It's fair to say Everton will have been relatively pleased with a point from their last encounter with Wolverhampton Wanderers, a match that ended in a 1-1 draw. Their share of possession in that meeting was 47%, while racking up 18 shots along the way, 4 of which were on target, in contrast to Wolverhampton Wanderers, who had 13 shots on goal with 5 on target.
When it comes to attacking power Sean Dyche will be justly satisfied with his squad's performances of late, which has seen them chalk up 9 goals in their last 6 matches. However, it hasn't all been going well, and questions remain about their defence with 11 goals lost in those 6 matches resulting in some crucial points dropped. They have only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 6 home games.
Everton will not be enjoying their recent run of poor form at Goodison Park, they've lost their last 3 league games in a row there and not had a home win in 4 games.
Having scored 3 goals in his last 6 league games for Everton, Dwight McNeil will be looking to keep his tally up with a goal in their next outing.

Failing to acquire any points in their 1-0 home defeat by Manchester United will have left the Bournemouth squad feeling a little deflated. They achieved 41% possession in that match and had 10 strikes at goal, with 4 hitting the target, up against Manchester United's tally of 20 efforts at goal, 5 of which were on target.
While they have shown an appetite for goals over the last 6 matches, clocking up 6, they have not had it all their own way at the back and have given away 11 goals and some valuable points in the process. They have scored in 4 of their last 6 away games, but they have failed to keep a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 games overall.
Losing 4 of their last 6 matches will concern them, but they have picked up some important points by winning the other 2 of these games.
Marcus Tavernier is the man of the moment at Bournemouth right now and the toast of their travelling support, having notched up 3 goals from the last 6 away outings in the league.
