      James McCarthy moved his arm towards the ball from a Charlie Daniels corner, giving away a spot-kick as a result. However, the Everton midfielder was saved by Joel Robles who saved the Bournemouth full-back's penalty.
    • 0'
      It's honours even here at the Vitality Stadium as both sets of players head down the tunnel for the half-time break. Everton bossed possession for long periods of the match, but the best chance of the match undoubtedly fell to Bournemouth who missed a penalty.

      Both sets of players are stripped and raring to go as they leave the tunnel and enter onto the field here at the Vitality Stadium. We are just moments away from seeing the action start to unfold.

    • 0'

      Good afternoon and welcome to our LIVE text commentary on today's FA Cup clash between Bournemouth and Everton from the Vitality Stadium. Kick-off is at 5:15pm GMT.
    • 1'
      Everton get us under way here at the Vitality Stadium. The man in charge of the cards for today's encounter is Martin Atkinson.
    • 3'
      WASTE! Everton pass up the chance to test Federici early doors as Lukaku slips through a lovely pass towards Barkley, who scuffs a disappointing shot into the turf from inside the penalty area.
    • 5'
      Everton have forced Bournemouth to drop really deep inside their own half by dominating possession in the opening stages of this game. The Cherries are yet to get a good grip of the ball so far.
    • 7'
      Iturbe, keen to excite his new admirers after his winter move to Bournemouth, impresses as he tracks back well to thwart Oviedo in his tracks down the left-hand side. Everton are still in control of the game as things stand.
    • 9'
      Francis maruads forward down the right-hand side and curls in a cross towards King which deflects off Cleverley and flies into the path of Barry, who clears the danger for the visitors.
    • 11'
      Barry switches play from the middle out wide to Coleman, who opts against taking a touch and instead slices a wayward cross from the right out of bounds for a Bournemouth goal-kick.
    • 13'
      A good, honest challenge from MacDonald on Barry sets up a bright Bournemouth counter-attack through Iturbe, who picks up the loose ball and drills a shot wide of the target after a decent run forward.
    • 15'
      Lennon adds more pace to Everton's play as he skips down the right-hand side and drives in a low cross which Distin blocks. The spillage sits up for McCarthy who tries to test Federici from outside Bournemouth's box, but Gosling gets his body in the way brilliantly.
    • 17'
      Bournemouth are starting to keep hold of possession a lot better now after finding it difficult to prize it away from Everton's grasp for the first 10 minutes or so. Iturbe has been the hosts' most dangerous player thus far.
    • 18'
      McCarthy picks up the first caution of the game for a late challenge on Iturbe. The Bournemouth winger looks to drive forward on the counter-attack for the hosts before the Irishman clips him from the side to cancel out the attack.
    • 19'
      After initially standing off Everton when they had the ball, Bournemouth are now starting to close off spaces with a bit more chasing at the moment. Both goalkeepers still remain untested.
    • 21'
      Lukaku has been starved of service after the first 20 minutes as Everton's neat possession has been short and accurate. Getting the Belgium international more involved remains the key for Roberto Martinez's men.
    • 23'
      Barkley floats into a decent position just outside Bournemouth's box and Barry spots that, but the ex-Manchester City man fails to pick him out as curls a left-footed pass out for a Bournemouth goal-kick.
    • 25'
      Barkley undercooks a pass from the centre of the pitch towards Oviedo making tracks down the left and that allows Iturbe to again nip in with a good interception defensively.
    • 27'
      MacDonald controls possession in the middle and sets up a Bournemouth attack with a good through pass to Stanislas. The latter skips infield from the left to collect the ball and drive a shot just over Robles' crossbar from distance.
    • 29'
      CHANCE! Lukaku carves out a golden opportunity to put Everton in front as he uses his blistering pace to surge away from Elphick down the left flank. The powerful forward races through on goal but he gets matched by the quick reactions of Federici, who closes the angle and makes a good save inside h
    • 31'
      Iturbe nips an Everton counter-attack in the bud as he harries Oviedo down the right-hand side and forces the Costa RIca international to play the ball backwards, away from Bournemouth's half. Good play from him.
    • 33'
      CLOSE! Iturbe wraps a good pass into the feet of Gosling who tip-toes his way into Everton's penalty area and falls down inside the box after a tackle from Jagielka. The hosts appeal for a penalty but the replay shows that the Toffees' defender just gets a touch to the ball.
    • 35'
      Jagielka makes another good last-ditch challenge to prevent Bournemouth testing Robles from close range. Daniels rushes over to the left-hand side to take the corner for the Cherries.
    • 36'
      PENALTY TO BOURNEMOUTH! The referee points straight to the spot as Daniels' lofted corner from the left strikes the arm of McCarthy inside Everton's penalty area. It's difficult to understand what exactly the Blues' midfielder was doing.
    • 38'
      HE'S MISSED IT! Daniels smashes a hard penalty towards the right-hand side of the goal but Robles comes up trumps between the sticks as he makes the save. The Everton supporters go wild behind the net.
    • 38'
      IT'S SAVED! Robles keeps the scoreline intact as he dives low towards his left to keep out Daniels' powerfully-driven penalty and save McCarthy's blushes.
    • 40'
      Everton look to find some fortune from a corner of their own as Cleverley bends one in towards Funes Mori, who gets beaten in the air by Elphick. Good defending from the Bournemouth skipper.
    • 42'
      POOR! Barry blocks O'Kane's attempted pass towards King and that presents Everton with the opportunity to counter-attack. Barkley takes control of possession but he gets his ball towards Lukaku all wrong as he drives it straight into the arms of Federici.
    • 44'
      Coleman latches onto possession down the right-hand side and bends in a lofted cross all the way towards Oviedo, who ambitiously tries to score a header from 18-yards out but misses the target.
    • 45'
      The fourth official on the touchline indicates that a minimum of one minute is being added on here at the Vitality Stadium. Everton are in control of the ball and are pushing forward looking for a late goal before the interval.
    • 46'
      Welcome back! Bournemouth get us under way again for the second half here at the Vitality Stadium.
    • 48'
      CHANCE! The first chance of the second half falls to Everton and their marauding right-back Coleman. The Irishman races towards the near post to latch onto Cleverley's corner, heading just wide of the target from close range.
    • 50'
      The second half has been rather end-to-end so far as both sides open up. King surges forward down the right-hand side towards the byline as Oviedo hacks him down and concedes a cheap free-kick.
    • 52'
      Barkley shows excellent feet down the left flank as he shifts the ball from right to left and goads a challenge from Gosling. The Everton midfielder is a joy to watch when he gets space to move into.
    • 54'
      WIDE! Lukaku pins Distin on the edge of Bournemouth's box and rolls the ball neat back to McCarthy, who tries to make up for giving away a first-half penalty with a goal but he sends his effort wide of Federici between the sticks.
    • 55'
      G R. Barkley Assist T. Cleverley
    • 55'
      Cleverley grabs the assist for Barkley's opener here on the south coast. The former Aston Villa midfielder simply plays a short pass to the goal scorer, who does the rest thanks to a deflection off Gosling just outside the box.
    • 55'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLL!! It's 1-0 to Everton! Barkley breaks the deadlock at the Vitality Stadium as his curling effort towards goal takes a deflection off Gosling and loops over Federici into the back of the net.
    • 57'
      NO GOAL! Lukaku sends the Everton supporters into rapture as he sticks the ball past Federici but the Belgian's goal gets chalked off by the linesman's raised offside flag. The replay shows that it's very tight as the ex-Chelsea marksman gets played in by Barkley.
    • 59'
      MacDonald drives forward from midfield and wins Bournemouth a corner. Stanislas steps up and curls in a decent set play from the left towards the near post as Barkley rises highest to head away the danger.
    • 61'
      King presents Bournemouth with a good chance to test Robles as Jagielka brings him down, handing the hosts a free-kick in a good position in the process. Stanislas stands over the ball with interest at the moment.
    • 62'
      JUST WIDE! Lukaku breathes a huge sigh of relief as Stanislas' free-kick deflects off his ribs and flies just wide of the far post, with Robles rooted to his spot. Bournemouth are on the front foot at the moment.
    • 63'
      SI M. Ritchie SO T. Cleverley
    • 63'
      Eddie Howe makes his first change of the game for Bournemouth today as MacDonald, who was neat and tidy with his passing, comes off in place of Ritchie as the hosts chase an equaliser.
    • 64'
      The referee pulls both Ritchie and Coleman to the side as they tussle with each other inside the penalty area with a Bournemouth corner lurking. Everton need a spell of good possession to dampen the loud noise being created from the home supporters at the moment.
    • 66'
      Iturbe picks up a card as he brings down Barry. The Bournemouth winger dives in robustly on the veteran midfielder right in front of the referee, who dishes out a booking straight away.
    • 66'
      Barry, in typical fashion, grabs Everton by the scruff of the neck with a good run forward before curling in a decent pass towards Cleverley, who falls asleep and allows the attack to break down.
    • 68'
      King receives a yellow card from the referee just minutes after Iturbe got his name taken. Bournemouth are pressing Everton with more intensity now, hence the reason why they're conceding a few fouls.
    • 68'
      Ritchie adds good bite to Bournemouth's play as he harries down Coleman and forces Everton to send forward a long ball through Robles. Lukaku barges O'Kane to the floor and therefore concedes a cheap free-kick.
    • 70'
      BLOCK! Murray comes off the bench for Bournemouth and makes a good introduction straight away as he drives towards Everton's penalty area, before he wins his side a corner as Jagielka makes a good block.
    • 71'
      SI G. Murray SO T. Cleverley
    • 71'

    • 74'
      GOLDEN CHANCE FOR 2-0! Lennon plays a lovely one-two with McCarthy before he slips a pass through to Barkley, who curls a goal-bound shot towards the far corner which deflects off O'Kane for a corner.
    • 76'
      G R. Lukaku Assist T. Cleverley
    • 76'
      Barry registers the assist for Everton's second here at the Vitality Stadium. The midfielder somehow manages to squeeze a flick on from Oviedo's corner through to Lukaku, who smashes home a low effort from inside the penalty area.
    • 76'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLL!! It's 2-0 to Everton! The Toffees edge closer towards reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals as Oviedo's corner towards the near post gets flicked on by Barry to Lukaku, who taps home from close range unmarked.
    • 77'
      SI A. Smith SO T. Cleverley
    • 77'
      Howe makes his third and final change of the game for Bournemouth as Gosling, who went close with a header a few minutes ago, comes off in place of Smith.
    • 78'
      Bournemouth have really taken the game to Everton in the second half and while there is still plenty of time left for them to get back into this match, Lukaku's strike has winded them at the moment. The Cherries could be left to rue not making that pressure pay dividends.
    • 80'
      Everton are taking the sting out of the game at the moment with confident passing in all areas of the field. Martinez also looks set to make a couple of changes in the next few minutes, too.

    • 81'
      SI O. Niasse SO T. Cleverley
    • 81'

    • 81'
      Martinez makes his first change of the game for Everton today as Mirallas comes on in place of Barkley, who got the Blues up and running with a deflected strike.
    • 82'
      WIDE! Daniels curls in a cross from the left-hand side which Barry heads away at the near post. The ball sits up kindly for Ritchie who doesn't hold back as he smashes a wayward effort wide of the target from distance.
    • 84'
      The atmosphere inside the Vitality Stadium has died down in the last few minutes or so as Everton look to see out a win. Bournemouth are in control of the ball at the moment but are lacking the zip they had with it at the start of the half.
    • 86'
      Barry gets tight to Ritchie and brings down the Bournemouth winger as he sticks out a leg. The Scotland international curls in the resulting set play which Niasse heads away from danger.
    • 88'
      CHANCE! Stanislas picks up a loose ball down the left flank and not for the first time today, he bends in a lovely cross which King meets but heads over the crossbar as Robles rushes off his goal-line to put the Bournemouth forward off.
