Bournemouth v Everton tips – Cherry pickings for Toffees
An unbeaten Everton will find little to trouble them when they visit Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon
September 23rd, 2016
New Toffees boss Ronald Koeman may have rubbished any talk of his side winning this season’s Premier League title, however the fact remains that Everton have been enjoying some excellent form since the start of the season with an almost flawless campaign so far.
Just two points have been dropped in their five Premier League outings thanks to their opening-day 1-1 draw with Spurs. Since then Koeman’s men have enjoyed a winning run of six games in all competitions and we certainly don’t anticipate this coming to an end on the south coast this weekend.
The Toffees sit just two points behind league leaders Manchester City and they could conceivably go top should the Citizens lose at Swansea City, an unlikely scenario perhaps but one which could give added impetus to Everton’s performance in this match.
Either way, three points for Everton should be a mere formality, given that Bournemouth have suffered defeat in all but two of their last five Premier League outings. The Cherries were also knocked out of the EFL Cup by Championship side Preston North End at the weekend and they will struggle to cope with a Toffees outfit which are averaging two goals per match and can boast a wealth of attacking talent which includes an in-form Romelu Lukaku.
Is this a recipe for success? Indeed it is and as such we’ll be backing an Everton win with Lukaku on the scoresheet.
