Burnley v Everton - Premier League
Burnley came from behind to win their first game in nearly 3 months

It took a lot of time - almost three months - but the three points finally arrived. Having been surprise contenders for Champions League places earlier in the season, Burnley went through a very difficult phase which finally came to an end.

A superb comeback performance in the second half saw Burnley defeat Everton 2-1 at Turf Moor. This was their first win in 12 matches. Their last victory was on 12 December when they defeated Stoke City 1-0 through an 89th minute Ashley Barnes goal.

This important victory has now helped them reach the 40-point mark for the season, and now leave them in a good position to challenge for a UEFA Europa League playoff spot. Everton, however, have suffered a second straight defeat in the league and could potentially fall to 12th by the end of the day's matches.

Twitter reacted to this encounter, which involved Turkish striker Cenk Tosun score his debut Premier League goal. Here are some of the best tweets to come out of this match.
