Jeff Hendrick’s splendid volley ensured Burnley punished 10-man Everton and further increased the pressure on beleaguered Toffees manager Marco Silva.
Everton have lost their last four league games and find themselves just one place above the relegation zone, while Burnley moved into the top five by stretching their unbeaten run to four games.
Midfielder Hendrick was the Clarets’ match-winner – thumping a first-time side-footed volley into the roof of the net at the far post following Ashley Westwood’s corner.
Up until that point it had been a scrappy contest; home goalkeeper Nick Pope tipping wide Gylfi Sigurdsson’s curling free-kick early on, while Johann Berg Gudmundsson headed straight at Jordan Pickford at the other end.
But the visitors will rue the dismissal of captain Seamus Coleman’s for yellow cards in each half, which Burnley took advantage of with Hendrick’s fine strike.
