      FULL-TIME – EVERTON 2-1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH – A brace from substitute Oumar Niasse secures Everton’s first three points since the opening day of the season at Goodison Park. After a first half of few chances, Bournemouth scored the opening goal shortly after the break thanks to a clinical finish from Jo

      We are approaching the second half at Goodison Park, in what is a big 45 minutes for both managers after slow starts from each side so far this campaign.

      HALF-TIME - EVERTON 0-0 AFC BOURNEMOUTH - A first half to forget here at Goodison Park, as both teams are still trying to figure each other out as they search for a breakthrough. Dominic Calvert-Lewin had the best chance of the half, with his header drifting past the post, but the main talking point

      There’s just over 15 minutes to go until kick off, so let’s have a look at how the two teams line up…

      HEAD TO HEAD: Everton and Bournemouth have faced each other five times in the last two years with the Toffees winning on three occasions and the Cherries once, whilst the other contest ended as a draw.
    • 0'
      Both teams recorded one victory each in the two matches between these sides last season. However, it was the contest at Goodison Park which will be remembered as one of the best games from that campaign as a nine-goal thriller saw Everton win 6-3. Luckily for the Cherries, none of the scorers from t

      After losing their opening four Premier League matches, it has been an uplifting week after a disappointing start for Eddie Howe’s men. Bournemouth secured their first three points last Friday courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Brighton, before following it up by defeating the same opposition in the Car

      Ronald Koeman’s side are 18th in the table with four points to their name. The Toffees have already faced four of last season’s top six, however, which could be one of the reasons for their below-par start. A positive for Everton was that they secured their first victory since mid-August on Wednesda

      The two sides will be looking to kick-start their campaigns this afternoon, with both currently sat in the relegation zone after five matches of the new season.

      Hello and welcome to our LIVE text commentary of the Premier League fixture between Everton and AFC Bournemouth at Goodison Park.
    • 1'
      Referee Martin Atkinson blows his whistle and we’re underway! Bournemouth kick off attacking from right to left.
    • 2'
      STAT: Everton have met Bournemouth eight times in all competitions, winning all four home games and six matches overall.
    • 4'
      It has been a bright start from Bournemouth, who have had Everton pinned inside their own half since kick off. They are constantly looking towards Junior Stanislas and Jordon Ibe, who have both come into Eddie Howe's squad this afternoon, to cause the Toffees problems down the wings.
    • 7'
      CHANCE! Everton are growing in confidence as they push up the pitch for the first time this afternoon. The ball finds its way to Leighton Baines on the left wing, who cuts inside onto his weaker right foot and delivers an inviting ball to Calvert-Lewin. The young English striker made good contact wi
    • 10'
      There is a nervous atmosphere around Goodison Park this afternoon after Everton's lacklustre start to the season. They are raising the tempo of Ronald Koeman's side, however, as a flowing move through the centre of the pitch results in the ball falling to Gylfi Sigurdsson, whose long-range strike fl
    • 13'
      Everton win a free kick to the right-hand side of Bournemouth's penalty area, which is delivered by Wayne Rooney and headed behind for a corner. The resulting set piece is whipped in by Sigurdsson, which lands at the feet of Ashley Williams whose weak shot fell into the grasp of Asmir Begovic.
    • 15'
      YC Morgan Schneiderlin
    • 15'
      Morgan Schneiderlin is the first player in the book. The Frenchman is punished early on by the referee for a cynical challenge just outside of Bournemouth's penalty area.
    • 17'
      STAT: Bournemouth have only beaten Sunderland away from home in 2017, having drawn six and lost four of the other matches on their travels.
    • 20'
      Bournemouth are knocking the ball around the pitch in a confident manner, with Dan Gosling and Andrew Surman seeing a lot of possession. The latter has the ball pinched off of him by Klaassen, however, resulting in Everton breaking up the pitch quickly. The ball is eventually deflected up in the air
    • 23'
      Both sides are targeting the wings to create opportunities this afternoon. Everton are having more joy in that regard, with Leighton Baines causing all sorts of problems for Adam Smith down the left-hand side of the pitch.
    • 26'
      Despite Everton's pressure, Bournemouth are still posing a great threat in this contest. They patiently pass the ball around Everton's 18-yard box, looking for a gap to thread the ball through to Jermain Defoe, but the move eventually breaks down and the home side retain the ball.
    • 29'
      Calvert-Lewin has backed up his midweek brace by starting promisingly this afternoon. The forward is stretching Nathan Ake and Simon Francis by running into the channels before feeding the ball back to Rooney, who himself looks far more comfortable in a deeper position than leading the line.
    • 32'
      Other than Calvert-Lewin's early headed chance, there has not been a lot of goalmouth action here at Goodison Park. It has been an even contest with both teams exchanging and experiencing long spells of possession.
    • 35'
      Controversy here as Wayne Rooney goes down after a nasty challenge from Simon Francis. After the ball eventually went out of play, Everton's talisman rose from the pitch with blood pouring from just above his eye. The striker is furious as he claims Francis elbowed him, but the referee decides again
    • 38'
      After receiving treatment from the medical team, Rooney returns to the pitch just as furious as when he first left it!
    • 41'
      CHANCE! Idrissa Gueye wins the ball back high up the pitch on the right-hand touchline before playing a delightful through pass to Rooney in the penalty area. The striker cuts the ball back first time to Sigurdsson in the box, who slips as he goes to put the ball in the back of the net resulting in
    • 43'
      Rooney is in the wars this afternoon as his cut reopens after being bundled over by Adam Smith. Everton are down to 10 men once again whilst he receives treatment from the medical staff.
    • 45'
      The fourth official indicates that there will be one minute of additional time.
    • 46'
      Everton get us back underway through Davy Klaassen, with the home side attacking from right to left.

    • 49'
      GOOOAAALLL!!! EVERTON 0-1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH – JOSHUA KING WITH A FANTASTIC STRIKE! A flowing counter-attack results in Charlie Daniels playing the ball from the left-hand side into King. The forward drifts past two challenges, before firing a pinpoint strike from outside the penalty area into the bott
    • 49'
      Assist Charlie Daniels - The left-back fed King who went on to open the scoring.
    • 51'
      HOW HAS HE NOT SCORED? Another flowing counter-attack from the away side is almost punished as King plays the ball to Jermain Defoe who is one on one with his former Sunderland compatriot, but his shot is met by Everton's keeper to let them off the hook. What a dreadful start to the second half for

    • 55'
      SI Oumar Niasse SO Wayne Rooney
    • 55'
      Substitution - Davy Klaassen departs for Tom Davies.
    • 55'
      Substitution - Wayne Rooney leaves the pitch arguing with the official over the elbow he received in the first half, with Oumar Niasse coming on to replace him. Will the striker add to his midweek goal for the Toffees?
    • 56'
      YC Tom Davies
    • 56'
      Yellow card - Tom Davies' first action in this match was a booking for a nasty tackle.
    • 58'
      Despite Everton's supporters trying to push their team on, it's Bournemouth who look more likely to enhance their lead. Everytime Eddie Howe's side flow forward they look like causing the home side problems.
    • 61'
      Everton are really pressing Bournemouth for an equaliser now. Leighton Baines delivers a fantastic cross into the penalty area, which is met by Sigurdsson who heads the ball past the right-hand post.
    • 64'
      Sigurdsson is demanding a yellow card for Jordon Ibe, who cynically brings down the midfielder as he looks to set off on a counter-attack just outside of his defensive penalty area. The referee decides against booking the former Liverpool player, which disgusts Everton's players and supporters.
    • 67'
      The loss and failure to replace Lukaku has really impacted Everton's attacking threat so far this season, with the home side struggling to create many clear cut chances this afternoon. A hopeful cross is sent into the box by Martina and is met by Niasse, but his header comfortably falls into the glo
    • 68'
      PENALTY APPEAL! Calvert-Lewin gets the wrong side of Nathan Ake down the right-hand touchline, but is barged to the floor by the former Chelsea player. Yet again, the referee waves away the appeal in what was a fifty-fifty challenge.
    • 71'
      SO CLOSE TO AN EQUALISER! An Everton corner from the right is sent deep into the box and is flicked on into the path of Holgate, who guides the ball over Begovic before seeing it cleared off the line by Andrew Surman when it looked destined to hit the back of the net. Huge let off for the away side,
    • 75'
      SI Benik Afobe SO Jermain Defoe
    • 75'
      Substitution - Jermain Defoe departs for Benik Afobe. Will Defoe's miss shortly after the opening goal prove costly for the away side?
    • 76'
      SI Jonjoe Kenny SO Cuco Martina
    • 76'
      Substitution - Cuco Martina leaves the pitch for Jonjoe Kenny.
    • 77'
      G Oumar Niasse
    • 77'
      Assist for Tom Davies - His pass deserves credit for creating Everton's equaliser.
    • 77'
      GOOOAAALLL!!! EVERTON 1-1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH – OUMAR NIASSE WITH THE EQUALISER – Goodison Park erupts as Niasse blasts the ball past Asmir Begovic. The two substitutes combine with Tom Davies picking the ball up in a central position, before playing an inch-perfect pass to Niasse who finished confident
    • 79'
      SI Steve Cook SO Joshua King
    • 79'

    • 80'
      STAT: In the four previous Premier League meetings between the sides, eight goals have been scored in the 80th minute or later.
    • 80'
      Yellow card - Oumar Niasse is booked for a mistimed challenge.
    • 82'
      G Oumar Niasse
    • 82'
      GOOOAAALLL!!! EVERTON 2-1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH – OUMAR NIASSE SCORES HIS SECOND OF THE GAME – Ronald Koeman will be delighted as the two substitutes who combined for the first goal combine for the second. Calvert-Lewin holds the ball up and spins his man before feeding Tom Davies who was free wide left.
    • 83'
      SI Lys Mousset SO Nathan Aké
    • 83'
      Substitution - Nathan Ake is replaced by forward Lys Mousset.
    • 86'
      HOW HAS HE MISSED? The atmosphere is jubilant here at Goodison Park as the home side have positively changed the scoreline with two goals in five minutes. Calvert-Lewin deserves a goal for his performance this afternoon, and the striker is given the perfect chance to do so after a brilliant cross fr
    • 90'
      The fourth official indicates that there will be four additional minutes. Will Bournemouth score a dramatic late equaliser?
    • 92'
      Bournemouth win a free kick on the right-hand side of the box, 25-yards away from goal. Stanislas curls the delivery in which is met by Jordan Pickford, who is clattered in the process. Free kick for Everton inside their 18-yard box.
