Everton v Bournemouth Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 3pm UK Time, Saturday 7th October 2023

 

Having managed just a single Premier League between them ahead of the eighth round of fixtures, Everton and AFC Bournemouth go head-to-head on Merseyside on Saturday afternoon.

Everton have managed just a single win whilst in Premier League action this season and they went down 1-2 at home to fellow strugglers Luton Town in their last outing on Saturday afternoon, the Hatters finding themselves two goals ahead within the opening half hour. Prior to this disappointing result, the Toffees had been in decent fettle thanks to a 3-1 win away to Brentford in the Premier League and 2-1 win away to Aston Villa (League Cup) in their previous two outings. As things stand, Everton sit in 16th position in the Premier League table, level on points with Luton Town and above the bottom three on goal difference alone.

The Toffees have failed to keep a clean sheet in any competition since the final outing of the 2022/23 campaign but at the opposite end they have failed to find the back of the net in just one game during this time. They enjoyed a pivotal win over AFC Bournemouth five months ago and the fans will be confident of another three points coming their way on Saturday afternoon.

Bournemouth were given a hiding by Arsenal in their last outing, two penalties contributing to the 4-0 rout on home soil. The Cherries are one of just two Premier League sides – the other being bottom team Sheffield United – still searching for their first league win of the season and they have gone eleven games without a win in the league with at least two goals conceded in each of their last three away games whilst on Premier League duty.

Given that Bournemouth have been struggling to keep the back door shut whilst on their travels, we envisage them conceding on Merseyside this weekend. Nevertheless, the home side have been showing signs of life up front in the past few weeks and while their defensive frailties are still apparent, we expect them to force the visitors into sharing the spoils in this one.
