This win came just days after Everton chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale set a target of winning the Premier League and playing Champions League football at the club's new stadium during the next decade.

The win is the Toffees' second in a row and their eighth league victory this season as they took their points to 30 in 22 league games to be placed tenth in the log. "We have to achieve the results, for us it's important to regain some form, and some confidence also and a clean sheet is also important".

Everton's Lucas Digne has had six goal involvements this season (three goals, three assists), equaling his best ever tally in a top-flight campaign (also six for Roma in 2015-16).

With 31 minutes on the clock, Everton managed to carve out an opening as Bernard got onto the end of a cross to head inches over the crossbar.

Five Everton players were booked as they racked up 17 fouls across the match, while Bournemouth gave away eight free-kicks and received no yellow cards.

His flighted cross left Nathan Ake kicking at fresh air and, with goalkeeper Asmir Begovic not coming to collect, the onrushing Zouma leapt to power in a header that delighted the home crowd.

- Zouma's goal for Everton was his third in the Premier League and his first since November 2017 for Stoke City.

Keane and Pickford combined to deny Dan Gosling an equaliser and Calvert-Lewin - who replaced Richarlison - turned Ademola Lookman's cutback home in the 95th minute to guarantee the win. "We competed in a really tough game".

"It's a hard one to take and one that is similar to our recent run".
