sbobet8888 Burnley ended a 12-game winless streak with a 2-1 comeback victory over 10-man Everton at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Second-half goals from Ashley Barnes (56) and substitute Chris Wood (80) brought the alarming run to an end in Sean Dyche's 250th game in charge, as the Clarets reached the coveted 40-point mark, five adrift of sixth-placed Arsenal.
Cenk Tosun had headed Everton in front with his first goal for the club on 20 minutes, but Sam Allardyce's men were made to pay for a poor defensive performance, compounded by Ashley Williams' late red card, as they slipped to a fifth consecutive away defeat.
Allardyce stressed the importance of scoring first and Everton nearly delivered on 15 minutes, despite Burnley's encouraging start. Gylfi Sigurdsson squared for Theo Walcott at the end of a slaloming run, but the forward, distracted by team-mate Tom Davies, fired over.
But Allardyce's wish was soon fulfilled as Walcott's cross from the right was flicked into the path of Tosun by Seamus Coleman, and the January signing powered a header beyond Nick Pope. sbobet8888
Everton, buoyed by going in front, tried to double their lead but Pope denied Tosun a quick-fire double and Walcott from converting the Turk's cross on 28 minutes.
Burnley rallied, though, and thought they had drawn themselves level when a whipped Matt Lowton cross found Barnes on the half-hour, but a stunning point-blank save from Jordan Pickford preserved the Toffees' lead until the interval.
The Clarets, bolstered by the addition of Chris Wood, continued to lay siege to the Everton goal after the break.
Another fine Pickford save prevented Aaron Lennon from scoring against his old club on 50 minutes, moments before the England goalkeeper tipped a Ben Mee header onto the bar.
But the pressure finally told as Lowton's long ball released Barnes in behind the doing Everton defence, and the striker finally broke Pickford's resolve with a fierce, near-post drive.
Oumar Niasse blazed an acrobatic volley over eight minutes after coming off the bench before Sigurdsson fired a great chance wide two minutes later, but Burnley had the final word as Wood rose high to head Johann Berg Gudmundsson's corner home with 10 minutes remaining. sbobet8888
