The first of two Premier League matches on Sunday kicks off at 14:15 GMT, as Everton entertain Bournemouth at Goodison Park.
The Cherries had injury doubts over three of their attack-minded players coming into this fixture, though Ryan Fraser and Joshua King have recovered from injury and illness respectively to take their places in Eddie Howe’s starting XI.
Callum Wilson, however, misses out with a hamstring strain.
Bournemouth’s teamsheet showed Fraser and King being joined by Junior Stanislas in a front three, with David Brooks stationed in a more withdrawn position in central midfield.
Dan Gosling has shaken off a knock to feature, while there is an unexpected return for Adam Smith too – the full-back had been anticipated to be absent until February.
Nathaniel Clyne gets his first league start for Bournemouth at right-back.
Richarlison is back up front for the hosts this afternoon, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin dropping to the bench.
Ademola Lookman and Bernard, who both scored in the 2-1 win over Lincoln City last weekend, will provide the width on the flanks, as Theo Walcott takes his place among the Everton substitutes for the first time since Gameweek 17.
Gylfi Sigurdsson lines up in his customary “number ten” role.
Seamus Coleman is reinstated at right-back after missing the Toffees’ last league match, with Lucas Digne returning at left-back after a breather in the FA Cup.
Yerry Mina is the fall guy at centre-back as Kurt Zouma is paired with Michael Keane.
If the form book is anything to go by, then this fixture ought to have goals: Everton haven’t kept a clean sheet since Gameweek 13 (only Manchester City are on such a bad run), while Bournemouth had conceded more goals than any other Premier League side (22) in the eight Gameweeks preceding this one.
The two sides indeed shared four goals in the reverse fixture in Gameweek 3, with Walcott, Keane, King and Nathan Ake on target.
Richarlison was sent off in the very same game.
Wilson registered two assists that day and the Cherries may miss the talismanic England striker this afternoon: the third-most-owned forward in FPL has been directly involved in 17 (nine goals, eight assists) of Bournemouth’s 31 league strikes this season.
Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Gueye, Gomes, Lookman, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Richarlison.
Bournemouth XI (4-3-3): Begovic, Clyne, Ake, S. Cook, Smith, Gosling, Lerma, Brooks, Stanislas, King, Fraser.
