Kurt Zouma's first Everton goal and a late strike from Dominic Calvert-Lewin eased some of the scrutiny on manager Marco Silva but Bournemouth's miserable run continued after the 2-0 defeat at Goodison Park.

At this week's Annual General Meeting Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, while backing to Silva, assessed the season as "not good enough".

Everton could also not capitalise on another low Lookman cross through the six-yard box as no-one was close enough.

Nevertheless, it was far from a comfortable finish until Calvert-Lewin made sure right at the end, but Silva will hope the victory, combined with a run of six matches of which only one is against the top six, will provide the platform for the progress Moshiri demands.

Victory at least ensured they are three points better off than at the same stage a year ago when they were on their third manager of the campaign in Sam Allardyce.

Bournemouth's response saw King drill a fierce shot into the side-netting on the counter but Everton now had the impetus and energy so lacking before with Richarlison's diving header flying wide.

Bournemouth's misery continued as their slump was extended to nine defeats in their last 12 league matches.
