Two teams that are sitting smack down in the middle of the Premier League table will clash against one another, when Everton will host Bournemouth on Sunday. Everton are coming off a win in the FA Cup but have been struggling lately. Bournemouth have also been pretty bad lately and are coming off a loss in the FA Cup.
Everton (7-8-6) are coming into this match after a pretty easy 1-2 win at home against Lincoln in the FA Cup. They took an early two-goal lead and won much easier than the final score suggests. However, that was just their second win in their last nine matches in all competitions (2-5-2). Everton are now sitting at the 11th spot of the league table with 27 points, just as many as Bournemouth. They have been quite solid at home so far (5-3-3), but have won just one of their last five there (1-2-2), failing to keep a single clean sheet.
Bournemouth (8-10-3) did not have the same fate in the FA Cup, where they fell by 3-1 at home against Brighton and were eliminated. It was a pretty balanced match between the two but Bournemouth were not very lucky. They have been in really bad form lately, winning just once in their last eight (1-6-1). Bournemouth are now sitting at the 12th spot of the league table with 27 points, just one ahead of Brighton. They have not been very good one the road so far (3-7-0), where they have lost six in a row.

The two teams split the points in a 2-2 draw in Liverpool earlier in the season, and last season the two teams exchanged 1-2 home wins. Everton have the upper hand in this match-up (4-2-2) and have won all three in this venue, but failed to keep a single clean sheet. This should be a home win but we should see a lot of goals too.
