather than later, as his side have failed to create a meaningful chance in the second half.
    • 58'
      YC Leighton Baines
    • 58'
      Yellow card - Leighton Baines is penalised for a bad challenge.
    • 61'
      A hopeful ball into the box from Michael Keane results in his side winning a corner after a hefty deflection off a Burnley player. The ball is whipped in and headed away well, as the home side continue to struggle to create a good chance this half.
    • 63'
      SI Wayne Rooney SO Morgan Schneiderlin
    • 63'
      Substitution - Morgan Schneiderlin departs as Ronald Koeman makes an attacking change with Wayne Rooney replacing the Frenchman.
    • 66'
      Everton seem to have changed formation into a 4-3-3 with Rooney, Sigurdsson and Gueye playing as a midfield three, whilst Vlasic, Calvert-Lewin and Niasse play up front.
    • 67'
      CHANCE! Burnley work the ball up the pitch superbly, with it eventually finding Robbie Brady down the left-hand touchline. The winger drove into the area before directing a powerful cross into the box, which was parried away to safety by Jordan Pickford.
    • 69'
      SI Tom Davies SO Nikola Vlasic
    • 69'
      Substitution - Nikola Vlasic departs for Tom Davies. The Englishman was the super-sub against Bournemouth last weekend, will he make a similar impact in the remainder of this contest?
    • 72'
      Burnley are pressing for a second goal here, after winning a free kick just outside of Everton's 18-yard box. The initial delivery is dealt with, however Arfield won yet another free kick after controlling the ball and being cynically hauled down by Niasse on the right-hand touchline. Brady whipped
    • 75'
      GREAT GOALKEEPING! Everton win a corner, but it is eventually cleared by Burnley after two attempts. The ball landed at the feet of Rooney, however, who curled a ball into the far post which looked destined for Ashley Williams' head, but Nick Pope superbly pushed it away from danger as the Welshman
    • 78'
      Niasse and Sigurdsson do well by playing intricate passes to each other around Burnley's penalty area, however the ball is eventually retrieved and cleared by Ben Mee. The home side are still yet to create a clear-cut chance this half, maininly due to Sean Dyche's sides brilliant defensive display.
    • 80'
      Ten minutes to go at Goodison Park and Everton have Burnley pinned inside their own half. They're continuing to pass the ball from left to right, stretching the pitch by making it as wide as possible, but are not getting any closer to breaking the away side down. Idrissa Gueye has his third hopeful
    • 82'
      SI Sandro Ramírez SO Oumar Niasse
    • 82'
      Substitution - Oumar Niasse departs for Sandro Ramirez. Remarkably Niasse is Everton's top scorer this season with three goals, despite playing just 59 minutes of football before the start of this match.
    • 85'
      PENALTY APPEAL! Everton continue to press for an equaliser as Sigurdsson dribbles into Burnley's box before dinking a cross to Rooney. The striker flicked the ball towards goal, but it hit Matthew Lowton's head and hand before going behind for a corner. Everton's players appealed, however the contac
    • 88'
      SI Ashley Barnes SO Jeff Hendrick
    • 88'
      Substitution - Burnley's goalscorer Jeff Hendrick departs for Ashley Barnes. The midfielders goal has put the Clarets on the brink of achieving their best ever start to a Premier League campaign.
    • 90'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be four minutes of added time.
    • 92'
      Everton throw bodies forward, but Sigurdsson's ball is unconvincing and evades everyone. Ronald Koeman will be furious at his side, who haven't shown a positive reaction since going a goal behind in this contest.
    • 93'
      GREAT BLOCK! A ball is launched into Burnley's box yet again and is met by the head of Ashley Williams. The defender made good contact with the ball, directing it towards goal, but Matthew Lowton blocked it superbly with his chest when it looked destined to hit the target. Brilliant defending from t
