Burnley Bow Out After Tough Week
Burnley bowed out of the EFL Cup after a tough week for the Vertu Motors-backed side that included another Premier League home defeat.
The Clarets had seen off the challenge of League 2 Salford to earn a place in round four of the League Cup but the draw would be less kind with away trip to face an Everton side led by former boss Sean Dyche.
On an emotional night on what was the first home match for Everton since the death of chairman Bill Kenwright, with former Burnley player James Tarkowski nodding in the opening goal and then played a part in setting up Amadou Onana for a second.
Ashley Young added a late third to consign Burnley to defeat, with the focus then turning to the home league tie with Crystal Palace.
Chasing a first victory of the campaign at Turf Moor, Burnley dominated possession and had more chances than the visitors but were undone by two critical errors that resulted in a 2-0 loss.
When Jordan Beyer lost the ball in a dangerous position, Jeffrey Schlupp was able to put Palace ahead and – after Jay Rodriguez had a goal chalked off for off-side – the visitors added a late second through Tyrick Mitchell.
Vincent Kompany and his team now head to London to play Arsenal this weekend.
