Everton are set to face off against Bournemouth in a Premier League clash at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees will be looking to record back to back victories after defeating Wolves 3-2 before the international break.

Eddie Howe’s side have lost their last two Premier League games against Leicester and Man City.

They also had to rely on penalties to defeat Forest Green in their League Cup Second Round clash recently so they are not in the best of form.

Everton are set to have to make do without the services of Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Jonas Lossl for the game, as reported by Sky Sports. 

The 23-year-old Gbamin has been out of action due to a thigh strain since the second game of the season.

Back-up keeper Lossl’s injury is short-term and he is due to be back in Everton action by next week.

Toffees boss Marco Silva may be tempted to hand out of favour striker Cenk Tosun a recall after he scored two goals for Turkey during a recent international fixture against Moldova.

Everton’s recent record against Bournemouth is not that promising as the Cherries have not lost against them during their previous four home Premier League games.

The Merseysiders have also managed just one clean sheet during eight Premier League games against the Cherries.

Everton attacker Richarlison heads into the game in good form as he has scored three goals during his last two games in all competitions.

Toffees fans can take heart from the fact that Silva has yet to lose against Bournemouth.
