Matchday 3: Bournemouth v Everton

Disclaimer: This series is examining the games days prior to matchday, there is always the possibility for injuries, coach selections, etc. They may be updated to reflect most accurate starting lineup.
AFC Bournemouth vs. Everton
Location: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth
This game is billed as a tight encounter with the most likely winner being Bournemouth. This may be a function of being the home side, but the goal prediction is between 2-3.
This Bournemouth side had a marvelous run of away form last season, and so far their form this season has been excellent. Bournemouth has been dominant on set pieces and this has been an area of weakness from Everton, so I expect Bournemouth to get at least 1 goal this way.
Everton has played better than their record suggests. After Jagielka was sent off with a red card against Wolves — they played a majority of the match down a man and still ended up with a point. I expect their form to continue in this match by making it a very competitive match. Looking for new Everton gear?
