Bournemouth 3-1 Everton: Cherries beat Toffees

Bournemouth moved into the top half and denied Everton the opportunity to move into third place with a 3-1 win at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

The hosts had taken the lead midway through the first half when Callum Wilson nodded home from close range after the Everton defence failed to pick up the striker and his teammate, Josh King, from a corner.

Marco Silva’s side finished the first half on top and grabbed an equaliser moments before the whistle when Dominic Calvert-Lewin produced a fine leap and header to score from close range. The Englishman was starting up front, ahead of summer signing Moise Kean in a surprise thrown by the manager.

However, the Toffees failed to capitalise on their momentous goal before the break as they fell behind midway through the second half when Ryan Fraser’s low free kick beat the wall, defence and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to find the far corner.

Wilson’s second goal of the game five minutes later sealed the three points for Bournemouth, who moved up into eighth position. Everton had started the day three points behind second place Manchester City and a point behind third place. Defeat on the South coast leaves the Merseyside club there after five games.
