Kurt Zouma scored his first Blues goal, breaking the deadlock with an hour gone and substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin put paid to a late Bournemouth charge in stoppage time with a lovely finish to kill off of an often bad-tempered affair played in the wind and then torrential rain.

Everton scrapped their way to an ugly but hugely welcome victory in a game that was often befitting the terrible conditions at Goodison Park.

Then, just before the quarter hour mark, with Goodison seething that an apparent foul by King wasn't awarded to Zouma, Brooks was played in behind the Blues' back line but his shot came back off the post.

The forward's initial header came back to him off a defender and his follow-up shot was cleared off the goal line by a defender.

The delivery from the right flank was headed out by a visiting defender but Digne collected the loose ball, drove to the byline and hooked an impressive cross to the edge of the six-yard box where Zouma was on hand to head home.

Lucas Digne and Seamus Coleman returned at full-back and Michael Keane came back into the side after sitting out the FA Cup win over Bournemouth It was the Cherries, who had lost 10 of their previous 13 games, who carried the threat in the first half an hour, however, as Everton laboured to find any fluidity in their game and the crowd became increasingly vexed by referee Anthony Taylor.

Then, with Gareth Southgate watching from the stands, Pickford gave the ball away cheaply to Fraser and his cross was headed over by King.
