Everton faces a critical match against Bournemouth in their final game of the season. With 33 points, they must secure a win to fend off competition from Leeds and Leicester for Premier League survival. 

Despite Bournemouth’s recent losing streak and absence of stakes, Everton cannot let their guard down. Injuries to key players like Calvert Lewin, Mykolenko, and Patterson create added pressure for the team. Now is the time for players like Demarai Gray and Holgate to step up and make a difference. 


The Breakdown:

Everton’s current season has been rough. The team has only won once in their last 10 Premier League matches and could set a new record with an 11th home league defeat. This is especially concerning considering the fact that the Toffees have not been relegated since 1950-51, second only to Arsenal for their active run in the top flight since 1964-55. 

Everton has previously dodged relegation on the final day of a Premier League season twice. In both 1993-94 and 1997-98, the team secured victories and avoided relegation. Currently, they have 33 points, and the record for the fewest points by a team that managed to avoid relegation is held by West Brom; they had 34 points back in 2004-05. 


Sean Dyche’s Dilemma:

On the other side, Burnley’s manager Sean Dyche has a solid record against Bournemouth, having won six of his eight Premier League matches against them but lost the other two. However, there is a bit of a dark cloud over Dyche’s final weekend performances; he has lost in each of his last five Premier League seasons, with four of these defeats happening at home.

Sean Dyche will also have to navigate a substantial injury list on the final day of competition. One notable absence is Dominic Calvert-Lewin, a key contributor to Everton’s offensive arsenal. Additionally, Seamus Coleman, Andros Townsend, and Nathan Patterson will not be available for play. The fitness of Tom Davies, Conor Coady, Ben Godfrey, and Vitalii Mykolenko remains uncertain and will be assessed prior to the game.

Sean Dyche may look to Demarai Gray for an additional attacking threat while Everton’s most notable forward is out. Another option maybe Ellis Simms, but this may be too big of a game to gamble on a relatively unproven young player.



Everton’s future rests entirely on their performance in this match. The fans from around the world will be watching and praying for a much-needed victory to secure their place in English football’s top tier. 

Don’t let us down.


Prediction: 2-0
