Everton FC Form & Team News


The Toffees are currently in midtable having suffered an inconsistent campaign this season. However, they have a good record at home against Bournemouth and are likely to claim a win on Sunday.

Manager Marco Silva's men bounced back from a league defeat to Leicester City with a hard fought 2-1 win over League Two outfit Lincoln City in the FA Cup. The Merseyside club went two goals up early in the first half through Ademola Lookman and Bernard and held on for the win despite the visitors pulling one back before the break.

Richarlison made a late substitute appearance in the FA Cup win and is set to return to the starting line up on Sunday. The Brazilian is the team's top scorer with nine goals, including four in his last six at Goodison Park and should feature in attack while Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Gomes are expected to line up in midfield.

AFC Bournemouth Form & Team News 


Bournemouth have claimed just two league wins in their last 11 matches. They have slipped into the bottom half of the table and are one place below Sunday's hosts.

Eddie Howe's men were held to a 3-3 draw at home by Watford in their previous league outing. They followed up that result with a 3-1 defeat to Brighton last weekend which knocked them out of the FA Cup.

Callum Wilson and Joshua King both missed the defeat to Brighton and should return to the team on Sunday. New signing Nathaniel Clyne is in line to make his debut after joining the club from Liverpool.

Everton vs Bournemouth Head-to-Head 


There have been just eight previous matches involving Everton and Bournemouth with the Toffees leading the head to head by four wins to two. Both teams could not be separated in the reverse fixture at the Vitality Stadium as they played out a thrilling 2-2 draw.

Everton vs Bournemouth Match Up


Everton will be banking on their home record against Bournemouth having emerged victorious the last three times the Cherries visited Goodison Park. They have quality going forward with Richarlison, Sigurdsson and Bernard and should have too much for the Cherries.

Bournemouth are also formidable in attack with the likes of Wilson, King and David Brooks. They are often let down by their shaky defence and are likely to struggle against the pace and movement in the Everton forward line.
