Samuel Eto'o was the star of the show as Everton defeated Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor.

Eto'o scored twice and played a part in the second goal as the Toffees recorded back-to-back league wins.

The Cameroonian opened the scoring inside four minutes with a bullet header and helped play in Romelu Lukaku for the second goal after Danny Ings had levelled.

His third, with five minutes to go, was a fabulous curling effort from outside the box.

You wouldn’t have thought Everton had made five changes based on the fluid passing football which lead to the first goal.

A sweeping counter-attack involving several players saw the ball presented to Leighton Baines heading towards the byline and his cross was perfect for Eto’o to power home with his head.

Ex-Everton man Lukas Jutkiewicz screwed the home side’s first chance wide 10 minutes in and then Romelu Lukaku’s low, drilled shot was a yard or so wide after Michael Kightly had squandered possession cheaply in the middle of the pitch.


But then Everton’s record signing got his side into trouble for Burnley’s equaliser.

His slack pass presented the ball straight to the Jutkiewicz whose slide-rule pass allowed strike partner Ings to race through and calmly round Tim Howard to level the scores 20 minutes in.

Burnley were buoyant as Everton temporarily lost their way and Scott Arfield volleyed just wide seconds later.

Everton needed to regain control of proceedings and as soon as they did, they retook the lead as Lukaku made amends for his earlier error.

Steven Naismith and Eto’o were involved at the sharp end after some patient passing in the build-up and the Belgian was able to finish at the second attempt.

The Clarets swiftly set about finding another equaliser and Jutkiewicz shrugged off the attention of Antolin Alcaraz to fire wide.

The Blues were close to a third before the break when Naismith’s looped header flicked up off the bar and into the keeper’s hands after great work from Eto’o and Leon Osman down the left.

Jutkiewicz’s tame header and Naismith’s blocked shot were the best the start of the second half had to offer.

Coleman raided down the right to set up McCarthy on 58 minutes but again, the effort was blocked.

Baines’ teasing free-kick was intended as a cross on 63 minutes but such was the bend he achieved, it almost snuck in and required Tom Heaton to bundle it behind.

Then Ross Barkley was on for Lukaku as Roberto Martinez made his first change.

Barkley slotted into central midfield with Eto’o now the lone striker.

Burnley’s own sub Ashley Barnes was lucky to escape with just a yellow card when he went in high on Gareth Barry with 15 minutes left.

In search of a third Everton goal, Osman sliced over after good work form Eto’o.

Burnley turned the screw by way of a flurry of crosses, but the Everton backline held firm until Eto’o brilliance made it secure.

With five minutes to go he collected the ball in the inside right channel before opening up his body and curling a magical goal home from 22 yards.

There was even time for Naismith to be denied by Heaton and Eto'o see a potential hat-trick denied by the inside of the post.
