Everton vs Bournemouth team news: eight players ruled out and seven doubtful - gallery

Everton and Bournemouth injury news ahead of the Premier League fixture at Goodison Park.

Everton head into the final day of the 2022-23 season with their fate in their own hands.

The Toffees sit just two points and one place above the Premier League relegation zone - although nerves will be running high before the clash against AFC Bournemouth at Goodison Park on Sunday (16.30 BST).

A win for Sean Dyche’s side will keep them in the top flight. Fail to defeat the Cherries and Everton will have to rely on 18th-placed Leicester City and 19th-placed Leeds United falling short against West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

The Toffees secured a miraculous 1-1 draw against Wolves last weekend courtesy of a 99th-minute Yerry Mina equaliser. And while Bournemouth have little to play for, having already secured their survival, it’ll still be a tough game for Dyche’s side. After all, Everton suffered back-to-back losses against the Cherries in November under former manager Frank Lampard.

Both sides have several injury problems heading into the game and here’s an early look at who could and could not be available.
