EPL: Everton edge to hard-fought win over Bournemouth

Ademola Lookman could be set for a start

Everton's English striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin (L) celebrates scoring his team's second goal during the English Premier League football match between Everton and Bournemouth at Goodison Park in Liverpool, north west England on January 13, 2019.

It came at the end of a week when Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, while backing manager Marco Silva, told the annual general meeting that the season so far was "not good enough".

Everton have now won all six of their competitive home matches against Bournemouth, including all four in the Premier League. We had a clean sheet.

"It was difficult at the end because they were pushing hard and they tried to put the ball in our box and play the second ball so we stayed compact and I think we did really well".

An Everton setpiece was cleared by the Cherries defence before Lucas Digne kept the ball alive on the left.

The deadlock in an often frustrating match was eventually broken when, with Everton having had just one shot on target and south coast visitors Bournemouth a mere two, Zouma - on loan from Chelsea - scored his first goal for Everton in the 61st minute.

Keane and Pickford combined to deny Dan Gosling an equaliser and Calvert-Lewin - who replaced Richarlison - turned Ademola Lookman's cutback home in the 95th minute to guarantee the win.

Kurt Zouma's goal for Everton was his third in the Premier League and his first since November 2017 for Stoke City.

Bournemouth, who had 16 goal atempts, remained in 12th spot with 27 points from 22 games, nine points above the bottom three while Everton moved into 10th spot on 30 points. "We competed in a really tough game". It was a bad performance for sure, but in some moments I can have a bad performance.

"It's a hard one to take and one that is similar to our recent run".
