Both Everton and Bournemouth go to this game badly in need of a win to further their ambitions of finishing in European places and will each look at it as a winnable game. In terms of confidence heading to the game though, Bournemouth will need some inspiration. They are not only on a bad run, they also got eliminated from the FA Cup in their last game, adding to their woes in the season, while Everton, playing a much weaker opponent, sailed through to the fourth round with a win over Lincoln City. The win over Lincoln was just the second in nine matches for Everton while Bournemouth go into the match winless in their last four games while it is even worse for them away from home as they have picked six straight losses. In the 11 away games they have played this season, across all competitions, Bournemouth have lost eight and they have kept just two clean sheets. In 23 league matches away from home, Bournemouth have managed just five wins. On the other hand, with five wins in 11 home matches in the Premier League, Everton have a slight advantage but the fact that they have no win in the last four may hamper their confidence. The two sides have played to high scoring matches in the recent past, with four of their last five meetings producing over 2.5 goals. They have met eight times in history and Everton have four wins and Bournemouth two.
