Under-fire Sam Allardyce vows to put Everton right

Everton fans vented their frustration with manager Sam Allardyce during Saturday's 2-1 loss at Burnley, leaving the much-travelled boss vowing to turn the club around.

Although Everton have climbed clear of relegation trouble under Allardyce, the fans remain unhappy with the quality of football and turned on the manager in the 68th minute when he took off striker Cenk Tosun, who had put the Toffees ahead at Turf Moor.

The chants, personal in nature, were aimed directly at Allardyce, who replaced caretaker David Unsworth in December after Ronald Koeman had been sacked in October with the team in the relegation zone.

The 63-year-old said he, too, was frustrated by his team's fifth straight away loss.

Everton's disappointing day was made worse by the late sending off of skipper Ashley Williams, who lashed out at Ashley Barnes in a crowded penalty area and was handed a straight red card.
