Bournemouth v Everton betting tips – More misery for Cherries
After a promising start, Eddie Howe's men have returned to earth with a bump
November 27th, 2015
It all looked so promising for Bournemouth earlier in the season, although no one ever said it was going to be easy and so it has proved, the Cherries falling to 19th in the table following a winless run stretching back seven games.
Since beating Sunderland two months ago, Bournemouth have suffered five defeats and have drawn twice, leading some to suggest that manager Howe’s attacking approach is at best questionable.
Indeed, the side have a proven ability to create chances, as demonstrated when the Cherries stormed to a two-goal lead against Swansea City last weekend but threw it all away to draw 2-2 at the final whistle.
Ok so a point at Swansea is hardly a bad result but the manner in which the side threw away a decent lead was certainly cause for concern, given that they had previously done the same against Spurs and Watford in October.
This outing is the first in a line-up of tricky fixtures and following this weekend’s clash with Everton, there are fixtures against Chelsea and Manchester United on the horizon and Howe will be hoping for a point or two in these games, ahead of less ominous matches against West Brom and Crystal Palace.
This is a pretty crucial period in the season and one thing that Howe cannot afford to let happen is for the side to drop their heads, especially against an Everton side which appears to be on the up.
Indeed, the Toffees have bounced back from successive defeats to Manchester United and Arsenal with an unbeaten run of three games and are enjoying an excellent run. Ten goals scored with just one conceded in their last three outings is excellent form by anyone’s standards and should they continue performing to this level this weekend, the Cherries will certainly be having their backs to the wall. Back Everton to win at 31/20 with Coral.
A major contributor to Everton’s recent form has been Romelu Lukaku, the player having bagged seven goals in his last seven outings. We’ll be backing Lukaku to score anytime at 6/4 with Ladbrokes.
