'The crowd': Sean Dyche makes claim about the atmosphere at Everton last night
Sean Dyche has claimed that Everton fans were on the verge of jeering their own team last night on Sky Sports.
Everton ultimately won 3-1 against Dyche’s Burnley side yesterday, but the game was not without its scary moments for the Goodison Park faithful.
Everton actually went behind and were slow out of the blocks against Burnley.
However, after drawing level through Michael Keane the whole mood changed.
Rafael Benitez made a tactical switch to bring more out of Everton’s attacking play and two quick-fire goals from Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray turned the game on its head.
It was a frustrating night for Dyche, and he admits that he felt that his side almost had the Goodison Park atmosphere exactly how they wanted it.
“I think the psychology of the crowd changed. The crowd were almost jeering at times, they were almost on the edge. Slow play, disappointed in that,” he said.
“They scored a goal which gave them a lift and reacted to that and it was our lack of reaction more than any tactical idea.
“We came off it and let the next six minutes go, so I’m very frustrated with that.”
Everton have now made a fast start under Benitez, which was almost imperative for the Spaniard.
His appointment was not universally welcomed by Everton supporters, but on the pitch the results have been very positive so far.
The Toffees are already in the top four spaces, and with games against Aston Villa and Norwich City next up, they may have a chance to extend their unbeaten run.
