Premier League: Everton vs. AFC Bournemouth [Predictions, Live Stream]
The Premier League continues with the sixth week of the 38-week season. Here is everything you need to know about Everton versus AFC Bournemouth.
Everton takes on Bournemouth at Goodison Park in Liverpool on Saturday as the Premier League enters Matchday 6 of the 38-week season.
Kickoff is slated for 10 a.m. ET on Sept. 23. Although the matchday is being broadcast by multiple providers for those who call the game football, soccer fans in the U.S. will have to subscribe to the Premier League Pass on NBC Sports Gold. The Premier League Pass costs $50.
About 250 Premier League games this season will be televised on NBC, NBCSN and CNBC or available for streaming on NBC Sports Live. Another 130 games will be available exclusively on NBC Sports Gold.
It’s been an utter nightmare of a start to the 2017/18 Premier League campaign for Everton, a side very much favored to at least break the top-10 of the table this season.
But three successive losses to Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United leave the Toffees in the relegation zone in 18th place with just four points through its first five matches.
They’ve managed to score just two goals in the process as the departure of Romelu Lukaku has clearly affected the club.
Instead, Everton has had to rely on the aging Wayne Rooney, making his return to his hometown club after 14 years with Man United. He’s provided both Premier League goals this season, leaving the Merseysiders yearning for supporting help.
Things are even worse for Bournemouth, who sit one place beneath Everton.
While their season started with four-straight losses (West Bromwich, Watford, Manchester City, Arsenal), the Cherries nicked their first victory of the season last weekend against Premier League newcomers Brighton & Hove Albion.
