Upcoming home fixtures can change Everton's season says Koeman

Jordan Pickford comfortably held Junior Stanislas' effort at his near post from the Cherries' first proper attack, while Gylfi Sigurdsson saw a first time shot charged down at close range.

Neither side has yet managed to replicate the relative success of last campaign, but after early-season toils, recent wins suggest an upturn in form is possible for both Everton and Bournemouth.

Barry, 36, joined Tony Pulis' side just before the start of the new season and has quickly established himself as a regular starter for West Brom, who are preparing to take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Monday (25 September).

The Senegal striker proved to the hero on Saturday afternoon as his two goals ensured the Blues secured a comeback win over Bournemouth.

It's not necessary to speak any more about what happened last season.

"It is always about opportunities for players and productivity if you speak about strikers".

He added: "It is a tough place to go and Everton are probably in a false position at the moment". Maybe this win will convince Koeman to stick to four at the back for some time.

Fair play to him for working his ass off, and taking that chance when it came.

The attacker moved to Manchester United from his homeland when he was only 16. Jermain is a proven goalscorer and we will have to keep him quiet.

English and Ardern were expected to maintain fiscal prudence but will probably differ on monetary policy, trade and immigration. The National Party is unable to govern alone despite establishing a clear lead over Labour in the 2017 Election.

But King broke his duck on Tuesday, when his expert finish knocked Brighton out of the Carabao Cup.

He has not played a game since picking up a knee injury in the 3-2 Premier League defeat to Spurs last March, while his appearances for his country last October led to a war of words between Everton and Ireland team management.

Sunderland, meanwhile, name three former Everton men - Jack Rodwell, Darron Gibson and James Vaughan in their starting XI, with another - Bryan Oviedo - on the bench.

Their four Premier League meetings have seen eight goals scored in the 80th minute or later.

Everton nerves were soothed, however, when Lukaku scored on 83 and 84 minutes. Ross Barkley remains unavailable as well.

"Everyone has good and below-par performances but his record throughout his career speaks for itself".

Yorkshireman Atkinson has refereed twice in the Premier League this season and shown one red card - to Hal Robson-Kanu in West Bromwich's 1-0 win at Burnley. Last week Everton lost to Manchester United playing five at the back, and this week he has once again resorted to four.

There have been 19 goals scored in the four Premier League fixtures between Everton and AFC Bournemouth, an average of almost five per match.
