The English forward scored twice as to give Bournemouth an emphatic victory over Everton.

Callum Wilson scored twice as the Cherries earned their second win of the season. The forward opened the scoring for Eddie Howe’s side in the 23rd minute after Joshua King’s close-range miss. That was the striker’s first Premier League goal at the Vitality Stadium since January.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored to draw Everton F.C. level in the 44th minute with a towering header, his first league goal since March. Substitute Ryan Fraser scored in the 67th minute to give the Cherries the lead before Callum Wilson scored his second of the game to seal the victory for Eddie Howe lads.

Bournemouth gaffer Eddie Howe was satisfied with his side’s performance saying it was a huge performance having won their first home game of the season. “Psychologically, it was hugely important to win that first home game which is why today was a huge moment in our season” the gaffer was quoted as saying.

The Cherries were winless in their last two games – having lost their previous two games against Manchester City and Leicester City and have now moved to the eighth position on the log with this win over Everton. The Cherries are still chasing a first clean sheet of the season.

Toffees manager Marco Silva was disappointed with his side showing. “There’s a big frustration because we lost the game and gave some things too easily to our opponent” the Portuguese gaffer was quoted as saying.

Marco Silva opted to start Calvert-Lewin in place of Moise Kean signed from Italian side Juventus F.C. The Toffees have now conceded seven goals in their past three league games. Everton are set to host newly-promoted side Sheffield United F.C on Saturday at Goodison Park. Marco Silva lads are now placed eleventh on the Premier League log.
