Everton Are Just One Point Above Relegation Zone After Defensive Disasterclass Against Burnley

Everton fans might want to look away now.

The Toffees are now one point above the Premier League relegation zone after suffering a bitterly disappointing 3-2 defeat to fellow strugglers Burnley on Wednesday night – and they still have to play Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester and Chelsea.

Frank Lampard's men went 1-0 down after just 12 minutes at Turf Moor, but two penalties from Richarlison meant they were 2-1 at the half-time break. But that lead didn't last long.

Burnley forward Jay Rodriguez levelled the scores with a huge goal in their fight for survival before a late Maxwell Cornet strike sealed one of their most important wins of the season. Take a look at the winning goal below:

Everton cannot afford to drop many more points in their bid to secure Premier League safety but as mentioned earlier, Frank Lampard's side face an incredibly tough run of games in the remaining weeks of the 2021/22 season.

After suffering defeat on Sunday afternoon against West Ham – and now their most recent loss to Burnley – the Toffees face an uphill battle in the coming weeks.

On Saturday they will host Ralf Rangnick's Manchester United – a game that could prove vital in their bid for survival.

Then 11 days later, Lampard's men will play Leicester City at Goodison Park before travelling to Anfield for a highly-anticipated Merseyside Derby.

Games against Chelsea [H], Leicester [A], Brentford [H] and Arsenal [A] follow, not to mention clashes vs Crystal Palace [H] and Watford [A] in the coming weeks.

Can they survive?
