Everton are back at Goodison Park for a third successive home game to start the year with Bournemouth the visitors as Marco Silva attempts to stabilise his team's teetering Premier League form.

Last weekend's defeat of Lincoln ushered Everton into the fourth round of the FA Cup but it was far from convincing so this meeting with the Cherries, the Toffees' first game with a week's break since before Christmas, has taken on greater importance than otherwise would have been the case.

Bournemouth beat Huddersfield and Brighton in December but were beaten by five of the top six over the rest of the month, conceding 17 goals and scoring just two in the process.

The Blues have won just once in the league since beating Cardiff City on the 24th of November and a run that included two draws and five defeats in that time has left them in the bottom half and Silva facing the first serious examination of his tenure.

If nothing else, the Cherries have shown themselves to be very porous at the back in recent weeks so if Everton can get their act together from an attacking point of view, there should be goals to be had.

Everton, meanwhile, have a clean bill of health, allowing Silva to carefully select his best line-up based on what he has witnessed since the derby defeat at Anfield.

Silva admitted in his pre-match press conference that his side needs to be better over the second half of the season than they were in the first and a win over Bournemouth would certainly get things moving in the right direction again ahead of three consecutive away games over the remainder of January.
