Calvert-Lewin strikes as Burnley hold Everton

Dominic Calvert-Lewin of Everton is challenged by James Tarkowski of Burnley during the Premier League match between Burnley and Everton at Turf Moor on December 05, 2020 in Burnley, England.

Everton's patchy Premier League form continued as Carlo Ancelotti's side were held to a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor by a struggling Burnley side.

Burnley started the match fantastically, with Allan pressed off the ball just outside his own box. It broke to Robbie Brady, who drove a shot from outside the box past Jordan Pickford's outstretched hands and into the bottom corner.

As time grew on Everton began to grow into the game with Alex Iwobi particularly influential and finding space on the right. Dominic Calvert-Lewin got onto the end of one of his crosses and forced a fine save from Nick Pope.

On the stroke of half-time they had their equaliser. Allan dispossessed Josh Brownhill and fed Richarlison, whose left-footed pass found Calvert-Lewin and the striker's excellent goalscoring form continued.

After the break both Pickford and Pope made fine saves to deny Chris Wood (twice) and James Rodriguez and neither side was able to force a winner and take home all three points.
