Our tipster thinks that there will be goals – at both ends – when Marco Silva’s Toffees face Eddie Howe’s Cherries at Goodison Park on Sunday
Marco Silva’s side defeated Lincoln City in the FA Cup last weekend, but the Toffees have won just one of their last eight matches in this competition.
Bournemouth, knocked out of the FA Cup by Brighton last weekend, have won just two of their last 13 fixtures so it is fair to suggest that neither side comes into this clash in fine form.
SportPesa offer 57/20 (3.85) that the match ends all square.
Silva has a fully fit squad from which to choose. Richarlison and Andre Gomes are likely to return to the Toffees’ starting line-up after being named as substitutes last weekend.
Dominic Solanke has joined Bournemouth from Liverpool, but will not be fit enough to feature until February at the earliest. England international, Callum Wilson, is expected to spearhead the Cherries’ attack on Merseyside.
A high-scoring clash?
The Cherries have conceded 15 goals in their last four fixtures and SportPesa offer enticing odds that there are goals galore at Goodison Park.
Indeed, the odds compilers go 17/10 (2.70) that there are at least four goals scored here.
Everton are an 11/5 (3.20) chance to score more than two goals, and it is worth noting that Eddie Howe’s side have leaked at least three goals in each of their last four matches.
Better value, though, may lie in backing at least three goals – and goals at both ends – at even money (2.0) with SportPesa.
The selection would have landed in five of Everton’s last seven matches, as well as in each of Bournemouth’s last three fixtures.
