Everton vs Bournemouth predictions: Nervy stalemate on the cards at Goodison Park
- Everton have racked up 12 draws in the Premier League this season
- Bournemouth have lost each of their last three league games
- Recommended bet: Draw
It is crunch time in the Premier League with the final day of the season approaching and one game which will attract plenty of attention is Everton's tussle with Bournemouth at Goodison Park.
The match on Merseyside will play a significant role in the Premier League relegation battle with Everton in 17th spot going into the final day.
A win for the Toffees would secure their survival and ensure they avoid a first relegation since 1951, while they could also stay up with a defeat, provided that Leeds fail to beat Tottenham and Leicester do not win against West Ham.
Everton's fate is in their own hands but a nervy atmosphere is expected at Goodison Park, where they will welcome a Bournemouth team already assured of Premier League football for next season.
Everton have a pretty lengthy injury list featuring Seamus Coleman, Vitaliy Mykolenko, Ruben Vinagre and Andros Townsend, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Nathan Patterson are also doubts in what could prove to be a double blow for the Toffees.
Visitors Bournemouth, meanwhile, will be without Marcus Tavernier, Joe Rothwell, Ryan Fredericks and Junior Stanislas.
Hamed Traore and Philip Billing, meanwhile, are to be assessed.
Everton have recorded 12 draws in this season's Premier League, four of which have come since the start of April.
As for Bournemouth, they have lost each of their last three league games, having scored only once in the process.
The Toffees have failed to win 13 of their 18 home games in this term's Premier League.
Sunday's clash with Bournemouth will be a huge occasion for Sean Dyche and Everton and the club's supporters will be doing their best to get behind their team at Goodison Park.
A first relegation since 1951 looms but the club at least have their fate in their own hands thanks to Yerry Mina's 99th-minute equaliser away to Wolves last Saturday.
Make no mistake it has been a disastrous season for Everton. But they have shown signs of promise recently, losing just one of their last four matches and recording one of the shocks of the season when they thumped Brighton 5-1 earlier this month.
A win is definitely in reach for Dyche's men and would certainly ease the nerves around Goodison Park, but Everton have failed to win 13 of their 18 home league matches this season.
The likely absence of striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will not help matters and at 15/4 with LiveScore Bet, the draw looks the better selection.
Since the start of April, Everton have drawn with Tottenham, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Wolves in the Premier League and a share of the spoils could be on the cards on the final day of the season.
