Oumar Niasse also forced a save from the impressive stand-in Burnley goalkeeper, before the Clarets took the lead with an uncharacteristic 24-pass move involving nine players.

Koeman is under intense scrutiny after presiding over the Blues' fourth defeat in their opening seven Premier League games at home to Burnley.

Goals in general have not been a problem for Dyke's men this term, with the Lancashire outfit failing to score on just two occasions in all competitions, and they will likely go on the attack against a potentially Europa League-fatigued Everton.

On midfielder James McCarthy's recovery from a knee injury, Koeman added: "He needs game time first in the Under-23s to play - that's how players need to come back after a long time being injured".

On Thursday (28 September), after Everton conceded a late equaliser to draw 2-2 against Apollon Limassol in the Europa League, Koeman admitted his side were "afraid to play football" and acknowledged they would go into the global break on a very downbeat note. "But that's football and I accept that way of thinking".

"I hope to have some positive news on Saturday - we need to make a decision about Michael Keane and Phil Jagielka whether they are available for Sunday, but they are doubtful".

"Our last worldwide break was a nightmare, this one is a bit better", Wenger said. "They did everything. There are situations in our ball possession that maybe we can create more but it is not so easy against Burnley. But we'll continue because what I saw today is how to come out of this hard situation".

There were 23 passes involved in a move that started with a crossfield ball from Robbie Brady to Stephen Ward. "We showed the right attitude and commitment that we need to play with".

"No. I can't complain from my players today", Koeman said.

"I know there's a bit of noise round here about how they're playing but there are still some very good players (in the Everton squad)". We have got a lot of money and we invest some money and it is always about the difference in spending from transfers. "I have spoken recently about the flexibility and how the team can operate in different manners".
