Team news, key stats and predictions ahead of Bournemouth vs Everton in the Premier League.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe will make a late call on Lewis Cook as the midfielder closes in on a recovery from a serious knee injury. Summer signing Lloyd Kelly is set to return to full training after an ankle problem, though this weekend could come too soon. Defender Charlie Daniels is recovering from surgery on a dislocated kneecap while Arnaut Danjuma (foot), Dan Gosling (hip), Simon Francis (knee), David Brooks (ankle) and Junior Stanislas (knee) all continue their own rehabilitation.
Everton are without Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Jonas Lossl for their trip to the Vitality Stadium. Gbamin has been out with a thigh strain since the second game of the season, while goalkeeper Lossl is expected to return to contention next week. Out-of-favour striker Cenk Tosun could be pushing for a recall after scoring two goals in Turkey's 4-0 win in Moldova on Tuesday.

- Bournemouth are unbeaten in all four of their Premier League home games against Everton (W2 D2), their joint-best unbeaten home record against a side in the competition (also four vs Leicester).
- Everton have only kept one clean sheet in their eight Premier League meetings with Bournemouth (2-0 in January 2019), though they have also only failed to score in one of those matches (0-1 in September 2016).
- Of Premier League fixtures to be played at least eight times, only Blackburn v Nottingham Forest (4) and Liverpool v Norwich (4) have a higher goals-per-game ratio than Bournemouth v Everton (3.9 - 31 goals in 8 games).
- Bournemouth have not lost three consecutive Premier League games since December 2018, when they lost four in a row.
- Richarlison has scored three goals in his last two Everton appearances in all competitions - as many as in his previous 16 games combined.
- Everton manager Marco Silva has lost against 22 of the 26 teams he's faced in the Premier League but he's yet to lose against Bournemouth (P4 W3 D1 L0).
Charlie Nicholas' prediction
We are looking at goals for both teams. In reality, Bournemouth are strong at home and I am still not convinced with Everton. Marco Silva is always two bad results away from a crisis. Normally, Everton start cold but they have started alright, although they have to win these football matches if we are to see an improvement. Callum Wilson, Josh King and Ryan Fraser will all be fresh after the international break, so I will be going for a Bournemouth win here.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
Fantasy Football tip
Ryan Fraser (£8.7m) and Callum Wilson (£9.9m) have combined for 13 goals since the start of last season, more than any duo in that time. Will either get the nod for you? Play Fantasy Football here.
