But it was Marco Silva's men started the brighter side as they took control of the game in the opening exchanges.

Richarlison had his 19th minute dipping shot hit the cross bar and at the other end, Dominic Solanke forced an acrobatic save from Jordan Pickford for a corner kick.

But one quality delivery from Richarlison put the Toffees back on level terms as a towering header from Dominic Calvert-Lewin made it 1-1 a minute just before half time.

In the 67th minute, Ryan Fraser's drove in a hard and low free-kick that deceived the Everton defence and Pickford in goal to make it 2-1.

Three minutes later, Everton defence were caught napping again as Wilson latched on to a through ball from Diego Rico and the England striker volleyed home to make it 3-1 to the home side.

A real chance for the Toffees to get themselves back into the match came in the 81st minute as Alex Iwobi's outside 18-yard shot was smartly saved by Ramsdale and Richarlison could get the follow up on target.

Bournemouth held on to record a crucial win that lifts them from 16th position to eighth on the Premier League table while Evreton dropped to 11th.
