Irish international Jeff Hendrick’s second-half goal gave Burnley only their second home win of the season on Monday, edging Newcastle United 1-0 in their Premier League clash.

The 25-year-old’s goal lifted Burnley up to the heady heights of seventh, but may have heightened Everton’s interest in their manager Sean Dyche to fill the vacancy left by Ronald Koeman’s sacking. Dyche, who has been in charge at Turf Moor for five years, played a straight bat when asked what he would do if Everton approached him. “I just keep going on with my job,” the 46-year-old said.

Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle are ninth after the defeat. “We have to improve on everything,” said Benitez.
