Everton continued their woeful start to the season as they narrowly fell 1-0 to Burnley at Goodison Park, according to the Telegraph. The Toffees, however, had several opportunities to take the lead but were ineffective in front of goal throughout the encounter. It was Jeff Hendrick that scored the decisive goal of the match.
