Kick-off: Saturday, 5:15pm
Venue: The Vitality Stadium
Coverage: Sky Sports 1, BBC 5 Live
Home form: LLWWD
Away form: LWWWL
Last meeting: 3-3
Competition: The FA Cup

Even though Bournemouth lost their last two Premier League games, The Cherries once again showed their great motivation and gave everything they could to earn something from these matches. They turned things around against Portsmouth in the previous round of The FA Cup. If Bournemouth play the same way against Everton, The Cherries stand a good chance of going through.

Lukaku and Barkley are in very good form and just can’t stop scoring! If you want to keep Everton quiet, your defenders should keep them quiet. West Brom managed to keep a clean sheet and won 1-0 against Everton in the last Premier League round. The Baggies showed Bournemouth what to do against The Toffees!

Bournemouth and Everton finished with a spectacular 3-3 draw at the Vitality Stadium earlier this season. That was the first ever meeting between these two teams. Funes Mori and Romelu Lukaku gave The Toffees a 2-0 advantage, but Smith and Stanislas equalized. Ross Barkley scored for Everton in the 90th minute, but in the very last second Stanislas scored his second of the game and the match ended with a final score of 3-3.
