Koeman unsurprised by Niasse's Everton revival

Therefore, when the final whistle blew and Everton came out with all three points, the relief in the stadium was palpable.

Everton are aiming to avoid losing four PL matches in a row for the first time since January 2015.

Bournemouth have had problems scoring goals this season. Of all the No10s at Koeman's disposal it seemed a trifle odd to choose Davy Klaassen for the central role.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman says Republic of Ireland midfielder James McCarthy still struggling to regain fitness, but expects the 41-cap worldwide to return to training next week. "Any ex-players and all my family say 'play as long as possible because there'll be plenty of time to sit back and do different things'".

"Ronald Koeman's team hit a plateau of two draws before the swooping plunge again of four straight defeats without scoring".

This game should put this desire to bed.

Everton poured forward and Niasse, who replaced Rooney in the 55th minute, expertly controlled a pass from Tom Davies and slammed the ball into the net before bundling home a second five minutes later to give his side a much-needed win. They are now 18th in the Premier League and look far from challenging for a top 4 spot and for all the money they've spent, they could be struggling to secure a Europa League spot. "Good performances usually bring winning games", he said.

Oumar Niasse is delighted with his fresh chance at Everton.

"I hope they don't against us but they have good players and a good manager and I am sure they will be up there at the end of the season".

He was not given a squad number at the start of the season, was demoted to the U23s, and wasn't even given a locker at the club.

Now Koeman has to swallow his pride and consider the player for a starting spot. Martin Atkinson was possibly correct in seeing nothing untoward in the first one, when Gylfi Sigurdsson appeared to be pushed over in the area, though the referee must have felt a little awkward in waving play on after a challenge by Simon Francis on Wayne Rooney when he saw the Everton player regain his feet with blood pouring from an eye wound.

Nevertheless, the Cherries followed their Premier League win over Brighton by toppling the same opponents in the cup four days later, courtesy of Joshua King's extra-time strike. After all, their fixtures so far have been very tough, having already played Arsenal and Manchester City.

"I thought we were the dominant team", Howe told BBC Sport. If you play for titles, or for European football, the next game is always the most important.

"The first half was ok. We had chances to kill the game but at 1-0 they always have a chance".

A sluggish Everton attack broke down and Bournemouth countered at pace - King bursting through the middle before slotting calmly across Jordan Pickford.

"No-one can stop him at the moment, he did well and all the credit is to the player".
