Lookman bags man-of-the match in Everton win vs. Bournemouth

Lookman bags man-of-the match in Everton win vs. Bournemouth

In the 14th minute, David Brooks broke through on goal for Bournemouth before his shot struck the inside of the post a the visitors pushed for an early goal.

Wolverhampton Wanderers could send the Toffees back into the bottom half by beating Manchester City on Monday evening (Tuesday morning AEDT), while Bournemouth have now been victorious only once in their past seven top-flight outings.

Everton were more threatening after the break as Richarlison saw a shot blocked right on the line by Nathan Ake.

Ademola Lookman did well to win the ball back and then, rather than just run it into the corner, he had the awareness to lay it back into the path of Calvert-Lewin, who had only been introduced into the action by Everton manager Marco Silva in the 87th minute.

What does it mean?

An Everton setpiece was cleared by the Cherries' defence before Lucas Digne kept the ball alive on the left. He was involved in their best moments and his assist for Zouma means he has been involved in five goals in his past seven Premier League games. The Iceland global hacked at a great opening before half-time and Gomes also wasted an excellent opportunity early in the second half, blazing over from 15 yards.

Everton move up to 10th in the table after recovering from a poor opening 30 minutes to win only their second league game since the start of December. The south-coast club have shipped 15 goals in four League and cup matches. I'm obviously really glad to score my first goal for Everton and that give us the win so I'm very happy with that. All three of his goals have come from headers inside the box.

After Kurt Zouma opened the scoring for Marco Silva's men in the 61st minute, Dominic Calvert-Lewin then sealed the victory in stoppage time with Lookman providing the assist to end any hope of a comeback from Eddie Howe's side.
