Bournemouth 1 – 0 Everton
It looks like the honeymoon is over for Ronal Keoman as Everton were defeated by Bournemouth last week. Stanlislas’ 23rd minute strike from 25 yards sealed a 1-0 victory for the south coast side, which gave them the honour of being the first team to beat Ronald Koeman’s Everton. It was the second defeat for Everton in a week after a pretty lacklustre display in the League Cup against Norwich four day’s earlier.
I have to admit Everton were terrible in the first half. Although Romelu Lukaku’s first half header from a free kick produced a stunning save from Cherries keeper Artur Boruc. Bournemouth produced six shots on target within the first 20 minutes and Jack Wilshire produced a deflected shot that cannoned of the post.
In the second half Everton managed to organise themselves a bit better defensively and Gereth Barry was unlucky to have a long distance shot tipped over the bar
