Everton manager Ronald Koeman has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to his side’s defeat to Burnley at home this afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit’s poor run of form continued, as they went down 1-0 to Burnley at Goodison Park in the Premier League.

Jeff Hendrick’s goal in the 21st minute proved to be the difference between the two teams.

Everton manager Koeman has praised his players for the commitment they showed in the match.

On paper, Everton have a much better team than Burnley and they should have picked up all three points from this afternoon's match.

The Clarets, though, deservedly won the game, and Koeman now has to analyse what went wrong.

Everton were expected to push for a top-six finish in the Premier League this season, but things are looking bleak for them at the moment.

It would not be foolish to suggest that given their current performances, the Toffees could struggle to finish seventh again this season.
