Wilson’s Brace Helps Bournemouth Defeat Everton

Callum Wilson scored a brace for Bournemouth as they enjoyed a 3-1 home victory over a defensively fragile Everton side to move into mid-table in the Premier League on Sunday.

Wilson nodded the hosts into the lead from a corner in the 23rd minute only for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to level it up with a header just before the break – Everton’s first away goal in the league this season.

Ryan Fraser‘s dangerous ball into the area flicked off Everton’s Fabian Delph in the 67th minute to restore Bournemouth’s lead before Wilson exploited some dreadful defending five minutes later.

Having lost their previous two league games, against Leicester and Manchester City, Bournemouth kick-started their campaign with a thoroughly deserved first home league win, lifting them to eighth in the table.

Everton, who could have gone third with a win, are now 11th, below Bournemouth on goal difference with both clubs having seven points from five games.
