    That's it - a welcome win for the hosts, and another defeat for the visitors as their season peters out.

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Every Tony Hibbert touch is still getting the "shoooooot" treatment, and to be fair he has had a good 40-odd minutes.

    Matt Ritchie then pulls a long-range shot wide of Tim Howard's left post.

    Ross Barkley is replaced by midfield Academy graduate Kieran Dowell, making his Premier League debut.

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth really pressing and keeping the ball, but not giving Howard and Everton much to worry about around the penalty area.

  6. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Charlie Daniels gets to the line on the left, but his chipped cross floats behind the goal.

  7. CLOSE!

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth go close again!

    A great run from Callum Wilson, who pulls the ball back from the right to Benik Afobe, who nods powerfully over when he should have hit the target, especially from such close range.

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    John Stones strides downfield, swapping passes with Aaron Lennon and Ross Barkley but the attack peters out when Leighton Baines tries to feed the ball in from the left.

    Bournemouth race away, but Junior Stanislas' shot curls high and wide of Howard's goal.

  9. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth claim a penalty when Stones clashes with Wilson, appearing to catch him with his arm. Referee Neil Swarbrick waves them away, but the Everton defender has the look of a man who knows he's got away with one.

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Benik Afobe gets a chance to equalise, but Matthew Pennington does superbly to block his volley inside the area.

  11. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Can that double change give Bournemouth a boost? Everton very much in control now.

    Artur Boruc

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Junior Stanislas and Benik Afobe replace Joshua King and Marc Pugh for Bournemouth.

  13. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    The home side go hunting a third, and it is Tony Hibbert on the end of the move - however his long wait for a first Everton goal - 329 games - goes on as his effort loops up into Boruc's arms.

  14. GOAL

    Everton 2-1 Bournemouth

    Leighton Baines restores the lead, a bobbling Aaron Lennon cross from the right finding the left-back on the other side of the area, allowing him to slam the ball in from an angle.

    Everton 1-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth win a free-kick in a promising area 25 yards put, but Matt Ritchie's effort lacks venom and goes straight at Howard.

    Roberto Martinez

    Everton 1-1 Bournemouth

    Romelu Lukaku replaces Oumar Niasse.

  17. Post update

    Everton 1-1 Bournemouth

    Close for Bournemouth! Joshua King tells Callum Wilson to leave a low cross from the left, and rifles a shot from 25 yards just wide of the left-hand post. 

    Within seconds, Wilson has a go from a tight angle and finds the side-netting.

    Everton 1-1 Bournemouth

    Neither side seem able to hold onto possession long enough to threaten the other at the moment - the game has resumed its pre-break stupor.

  19. Post update

    Everton 1-1 Bournemouth

    A Callum Wilson backheel inside the area only finds an Everton foot - top marks for effort, though.

  20. Post update

    Everton 1-1 Bournemouth

    A corner comes all the way out to halfway and Hibbert, who gets a chorus of "Shoooooooot!" - only half in jest. He's never scored for Everton and there's little threat of any more goals today at the moment.
