Williams Reaches 50 Appearances For Blues

@Everton

Dominic Calvert-Lewin retains his place as of Everton's attacking spearhead for this afternoon's Premier League encounter with Bournemouth following the youngster's two-goal blast against Sunderland on Wednesday night.

With Michael Keane and Phil Jagielka both missing out through injury, there is a place at the heart of defence for Mason Holgate.

England Under-21 player Holgate will be partnered in the middle of the Blues' back four by Ashley Williams - on his 50th Everton appearance - with Cuco Martina and captain Leighton Baines operating in their customary full-back positions.

Davy Klaassen is selected in what looks like a three-man midfield, Idrissa Gana Gueye and Morgan Schneiderlin completing Everton engine-room the trio.

Calvert-Lewin is supported in the Blues' forward line by Club-record signing Gylfi Sigurdsson and Wayne Rooney, who missed out on the Carabao Cup tie with Sunderland.

Tom Davies, Ademola Lookman, Jonjoe Kenny, Nikola Vlasic and Sandro Ramirez are named on a youthful Toffees bench, alongside Oumar Niasse - after the Senegalese's goalscoring cameo in midweek - and goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.
