Bournemouth vs Everton by Marcelino
Everton got a very good start to the league. They lost 3 games to the top sides but other than that they won when they should have won and are in 7th place on 20 points. They are now unbeaten in 4 and have been playing very good football!
I think this match will be a goal fest. Bournemouth have been week defensively conceding 16 goals in their last 6 matches and no clean sheet in 9. On the other hand, they have been good offensively creating many chances. In their last match, they ended a 3 match goal drought and scored 2 goal away to Swansea in the 1st half. They create many chances and in their last match away to Swansea, they had 16 shots on goal. In the previous match, they had 20 shots on goal. Before that, away to Southampton, they had 16 shots on goal. So they create many chances and are bound to get more luck and score more goals in the future. Bournemouth feel pressured into playing nice offensive football, which isn't working great in terms of points, but it is very entertaining and leads to many goals!
Everton have also been involved in some goal fests lately. They beat Aston Villa 4-0 in their last match, 1-1 vs West Ham and 6-2 win against Sunderland before that! I think they will be able to score many goals vs the week defense of Bournemouth. They only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 9 matches. They have in form players with Lukaku scoring 2 in their last match and 9 overall, 2nd top goal scorer. Barkley and Kone also got 5 goals each this season. Bournemouth are missing Wilson but they are creating many chances and managed to get some other players to score in their last match!
In 13 games, both teams had 5 games go over 3.5. Collectively in the last 5 games each, there were 5 over 3.5 goals in 10 matches and I think we get good odds on that happening again here!
