Jordan Pickford column: Everton ready for Bournemouth after challenging start

Premier League team news: Everton vs Bournemouth - Rooney & Sigurdsson set for recalls, Stanislas returns for

The Senegal international's brace secured a 2-1 win for the Blues in his first league appearance for 18 months to give Ronald Koeman plenty of food for thought and overturn a one-goal deficit after Joshua King had put the visitors in front.

Calvert-Lewin has been directly involved in four of Everton's five goals in the Premier League and League Cup this term, scoring two and assisting two.

The result means that Everton end a run of three straight defeats in the league to move up to 13th in the table. Updates are sent twice a week.

Premier League sack race odds: Which manager will be next to leave? Bournemouth have just managed to get one win in their first five fixtures.

"We didn't create a lot - maybe two penalty situations - it wasn't enough", he said.

Signed for £13m four years ago from Wigan Athletic, Newcastle United were among the clubs believed to be interested in McCarthy's services before the close of the transfer window, though local reports suggested no suitor matched Everton's £25m valuation of the Scottish-born player.

He scored plenty past me in training last season but I am determined that will not be the case this weekend.

"I think the quality that they've recruited, they're a very good football team, they've got some really good footballers in their team".

With a home match against Burnley and a trip to newly promoted Brighton to follow, three wins has to be the target from these fixtures before the worldwide break interrupts the campaign once again.

Josh King scores the opener with a low shot past Jordan Pickford in Everton's goal.

Everton's two goal hero in midweek - planted a header from Leighton Baines' teasing cross just wide to produce the game's first clear cut chance before he teed up Ashley Williams to fire a deflected effort into the arms of Asmir Begovic.

Wayne Rooney could make his 400th Premier League start.

Her 20-year-old squeeze has impressed since he joined Everton in a £1.5 million deal from Sheffield United last August.

Surman is expected to come face to face with Rooney when Cherries meet Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday (3pm).

Now sitting 18th on the Premier League table, Koeman believes that their next three matches all coming at Goodison Park will provide an opportunity to generate positive momentum.

Since the start of last season, Bournemouth have lost a league-high 25 points from winning positions.

Probability of away win: 17%.
