Bournemouth vs Everton
English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 24 September, 2016,
Kick-off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth.
AFC Bournemouth had a disappointing League Cup campaign as they were defeated by a determined Preston North End in a battle that lasted for over 150 minutes. Back in the English Premier League, they are struggling to find their feet and managed just 1 win from their 5 matches so far. The Cherries lost to Manchester City 4-0 in their previous league match and Everton who are on top of their form at the moment is supposed to give them a tough time on Saturday.
Everton are also knocked out of the League Cup as they lost 2-0 at home to Norwich City. But they are drawing a lot of plaudits with their attacking football in the Premier League and are unbeaten with 4 wins and a draw. Ronald Koeman and his boys can take plenty of inspiration from the fairy tale run of Leicester City last season. And with no burden of European football, they are perfectly poised to make a strong run in the current Premier League campaign.

Bournemouth vs Everton: Prediction
Everton are a much improved team this season and their results so far as no fluke. They are a hardworking and well organized side and are coming to the Vitality Stadium on the back of good morale and high confidence. They are also a team under no pressure unlike their hosts Bournemouth who are desperate to end their bad run of results.
On the basis of current form and head-to-head record, Everton are clear favourites to win this won. Bournemouth have also struggled for goals this season and as a result I will be backing my correct full-time score of a 2-0 Everton win at the odds of 11/1 (12.00).
