Speaking after the game, Clarets boss Sean Dyche discussed the impact of substitutes Maxwel Corner and Matej Vydra on the game, and said: “Maxwel needs time and Matej has come back late (after Euro 2020) and is trying to get to that real fitness, so I was pleased with those two.

“Jay (Rodriguez) had a little spell at the end to try and change the feel. We weren't a million miles away in the second half at the beginning, but I just felt it needed a little bit more

“I was pleased with the way they reacted and the way they have taken it on in the second half, and more to come from those two I feel.”

Discussing Cornet in detail, Dyche revealed: “He's good and seems to be getting along with the group. I didn't think the timing was right (to play him) at Everton but I felt it was right today.

“He did very well with the ball, he has to learn the little nuances of the Premier League and transition. But we brought him here because we feel he is a good player and I am sure he will continue to adapt to the challenge of the Premier League.”

Burnley are back in action tomorrow evening, when they host League Two side Rochdale at Turf Moor.
