Everton host Bournemouth in a 3 pm kick-off on Saturday, October 7. The Toffees head into the game with just one win from seven this campaign.
However, their opponents this weekend are a Bournemouth side who are yet to win a game in 2023/24, have scored just five goals and conceded 15. Everton are 10/11 to beat the Cherries with bet365.
Everton v Bournemouth stat pack
Before hosting Bournemouth at Goodison Park, a number of statistics have emerged, which suggest the Toffees at heavy favourites for Saturday’s matchup.:
- The Merseysiders have won nine of the 12 Premier League games between Everton and Bournemouth (D2 L1), with the only away win being a 3-1 Bournemouth victory in July, 2020.
- Everton are averaging 15.4 shots per game in the Premier League this season (108 shots in 7 games), which is their highest since the 2012/13 campaign (16.7).
- Sean Dyche has won seven Premier League games against Bournemouth, his most wins against an opponent in the competition.
- After winning four of their five Premier League games at the end of April last season, Bournemouth are now winless in 11 (D3 L8). No side is currently on a longer run without a win in the competition.
Should Bournemouth indeed lose to another relegation rival this weekend, it could spell bad news for manager Andoni Iraola, who is 16/1 with Betfair to be the next Premier League manager sacked.
