Everton beat Burnley 3-1 on Monday night with midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure playing a key role in their second-half fightback.

The Toffees fell behind as Ben Mee headed in a Johann Berg Gudmundsson cross.

However, Rafael Benitez’s man roared back with three goals in six minutes to secure a 3-1 victory.

Doucoure helps turn the game on its head

One of the keys to the comeback was midfielder Doucoure, who actually struggled a little in the first half.

The Frenchman, a £25million signing from Watford last summer, really took over after the break.

Doucoure found Andros Townsend for the goal to make it 2-1, though his pass for the third was much better.

Doucoure played an outstanding pass across the pitch, picking out the run of Demarai Gray for 3-1.

He even found the net himself just moments later, but the effort was ruled out for offside.

Hinchcliffe reacts to Doucoure pass

Doucoure’s pass for the Gray goal was outstanding.

Picking the ball up on the right flank, Doucoure spotted Gray bursting through the middle.

Doucoure pinged a pass right into Gray’s path, allowing him to go through and score without breaking stride.

Pundit Andy Hinchcliffe – a former Everton man himself – told Sky Sports (13/09, 9:23pm) that he thought the assist was ‘sublime’ and ‘absolutely perfect’.

“Doucoure, what a pass this is, The vision to see it and then the weight on it is absolutely perfect,” said Hinchcliffe.

“Just watch this, right across the pitch, he sees the space, he sees the run. It’s a sublime pass, it really is,” he added.
