A victory for the Toffees on the final day of the 2022-23 season will see them avoid the drop. Fail to win and Everton will be hoping that 18th-placed Leicester City and 19th-placed Leeds United - both two points behind - also slip-up.
For the clash against Bournemouth, Dyche makes two changes to his starting XI, having earned a dramatic 1-1 draw at Wolves last time out.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Nathan Patterson both limped off at Molineux with respective hamstring injuries and are not fit to be involved. Calvert-Lewin is replaced by Demarai Gray while Conor Coady comes in for Patterson.
It appears that Dyche will deploy a wing-back system, with Alex Iwobi and Dwight McNeil featuring on either flank. Vitalii Mykolenko is not fit enough to make the squad, along with Ben Godfrey and Tom Davies.
- Everton: Pickford, Coady, Mina, Tarkowski, Iwobi, Onana, Gueye, Garner, McNeil, Gray, Doucoure. Subs: Begovic, Lonegan, Keane, Holgate, Welch, McAllister, Simms, Maupay.
- AFC Bournemouth: Travers, Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kelly, Billing, Lerma, Brooks, Christie, Ouattara, Solanke. Subs: Stephens, Cook, Mepham, Randolph, Stacey, Vina, Moore, Anthony, Sadi.
