Romelu Lukaku is expected to return to the fray after missing the EFL Cup defeat to Norwich City on Tuesday night with a toe injury.
AFC Bournemouth have never beaten Everton in six previous attempts in all competitions (D1 L5), with their only draw coming in this fixture last season.
Everton have hit at least two goals in all of their six previous meetings with the Cherries in all competitions, including seven in three matches last season.
AFC Bournemouth netted three times in the last 10 minutes of this fixture last season to secure a 3-3 draw; Junior Stanislas’ equaliser was timed at 97:13 - the second-latest goal in the PL last season after John Terry (97:53), also v Everton.
Everton have won four of their first five PL matches in 2016/17 – on the last two occasions they won five of their opening six top-flight matches in a season they went on to win the title (1969-70 and 1962-63).
Eddie Howe: "Everton have added pace this season in the middle and wide areas. They have goalscorers as well, so we expect a tough game."
Ronald Koeman: "We have had a good start, maybe better than some expected. But we have a strong team and we work hard every day to improve."
