As Burnley made a minor piece of history, Sam Allardyce was offered ample indications Everton’s supporters would like to see him consigned to their past. Sean Dyche’s side ended a 12-game run without a victory, taking three points for the first time since the heady December night when they went fourth and reaching the 40 barrier that tends to denote safety. Meanwhile, Allardyce was singled out for abuse from the travelling Evertonians when he substituted the goalscorer Cenk Tosun and branded a “fat, greedy bastard” after removing the excellent Gylfi Sigurdsson.
