Everton beat lowly Bournemouth to snap home losing run

A resurgent Everton beat Bournemouth 3-0 in the Premier League on Saturday to snap a four-match losing run at Goodison Park and claim their first home victory of the season.

Goals from James Garner, Jack Harrison and Abdoulaye Doucoure gave Everton all three points as Sean Dyche's team moved up to 15th while winless Bournemouth are in deep trouble in the relegation zone with three points to sit 19th.

Everton were dominant from the outset and were gifted an early lead when Illia Zabarnyi slipped and James Garner pounced to fire home past Neto, before Jack Harrison made it 2-0 with a composed finish from outside the box.

The goals galvanised Everton and they could have gone into the break 3-0 up when Dominic Calvert-Lewin saw his header come off the bar before Amadou Onana shot agonisingly wide.

Boos echoed around the ground after a 2-1 defeat by Luton Town last week, but the Everton fans cheered as they led at the break for the first time this season. Abdoulaye Doucoure then started and finished a move to make it 3-0 on the hour mark.

Abdoulaye Doucoure now has three Premier League goals for the season.

"The noise around home form, pleased to have corrected that today, the fans deserve it for the backing of the team. They are always committed to the cause home and away," Dyche told the BBC.

"A dominant performance... It's a season's work. There's way more work to be done, it's a constant here," he added.

"But we're correcting things slowly but surely. The amount of times we've created chances and not won games this season, it is nice to do it today."

Bournemouth rarely threatened Jordan Pickford's goal as Everton sealed the three points to move up to 15th, while winless Bournemouth are in deep trouble in the relegation zone with three points from eight games.

"It's been a tough start for us playing a lot of the top six teams, we felt today was a big game and we wanted a performance and three points. So it's just real disappointment, to be honest," Bournemouth right back Adam Smith said.

"We were under a bit of pressure for the first 20 minutes, but it was even. Then a few individual mistakes cost us. If you make mistakes in this league, you get punished and they punished us."

Victory will be a huge boost for Everton, who make the short trip to Merseyside rivals Liverpool after the international break, while Bournemouth host Wolverhampton Wanderers.
