Everton vs Bournemouth
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 13 January 2019
Kick-Off at 14:15 UK / 15:15 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Both Everton and Bournemouth will be looking to rebound from recent streak of failures when they take on each other in one of two games of Sunday’s Premier League schedule.
The hosts failed to find the back of the net in successive defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Leicester City (both 0-1). They dropped down to the bottom half of the ladder as a consequence and will desperately need a victory against fellow strugglers Bournemouth here.
The Toffees returned to winning ways last weekend when they dispatched League Two leaders Lincoln City in the third round of the FA Cup.
Marco Silva sent a pretty strong line-up to face the fourth-division opposition. Ademola Lookman and Bernard made the difference with two early goals by 14th minute of the affair as he visitors could only pull one back before the final whistle.
Everton vs Bournemouth: Head-to-head
Everton will rely on the head to head trend here as they won each of three home matches against the Cherries.
The Toffee scored 10 goals and conceded 5 in these three meetings with Bournemouth at Goodison.
All of past five H2H games saw three or more goals scored.
Teams shared spoils in a 2-2 draw when they met each other in this term of Premier League in August at Vitality.
Everton vs Bournemouth: Prediction
The Toffees should finally get the chance to boost up their attacking confidence given they will face one of the most out-of-form defensive lines in the entire league here.
The Cherries allowed three or more goals in all of past four matches in all competitions, hence the streak of three defeats and a draw in the process.
They fell down to 12th place after making a bright start to the new season. Eddie Howe’s men fell 1-3 at home to Brighton eight days ago in FA Cup.
We’ll thus back Everton to win and score at least two goals as main betting options here.
