49 min: Off the line from Ake! My, that was close. Gueye’s ball from the right finds Richardson at the far post, and his initial header is blocked. But he gets a second chance to drill past Begovic, and duly does ... only Ake to slide and hack the ball away from *right* on the line. Fine defending.

10.20am EST 10:20

47 min: Bernard *just* isn’t tall enough to reach a beautiful Sigurdsson cross from deep. Everton have begun this half as they finished the first.

10.18am EST 10:18

Peeeeeep! Everton kick us back off

And Gomes skies a shot over from 20 yards within seconds.

10.18am EST 10:18

In netball, England are about to open the Quad Series against New Zealand. Just before we get stuck into the second half here, a preview:

@NickAmes82 “It’s not really a high-quality game” is masterful British understatement. ?

January 13, 2019

We must try to see the best in both these teams. Lookman has been a plus for Everton, definitely their best attacking player. Brooks made Bournemouth tick for half an hour.

10.06am EST 10:06

What happened in that WSL clash between Arsenal and Chelsea? No spoilers here ... but it was a massive result for the title race, potentially, and Suzanne Wrack was there to tell you the rest:

10.01am EST 10:01

Half-time: Everton 0-0 Bournemouth

Goalless, but it’s been watchable. The first half-hour was entirely Bournemouth’s, with Brooks hitting the post and a few other half-chances falling their way. Everton belatedly found some rhythm and could have scored themselves when Keane’s header flicked the bar. All to play for!

10.00am EST 10:00

45 min: Now Sigurdsson does get a shooting chance after some bright play from Bernard, but he snatches at it from inside the ‘D’ and it goes well wide. A little more composure might have seen him work Begovic.

9.59am EST 09:59

44 min: Now a chance to really make some hay before the break, as Gosling checks Richardson 25 yards out. Sigurdsson will fancy it ... and so will Digne, who dollies a harmless one into the wall when the angle didn’t really suit him.

9.57am EST 09:57

42 min: A lovely Everton move sees Lookman, who is playing well, slip a perfectly-weighted ball through for Coleman, who has to settle for a corner. It’s cleared out to the left and Digne delivers ... onto the head of Keane, whose header grazes the bar! At the moment they won’t want the half to end, because they’ve really woken up.

9.54am EST 09:54

39 min: Ooh, that’s certainly better from the hosts. Digne lays inside for Lookman, who fizzes a *dream* of a low centre across but discovers that Everton don’t really have a centre-forward out there. Nobody is gambling and Bournemouth survive. Bernard is then booked for a late challenge.

Updated at 10.03am EST

9.52am EST 09:52

38 min: This end-to-end spell continues with a corner for Everton, who are just livening up a bit. Lerma thuds it away, unchallenged.

9.51am EST 09:51

36 min: It’s not really a high-quality game but it is certainly quite open and decently paced. Everton nod away a disappointing Fraser corner, and then Fraser gets another go but centres too close to Pickford. There’s a goal or two in this one.

9.49am EST 09:49

34 min: ... which Richarlison deals with, winning two consecutive headers. Everton then break through the same player but he can’t pick out Lookman ... but they keep attacking and Clyne defends excellently at the back post to prevent Lookman from getting a shot away from Bernard’s cross.

Updated at 9.49am EST

9.48am EST 09:48

33 min: The excellent Brooks is fouled about 35 yards out, at a slight angle on the right. It’s good for a delivery into the box, this. Fraser’s kick is flicked out by Keane for a corner ...

9.46am EST 09:46

31 min: A quieter few minutes, followed by Everton’s first vaguely scintillating moment, Lookman running away on the right and crossing for Bernard, who is awkwardly placed and can’t direct his header near goal. Will Bournemouth regret not scoring in that first half-hour?

Updated at 9.47am EST

9.43am EST 09:43

28 min: Fraser darts in to intercept another sloppy Pickford clearance and crosses for King, who heads a fairly difficult chance over. Everton have to wake up or they will lose; Bournemouth look much better.

Updated at 9.50am EST

9.42am EST 09:42

27 min: From the corner, Everton can’t fully clear and Lerma shoots against his own man before Gosling fires into the stand.

9.41am EST 09:41

26 min: Smith gets up, at length, and this potentially very dangerous set-piece can be taken. Stanislas steps up ... and forces Pickford into a handy tip round the post with a low, bouncing effort curled round the wall.

9.39am EST 09:39

24 min: Bournemouth remain the more lucid in possession and Brooks can’t quite find Fraser at the end of a patient move. Then a combination of Gueye and Gomes concedes a free-kick just outside the box – causing Smith some pain ...

9.37am EST 09:37

22 min: They are angered, though, by a late challenge by Ake on the hitherto invisible Richarlison that goes unpunished. They’re not too happy, either, when Zouma plays Pickford into trouble and forces a hurried clearance out of play.

Updated at 9.44am EST

9.36am EST 09:36

21 min: It’s fairly quiet inside Goodison. You can hear the players’ shouts quite comfortably. There’s the low hum of a crowd rather waiting for things to happen. At the moment there’s little sign of that from Everton.

9.33am EST 09:33

18 min: For the first time Everton manage some sustained pressure and possession, although nothing results bar some mild handbags between Gosling and Gomes. They’ll need to improve massively on that first 15 minutes.

9.30am EST 09:30

16 min: Everton win a corner on the left, though. Zouma charges onto Digne’s delivery but Bournemouth have enough bodies in situ to clear.

9.30am EST 09:30

14 min: Brooks hits the post! He’s played through in the inside-right position by Stanislas and onside, with just Pickford to beat. He rolls the ball across the keeper delicately ... but it strikes the inside of the far post and pings out. Bournemouth, much the better side so far, really should be ahead.

Updated at 9.43am EST

9.27am EST 09:27

12 min: Lerma skids a long one wide. Everton are yet to get going at all.

9.27am EST 09:27

11 min: It’s a good few minutes of pressure from Bournemouth and the highly involved Brooks seeks a penalty, flinging himself down as he looks to surge into the box beyond Gueye. There seemed to be a tangle of legs but Brooks also appeared to be tugging Gueye’s shirt, so it is the right decision from a well-positioned Anthony Taylor.

9.24am EST 09:24

8 min: Chance for Josh King! Coleman can only glance a right-sided delivery out to an unattended Fraser, whose first touch makes a shot impossible but can cut the ball back from the byline. It goes through a defender’s legs to King, who is tightly marshaled and can only get a half-contact as he jabs at it, allowing Pickford to smother at close range.

Updated at 9.27am EST

9.22am EST 09:22

7 min: Lookman gets himself out of a tight spot with a lovely turn inside his own half. He’s a talent alright, but Everton need to get him in the right areas today.

9.20am EST 09:20

6 min: “The comments from Moshiri are a bit of a storm in a teacup,” writes Rick Jackson. “Taken in context, they were more of a statement of the obvious. We’re a work-in-progress and most Everton fans are happy with the progress made so far. This time last year, we were miserable and frustrated, rather than just frustrated like now.”

Updated at 9.23am EST

9.19am EST 09:19

4 min: Now a glimmer for Everton, Sigurdsson’s dangerous free-kick from the right ricocheting off a couple of players and forcing Begovic to clutch down to his right side.

9.18am EST 09:18

3 min: Coleman decides its time to show Fraser he is actually there, clipping him late and causing him to wince as he walks away. He’ll be fine but that’s already a contest to keep an eye on.

9.16am EST 09:16

1 min: A bright early sortie from Bournemouth, Fraser skipping away from Coleman on the left before laying back for Stanislas. His leg is cocked but Bernard does superbly to track back and snick the ball away.

Updated at 9.17am EST

9.15am EST 09:15

Peeeeeep! It begins!

Bournemouth, in white shirts and shooting left to right, get us going.

9.15am EST 09:15

@NickAmes82 I think it’s early days Nick, for Marco at #EFC. Moshiri just stating the obvious but I’d rather he didn’t. I typed Moshiri but autocorrect preferred ‘misfiring’..

January 13, 2019

Ha – it currently works!

9.11am EST 09:11

The teams are walking out of Everton’s tight, old-school tunnel at Goodison – perhaps the league’s most old-world venue these days. Z-Cars is whistling loud and clear ... we are almost ready!

Updated at 9.22am EST

9.05am EST 09:05

Great to see Lookman get a go (although you’d wonder, too, whether Walcott might be all but done at a team with pretentions to the top 10). It’s only his sixth start in the league for Everton, but he impressed in scoring against Lincoln in the cup last weekend.

8.48am EST 08:48

And while we wait for this one, Arsenal and Chelsea are facing off in a big Women’s Super League clash. Nick Miller has it:

8.39am EST 08:39

I’m interested, Everton fans, in your view of Silva. Surely he needs more time before Moshiri starts getting trigger happy, no? Does he need to be put under such pressure at this stage? Or is a kick up the whatnots desperately required? Email/tweet away.

8.27am EST 08:27

The big takeaways from that team news are that Ademola Lookman gets a – ahem – look in for Everton, with Theo Walcott benched. For Bournemouth there’s a big blow, because Callum Wilson is injured and doesn’t make it. Liverpool loanee Nathaniel Clyne starts, though.

Hello

Is Marco Silva the second coming? Is he a TERRIBLE FRAUD? Is he, perhaps, an OK manager doing an OK job with an OK team at a club whose expectations shouldn’t be sky high just yet? I leave that all to you, but the bare fact is that he’s under pressure to deliver at the moment. His side’s intentions have been good and some of the football has been very easy on the eye; the results aren’t really coming though, as one win in their last eight Premier League games will inform you, and they are looking distinctly like Just Another Mid-Table Side among the division’s 289,845 others.

So they find themselves level on points with – but nine goals better than – Bournemouth, whose manager has indisputably done a very good job indeed. There was quite a lot of excitement earlier in the season when Eddie Howe’s side climbed to within a few places of the Champions League contenders but, with two wins from their last 12, that’s been tempered a little. They’ve probably found their place, in truth: they’re not going down and won’t finish a great deal higher. None of which is a problem for them at this point, really.

Not that they won’t be gagging to to hit form today! It should be a pleasant affair between two sides that play good, front-footed stuff. And whoever wins might just inject themselves with some much-needed momentum. Stick with us – kick-off is at 2.15pm UK time!
