EVERTON BACK TO BACK

Everton secured three points for only the second consecutive time this season after a 3-1 win over Burnley on Saturday. The win was hugely helped by the two goals from Samuel Eto’o, who also came extremely close to getting hat-trick after hitting the post.

The former Chelsea man has not been a regular goalscorer, but his contribution has been immense according to Roberto Martinez. The Everton manager claims that the 33-year-old is a gift from God because he has not only been able to contribute on the pitch, but also off it as well.

This helped Everton qualify for the Europa League.
