Everton was on the front foot early, with one chance nodded wide of the frame and a terrific intervention from James Tarkowski denying Oumar Niasse a 11th minute shot.

A Burnley attempt through traffic was slapped away by Everton backstop Jordan Pickford.

Gylfi Sigurdsson missed an early shot, and then flubbed an in-tight opportunity to allow a tackle.

Hendrick put a delicious cherry on a good-looking team goal. Canadian national teamer Scott Arfield slipped Stephen Ward into the right corner, and Hendrick touched around Morgan Schneiderlin to smoothly put a shot behind Pickford.

Everton brought on Wayne Rooney with less than a half hour to play, and the Toffees did look improved in attack.

Rooney’s header of a Sigurdsson cross went unknowingly off Matthew Lowton, and the Toffees had a series of corners.
