Video: What Lampard and Everton's players did at full-time at Turf Moor
Frank Lampard and the Everton players did not appear to go too close to the travelling fans on Wednesday night following their dramatic defeat to Burnley at Turf Moor – judging by a video posted on Twitter by Liverpool Echo journalist Adam Jones.
The Toffees are in serious, serious trouble in the battle to stay in the Premier League. Everton fell to a dramatic 3-2 loss against the Clarets. And they now just one point above the relegation zone.
The evening started poorly for Everton. They went behind after 12 minutes with Nathan Collins scoring from a corner. Once again, the defending from the visitors was extremely poor.
By half-time however, Everton had turned the game around. Both Anthony Gordon and Vitaliy Mykolenko won penalties for the Toffees. And Richarlison was able to put both opportunities past Nick Pope.
But Burnley fought back in the second-half. Jay Rodriguez equalised just before the hour-mark. And Maxwel Cornet found the back of the net in the 85th minute to seal the win.
It is a terrifying result for Everton. It has been well-documented that Frank Lampard’s side face a daunting run up until the end of the campaign.

And, with nine games remaining, they only find themselves one point above the bottom three. No team in the Premier League meanwhile, have taken fewer points on the road than Everton this season.
And it does seem that some of the Everton players may have struggled to face the fans at full-time. Jones suggested on Twitter that they gave the supporters a wide berth at full-time as they headed for the tunnel.
Of course, the away fans are right by the tunnel at Turf Moor. So they would have been in no doubt just how hurt the fans felt about the result…

Pretty shambolic, really. Those supporters don’t deserve what they’re travelling to see every week pic.twitter.com/dSndSNKP04
