English winger Andros Townsend scored a long-range screamer on Monday night to help Everton seal a 3-1 comeback in the Premier League against Burnley at Goodison Park. Five minutes after setting up Michael Keane for Everton’s equaliser, Townsend received the ball just inside Burnley’s half before cutting in onto his left foot and let loose a brilliant strike that curved and dipped to beat goalkeeper Nick Popeand send fans into a frenzy. The goal came just 12 minutes after Ben Mee had nodded Burnley ahead, and things got even better for Everton a minute later as Demarai Gray made it 3-1 and ensured the three points as the Rafa Benitez-managed side went joint-top in the league.

The 30-year-old credited his mother for the goal.

“I have to give a shout-out to my mum because during the week she sent me a compilation video of all my goals,” Townsend said after the match.

“She clipped them all together and she told me I need to believe in myself again. I think you saw that with this goal here.”
