Marco Silva praised a “fantastic” response from his Everton players after they hammered Burnley 5-1 at Turf Moor. The Toffees were shell-shocked to lose 6-2 to Tottenham on Sunday but managed an equally emphatic victory three days later, much to the delight of Silva.
Yerry Mina opened the scoring inside two minutes with his first goal in English football and that set the tone. Lucas Digne doubled the advantage with a fine free-kick in the 13th minute and Ben Mee’s handball allowed Gylfi Sigurdsson to make it three with only 22 minutes gone.

Digne scored his second from long range and Richarlison finished off the scoring with the final kick of the game.
Silva said: “It was a fantastic answer from our players – not just the team but the fans as well. We prepared well, we started well, because it is not easy to play here.
“When you have a bad result the best thing is to play quickly and the players have proved that. We have got a good result, an important win. “The last result was tough but we have no doubts about our personality or quality.
We had a bad afternoon but have proved not just our quality but our commitment and attitude as well.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
