Burnley 1 Everton 0

Jeff Hendrick continued his resurgence with another winning goal against Everton to send the Clarets into the international break on a real high
Hendrick claimed the Clarets’ goal of the season two years ago with the decisive effort at Goodison Park.
And the in-form midfielder repeated the trick as he struck with another classy finish to propel Burnley into fourth place in the table on the back of a four-match unbeaten run and back-to-back Turf Moor wins.
These two sides had never drawn a Premier League game before in 10 previous meetings.
And after Everton defender Seamus Coleman had been sent off for a second bookable offence 11 minutes into the second half, Sean Dyche’s men made sure it would stay that way to extend their excellent start to the season.
The Toffees didn’t make it easy as they tried to halt their slide in the opposite direction.
But Hendrick proved the difference as he underlined the Clarets’ growing belief by volleying home his second big goal in four games to put Burnley back among the big boys.
As anticipated, Jack Cork missed only his second Premier League game as a Claret as a result of the fractured shoulder blade he suffered at Aston Villa.
A re-call for Johann Berg Gudmundsson meant a continuation of the 4-4-2 formation – rather than the line-up that had finished the 2-2 draw at Villa Park – as Hendrick tucked inside to fill Cork’s role.

Surprised at Everton being so physical. Hope Pieters has only a minor knock. Onwards and upwards.
Well done to all. As I am not in the loop, what is the situation regarding Brady and Defour?
Thanks for info on Defour and Brady.
