Townsend screamer helps Everton to comeback win over Burnley
Everton made it two comeback victories in two home games under Rafael Benítez as they turned a war of attrition with Burnley into a highly accomplished victory at Goodison Park. Andros Townsend illuminated the night with a quite stunning goal to maintain the new manager’s impressive and unbeaten start.
Benítez’s team had come from a goal behind against Southampton on the opening day and repeated the trick following Ben Mee’s second half header. Michael Keane quickly restored parity against his former club before Townsend found the top corner from distance and fellow summer signing Demarai Gray struck yet again for his new employers. Gray received a standing ovation when substituted late on. Another followed on the final whistle for those involved in a stirring recovery.
