There is a promise of goals as Everton travel to AFC Bournemouth to play the third-highest average-scoring fixture in Premier League history.

Lewis Cook played in a behind-closed-doors friendly over the international break and has an outside chance of being in the squad, says Eddie Howe.

Summer signing Lloyd Kelly (ankle) is scheduled to return to full training on Friday but remains out. No players who missed AFC Bournemouth's last match are set to return. 

Everton have no new injury concerns with only Jean-Philippe Gbamin (thigh) unable to be called upon.
