Roberto Martinez's Everton continue to improve after a 3-1 victory over Sean Dyche's Burnley.

Everton saw off Burnley in convincing fashion as a Samuel Eto'o brace condemned the Clarets to yet another Premier League defeat this season.

The Toffees had endured a tough start to the season, but are now showing signs of improvement having beaten Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor this afternoon, just a week after hammering Aston Villa 3-0.

Summer signing Eto'o started the game today, and turned the ball home in the fourth minute to hand the Toffees an early lead from Leighton Baines' cross, but they were pegged back when Danny Ings equalised just 15 minutes later.

However, that's as good as it got for Burnley, who struggled in attack once again, but it's hard to criticise them for Everton's second goal, where Roberto Martinez's side put together a superb passing move, which ended with Romelu Lukaku turning the ball home.

Everton put the seal on their win late in the game, as Cameroon legend Eto'o turned and curled a beautiful right footed shot past Tom Heaton and into the corner, and whilst Ings had a late chance to get Burnley back in the game, it finished 3-1 in East Lancashire.

Everton now sit in ninth place after a recent resurgence, but Burnley remain in the bottom three with just four points to their name, as manager Sean Dyche remains in search of his first win as a Premier League manager.
