Bournemouth v Everton: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Bournemouth's last Premier League fixture was an extraordinary contest against Luton in which the Cherries came from 3-0 down at half-time to win 4-3.

Andoni Iraola's men resume their campaign after the international break with a home game against relegation-threatened Everton, who are desperate to snap their 11-match winless streak in the top flight.

Half Time Correct Score 0-0 – 9/4

The pulse rates of Bournemouth supporters should have just about returned to normal after their side's stunning comeback against Luton last time out.

The Cherries became only the third team in Premier League history to win a match after trailing by three goals at half-time, but Saturday's game against Everton may be less dramatic.

The Toffees looked to be surging clear of the bottom three in December when they racked up four consecutive league wins to nil against Nottingham Forest, Newcastle, Chelsea and Burnley.

Since then, however, Sean Dyche's men have won only once in 15 matches in all competitions – a 1-0 FA Cup victory over Crystal Palace at Goodison Park – and a lack of attacking firepower is seriously threatening their top-flight status.

Everton's only goal in their last six away matches in all competitions was scored by centre-back Jarrad Branthwaite in last month's draw at Brighton, who equalised in injury-time despite being reduced to 10 men.

Four of the Toffees' last five games on the road were goalless at half-time and the exception was their trip to Manchester United on 9th March, when the Red Devils won 2-0 thanks to two first-half penalties.

The 0-0 half-time correct score looks a good bet on Saturday. Everton's dearth of confidence means they are unlikely to blast out of the blocks while only one of Bournemouth's last 11 league goals came in the first 45 minutes.    

Antoine Semenyo First Goalscorer – 7/1

Striker Dominic Solanke sparked Bournemouth's fightback against Luton with his 15th goal of a hugely impressive Premier League campaign.

However, resurgent winger Antoine Semenyo proved to be the Cherries' matchwinner, making it 3-3 in the 64th minute with a fine individual strike before smashing home the decisive goal in the final 10 minutes.

The Ghana international also scored in Bournemouth's recent 2-2 draw at Newcastle and the 2-0 victory at Burnley and he looks a tempting bet to break the deadlock against Everton.

Semenyo loves to cut in from the right flank and test the goalkeeper and he may well add to his goal tally on Saturday.

He has racked up 14 shots at goal in his last three Premier League matches – twice as many as top scorer Solanke has mustered during the same period.

Under 3.5 Cards in Match – 5/6

The stakes are high at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, particularly for struggling visitors Everton, but the tension may not translate into a high card count.

Under 3.5 cards has been a winning bet in 11 of referee Samuel Barrott's last 15 matches in all competitions and only six Premier League clubs have picked up fewer bookings this season than Bournemouth and Everton's 57.

Just one of the Toffees' last seven games featured four or more cards and the three bookings in this month's 3-1 home defeat to West Ham all came in second-half injury-time.

October's reverse fixture, which Everton won 3-0, produced three yellow cards – shown to Everton veteran Ashley Young, Bournemouth striker Solanke and visiting goalkeeper Neto – and a similar tally could be on the cards in Saturday's rematch.
