Everton vs Bournemouth

Everton returns to Goodison Park this Sunday where they will welcome Bournemouth as they go head-to-head for matchday 22 in the Premier League. Marco Silva is in need of a positive result in the league as over the last eight Premier League fixtures, Everton have secured just one win. They go up against a side in a similar spell of poor form which has seen them pick up just one win from their last seven league matches. When these sides met at the Vitality Stadium earlier this season it proved to be an exciting fixture with the Cherries clawing back a two-goal deficit to see the game end 2-2 and each side was reduced to ten men.

This is a huge game for Marco Silva and his Everton outfit as his opponents currently sit on equal points as them and the manager will not want to give up his spot. The Toffees had found themselves higher up in the table than where they currently sit in eleventh, but four losses in five games have seen them drop down. Everton arrives at Goodison Park as clear favourites to take the three points from this fixture with odds of 3/4 with SkyBet. However, if you fancy there being a repeat result of when they first met this season then SkyBet are offering odds of 12/1 for the game to end 2-2.

Despite their poor form, Everton were given a slight confidence booster after beating Lincoln City 2-1 in the FA Cup and even though Lincoln should not have posed much of a threat, it may be enough to get them back to winning ways. The Toffees have gone goalless in their last two league matches and if you fancy them to fail to find the back of the net again, then Betway is offering odds of 19/4. Summer signing, Richarlison has provided his sides main attacking threat this season, bagging nine goals over the course of the season and Bet365 have him to score anytime priced at 5/4.

Much like their upcoming opponents, Bournemouth are in need of three points as the last month has held little success for the South Coast side. The Cherries have secured just four points from seven games which have led to them dropping down into 12th place. Eddie Howe’s previous game saw them go up against Brighton in the FA Cup and another disappointing performance saw them lose 3-1. Bournemouth do arrive as heavy underdogs for this fixture, but if you fancy their chances then Bet365 are offering odds of 15/4 for them to get the job done.

The Cherries have bagged 31 goals this season which is a reasonable amount, but with 41 goals conceded they have the joint third worse defence in the league. Their last four games they have conceded a huge 15 goals which is something that can not continue for Eddie Howe. If you want to back Bournemouth to have another poor day defensively, then SkyBet has Everton to score 3+ goals priced at 21/10.
