It’s been all too rare in recent games where Everton have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Everton have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 11 goals on the way.
Their prior results show that Everton:
- haven't won against Bournemouth in their previous 3 league games.
- are without a home win in the past 4 league games. Fans are getting restless.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Manchester United in Premier League action, Bournemouth and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Bournemouth managed 41% possession and 10 shots on goal with 4 on target. For their opponents, Manchester United got 20 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Casemiro (9') was the scorer for Manchester United.
The stats tell the story, and Bournemouth have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 11 goals in total. Defensively, Bournemouth just haven’t been too solid at all. That being said, it remains to be seen if that trend might continue on in this next match or not.

ℹ️ Team News: Everton
Vitaliy Mykolenko (Muscle Fatigue), Andros Townsend (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Seamus Coleman (Knee Injury) won’t be playing for Everton manager Sean Dyche.
We are thinking that The Toffees will possibly use the 4-1-4-1 system for the game, handing starts to Jordan Pickford, Conor Coady, Yerry Mina, James Tarkowski, Dwight McNeil, Idrissa Gana Gueye, James Garner, Amadou Onana, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Demarai Gray and Alex Iwobi.
🗞️ Team News: Bournemouth
There’s a good chance that The Cherries seem most likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 system using Mark Travers, Adam Smith, Illia Zabarnyi, Marcos Senesi, Lloyd Kelly, Philip Billing, Jefferson Lerma, David Brooks, Ryan Christie, Dango Ouattara and Dominic Solanke.
We’re inclined to think that Everton should be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
At the other end, Bournemouth won’t find it easy to score themselves although we do think it’s probable that they will be converting at least once here, too.
We’re therefore expecting to see a comfortable 3-1 victory for Everton when the full-time whistle blows.
