Coleman: 'Resilient Pickford Proving He's England's Best'

The fixtures have been coming thick and fast again and that makes it even more frustrating to be missing games through injury.

I hate being out injured – and I’m not the best patient, which the physios here will confirm!

I just want to be back out playing as soon as possible.

At the time of writing I don’t know whether I will be available for selection for this evening but I’ll certainly be here at Goodison, regardless of whether I am in the squad.

I always think it’s important for all squad members to be at the home games whenever they can be.  It’s good for team spirit and it shows a unity, which is what we have here at Everton.

Also, the fact there are no supporters inside the grounds means that any comments we want to shout at the guys on the pitch will be heard!

We were disappointed to come away from Chelsea with nothing to show for our efforts on Monday. We were under no illusions ahead of the game because they are in a good run of form and Thomas Tuchel has got them very well organised.

We just couldn’t get a foothold in the game and when Chelsea get control, they are difficult to knock off their stride.

If we’re being honest, the 2-0 loss could have been a wee bit worse, but Jordan was in terrific form.

He knows that part and parcel of being a goalkeeper is that your every mistake will be analysed in depth and used against you, but Jordan has broad shoulders and his mental strength and determination are strong traits of his.

He’s had nothing to prove to us, but it’s been nice for the rest to be reminded just how good he is and why he is England’s number one.

It was a shame to lose our excellent unbeaten run away from home at Stamford Bridge, but we can still reflect on some terrific results on the road.

What we must do now is bring that consistency back to Goodison Park. Our home form hasn’t been good enough, it’s as simple as that.

Games between ourselves and Burnley tend to be tight, often with no more than a goal between us either way, and I expect this evening to be similar.

We have to be ready for the challenge and ready to play with a high tempo from the off.

Finally, as always, I hope you enjoy the game from the safety and comfort of your own homes this evening.

Things appear to be edging back to normal, but we must all still obey the rules and regulations to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.

All the best,
