Ever­ton edge past strug­gling Bournemouth

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Kurt Zouma and Do­minic Calvert-Lewin net­ted sec­ond-half goals for the Tof­fees at Good­i­son Park.

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

The on-loan Chelsea de­fender’s 61st-minute header was fol­lowed by sub­sti­tute Calvert-Lewin side­foot­ing home in the sixth minute of ad­di­tional time to se­cure only the Tof­fees’ sec­ond Premier League win in nine matches, and their first home clean sheet since Novem­ber 24.

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

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

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.

Per­for­mances will have to im­prove, sig­nif­i­cantly, though to pre­vent Moshiri won­der­ing just where his £250mil­lion in­vest­ment is go­ing.
