Everton put in a desperately below par performance at Bournemouth, losing 1-0.

Stanislas scored the decisive goal on 23 minutes to give Bournemouth a deserved 3 points over a below-par Everton who just never got going.

Lukaku recovered from a toe problem picked up in last weekend’s win over Middlesbrough but Bryan Oviedo come in for Leighton Baines who missed out with a hamstring injury.

Gareth Barry was deemed fit enough to start despite carrying an ankle problem and took his place in the starting line-up alongside Idrissa Gueye.

Maarten Stekelenburg continued in goal, Seamus Coleman plays at right-back with Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams at the heart of Everton’s defence.

Yannick Bolasie, Ross Barkley and Kevin Mirallas provided the attacking support for Lukaku.
