Bournemouth v Everton Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
September 11, 2019
Vitality Stadium - Premier League
In form Everton go to Bournemouth in Premier League action this weekend, looking for a third successive win in all competitions.
Everton beat Bournemouth 2-0 at Goodison Park last season, but they drew 2-2 on the south coast, and are without an away win against the Cherries in their four seasons as a Premier League side.
Eddie Howe has little update on his dire injury situation, with Dan Gosling, David Brooks, Simon Francis, Lewis Cook, Charlie Daniels, Adam Smith, Chris Mepham, Junior Stanislas, Lloyd Kelly and Arnau Danjuma all ruled out.
Everton have no fresh injury worries ahead of this clash, with summer signings Jonas Lossl and Jean-Philippe Gbamin already out of action through injury.
Bournemouth v Everton Preview and Predictions
Bournemouth have been battling with an injury crisis since the start of the season, however Howe has still managed to string together some positive results, with a draw at home to Sheffield United and a win at Aston Villa. However since then, they have not won a Premier League game, with defeats against defending champions Manchester City and Leicester City at the end of August.
Everton struggled at the start of the season, with just one win from their first three games, at home to rock bottom Watford - either side of a draw at Crystal Palace and defeat at Aston Villa. However, Silva's side look to have turned a corner in recent weeks, with a battling EFL Cup win over League Two side Lincoln City, followed by a league win at home to Wolves.
Bournemouth desperately need some of their key players back in first team action, and despite Howe's best efforts, they will drop points until that happens - with an Everton win at 5/4. The Toffees exploded into life with three goals against Wolves last time out, but in general they have struggled for Premier League goals so far in 2019-20, with just one in their first three games.
With that in mind, a under 2.5 total goals scored in this game is available at 11/10.
Everton to win 1-0 at 9/1
Silva will want to keep confidence high within his squad, and he will be hopeful of pinching a win against the injury-hit hosts. The Portuguese boss will potentially need one of his summer signings to step up and create the attacking spark.
Alex Iwobi to score first at 11/1
Iwobi got off the mark for his new side in the EFL Cup win at Lincoln City, and netted in the home win over Wolves before the international break. He is expected to start on the left of an attacking three, alongside Richarlison and Moise Kean.
