Burnley's win at Everton was secured by an eye-pleasing flowing move of the highest quality. There were 24 passes by Burnley players before the ball reached Jeff Hendrick to score in the 21st minute.

It was painful viewing for Koeman, whose side has lost four of its seven matches this season. Questions are starting to swirl about the Dutchman's future after the manager was given £140 million (US$190 million) to strengthen the squad in the summer transfer window.

"It is not in my hands but I try to get the best out of the players," Koeman said. "If there is no commitment and no aggression that is maybe a reason to think about my future, but I thank the players for their commitment today."
