The Premier League meeting at Goodison Park on Sunday will see home side Everton ready themselves for the visit of Bournemouth.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Everton v Bournemouth are shown below - as well as the best betting odds.
Everton, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-1 Premier League success versus Sheffield United.
In that match, Everton had 49% possession and 5 attempts at goal with 2 on target. The only player to score for Everton was Richarlison (46').
It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Everton have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that The Toffees have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 7 goals in the process. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend will end up being continued on here.
Their past results show that Everton:
- are undefeated in their last 11 league matches at home. Visiting teams have certainly not had an easy time of it here.
- have not won at home in their last 2 matches in the league.
Since being beaten in their last game against Southampton in Premier League action, Bournemouth and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, Bournemouth managed 42% possession and 11 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Southampton had 15 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. Danny Ings (41') and Che Adams (98') scored for Southampton.
The stats tell the story, and Bournemouth have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 14 goals overall. At the back, The Cherries can certainly do much better.
Going into this encounter, Bournemouth are without an away win for the past 9 matches in the league. Who knows how long it might last, too.
Head to head
Looking over their past head to head meetings going back to 04/02/2017 shows that Everton have won 3 of these & Bournemouth 2, with the tally of drawn results standing at 1.
A lot of goals were also scored during this period, 25 in total at an average of 4.17 goals per match.
Team News: Everton
Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles tendon rupture) and Cenk Tosun (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) aren’t available for Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti.
In all likelihood, The Toffees will probably kick off with a 4-4-2 formation for the game with Jordan Pickford, Lucas Digne, Jarrad Branthwaite, Michael Keane, Djibril Sidibe, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Andre Gomes, Thomas Davies, Alex Iwobi, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison.
Team News: Bournemouth
Due to a completely injury-free group ready to go, Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has zero fitness concerns to speak of before this game.
There’s a good chance that The Cherries seem most likely to play in a 4-4-2 formation, starting the game with Aaron Ramsdale, Jack Stacey, Steve Cook, Lloyd Kelly, Diego Rico Salguero, Harry Wilson, Daniel Gosling, Philip Billing, Junior Stanislas, Joshua King and Callum Wilson.
Our feeling is that Bournemouth and Everton may both struggle to make a breakthrough here.
At this stage, it appears to have the makings of a possible draw. We’re therefore tipping a very competitive game with a 0-0 scoreline after 90 minutes.
