Everton claim EPL win over Bournemouth

Ademola Lookman could be set for a start

Everton avoided a third consecutive Premier League home defeat as Kurt Zouma's header and a late goal by Dominic Calvert-Lewin earned them a flattering 2-0 victory against Bournemouth at a rainy Goodison Park on Sunday.

There were grumblings of discontent from the home fans as Everton were outplayed before the break but Marco Silva's side improved in the second half.

The result takes Everton above Wolves - who face Manchester City on Monday - and into 10th place, while Bournemouth stay 12th.

David Brooks hit the post when through one-on-one with goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and had a strong penalty appeal turned down early on, while Joshua King also had a good chance saved.

Zouma put Everton ahead with his first goal for the club when he found space in the area to head another fine cross from Digne beyond Asmir Begovic.

Ademola Lookman did well to win the ball back and then, rather than just run it into the corner, he had the awareness to lay it back into the path of Calvert-Lewin, who had only been introduced into the action by Everton manager Marco Silva in the 87th minute.

"In one moment it was a clear foul on Zouma".

Everton struggled to keep hold of the ball in the first half and they were not helped by the sloppiness of Andre Gomes and Gylfi Sigurdsson in possession.

Bournemouth have conceded 103 goals in the Premier League since the start of 2017/18; two more than any other team in that period (West Ham on 100).

It was the 24-year-old French centre-back's first goal since he scored for Stoke in a 2-2 draw with Brighton in November 2017. All three of his goals have come from headers inside the box.

This win came just days after Everton chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale set a target of winning the Premier League and playing Champions League football at the club's new stadium during the next decade.
