As sometimes happens in the wild world of football, Bournemouth and Everton clash for the second time in a matter of a few days.

In the midweek Carabao Cup clash, Bournemouth rolled out easy 4-1 winners over Frank Lampard’s men, with the Everton manager making 11 changes to his side from last weekend.

That was Bournemouth’s first win in six in all competitions, and it could give them the lift they need to revive their season. They have done well under Gary O’Neil’s interim management, but have slipped of late.

There is still no fresh news of when the takeover of the club will be complete, or when a permanent manager will be installed, but the club could face the possibility of being in the relegation zone before long.

Everton are not too far behind right now, with the Toffees claiming just one win from their last seven in the league, and now eight in all competitions.

Lampard came under fire for making so many changes in that Carabao Cup game, but he’ll have a full-strength team out here for sure.

AFC Bournemouth Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Are scoring plenty despite poor league results

     Won their last three meetings against Everton, including this week

Reasons to be fearful:

     Continue to concede masses of goals

     Everton will be much tougher in this game

Their midweek cup win will have come as a huge boost to Bournemouth and Gary O’Neil’s players, not least because it strengthens his chances of becoming the club’s new permanent manager.

The longer this situation surrounding the club’s ownership continues, the more it is having an effect on the players and the interim manager. It makes sense – no one wants to feel uncertain about their future.

For Bournemouth right now, it is about picking up as many points as they can in the league before they break for the World Cup. In a month’s time, who knows what the situation will be with the club?

O’Neil also made several changes to his team in midweek, and it’s likely that Solanke, Tavenier, Billing and co. will come back into the starting line-up here.

Star Man – Dominic Solanke

He must have thought his goal against Leeds had killed the game off, only to watch his side concede three goals in the final 30 minutes to lose the game. 

Everton FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Will be back at full strength for this game

     Should be out for revenge following midweek defeat

Reasons to be fearful

     May miss Calvert-Lewin through injury again

     Poor record recently against Bournemouth

With Everton not exactly pulling up trees in the Premier League right now, many thought that Frank Lampard would name a strong side in their midweek cup game in order to boost some confidence.

Often, you’ll see a side struggling in their respective league having a good cup run, which can bring optimism and joy to the supporters. 

Instead, Lampard elected to make heavy changes to his usual line-up and paid the price for doing so. It was not a good look to Everton’s fanbase, to go out of a cup competition so easily.

Now, they must turn their attention to winning the three remaining points available before the World Cup break. 

You feel that a defeat here could lead to some serious questions around Lampard’s future over the next month or so, a period where clubs will naturally take time to reflect during a break in play.

Unfortunately for Lampard, it looks as though Dominic Calvert-Lewin could be out once again with a hamstring injury.

Star Man – Demarai Gray

The pacey winger has been one of Everton’s better players this season, and with Calvert-Lewin out yet again, he will shoulder some of the goalscoring responsibility. He found the back of the net in midweek.

     Will be a tighter game than in midweek

     Everton should edge possession

     First goal will be vital

When two teams play each other twice in the space of a few days, rarely do you see both matches won by the same team.

Due to player rotation, tactical tweaks and momentum swings from one game to the next, you often end up seeing a different result entirely.

That will be Everton’s hope, at least, having found themselves on the end of a 4-1 thrashing in midweek. 

They will bring back their first XI and are perhaps slight favourites here.
