Highlights from Everton and Burnley’s Carabao Cup fourth-round match

 

On the evening that Bill Kenwright was remembered, Everton defeated Burnley 3-0 at Goodison Park, with goals from James Tarkowski, Amadou Onana, and Ashley Young. This victory propelled Everton into the Carabao Cup quarterfinals.

After Tarkowski, a former Burnley defender, nodded in a cross from another former Clarets player, Dwight McNeil, the Toffees led 1-0 in the 13th minute. Onana then stabbed in a goal eight minutes into the second half with a cushioned header from a McNeil corner.

Young, back in the lineup following a suspension, completed Everton’s victory in stoppage time following some superb work down the left by substitute Beto. This was Sean Dyche’s team’s best run of five wins in seven games across all competitions since May 2019.

Before kickoff, there was a moment of applause in memory of Everton chairman Kenwright, who passed away at the age of 78 last month. Majority owner Farhad Moshiri was present for the first time since 2021.

Jordan Pickford was making his 250th appearance for Everton and despite Burnley’s best efforts and dominance in the possession statistics, the visitors’ hopes of reaching the League Cup’s round of eight for the first time since 2008/09 were dashed.

How Everton dismissed Burnley

With seven changes from the previous weekend’s top-flight loss to Bournemouth, Burnley, who was struggling after promotion straight back to the Premier League, was taken aback by the scoreline as they were unable to match their opponents.

 

The outcome was obvious as soon as Tarkowski sent Clarets custodian Arijanet Muric reeling with his header.

Although the centre back’s celebration was subdued against his former team, McNeil turned to face the Clarets supporters and cupped his ear. During the first half, McNeil was targeted by the travelling supporters for playing on the left wing.

The away supporters jeered the winger, but he nearly silenced them with a drive from the edge of the penalty area that went just over the bar.

Dara O’Shea, one of four players kept from the Bournemouth loss, passed straight to the excellent Dominic Calvert-Lewin and was lucky the striker’s low shot was off-target, highlighting Burnley’s failing to play out from the back against better opposition.

More appalling defending early in the second half saw another goal, with Ameen Al-Dakhil losing his bearings as the ball fell into Calvert-Lewin’s path and the attacker’s shot deflected behind. Everton were hardly put to the test.

“I want the players to understand that they can play three games a week, that they can have the mentality and take these games on. If you want to go and be really super-successful you will play a lot of football.

“I don’t think it’s excessive to ask players to play three games in a week because the support networks have never been better. Ultimately, I would like the mindset to be one of “I want to play every game.”

“It’s developing but not yet finished. Though progress is still being made, it is being made. When you start winning, people begin to have a little more faith in you. The players, in my opinion, are starting to believe more and more.

“A good marker is five out of seven. The players merit it because they put in a lot of effort on the training pitch.”

Burnley: Kompany has faith

Manager of Burnley, Vincent Kompany:

I’ve never been good at recovering from a setback emotionally. Although we made some mistakes at this point, the first half was strong. You refuse to accept it, without exception. However, you contextualise it because otherwise, it might drive you insane. Is this a poor rendition? Nope.

“It would be concerning if you didn’t trust the squad, but that isn’t the situation. We must take these actions. There is such a big difference between the Premier League and the Championship.

“It serves as inspiration to improve rather than an excuse. It’s not meant to be simple to get promoted. You’re voyaging right now. That is a component of the current situation.
