It will be a battle between newly promoted Bournemouth and Everton, and here are five things to look for.
1. Can the Everton attack keep up form?
It's safe to say that the Toffees attack has found an exceptional run of from as of late and they cannot be stopped. They recently put four past Aston Villa and smashed Sunderland for six goals this month. Roberto Martinez has found the perfect attacking lineup and they are clicking on all cylinders. Expect Bournemouth to be on the defensive in this game knowing that the Toffees can score quickly and in succession.
2. Can Sylvain Distin step up against his former club?
After playing at Goodison for five years, Sylvain Distin left Everton this summer and signed with Bournemouth and this will be his first game facing his old team. He will likely be faced with the tough task of dealing with the runs of Romelu Lukaku as the Belgian will be a tough task to handle. It will be a physical matchup to watch.
3. Will Gerard Deulofeu record another assist?
Although he has a problem with diving, Gerard Deulofeu has been a man on a mission for Everton. He has been the perfect winger for Everton as his creativy and speed have resulted in goals for Everton. Despite being linked back to his home club Barcelona, the Spainard is still flying in England.
4. How will Bournemouth attack Everton?
Although they are surely expected to play this game looking for a draw, Bournemouth will have to try Everton every so often if they want to maintain at least a draw. They are among the bottom in terms of goals scored in the Premier League and Eddie Howe is still trying to find a combination of players that work offensively.
5. Is this the end for Bournemouth already?
This is a big game for the Cherries and Howe. They currently sit second to last in the Premier League and haven't recorded a point since October 3rd when they drew against Watford. If they can't get a point against Everton, they could find themselves dead last in the table. With games against Chelsea and Manchester United coming up as well, Bournemouth are in trouble.
