Everton vs. Bournemouth Preview (What To Know Before Betting)
Everton vs. Bournemouth
With only one Premier League victory between them in the first seven games of the 2023-24 season, early-season strugglers Everton and Bournemouth will face each other at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Sean Dyche’s team endured a 2-1 defeat to newly-promoted Luton Town in their previous match, while the Cherries were convincingly beaten 4-0 by a formidable Arsenal side.
Everton had experienced the joy of winning before their match against Luton Town on September 30. They began by securing their first Premier League victory of the season, winning 3-1 against Brentford.
Following that, Sean Dyche’s team achieved an unexpected 2-1 win over Aston Villa in the EFL Cup’s third round.
However, the significance of those consecutive wins faded when Rob Edwards’s squad arrived at Goodison Park.
Tom Lockyer capitalized on an Ashley Young clearance to take the lead for Luton.
Carlton Morris expertly directed Alfie Doughty’s free-kick into the bottom corner, further complicating Everton’s situation.
What to remember – Everton vs. Bournemouth
There was considerable deliberation and uncertainty regarding the forecast for this crucial match at the bottom of the table. Everton has begun to display improvement in their attacking play in recent weeks, but their defensive weaknesses persist.
Bournemouth also struggles to maintain a solid defense on their travels. While securing their first Premier League win of the season might remain elusive for the Cherries, Iraola’s team could return south with a well-earned draw. However, much will depend on whether Everton can rediscover their clinical finishing form.
