Everton vs Bournemouth – Premier League: TV channel, team news, lineups & prediction

Everton head into their final day clash with Bournemouth knowing a win will keep them in the Premier League.

The Toffees have drifted into the relegation scrap again after a similar campaign in 2021/22, but the point at Wolves helped retain their two-point advantage over Leicester and matching the Foxes’ result at West Ham will be enough to avoid the drop.

Wins over Southampton and Leeds took Bournemouth up to 39 points, securing top flight safety, but three straight defeats have since followed.

Here’s what to know about one of the biggest games on the Premier League’s final day.

Sean Dyche has a meaty injury list to contend with on the final day. He’ll be without Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who provides a large part of Everton’s goal threat when fit.

He is joined on the touchlines by Seamus Coleman, Andros Townsend and Nathan Patterson, while Tom Davies, Conor Coady, Ben Godfrey and Vitalii Mykolenko all still need to be assessed for match fitness.

Everton predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Holgate, Mina, Tarkowski, Mykolenko; Garner, Gueye; Iwobi, Doucoure, McNeil; Gray.

Jefferson Lerma won Bournemouth’s player of the year but his contract runs out in the summer and this could be his last game for the Cherries.

Marcus Tavernier, Ryan Fredericks and Joe Rothwell are among Gary O’Neil’s injury worries but further checks will be made on Hamed Traore and Philip Billing.

Bournemouth predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): Neto; Smith, Senesi, Kelly, Vina; Cook, Lerma; Ouattara, Billing, Christie; Solanke.

Everton narrowly avoided relegation last season but are in a different boat this year with their safety still to be secured.

Their task is made slightly easier by facing a Bournemouth side firmly out of form. Only four teams have performed worse than the Cherries over the last six matches but the visitors will be playing with freedom at a tense Goodison Park and the Toffees may have to rely on other results to stay up.

An afternoon of great anxiety awaits on Merseyside.

Prediction: Everton 2-2 Bournemouth
