PREDICTION
Everton are unbeaten in their last eight matches since Allardyce was named as their manager and their confidence is notably flying. Bournemouth on the other hand are desperate for a win, but are lacking belief despite showing plenty of fight. The visitors should take at least a point back to Merseyside.

MEMORABLE MEETING
Bournemouth and Everton played out a six-goal thriller at the Vitality Stadium back in November 2015. Bournemouth were two nil down at one point and looked like they had levelled proceedings and earned a point. It then looked as if Ross Barkley would break the Cherries’ hearts with an injury time goal which many felt was enough to win the game. But there was still time for another twist in the tale as Junior Stanislas’ 97th minute leveller meant it was honours even on the South Coast.
