What took place in that WSL conflict between Arsenal and Chelsea? No spoilers right here … nevertheless it was once an enormous consequence for the identify race, doubtlessly, and Suzanne Wrack was once there to let you know the remaining:
Half-time: Everton zero-zero Bournemouth
Goalless, nevertheless it’s been watchable. The first part-hour was once solely Bournemouth’s, with Brooks hitting the publish and a couple of different part-probabilities falling their manner. Everton belatedly discovered some rhythm and can have scored themselves when Keane’s header flicked the bar. All to play for!
45 min: Now Sigurdsson does get a capturing probability after some shiny play from Bernard, however he snatches at it from within the ‘D’ and it is going neatly large. A bit extra composure would possibly have observed him paintings Begovic.
44 min: Now a possibility to truly make some hay earlier than the spoil, as Gosling tests Richardson 25 yards out. Sigurdsson will fancy it … and so will Digne, who dollies a risk free one into the wall when the attitude didn’t truly swimsuit him.
42 min: A good looking Everton transfer sees Lookman, who’s enjoying neatly, slip a wonderfully-weighted ball via for Coleman, who has to accept a nook. It’s cleared out to the left and Digne delivers … onto the pinnacle of Keane, whose header grazes the bar! At the instant they gained’t need the part to finish, as a result of they’ve truly woken up.
39 min: Ooh, that’s without a doubt higher from the hosts. Digne lays within for Lookman, who fizzes a *dream* of a low centre throughout however discovers that Everton don’t truly have a centre-ahead available in the market. Nobody is playing and Bournemouth live on. Bernard is then booked for a past due problem.
38 min: This finish-to-finish spell continues with a nook for Everton, who’re simply livening up a little bit. Lerma thuds it away, unchallenged.
36 min: It’s no longer truly a top-high quality recreation however it’s without a doubt rather open and decently paced. Everton nod away a disappointing Fraser nook, after which Fraser will get every other cross however centres too just about Pickford. There’s a function or two on this one.
34 min: … which Richarlison offers with, profitable two consecutive headers. Everton then spoil via the similar participant however he can’t pick Lookman … however they retain attacking and Clyne defends excellently on the again publish to forestall Lookman from getting a shot clear of Bernard’s pass.
33 min: The superb Brooks is fouled about 35 yards out, at a slight perspective at the proper. It’s excellent for a supply into the field, this. Fraser’s kick is flicked out by means of Keane for a nook …
31 min: A quieter short while, adopted by means of Everton’s first vaguely scintillating second, Lookman operating away at the proper and crossing for Bernard, who’s awkwardly positioned and will’t direct his header close to function. Will Bournemouth remorseful about no longer scoring in that first part-hour?
28 min: Fraser darts in to intercept every other sloppy Pickford clearance and crosses for King, who heads a quite tough probability over. Everton must get up or they’ll lose; Bournemouth glance significantly better.
27 min: From the nook, Everton can’t absolutely transparent and Lerma shoots in opposition to his personal guy earlier than Gosling fires into the stand.
26 min: Smith will get up, at duration, and this doubtlessly very bad set-piece may also be taken. Stanislas steps up … and forces Pickford right into a to hand tip around the publish with a low, bouncing effort curled around the wall.
24 min: Bournemouth stay the extra lucid in ownership and Brooks can’t rather in finding Fraser on the finish of a affected person transfer. Then a mix of Gueye and Gomes concedes a unfastened-kick simply out of doors the field – inflicting Smith some ache …
22 min: They are angered, despite the fact that, by means of a past due problem by means of Ake at the hitherto invisible Richarlison that is going unpunished. They’re no longer too satisfied, both, when Zouma performs Pickford into bother and forces a moved quickly clearance out of play.
21 min: It’s quite quiet within Goodison. You can listen the avid gamers’ shouts rather very easily. There’s the low hum of a crowd moderately looking ahead to issues to occur. At the instant there’s little signal of that from Everton.
18 min: For the primary time Everton set up some sustained force and ownership, even though not anything effects bar some gentle purses between Gosling and Gomes. They’ll want to fortify hugely on that first 15 mins.
16 min: Everton win a nook at the left, despite the fact that. Zouma fees onto Digne’s supply however Bournemouth have sufficient our bodies in situ to transparent.
14 min: Brooks hits the publish! He’s performed via within the within-proper place by means of Stanislas and onside, with simply Pickford to overcome. He rolls the ball around the keeper delicately … nevertheless it moves the interior of the some distance publish and pings out. Bournemouth, a lot the easier facet thus far, truly will have to be forward.
11 min: It’s a excellent short while of force from Bournemouth and the extremely concerned Brooks seeks a penalty, flinging himself down as he seems to surge into the field past Gueye. There gave the impression to be a tangle of legs however Brooks additionally looked to be tugging Gueye’s blouse, so it’s the proper resolution from a neatly-located Anthony Taylor.
eight min: Chance for Josh King! Coleman can handiest look a proper-sided supply out to an unattended Fraser, whose first contact makes a shot unimaginable however can lower the ball again from the byline. It is going via a defender’s legs to King, who’s tightly marshaled and will handiest get a part-touch as he jabs at it, permitting Pickford to smother at shut vary.
7 min: Lookman will get himself out of a decent spot with an exquisite flip within his personal part. He’s a ability alright, however Everton want to get him in the suitable spaces lately.
6 min: “The comments from Moshiri are a bit of a storm in a teacup,” writes Rick Jackson. “Taken in context, they have been extra of a remark of the most obvious. We’re a piece-in-growth and maximum Everton lovers are pleased with the growth made thus far. This time remaining 12 months, we have been depressing and pissed off, moderately than simply pissed off like now.”
four min: Now a glimmer for Everton, Sigurdsson’s bad unfastened-kick from the suitable ricocheting off a few avid gamers and forcing Begovic to grab all the way down to his proper facet.
three min: Coleman makes a decision its time to turn Fraser he’s in fact there, clipping him past due and inflicting him to wince as he walks away. He’ll be superb however that’s already a competition to control.
1 min: A shiny early sortie from Bournemouth, Fraser skipping clear of Coleman at the left earlier than laying again for Stanislas. His leg is cocked however Bernard does fantastically to trace again and snick the ball away.
Ha – it recently works!
The groups are strolling out of Everton’s tight, outdated-faculty tunnel at Goodison – most likely the league’s most elderly-global venue this present day. Z-Cars is whistling loud and transparent … we’re virtually in a position!
Great to peer Lookman get a cross (even though you’d surprise, too, whether or not Walcott could be all however performed at a workforce with pretentions to the highest 10). It’s handiest his 6th get started within the league for Everton, however he inspired in scoring in opposition to Lincoln within the cup remaining weekend.
And whilst we stay up for this one, Arsenal and Chelsea are dealing with off in a large Women’s Super League conflict. Nick Miller has it:
I’m , Everton lovers, for your view of Silva. Surely he wishes extra time earlier than Moshiri begins getting cause satisfied, no? Does he want to be put beneath such force at this level? Or is a kick up the whatnots desperately required? Email/tweet away.
The large takeaways from that workforce information are that Ademola Lookman will get a – ahem – glance in for Everton, with Theo Walcott benched. For Bournemouth there’s a large blow, as a result of Callum Wilson is injured and doesn’t make it. Liverpool loanee Nathaniel Clyne begins, despite the fact that.
Everton: Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne; Gueye, Gomes; Lookman, Sigurdsson, Bernard; Richarlison. Subs: Stekelenburg, Walcott, Mina, Tosun, Davies, Calvert-Lewin, Kenny.
Bournemouth: Begovic; Clyne, Ake, Cook, Smith; Gosling, Lerma, Brooks; Stanislas, King, Fraser. Subs: Boruc, Surman, Mousset, Ibe, Daniels, Rico, Simpson.
Is Marco Silva the second one coming? Is he a TERRIBLE FRAUD? Is he, most likely, an OK supervisor doing an OK task with an OK workforce at a membership whose expectancies shouldn’t be sky top simply but? I depart that each one to you, however the naked truth is that he’s beneath force to ship nowadays. His facet’s intentions had been excellent and one of the crucial soccer has been really easy at the eye; the consequences aren’t truly coming despite the fact that, as one win of their remaining 8 Premier League video games will let you know, and they’re having a look distinctly like Just Another Mid-Table Side a few of the department’s 289,845 others.
So they in finding themselves stage on issues with – however 9 objectives higher than – Bournemouth, whose supervisor has indubitably performed an excellent task certainly. There was once rather numerous pleasure previous within the season when Eddie Howe’s facet climbed to inside of a couple of puts of the Champions League contenders however, with two wins from their remaining 12, that’s been tempered somewhat. They’ve most certainly discovered their position, in reality: they’re no longer taking place and gained’t end an ideal deal upper. None of which is an issue for them at this level, truly.
Not that they gained’t be gagging to to hit shape lately! It will have to be a nice affair between two facets that play excellent, entrance-footed stuff. And whoever wins would possibly simply inject themselves with some a lot-wanted momentum. Stick with us – kick-off is at 2.15pm UK time!
